As a huge fan of the Chinese classic, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, I was delighted when the following video appeared on my Facebook feed:
The Total War series is one I have always been aware of. I spent a lot of time on Rome: Total War and a little on the second Medieval titles, along with Empire: Total War. More recently, I have spent a huge amount of time on Total War: Warhammer. It’s a fantastic game and really captures a fictional world that I love dearly.
Ancient China is obviously not a fictional world, but Romance of the Three Kingdoms features a mix of history with myth and legend. I cannot wait to play as Cao Cao, the Han chancellor who went on to establish Cao Wei. I’m excited at the prospect of fielding Lu Bu and playing out my favourite events of the book. The Yellow Turban Rebellion and the battles of Red Cliffs and Yiling stand out as great prospects.
I think I’m going to have to go and re-read my copy of the book. That alone is a really exciting prospect. I wonder if there are any cool miniatures of the main characters…
