Total War: Three Kingdoms - The Furious Wild
Top Critic Average
With exotic locales and new ideas, The Furious Wild DLC reminds us why we fell in love with Total War: Three Kingdoms in the first place.
Total War: Three Kingdoms - The Furious Wild lets you run amok with the Nanman led by Meng Huo and others. The downside is that the campaign can turn into a slog and then a long waiting game. Replayability also suffers due to all leaders starting from the same region and having similar objectives and progression paths. Still, the unique perks, mechanics, and units offer refreshing dynamics in tactical battles.
The Furious Wild provides even more reason to return to Three Kingdoms and to lose yourself once again for a score of hours engaging in some of the most rewarding gameplay modern strategy games have to offer.
A creative expansion that adds enjoyable new mechanics and units, plus a unique two-stage campaign, without feeling disjointed from the core game.
The DLC is an interesting side-expansion of game mechanics, giving you an alternative experience if you’re tired of all the “civilised” Chinese people fighting each other and would like some “barbarians” thrown into the mix. With a choice of starting dates in both 900 and 904, Three Kingdoms: The Furious Wild offers a worthy shot – and as long as you really like nature and tigers, you’re probably not going to be disappointed.
As an expansion for Total War: Three Kingdoms, The Furious Wild is a no brainer to pick up. Adding a ton of content and tens of hours of new gameplay for a mere snip, this DLC is definitely worth the asking price. The Nanman campaign is one that has plenty of drama attached with a host of faction specific missions and events and then best of all, once it is completed it is just the prologue of the adventure to come, with the rest of China to capture and a whole host of 'outsiders' to convert or conquer in the name of the Nanman. Visually impressive and with a lot of creative ideas in the mechanics used to keep the factions interesting -The Furious Wild is an excellent addition to the game.
A much-needed refresher to its tactical layer along with unique progression systems makes Furious Wild a good expansion for Three Kingdoms veterans. On the other hand, the new faction early game can be tedious and often disconnected from the main plot of the game.
