Few companies know the strategy genre like Koei, and its Romance of the Three Kingdoms series has endured for decades. The second game appeared on the Genesis, and while it’s a bit rough in the interface, there’s some fun to be had if you’re a fan of political intrigue and nation-building.

Koei’s long-running strategy series made a singular appearance on the 32X in Japan, and it was never released outside of that country. Currently it’s considered one of the rarest games in that library, but is it worth playing? Very much so, despite a daunting language barrier.
Historical strategy titles aren’t normally high on gamers’ “to do” lists, and that’s a shame. There are some brilliant games out there, and Koei’s seminal series is probably the most famous of them all. Released on just about every console ever made, its Genesis entries come highly recommended.
