Fun to play, but there are some issues.
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.
One of my favorite games of all time!
This is just about a perfect port of one the greatest games. Feral Interactive knocked it out of the park. In this day in age when in-app, micro purchases are all the rage, this is a breath of fresh air. A fully intact, classic PC game that I can play on my iPad with no discernible downgrades is amazing, and it actually gives me hope for iPad gaming.
The touch screen controls are almost perfectly translated and intuitive. Every now and then I will accidentally command the wrong action because of issues highlighting and unhighlighting units on the fly, but apart from that everything is just about perfect!
Battle Map speed settings
If you are thinking of buying this game - do it. It's a great port of an incredible game/series.
Latest update: added a slow mo speed to the battle maps but also sped up normal gameplay. Much preferred the old "normal" game speed.
Update: Feral reached out and noted game speeds weren't touched but there was definitely a shift for my specific device on the last update. It's still a great game so keeping those 5 stars up there.
