History’s greatest military adventures all begin on iPad.
Alexander is the second epic expansion for Creative Assembly’s classic strategy game ROME: Total War.
A century before the campaigns of ROME: Total War, Alexander ascends the Macedonian throne and embarks upon an audacious campaign to conquer the all-powerful Persian Empire.
Lead your armies to unify the Greek city states, and then march across Central Asia, routing the Persian Empire to establish your legend as Alexander the Great, the most remarkable general of classical civilisation.

Ratings and Reviews
It’s a nice port of a pc game but...
It maybe a design intention to have no access to India but why are the Persians there? It undermines what they may have tried to do or why have a settlement there at all? The units in the game are comically color coded and lack the realism and discipline of the historical armies. You can only play as Alexander’s faction which does remove sone of the variety and fun that the option to play a variety of factions bring. Still not a bad game but then then lack of versatility does lower the replay value quite a bit. The intro and ending sequences were fun and educational that could have used a bit more of a sense of story or role playing during the mid of the game. Given the type of one shot one side game it is, more story and rp like elements would have helped it greatly. While the merc options were one of the highlights, some of the units were too generic or appearing in in places that made less sense.
It’s weird seeing a game I loved so much back when on the PC in the App Store. I have Alexander and Barbarian invasion and they’re exactly what I remembered, large scale strategic combat at its finest. I must say though, if you’re an imperial campaign type, go for Rome or Barbarian. Absolutely love the games, what a perfect iPad app to have for long amounts of time like an airplane. 5 stars, you guys earned it. I must add one thing too, it would be nice if I could complete the set with Rome (have Barbarian Invasion and Alexander) at a discounted rate, as $17 is a lot to spend on 3 games when you don’t know if the game mechanics will translate well to an iphone or iPad and like myself, I imagine people want to test the waters so to speak before investing in the 3 game pack.
5 stars, fantastic, love the games and would love to see more from the total war set on the App Store.

I love Total War Games!
I really love Total War games and I've been so excited that first Rome and now Alexander are available on iOS. However this one, Alexander, is really buggy. I don't remember Rome iOS being as buggy as this play through of Alexander was for me. Hopefully they keep ironing out the bugs.
Edit: I just replayed the campaign after the last update and many of the bugs have been fixed. I still saw a few bugs, such as one involving being unable to deselect a city on the world map that happened on both play throughs occasionally, however performance has really improved. I'll raise my review from 3 to 4 stars.
