Chaos of the Three Kingdoms is a crowd fan fighting game that is similar to the Dynasty Warriors/ Samurai Warriors series created by Koei. It is also similar to the Sengoku Basara game series created by Capcom.
There are 34 playable characters to choose from one of the four army factions of Shu, Wei, Wu or Neutral. The objective of the game is to fight enemies in a number of stages that represent the battles that take place during the Three Kingdoms era and the Later Han era in Ancient China. Each character has one of the seven elements assigned them which are Fire, Ice, Lightning, Earth, Wind, Light, and Darkness that allows the character perform devastating special attacks against enemy soldiers based on the element that he/she is using.
Another feature that has been added to the game is the Valor Attack. The Valor Attack is a super finisher move that causes heavy elemental damage to all enemies on screen. However, the Valor Attack can only be performed if the valor gauge is completely filled up or when the character's health on red and the valor gauge will fill up slowly.
Every time the player performs 1000 hits in a combo, he/she will trigger Rampage Frenzy. When this occurs, the player will be rewarded with an item box that contains a rare weapon, gold, even a rare item and also increases the speed and attack power of a character when they are glowing an azure blue color, putting them in a invunerable state called the Valor Edge Drive which makes the character more powerful against enemy troops when activated. Activating Valor Edge Drive at higher levels makes the player stay in this state longer.
A new mode. Seperated from Unification Mode of Chaos of the Three Kingdoms, players play through 6 or 8 stages that follows the story of one of the 34 characters. The players can also obtain personal items or rare weapons belonging to the characters only on the sixth stage of story mode if certain conditions are met.
Another mode added to the game, Unification Mode comes with more features but the goal is to conquer the entire land of Ancient China. But because of rather than take over every city in the provinces of China, you can earn new items and weapons by capturing new territories. Also, the more cities that a CPU controlled faction captures, the more items that faction holds will level up.
Free Battle ModeEdit
Free Battle freely lets the players play in any stage that is in Story Mode or Unification Mode as any character.
Another game mode that has the player's character fight CPU controlled opponents in 200 rounds while watching your health bar, defeating opponents in 5 rounds will give the player food to replenish your health or obtain items. However, the game will end if the player's health reaches zero. The player has the option of saving their progress after clearing 5 rounds and continue the game or quit survival mode.
This mode allows player to freely create their own original male/female characters by choosing the clothes, face types, hair styles, or height and weight types, and voice types for that male/female character and the breast sizes are exclusive for edit mode if the character is female. Players also can create combinations of any valor attack to add to the original character's weapon. Edit Characters are available to use in Unification Mode, Free Battle Mode, and Survival Mode.
