Obviously the novel is more epic and romanticized. Which moments stand out to you guys? I want to compile a list of great moments.

Some that come to mind for me are

Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, Liu Bei vs Lu Bu

Zhao Yun yolo charge to save Liu Bei's kid

Zhang Fei Chang Ban shout

Yea... I'm very shu biased. Would like to get to know other moments.

For me, it's most probably Xiahou Dun's rage when he lost his eye. Splitting people's skull like a boss. :lol:

Oh, and the novel IS Shu-biased. So basically most of the epic events are Shu's exploits.

For me, the most impressive part of the novel was it's poetry. I especially enjoied opening verses, verse about the mist on Yangtze river before the Chi Bi, verses abot Zhuge Liang death, and especially ending verses.

Thanks for the signature, A?i Dahāka!

thanks for the contributions. I didn't even think of Xiahou Dun's eye scene. Koei keeps trying to having him take on Guan Yu or Zhao Yun, I forgot about his famous moment.

Also great quote! Are there others?

I think Zhuge Liang vs. the Wu scholars was great enough to get a mention.

Mi Heng. Just Mi Heng.

Guan Yu breaking through the five checkpoints.

Gan Ning charging into Cao Cao's camp.

Xaihou Dun's eye scene.

The smack talk between Sun Ce's army and their opponents.

There's ton's more but that's just off the top of my head.
