Summary: Praetorians is definitely, to me, the greatest strategy game of all times, because it's not only the first game I have ever played since i was 10 years old but also stands out in contrast to other mainstream popular strategy games like Age Of Empires thanks to the complete absence of resources ( gold, food, wood,...).
Summary: I loved this game. .. i purchased it new and am still playing it BUT it fails to launch now.. contacted securom "not our problem" contacted support and they walked me thru many tests.. concluded "not our problem" and would warrantee it for 20.00 usd DAMN i still want to play this after 3 years now i will have to purchase it again JUST to see if it will play .. and i wont get my money back if it doesn't Damn ..
