Game Description:The Great Battles of Alexander is a multi-player strategy game, with an interface that is designed to be as simple as possible. Mouse controlled with a taskbar consisting of just 15 buttons, simplicity soon proves to be a great asset. Like chess, the strategy is the game not a jumble of incomprehensible rules. Similarly, you have a variety of different troop statuses from mercenary slingers to your own hoplites, and each type has it's own characteristics, different weapons, armour and uses.
I-magic has created a totally cerebral game which is very absorbing. You can spend days obsessing over one battle, before settling for one that will lead to victory, the challenge implicit in the game means that this game is incredibly addictive to anyone who has even a passing interest in strategy games.
