Great strategy game with lot of replay value

This is hands down my pick for the best strategy in the App Store. For those who enjoy total war style games this game offers more than anything you will find on the App Store. Art is very beautiful and the there are variety of units to keep the strategy part interesting.

If I had anything to complain about for the sake of constructive criticism, The upgrades for the decrees can be a bit slow. And I wish there were more officers overall. Also it would be great to have the officers actually participate in the battle not just as stat boost.

I thought the scenarios were interesting but no different really from any other modes. I wish scenarios were a little bit more story driven. That would make the game even more replayable.

Best Grand Strategy On The App Store, Will Be Missed

While there is a certain playstyle the game loves, it still gives you an huge array of ways to play your way. There are different ways to interact with most everything, and you can't become dependent on one factor alone to win, unless you're willing to accept a near endless chaotic campaign. Deep, fun, kind feeling as you interact with various organizations, endless character and the best art style and strategy, this game is the best on the App Store.

Still, its long and not worth a buy if you plan to update, definitely amazing. As close to beyond perfect as any GS on here.

Outstanding and better than anything else here

I have played the long campaign to completion, and I can honestly say that this game is superior to any strategy game I have played from the App Store. I am a fan of strategy games, especially the total war series and this game really delivered.

I do think it lacks some user-friendliness when it comes to managing your empire. You really do have to visit each province and check for free troops and construction progress. It becomes a bit of a grind as your empire expands.

Overall though, this is probably the best strategy game you can get for iPhone.
