Still great RTW experience, but... it isn't the best addition and thats why thumb down. It's game for once. You can lead only Macedon and it would be okey, if campaign had been changed. Unfortunately, you play as in normal RTW, without any alteration beside lacks of diplomats. Even in heart of Persian Empire you can still train macedonian troops and you don't need mercanaries. It lacks some narrative, special events or cutscenes, there is no intro even. Alexander is central figure of game, you lost when he died, but this is not exploited. Beside, even if start is hard, when you defeat some Persian armies, you are unstoppable. From the other hand, you can end campaign quickly. And steam version isn't the best technically.
