Summary: ROTK11 is a good follow up in the genre. I've been playing this series since Wall of Fire (and Koei's games since Genghis Khan), and each one has been an improvement from the last, but not without hiccups. I'll touch on some of my own experiences with them, since all the good things about this game have pretty much been laid out. A couple things ticked me off.
Summary: I was a huge fan of this series when it forst began all throw the super nes versions.I finally came back to the series with this installment and as i played i was having so much fun i ended up calling a friend telling them how cool it was.Then the first battle begun.I had several more troops (completely trained up) and several genrals with much better skilsl than the forces that was being thrown at me.yet in no time at all i found myself overwelmed by several generals...
Summary: I have been a fan of Romance of the Three Kingdoms ever since the first one came out on the NES. I played that one at a friends house for the first time, and we would play for hours trying to outthink one another on the battlefield. The game has certainly come a long way, and this installment really challenges you to think ahead and plan your attacks carefully.
Summary: This is the best version of the Romance of the Three Kingdoms franchise to date. If there was a PS3 version, I would've tried that one instead. The gameplay is good, but I think that it's probably about time for a revamp of the nation-building strategy and the combat. The addition of the scenarios is a nice twist.

Summary: Romance of the Three Kingdoms XI is yet another installment of the classic Chinese strategy game. If you're a fan of the RotTK series, you're sure to enjoy this one! This is a very immersive strategy game, and you need to accept that it'll take a long time to play. Not long as in "millions of maps that you get to explore while non-stop fighting your enemies". It's long as in "first you have to build your barracks. Then you have to slowly build up your enemy.
Summary: This game takes a good long while to get into. Even the game itself cops to it. When you are playing through the tutorial (with an unusually retarded Liu Bei I might add) your character will comment on how long it takes to actually get an army onto the field of battle. First you have to build barracks, then recruit guys, then drill the guys, then build a smith to create weapons, then make the weapons. Dear me, that's a lot of hand sitting.
