Description of Bandit Kings of Ancient China

Close to 600 years after the events chronicled in KOEI's better-known Romance of The Three Kingdoms, the weak royal court inspired the rise of legendary bandits who proclaimed themselves kings.

This game is best described as a more difficult RTK, because although the setting and gameplay remain the same, you start out in exile and must fight many stronger opponents. Personnel management and resource allocation, therefore, become much more important here. A good game, if little differentiated from RTK.
