How are you suppose to win the Battle of Carrhae on VH. If you charge the cavalry archers, they run away. The Cataphracts also come very fast.

Its a tough one, I only did it once. Don't worry about trying to kill the horse archers early, just use keep chasing them off and out of range of your troops. Make your troops into a line, they will have to take care of the cataphracts. Try and use your units in pairs. Have one take the brunt of the charge, and attack them from the side with the other. Have your general at the side ready to attack the enemy general if you get the chance.
