Alexander is a real-time strategy game created by GSC Game World (creators of Cossacks: European Wars and Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars) and published by Ubisoft, based on the 2004 film of the same name. Its gameplay is akin to that of Cossacks, with elements of the Age of Empires series and Age of Mythology visible.

When the game was released, it was praised for features such as "large battles give you a realistic feel of warfare". However the game was criticized for poor pathfinding, weak AI and poor voice acting. All this seems to indicate that the game was rushed to meet a deadline that would coincide with the movie's release, which is unfortunate because the developer, GSC Game World, has produced good strategy titles in the past." Like the movie it was based on, opinions on the game vary.
