More like Total War (if you are not familiar with the Romance of Three Kingdom) mixed with action rpg such as dynasty warrior. I would strongly suggest people to play it

It is a great little strategy/hack and slash game. I have so far spent about twenty hours in it. And only my used real money whenever I felt like it. They changed the iAP system for the better a week ago, so you can really play a lot of hours daily without even considering paying. This is freemium done right.

Good job. Great game. And surprisingly deep.

I guess the versatility more than depth really. Stats, love interest, lords to keep happy, citizen to keep happy, taxes, defence, attack and gear impressed in the beginning.

Though after having taken 36 of the 45 castles The "deep"-part is more of a repetitive grind. Still it had me clock in 20+hours and pay through the nose for another 5 before I gave up. So it did something right.

I only put a couple hours in, but here are my thoughts.

Graphics are ok. Sounds are good. And for a game with this much content, it should boil down to gameplay.

Castle/Army management is decent and pretty deep. Units need to be recruited, each castle should have their own army, the lords need to be given their salary to keep their loyalty high, buildings need to be built to enhance productivity or unlock armies.

Battles are pretty boring later on, but fun at first, but it's mostly due to the mayhem that you can see on your screen. Unfortunately, the controls in the battles is where the game failed for me.

Tapping to attack an enemy sounds easy, but it's pretty difficult to attack that certain enemy because of how the screen shifts about when your army moves you to the sides, or when they kill the enemy before you do. Wouldnt it be better if youre main character had an auto attack when an enemy is within range?

One thing that bothers me is the move speed. It changes with the type of weapon being equipped. Duals have the fastest movespeed, with the sword and shield second, and the greatsword is just slow. WHY? I understand how these will affect attack speed, but not movespeed. Maybe UNLESS you cant switch between equips on the fly. It only becomes annoying switching weapons because you want to use a certain weapon class. I'd prefer sheathing the weapon if this is what they are after. It may just be me, but this feature annoyed me much. And this honestly made combat pretty boring for me.

As expected, IAP can break the game as it gives you access to some uber rings, and helps you improve everything faster, build everything faster. So far, I only upgraded my army and let them fight battles for me. Sometimes i switch to a greatsword to do the spin slash ability, but that's it.

I'd play it for the management included in the game, but not for the battles. I can see that there is some fun to be had, but the battles didnt do it for me.

Check it out for free though. You might like it.

hmmm... has quite a few grammatical errors... but aside from that, it's not a bad game.... I'm enjoying it, and I never really enjoy games like this (that make you use gems to speed up leveling up, or building of resources... pushing you towards IAP) - but you win gems with each castle you take over, and taking them over isn't too difficult... yet. =oP

great game, it's free and playable even without IAPs.
display, atmosphere, and characters design looks similar to one of my favorite MMORPGs, SEAL online (gameplay is very different, though)
