Okay but still has bugs and...

Could use a few improvements. No total war iPad game lets you consistently command troops in to straight formations. In many spots, the formations will not go into the formation you command it to do despite the green dots lining up right. In the vandal campaign, every time you accept a marriage to daughter, Ludwiga, after you sack then later occupy Rome, the game instantly crashes. Only the general’s unit ever acts like an actual military unit, every other one flees to easily. Even the hardcore Roman legions have been known to inexplicably flee after fighting one peasant unit. So improvements would be welcome and/or mod capability. Other times, ONE unit can obliterate an entire army 20 tines it’s size. It feels a wee bit unbalanced. Some bugs make me wonder how well it was tested first. Otherwise it works pretty well. It feels and runs a bit smoother than the original. The fact it works and was ported to mobile devices at all is also amazing.

It’s great but some things just don’t make sense

It’s one of my favorite games and I spend way too much time on it. But I love playing as Rome, and the famous Roman infantry is so easily defeated by any barbarian heavy infantry. Even when experience levels are the same, the Roman comitatenses are easily destroyed by other groups of heavy infantry like the chosen axemen. And it doesn’t help that they are expensive. When you defeat a massive army in a stunning heroic victory, the enemy just presses an army multiplier and there’s another huge army coming at you again. I know there can’t be that much money to continually replace heavy troops, especially when I can barely retrain my troops that quickly. Also, when my generals have the ability to fight in the night, I never get the option to do so. Overall they’re just nitpicks and I do always choose the hardest difficulty for battles. Fantastic game and I recommend to pretty much everyone

By Far My Favorite Game

I originally had a lag problem with the game, but it seemed to go away and now I can play the larger units with little to no lag. No sure what happened, and I'm glad it did, and now I play on the Grand Campaign also problem free.
The only issue at the moment is that my tablet sometimes can't handle the awesomeness of 800 legionaries assaulting over a 1,000 sassind scum in a full blown siege, and I haven't learned my lesson to wait them out...
There's just some things you can't skip, especially Total War
(I'm not a sell out, yet)
