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.

Interesting. This game definitely calls for a bigger screen.

Still waiting for iPhone plus version if it ever comes. I played this a lot as a kid and would love to play it in my pocket.

Same, looking forward to playing this when I get home

From memory of the first time they came round the three games worked very well independently because you had to have different strategies for each game, the original Rome:Total war was kind of neutral, you would slowly build up and expand - Barbarians added the horde aspect which means you still had to have a slow build up but had to be ready for the sh*t to hit the fan when the hordes turned up. Alexander more or less removes any slow build up and because of the timers involved you almost have to go on the rampage immediately - looking forward to it
