As a player of Medieval II: Total War , I'm very fond of it's fancy battle scene , at the same time , I feel confused when I play this wonderful game because of cultural differences . You can find lots of games about Chinese Three Kingdoms in the internet , but I have to say , from my point of view , the connotation of the Chinese culture has been changed beyond recognition .
