Dated, but still has its appeal!

  • Excerpt: After watching the great movie 300, for a short amount of time I set about obsessively purchasing every game / movie to do with ancient civilizations. Sad, yes... but I got some great games that I never would have played otherwise. Praetorians was released something like 5 years ago, and it's a 3D real time strategy game based on the Roman army, that also allows you to play as other ancient civilizations such as Egyptians or good ol' rough and tumble barbarians.

  • Excerpt: For those of you who have an interest in the ancient world; the first concept for a Praetorian gaurd started with the tent of the commanding general (praetor) of a roman army who selectively picked those of notable value who could best protect him. Over the years this cohort became the cohors praetoria, many great commanders owned one such as Mark Antony, Julius Caesar and the most greatest of all in my opinion... Augustus (Octavian).

  • Excerpt: "...own Praetorian gaurd. Dissapointingly, the game Praetorians is not really about the praetorian gaurd but more about the Roman army in general. You command various troops such as auxilary, archers and spearmen; who fight honorably to the last man. This is an incredible RTS game (real time strategy) which does not fail to add intrigue and engagement with the gamer. The game implores the gamer to use his mind cautiously, you must use your scout ...
  • Pros: cheap, good graphics for an RTS game
  • Cons: difficult at times

This game is very good

  • Conclusion: Although this game is simple, i think its awesome. The thing that this has over rome total war is that it has camps where you can build soldiers when in the game. i think rome total war can be on a scale to large to control all the troops as you want. in praetorians there are various formations such as turtle. its more suitable for younger players.

One of the better RTS

  • Conclusion: A good play but can get boring over time as the scenerios don't change that much only location. Graphics, storyline and sound are good though.

Great Game

Octavius, Amazon

  • Summary: This game has great graphics and good tactical scenarios. I don't know where other reviewers are coming from, but most other RTS games become rather easy even at their hardest level. Games such as Age of Empires and Empire Earth don't put up much of a fight after you've estalished your territory. In contrast, the AI in Praetorians is relentless: they just keep attacking and building defenses. Overall a real fun game with great graphics.

Well done and entertaining

  • Summary: This game is better than most game magazines make it out to be. It is a very accessible strategy game. Battles are relatively involved, although one could argue that strategic depth is not really this game's strength. But that is probably what makes this game so entertaining and accessible for people who normally do not like stragety games. I like the game's graphics. Not the greatest I've ever seen, but once again, they make the game very accessible.

Great strategy game!

  • Summary: I had experience of RTS games (Total Annihilation, Age of Empires and Empire Earth) and after I bought Praetorians and played the first time, I found it very very interesting. It's not the typical RTS game where you have to produce a lot of units and simply attack the enemy (like for example TA kingdoms or others) but you have to think in a strategic way before moving and attacking the enemy.
