For those who haven’t played it, Total War puts players in the role of one of the greatest commanders of all time, Alexander the Great, replaying his mighty conquests and battles from 336 to 323 BC, starting with his ascension to the Macedonian throne.

Alexander introduces 50 new units—including the Persian Immortal Infantry, Indian War Elephants, and Macedonian Companion Cavalry—and the playable armies of Macedon, Persia, India, and Dahae. In addi- tion to the campaign, you can take on the AI in cus- tom battles or try your luck against real opponents via LAN multiplayer. One of the best aspects of Alexander is its rapid pace—after all, you’ll need to match Alexander’s speed and complete your sin- gle-player conquest in 100 turns—so strategy fans who prefer to play on Mac (and own Rome: Total War—Gold Edition) should find their hands full.
