This is part two of my Alexander series. This deals with the problems Alexander faced following the death of Philip - which delayed his invasion of Persia. This campaign has more variety than the first campaign of mine, but of course the nature of the campaigns are dictated by historical accuracy (at least that is my attempt) Once again all the maps are accurate as are the scenarios. I'm looking forwards to getting started on the Alexander the Great #3 - which will deal with the invasion and conquest of Asia Minor. Thanks and please email me with comments.
This is a great campaign with a mix of scenario types and styles. The first is a puzzle map which will confuse you a bit unless you've seen it before. It isn't hard but there is a time limit which makes it a little bit more tense. The story that went with it was wonderful and the map was excellent with lots of cliffs and a nice bridge in a town. The second scenario was pretty easy if you can defend well. Wall in your main town and you should be set for the scenario. You must destroy the government centers of three different enemies. It wasn't hard because your economy was pretty safe but it was enjoyable nonetheless. I enjoyed the fact that you have to pay attention to what the Greeks do best to be efficient and I'm glad I didn't have to completely destroy anyone. The last scenario is the most difficult, featuring a fixed force battle where the goal is to completely wipe out the enemy town. You must plan your attacks carefully and wisely because the enemy has a variety of troops. One wrong move could spell the end. I really liked the wide diversity in these scenarios - they were unique and each was well-designed and fun. Great job!
