  • Excerpt: Lloyd Sabin offers his thoughts on the latest installation to the long-standing Total War series, Rome Total War: Alexander. Is conquering the ancient world with 3D graphics really as much fun as it sounds? Lloyd puts this highly anticipated real time strategy/turn-based blend to the test to find out.

  • Excerpt: I’ve played the Total War series since its inception six years ago and loved every minute of it. Shogun: Total War was a revelation when I first played it and the Mongolian Invasion expansion improved on an already great formula. Medieval: Total War and its Viking Invasion expansion are both still on my hard drive and are two of my favorite titles of all time.

  • Summary: Alexander the Great supposedly once said, "There is nothing impossible to him who would try." Well, he never played his namesake expansion pack for Rome: Total War. This latest, download-only addition to The Creative Assembly's long-running series of historic epics is so spectacularly difficult that even the legendary Macedonian conqueror would have a rough go of subduing those pesky Persians.
  • Pros: Grueling campaign lets you know why Alexander is called "the Great", including a turn limit adds a great sense of urgency to every campaign battle, strong mix of new nations and units, new multiplayer options jazz up online combat with two-on-one and three-on-one games
  • Cons: Campaign is about conquest-in-a-hurry, which means more emphasis on battles and less on turn-based strategy like diplomacy, building, or consolidation, Extreme challenge is refreshing, but could be off-putting for beginners and serious historical buffs

  • Excerpt: Nachdem ihr das alte Rom zu neuen Siegen geführt habt, steigt in Creative Assemblys aktuellem Add-on zur bekannten Strategie-Reihe 'Total War' der Puls aller Altgriechen-Fans. Mit 'Alexander' könnt ihr nämlich dem wohl bekanntesten Feldherrn aller Zeiten unter die Arme greifen.
  • Pros: äußerst gute Grafik-Engine, fordernde Kampagne, niedriger Preis, umfangreiche Möglichkeiten im Spiel
  • Cons: sehr schwer, historisch teilweise nicht korrekt, nur per Download oder in Collector’s Box mit allen anderen Teilen erhältlich

PC GURU
16 December 2006
  • Excerpt: A Creative Assembly ’87 óta ténykedik a játékiparban, a korai időkben a sportjátékok területén számítottak nagyágyúnak (az ő nevükhöz fűződik például az első FIFA), aztán a Shogun 2000-ben mindent megváltoztatott és a stratégák kedvencévé tette a csapatot. Azóta a Total War sorozaton dolgoznak (immár egy éve a Sega tulajdonában).
  • Pros: +sok új egység, +új területek, +Total War
  • Cons: -nagyon nehéz, -időlimit

  • Excerpt: Похоже, SEGA решила выжать из франчайза Rome: Total War все соки, до последней капли. Безжалостно играя на чувствах фанатов, которые с нетерпением ждут Medieval 2: Total War (выйдет 14 ноября, если ничего не изменится), меркантильное издательство заставило The Creative Assembly отойти от старого принципа выпускать одну игру и один действительно качественный аддон к ней.

  • Conclusion: Das Addon Alexander richtet sich vor allem an die Experten, die schon alle Kniffe kennen und nach neuen Möglichkeiten dürsten, sich zu beweisen. Alexander bietet diese Möglichkeit, allein mangelt es an spielerischen Neuerungen, die darüber hinausgehen, dass man sich beim Erobern nicht zu viel Zeit lassen darf. Nichtsdestotrotz ist das, was geboten wird, immer noch von hoher Qualität, so dass man mit dem Kauf eigentlich nichts falsch machen kann.
