  • Summary: Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is wargaming with a classic style.

Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his father?s legacy at the battle ofTin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is wargaming with a classic style. Easy to learn but difficult to master, it places you in the role of Alexander the Great during his conquest of the known world. Guide Alexander through his grand campaign from inheriting his father?s legacy at the battle of Thebes to his conquest of Darius III and the Persian Empire through his last great battle at the Hydaspes, in the heart of Asia against the Indian army of King Porus. Designed to evoke the beauty of museum-quality miniatures on a professional tabletop battlefield, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great uses an innovative multi-phase turn-based system. As you play, the campaign unfolds before you with cinematic cut-scenes and three dimensional panoramas of the battlefields. Each battle is based on the historical terrain and troop placements, but the campaign allows you to make decisions in between battles on which units to reinforce, whether to recruit new units or replace commanders and how many of your resources to focus on training.

  1. A treasure of a wargame. It aptly portrays his fight to conquer the world, and it works hard to transport you to the scene of its battles. [Feb 2005, p.75]
  2. Another great addition to the turn-based strategy line-up from Matrix Games and comes highly recommended by us here at PC Gameworld, provided that you enjoy the genre in the first place. The period in which the game is set is both interesting and action-packed.
  3. This game is smooth and polished enough to feel like it has years of work behind it. Design issues aside, Tin Soldiers: Alexander the Great is staying on this psuedo-grognard's hard drive for a while to come.
  4. It distinguishes itself through its presentation, gameplay system, and a subject matter that's neglected in computer war games. [Apr 2005, p.90]
  5. Claustrophobically restricted by some uninspired level design, and all too often your soldiers are boxed in by clumsy dead ends, making more complex troop manoeuvres virtually impossible. [March 2005, p.109]
