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.

What I've done and what I've received


I literally Bought the iPad just to play this game (and just make it my game thing), I'm not really disappointed, if this is your first time playing a total war game, you will love this game, it is by far one of the best strategy/war games in the store, still, if you played the CPU version you will realize the differences, these differences are the change in scale of battles, to fit with the ipads mobility, you still get most of total wars immersion but with a small quality drop, but with right marketing I know total war is something that could take over a large part of the gaming community, I am very happy the creators are bringing these games to mobile devices , and hope the consoles are next, I really believe total war games could be a triple A thing, please keep expanding, one day Everyone could be talking about these games like they do skyrim and GTA, you better hurry before mount and blade is also a good game expanding its reaches
