Blue Lotus: Total War
You should probably pay more attention to the mod community, you know. Especially when they’re putting out games of this quality. Blue Lotus is a mod for Rome: Total War – you take charge of the Chinese empire, looking to repel an invasion of demons, imps, and all things wicked. It’s based on authentic mythology, but hey, they said that about giant enemy crabs, too. If anyone from Creative Assembly is reading this – you should probably hire these guys.
The latest version suffers from occasional crashes, so if you are going to play, make sure you save. And you’ll need the latest Rome patch. Now go! Play!
