  • Excerpt: “On my signal, unleash Hell.” – Maximus, Gladiator Unleash hell, indeed. Was there ever a more dominant military force than the ancient Roman Empire? Granted, they didn’t have the military might that the U.S. currently possesses, but consider the conditions they were under.

  • Excerpt: Pyro Studios and Eidos, the companies responsible for bring us the Commandos series, brings us its latest endeavor, Praetorians. I think they’ve held up to their own standards with this game. Praetorians is little bit different from most RTS games on the market today.

Praetorians is an excellent choice for real-time strategy fans looking for a stiff and satisfying challenge.

  • Summary: Some critics would say that real-time strategy games are formulaic; in most of these games, you gather resources, build up a base, create an army of military units as quickly as possible, and pummel your opponents before they can do the same to you.
  • Pros: N/A

Praetorians

ActionTrip

  • Conclusion: After considering all the pros and cons of Praetorians, I'm almost certain that fans of strategy combat shouldn't dare to miss it. Not unless they don't like intelligent and intense strategy gameplay, which is really a contradiction in terms.
  • Pros: A very unique and fun approach to strategy gaming. Deep and intelligent strategy combat. Missions are excellently designed. Excellent music and sound effects;
  • Cons: Complete lack of a storyline, or heroes to draw the player more into the game. The developers could've worked more on the RPG aspect of the gameplay, as well as the game's reward factor. Unit animation seems a bit stiff. They (units) also could've used a bit more polys.

Praetorians Review

Eurogamer
25 March 2003
  • Conclusion: Sadly, that might be the downfall of the game. More hardcore strategy gamers might simply find that this whets their appetite for the forthcoming Roman treatment of the Total War series, while those weaned on StarCraft and Command & Conquer may find the whole affair a bit too plodding and cerebral.

  • Excerpt: Der er gået mode i real time strategispil, der ikke anvender den klassiske opbygning af baser og indsamling af ressourcer. De spil, der viger væk fra den vante formel for RTS spil, er ofte baseret på historiske krige og Praetorians er ikke nogen undtagelse.
