Does anyone have this game? As far as I know, it's already out in Japanese. Also, I saw a vid of a guy fighting Lu Bu and it seems everything seemed to revolve around him. Was that Zhao Yun??

You create your own character, choose a time period (currently, only the Anti-Dong Zhuo coalition period is available) and choose a lord (who is a unique NPC - so you can't serve someone like Yuan Shu or Gongsun Zan, but you can serve Dong Zhuo, Yuan Shao, Cao Cao, Liu Bei, and Sun Jian).

I currently have the game and play it every now and then. You can play up to a certain rank for free (without doing sidequests) using the Military Training function, which is basically 4v4 skirmishes. The most I've ever had as far as players go is 2v2 (the game fills up any empty spots with other characters). What you do is pick a kingdom to play against, and then people can join that game from either your kingdom or the other kingdom. It's really neat.

In battle, the victory conditions are either taking all of the enemy bases or killing more soldiers than the enemy.

You can customize your character's face and such, but not his outfit (your outfit depends entirely on what items you equip).

Oh, and you can make a certain officer your commanding officer, too. Only a few officers are in the scenario that's available right now:

Sun Jian:
Sun Jian
Huang Gai
Sun Shang Xiang
Zhou Yu
Sun Ce

Liu Bei:
Liu Bei
Guan Yu
Zhang Fei

Cao Cao:
Cao Cao
Xiahou Dun
Xiahou Yuan
Dian Wei
Xu Zhu

Yuan Shao (currently eliminated):
Yuan Shao
Zhang He
Zhen Ji

Dong Zhuo:
Dong Zhuo
Lu Bu
Diao Chan
Zhang Liao

Here's a buncha generally pointless crap on it.

I should probably try that download thing again, without McAfee it may actually give me a good rating....though I dunno if I'd actually play the game if it were in English.

How do you use the pawn shop? I brought Zhao Yun Spear. How do I use it? Why is it red? it lags like hell. How do I get clothes?

That sounds like a good game, too bad it's not out in English

It's okay. Not that great. A friend has it but I didn't purchase the thing myself. Musou Orochi might be a better buy, though I really thought that particular game was only okay and didn't buy it myself (perhaps a second one of that might be much better).

I feel the opposite way. The game is fun and exciting for me, and plus, it's still in an early stage with only one server and one scenario. Soon, they'll be adding new servers, new scenarios, and new battles.

It's pretty cheap. $40 gets you a crapload of battles (in the hundreds), and that's the largest amount you buy them in.
