Total War: Three Kingdoms is as close to flawless as you'll find, with a fantastic balance of 4X strategy and character-focused development and emergent storytelling. The battles are frantic, with increased tactical opportunities through duelling. City development is more intuitive and less restrictive, though still requires thought and all of this takes place on a China that looks downright fantastic, where even the UI and menus look great. This is the Total War experience and a new high for the series.
The overall presentation from Creative Assembly is superb. Loading screen art and cutscenes are consistently stellar. For a person who had no real knowledge or interest in Chinese history, the art was a real eye catcher for me. Three Kingdoms won’t be a perfect fit for all players, but series die-hards will find a lot to like and newcomers are sure to be impressed with the AAA-quality presentation, despite the high system requirements.
While those looking for the pure historical war experience may find themselves wanting a bit more, with such a critical emphasis on the commanders and their supreme battlefield presence, those willing to indulge in a more prodigious past have lots to enjoy. With strict historical adherence out the window and a bit of a streamlined tactical combat experience, Three Kingdoms still has a lot to offer the strategy enthusiast.
