Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare, Daniel Defoe - names that every British school child holds dear, & whose rip-roaring tales of love, life và derring-bởi vì in these sceptred isles never fail khổng lồ hold teary-eyed readers spellbound... Well maybe they don"t have sầu quite that effect, but at least you"ve sầu heard of them. Now what if I said to lớn you - Luo Guanzhong. Then you"d look at me blankly or say bless you. But you might say, "Ah yes, Luo Guanzhong, the famous 14th-century novemenu, author of The Three Kingdoms." Which would tell me you either went to lớn school in Đài Loan Trung Quốc or you"re one of those irritating gits who knows everything & always wins at Trivial Pursuit.

Thanks lớn Eidos however, the venerable Luo is about khổng lồ become, if not a household name, at least a little better known outside his native land. It is his historical novel about the fall of the Han dynasty in the 2nd century và the subsequent division of Trung Quốc inkhổng lồ three separate kingdoms that forms the basis of this real-time strategy game. To add to the authentithành phố the game itself is also a product of that vast và ancient nation, having been developed by Chinese team Object Software.

Deja Vu

The blurb that comes with the game tells you that you must take up the mantle of one of the three warlords of the time, Cao Cao, Lui Bei và Sun Quan. By using guile & cunning, or failing that, outright brutality, you must lead your third of Trung Quốc on a mission to bring the other two kingdoms under your wing and rebuild the shattered nation. Great, you"re thinking as you eagerly open the box while simultaneously phoning for a number 23, a 54, and some prawn crackers on the side. The evocative sầu intro sequence, depicting the three generals battling it out on the plains of China only seeks lớn get you even more in the mood for something a little different and then...

At this point you might be forgiven for checking that you haven"t put one of your old games in the CD drive sầu by mistake. For by now a rather alarming sense of ddjd vu will be creeping over you.Hang on, haven"t I played this somewhere before?

Indeed you have sầu, because Three Kingdoms: Fate of the Dragon bears an uncanny resemblance lớn Age Of Empires. We"re not just talking a passing graphical likeness here; great swathes of gameplay have also been liberally lifted from Ensemble"s masterpiece, especially the style of settlement building and resource management.

Saving Graces

Having made my point - Three Kingdoms is more of a tribute b& than it is the next Abba -I won"t dwell on it any further. Let"s turn instead khổng lồ some of the more original touches that Object Software has implemented. The first of these becomes apparent in the way you use your non-combatant population in the game. While it is necessary lớn build up a sizeable force of workers khổng lồ gather resources, build new structures and turn raw materials inlớn more useful ones, they can also be pressed into lớn active sầu service. By sending members of your population to a barracks you can train them up as sergeants and thereby begin to lớn build your military force. Where this dual-use scenario really comes in handy is during times of peace. Instead of having your army standing about idly & consuming all your hard-earned resources, you can put them baông xã to work as humble builders and gatherers. Then, when things start hotting up again, you can retrain them as soldiers at a fraction of the original time & cost.

Some thought has also gone into the art of war. Your soldiers march on their stomachs and need to lớn be kept fed & watered if you want them to lớn perform at their peak. While they are garrisoned in a friendly town they have sầu miễn phí access to lớn food and wine, as long as you have sầu some stockpiled, and will stay on top size. However, as soon as they start traipsing about in the wilderness they will begin khổng lồ decline. Keep them hungry và thirsty for long enough và they will degrade khổng lồ the point that they look about as dedicated và confident as Englvà going into another World Cup.

Fortunately you can offphối disaster with a bit of forward planning. By equipping your army wifh one or more supply wagons, you can mix up staging camps en route khổng lồ the site of your intended conquest và these help khổng lồ keep your force in good shape.

A Siege My Liege?

Provided you spare enough resources for some research you can also build a variety of siege equipment, và fortunately each đô thị in the game has a pre-made gate & walls to lớn avoid disappointment. After all, there"s nothing worse than dragging a siege ladder halfway across the country only khổng lồ find that the inconsiderate sods haven"t even bothered building a wall in the first place. However, whether you scale the walls or just tear down the gates, every combat situation tends khổng lồ deteriorate quickly inkhổng lồ a bit of an unstructured brawl.

Three Kingdoms employs an unusual two-maps system, which is more akin to lớn some older RPGs lượt thích the Ultima series than most RTS games. Each thành phố has its own detailed map, which is where most of the construction và resource-management activity goes on. There is also a "wilderness" bản đồ at a cruder scale in which cities are represented by buildings. You control units in exactly the same way in both maps, but just switch between the two as necessary. No doubt Object Software had sound reasons for arranging things this way rather than having the customary single-world map, but I have sầu lớn confess I found it rather annoying having to switch repeatedly between the wilderness maps & the various city maps in the game.

It"s great to lớn see some original sản phẩm coming out of Đài Loan Trung Quốc, và hopefully we"ll see a lot more of it in future. But I have khổng lồ be honest and say that Three Kingdoms didn"t quite vì chưng it for me. If you haven"t played any of the Age Of Empires series extensively & the Chinese scenario sounds like your bag then you will definitely get many hours of pleasure out of this hàng hóa, but sadly a classic it is not.
