Editors' Notes

If you’re going to wage Total War, you better have a total strategy. Feral’s faithful port takes us right back to the amazingly complex battles of Rome. We can’t help but make alliances, purposely break them, then chase down our newfound enemies. It’s all fun and games, right? That is, until they get the upper hand…

Battlefield Formations

I previously wrote a poor review for this game for one reason. I though I couldn’t control troop formations on the battle field. The developers have showed me how to do it (very easy using a to fingered tap and hold). So now I am correcting my previous review and giving the game 5 stars. Highly recommend. Awesome game!

I’ve loved this game for so many years in its PC form. It’s the best Total War ever created in my opinion. It’s amazing how they have managed to miniaturize the game for iPhone. But there is one serious compromise they have had to make. You can’t determine the formation of your troops on the battlefield. This makes battles seriously difficult to fight. You can’t determine how wide your unit formations are, or how deep. You can’t select multiple units and stretch them across the battlefield in your desired formation. A serious flaw that makes game play difficult, stupid, and boring. I hope they fix this flaw in future versions. If they do, the game will get 5 stars.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your purchase of ROME: Total War.

Please see the following link for a guide on changing a unit's formation or depth in the 'Groups and Formations' section:

You will need to hold your fingers down for a couple of seconds until the purple circles appear under the desired unit, you can then alter that unit's formation.

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you require further assistance via

Timeless classic

Can’t get enough of this game! I have played through the campaign several times with different factions and there is always something new to learn and to do differently. The game is so in depth, and the level of strategy that goes into the ever changing campaign means it never gets tedious.

Do you play full offensive early? Do you play it safe and stockpile your money? Do you block your Roman allies? Maybe befriend the underdog factions to defeat your direct enemies, or sail to the other side of the map for a sneaky takeover? The tactics are endless and always evolving, and the more experienced with the game you get the more daring you can be with how you play.

The only flaw I can find is that the controls during the battles are a little clunky, and it can be a bit hard to control large armies but given some time and practice this isn’t too much of an issue.
