Game description: Love and war go hand in hand in Kessen II. The warrior Liu Bei wages war against the leader of the Wei Kingdom, Cao Cao, in an attempt to rescue a woman named Diao Chan. As Liu, you can employ devastating elemental attacks, including tornadoes, lightning strikes, and meteor showers. Command your squad as they besiege castle walls, fight aboard moving ships, and ride onto the battlefield atop horses or elephants. With each battle, you'll soon realize that saving China from Cao Cao's tyranny is just as important as rescuing your lost love.
Assume the role of historical Chinese general Liu Bei of the Shu kingdom whose ultimate goal is the destruction of the Cao Cao, the leader of the Wei kindgom in order to rescue his lost love and claim his opponenet's land. New "Agen Technology" allows for 500 soldiers on-screen at a given time.

1.2.2 GSdx SPU2X SDL FX4300 really struggles when there are plenty of soldiers on the field; used Nvidia closed-source drivers; certain scenes will show a black screen unless you toggle to software mode for those particular scenes; certain magic attacks will have minor graphical errors; otherwise with a powerful cpu this game is quite playable DaTankAC
