Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Water Margin (Aka All Men are Brothers) are two of the popular Four Great Chinese Classical Literature Novels. All men are brothers or Water Margin 108 heros of the marsh is another of my favourite book which i bought read over and over again and again, games from Koei which i played for days since young in those old 286, 386 pcs. But unfortunately Koei had not develope their Water Margin PC games further. What a waste! This is another great game from Koei like RTK game series. Nowadays most are web based games from Facebook, and other websites, all are linked internet games. Koei might want to reconsider developing a game with the details of RTK games series and as well as Water Margin game. No doubt that many old and new gamers out there will be crazy about it (IF the game play is deep and with more that the usual characters from the stories).

Founder of the marsh brotherhood

Chao Gai (Great in virture, trust, brotherhood and charismatic but insist on killing corrupt officials and splitting the gold, treasures among themselves/heros and purchase troops, horses and armours instead of helping the poors and villagers in need. Later killed by Shi Wengong’s poison arrow from the Zeng family rebels and Song Jiang was replaced as the 108 hero’s leader, well respected, trust, honest, helpful, filial piety and insist on non violence)

An extremely sad story between Song Jiang and Yan Poxi deplicted by All men are brothers, Yan Poxi a young 18 years old flowering and extremely beautiful and attractive songtress girl fell deeply in love with Song Jiang (At his older age). But Song Jiang had a previous marriage and his wife had passed away and Song Jiang plegded to remained single and will not remarry for 3 years.
