Excerpt: This is a review on a cool; strategically game called Romance Of The Three Kingdoms VIII, yes that is a pretty long winded name, but as most things, names can be deceiving. This game is a good strategy game, but nothing more then a strategy game. If you do not like Strategy games, then stay away from this game.
Summary: This version of RTK is the best by far in my opinion. To do away with all the melodrama of other critics...this is one is the most versatile of all the series. The "growing pains" of your created character are directly impacted within the RTK world you play in. Lets be for real, what are the chances of a 90 rated free officer offering his services to a new jack? The concept of getting to know an free officer and building relations was great.
Summary: This game could be the best strategy game I have ever played. There is a lot of in-depth political strategies that only get more complicated the higher up the food chain your characters get. I'm guessing that if you looked this game up that you know at least a bit about the series, and that this is the best of the series, though I am yet to play Romance 9. I highly suggest picking it up if you get the chance, and if you really, REALLY like political strategy games.
Summary: The reaon I like this game is because,you get to wander,enlist,revolt,or unify China!!!When I first got a look at the game,I couldn't take my eyes off of it.You could choose to be a commander,a prefect,a warlord,or you could follow your dreams.I'm saving up my money to buy the game.I can't wait until Christmas than I can play all day long!!!! And like the game says,"Brave souls,Came forth"!
Summary: I have been playing the ROTK games by Koei for several years. And every single time Koei does a terrific job, of adding just enough new aspects to the game play to make me come back for each new installment. If you are new to the series or to Koei games in general, this may not be the best place to start. I myself would recommend starting with more popular, more ACTION-based games by Koei. The first place to go for this is the Dynasty Warriors series.
Summary: This game had me hooked for quite awhile. I first rented it just awhile back (I never played any other ROTK or DW games) and loved it. At first I made my own officer becuase I didn't know it was based off a book. It took me awhile also to learn the tactics to use against other people. After I returned it I rented it a day later becaused I loved it so much. Then I rented DW 4, which I thought was the hack & slash version of ROTK 8.
Summary: First off, let me start by saying this game is NOT for the attention deficient set. It is slow and and hard to get into. Even I had a hard time getting into it at first. You can only wage war once every three months which makes it hard to build momentum when you have to go to war, then stop and invest or farm or some other domestic concern.
Summary: I gave it a 2 stars only because I loved the stroy so much and that's why I bought this game. Graphic is just way out of date and too much of planning. One example, Liu Bei will not and shouldn't never have to ask Zang Fei for any advice?! Zang is known for his low Int.!!! and why when Zang makes a suggestion such as doing this or that there need to be a screen for ruler Liu to ok or not??!!?
This is the best strategy game i have ever played!!

Summary: This is my first time playing a rotk game but I have played the DW games by Koie and i loved them so I decided to try out this game to see if it was all it was cracked up to be. And I have never been so pleased with a strategy game. Ther is very little repetition between playes, u can be vertuly any general u want from the age of the "Three Kingdoms" period, and well..this game is great.
Summary: I rented this, and spent a weekend learning and playing it. I am not a huge fan of the series, but I am very well aware of its stories, and had played through basically 3-7 all the way. This one had to be the worst. The graphic is even worse then 7, you might as well play it on a PS1, or even a super nintendo will do. The music is very repetitive, and drives me mad after a little while.
