KOEI’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms RTK Game Series
Since young I had being playing Koei’s RTK Sango/Romance of the Three Kingdoms games (asmara dari tiga kerajaan game) (Started from PC, computer version 2, until version 11, XI and now version 12, XII) Some of the versions I might had missed out in between, but I had already forgotten which I had played and which I had missed out. But the impression was one that of a fantastic game play due to the many Three Kingdoms heros which Koei had programmed (Although not all Romance of the Three Kingdoms heros had being captured or programmed into the game play) into each and every one of it’s versions. I remember I even played over night without sleep just to play and fight endless battles. Another game feature which I like in Koei’s RTK game series is it’s character creation function. I will alway alway creation new characters so that I can deploy them out into the game to fight other Three Kingdoms periods heros. I will create heros from Water Margin 108 list of heros with strong attributes, so that I can also fight against them during the game play. And with now Koei’s Romance of the Three Kingdoms version 11 and 12. Their games are now even better. But the sad news which I saw in the internet was that Koei might be stopping RTK game development, but if this is real. I am not able to confirm it. And I sincerely hope this is not real and that Koei can continue developing great RTK versions 13, 14, 15, 16 and on and on forever!
Although version 12 is out but I felt (RTK 12 reviews) that it lagged the dept of version 11. Example the duel between two generals was changed from the full 3D controlled fight scene to that of a computer control fight. But I like the management and the battles as now you can see who is/are doing what activity for you. This is better than that of RTK 11, where you cannot see what are your staffs/team/generals/advisors doing. As for version 10 (I think it was from version 10). I like the path of the individual wandering general. This was taken out in RTK version 11 and 12 totally. But thank Koei that the lightning strike tactic is still there until now in version 11 (As I had just started to play version 12) with some characters like Zhang bao and Zhang Jiao having the special lightning strike ability and its AWESOME! And of course many many more special attacks like mountain, fire, etc. Just Solid!!
Following are some pictures to keep all the Koei’s RTK Romance of the Three Kingdoms games alive and in memory (Versions from PC, computer, Playstation, Playstation2, Sega Saturn, etc, I am also wondering if there are Xbox, Nintendo Wii, handphones full versions, etc versions? As I had seen some smaller RTK versions sized down for mobile handphone play)
