It feels like it keeps getting better, so that's good. An option to auto-recruit max troops is cool. The battle animations are, I think, better. And wow, several BGM sets! That's...weird, but okay, interesting.
One bad thing that seriously stands out to me are the field and mountain tiles outside of the fort. They just plain look absolutely terrible to me, or maybe it's not the graphics but that they don't seem to fit with the game at all. It's like they're way too big or zoomed in and smoothed out as if some kind of emulator filter was being used.
