2. Review
===================

Romance of the Three Kingdoms 3: Dragon of Destiny is the third installment in 
the strategy games made by KOEI. The game is based on the three kingdoms period 
in China (189-280). Romance of the three Kingdoms were also the basis for the 
popular Playstation series Dynasty Warrior. However, unlike Dynasty Warrior, 
this game is more strategical. 

While this game might be pale to comparison with Romance of the three 
Kingdoms 4: Wall of Fire. Nevertheless if you compare it with the second game, 
you could notice huge improvement that have been made in this game. 

Gameplay 
With hundreds of officer that existed historically, this game will be entertaining, 
especially to ROTK fans. There were 46 cities in the game based on real cities on 
the real life three kingdoms period, and a lot of battlefield in which the war will 
took place. 

It is also a great feature, that besides controlling military aspect of your 
country, you could control the economical and social aspect as well. For example, 
you need to garner the popular support of the townsfolk so that you will get much 
revenue and to prevent the town folks from rebelling. 

There were 6 scenario in total that you could choose. Each with its unique 
challenge that will be appealing for the player. For example, there is a 
scenario that starts out with a lot of ruler with small countries, but there are 
other scenarios that contain only a few rulers. The Ruler you choose will affect 
the difficulty of the game. 

In this game, you will also be able to create your own officer and ruler. This 
feature is another plus point for the game. 

Graphic 
The Graphic is okay for an SNES game. More significant character such as ruler 
and famous officer has their own unique picture. The battlefield was done quite 
okay as well. With castle and houses were shown in a quite captivating manners. 

Even though the graphic of this game is yet to match the fourth game, definitely 
it is a huge improvement compared to its predecessor. 

Music 
In my opinion, the music is able to bring out the atmosphere of the game. 
However, after playing for sometime, you might find the music to be repetitive. 
It would be better if the creator of the game put on a more variety of music 
implemented in it. 

Replay Value 
This game has a high replay value, considering the fact that two games you play 
will never be completely similar. With a variety of rulers to choose from, this game 
could keep you playing for a long time. 



=====================
3. General Strategy
=====================

There are 2 key areas to be taken care of at the beginning of the game. They are your
cities defense as well as your popular support. Try to distribute food to your people to 
raise their popular support. Popular support is quite vital in the game, as higher popular
support will reult in a higher tax return. IF your popular support is in red, there is a
risk that they might rebel. for your cities defense, there is no guidelines cast in stone 
over how many soldiers you should have. You need to pay attention to the enemies cities
surrounding you. Try to have more soldiers than them to avoid being attacked. Cities
with no adjacent enemies cities could be left untouched first, or you might want to move 
the soldiers in these cities to a more important one.

Next would be your cities domestic development. They consist of Flood Control, Land, 
Harvest, and Economy. Out of this, try to develop economy using your civil officers. With
a higher economy rating, you will get more gold at the beginning of the year.

5. Tips and Hints
==================

Super Advisors
Advisors with intelligence rating of 100 or more will always give the right advice. Unfortunately,
in the game Zhuge Liang is the only one with an original intelligence rating of 100. However, you
could raise your advisors intelligence rating using items such as War Manual of Sun Tzu.
