GeorgeV.Dec 7, 2005Ok, so I am Greek and I thought this would be a good game. The graphics are good, and the soldiers look very nice but there are a lot of problems with this game. 1. Even thow you can play with thousands of units, the pixel rate really starts freezing when there are big battle scenes. 2. The controls don't always work! For example, certain units will not obey commands, not get into proper fomrations or will just start wondering off...where the hell are you going? 3. It is nice to make a huge army of many rows, and thousands of units, but when it comes to the battle, they just become one huge blob and they don't follow orders anymore! You can't even separate them, they won't retreat if you order them to. 4. Alexander was one of the greatest king's and conquerers in histoy. He was always outnumbered and always victorius (96 battles, non lost!) but in the game there is no strategies. All you have to do is send your men running into the enemy and you win. Over all, it was a good idea and consept but poorly made.Not only did the movie stink, but the game is based on it also! They made it to sloppy and destroyed the image of the greatest general the world has ever seen.… Full Review »

PoulK.Jan 10, 2005In spite of the lack of hotkeys the game are really enjoyable as a online game.
