Total War: Three Kingdoms graphics issues

Although the game received positive reviews from specialized gaming publications, many gamers took it to the forums to express their concerns about the bad graphics.

Total War: Three Kingdoms benefits from beautiful in-game graphics but it seems that the unit models look stiff, robotic and out of proportion.

Game physics do not seem to be refined, something you would not expect from a game of this type.

The stiffness of the models’ shoulder pads seem to be a common cause of complain among gamers.

This game looks worse than Shogun 2 even thought it has better graphics than Shogun 2. Why do the unit models look like they got a stick up their♥♥♥♥♥♥ They look stiff, robotic and weirdly proportioned. […] How can I immerse myself in this game when it looks like this mess? Not gonna buy this game anymore. inb4 nobody cares

Apparently, the armor models in Total War: Three Kingdoms look like nothing you’ve ever seen in another game. For some, this could be good news.

However, it seems that most people don’t actually like the current models.

Online critics don’t expect much improvement to come before the release date, as time is too short. The devs don’t have enough time to properly implement the changes — if they were to accept users’ suggestions.

Not meeting gamers’ expectations could have a very bad impact on sales. Many potential players already confirmed they were put off by the current game graphics and battle mechanics.
