Editors’ Notes

If you’re going to wage Total War, you better have a total strategy. Feral’s faithful port takes us right back to the amazingly complex battles of Rome. We can’t help but make alliances, purposely break them, then chase down our newfound enemies. It’s all fun and games, right? That is, until they get the upper hand…

Good but not perfect


First and MOST IMPORTANT is this: Where are the compatible mods? Mods and modding are among the best and most important parts of the total war series (Which even Creative Assembly seems to forget sometimes.). It appears to be absent from this version so far though unfortunately. Secondly, the controls are quirky, as in they do not always seem very quick, accurate, or reliable. There are also a few inexplicable annoying bugs that occasionally crash the game or freeze the screen. In RomeTW, Numantia can’t produce ships with a port. In Alexander, India is occupied by Persia but can’t be reached.
On the good side, it does look like a faithful port to mobile devices. It is quite thrilling and very satisfying to see those armies marching on you portable devices instead iPod being tied strictly to larger computers. It’s a testament to how far mobile devices have come when you see a program like this that could even make a good computer lag on occasion rarely run into that issue. Updates through app stores are more streamlined and reliable. Start up is smooth and expedient. Aside from the occasional crashes, the game is actually overall a bit more stable.

Fun to play, but there are some issues.

Larry in Mo.

I truly enjoyed this game for years on my PC. Was delighted to see it come to IPAD. Still fun to play, but this isn't as smooth as the PC version. Moving units is not as fast or precise as one can do with a mouse pointer on a PC. The touch screen movement is often confusing and does not respond as quickly. One time a unit will do exactly as you directed and the next time you do the same thing, it does something very different. There are no instructions that answer these questions. A video by the distributor only gives you the basics movement...Also, as I was warned, one eventually reached a point where the game will not go on to the next turn and shuts-down your IPAD. Been fighting this for two days and can't go any further in the game.....I wish this game worked as well as the PC version did. The "old" graphics are still the equal of anything out there and the huge battle scenes can't be beat. As a major fan of ancient history, I love this game. Just wish it worked like the original.
