Summary: I haven't played all the way through this game yet, however what I have played has been pretty fun. It's a great deal for the cost. Although you can occasionally get it a bit cheaper on STEAM. If you are into this kind of game I'd give it a go.
Summary: Praetorians is mostly just fighting and trying to control villages. Its not that much of a strategy game. In Praetorians you can control either the Romans or barbarians. This game is like Celtic Kings: Rage of War but when you make troops you make them in units like 30 or 12 instead if just 1.
Summary: Some gamers have been hard on this game since the advent of Rome Total War but as far as a fun rts games go this game delivers a nice bang for the buck If you like the Age of Empires this rendition of Roman Imperialism is great! Sound and graphics are cool and charmingly accurate.
Summary: As far as Real-time strategies go this game is pretty standard. You assume the role of various figures during the time of the Roman Empire: it's formation, during, aftermath, etc... and take on various missions... Standard RTS formulas here, nothing new...

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.
Summary: Don't mistake this game: it was not designed as a budget game. It is from 2003 and was great for its day... you can really tell when you are playing it. The gameplay is simple but quite fun. I would almost go as far as calling it elegant.
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...
Summary: "Praetorians" is sort of a "Age of Empires/Total War" hybrid set during the 1st century BC when Julius Caesar and the other members of the 1st Triumverate vied to increase Roman dominance upon the peoples of Northern Europe and the Middle East.
