Jul 6, 2016It is a shame, then, that this is such a clunky, ugly mess of a game. It is rare enough that an English version of a Romance of the Three Kingdoms comes to Western shores by any other way than import and it makes me sad that – this – will be the first experience with the series for new players.

This is a great game, GREAT game but why 9 but not 10? There a large amount of little bugs in game, that makes -0.5, the price makes -0.5. I mean, based on a Chinese famous story line, million of Chinese buyers are ready to pay for the game, but a price like 300 RMB is 1/10 of monthly salary, which is nearly unacceptable. If Koei want to make a good deal, be successful, sells a million, it is necessary that the RTK13 PK is on a better pricing, or give original buyers a little advantage. If not, we all know 80*100000=800 000, and 40*1000 000=4 000 000, it is not double !… Full Review »

Sep 1, 2017I am a die hard RoTK fan, been playing this series since the RoTK II back in the 80's. I am very sorry to say RoTK XIII is a failure for me.I am a die hard RoTK fan, been playing this series since the RoTK II back in the 80's. I am very sorry to say RoTK XIII is a failure for me. Here's why:
1. You can't transfer troops. The idea of every city has it's own troops type that you can deploy upon research, is not a bad idea, but then to make the troops not transferable to other city is a huge mistake. In the reality, when a troops won a battle, sometimes they are station there as the permanent troops of that city. Like in history when some notorious general is given a new post, his long serving soldiers or elite troops will be brought as well to the new post.
2. If you are a ruller, you have to go visit every single of your officer one by one if you want to increase their loyalty. You can't send them gift or gold just by command, you have to travel to their home YOURSELF. This is ridiculous, because I don;t think there is any ruler that has to go door to door to beg for loyalty of his subject.
3. The battle system is ok, but still, I miss the option of challenging the opponent officer to a duel and also the option of using several tactics like setting fire, shooting fire arrows, throwing boulders, taunt, perturb, misinform, ambush, blunder, etc, like in RoTK XI.
The only pro for this game is that it has better graphics than the previous series, that's all.… Full Review »
