    Relive the celebrated real-time strategy classic Praetorians, re-imagined in high definition.

    Praetorians is set amidst the political machinations of an emerging Roman Empire. Prove your worth on the battlefields of Egypt, the combat theaters of Gaul and finally the heart of the Empire itself in Italy, in the crusade to become Emperor.

    Your quest will not be an easy one, as the Empire is heavily defended by thousands of different troop types and war machines, all with special skills and individual strengths. To emerge victorious, you'll need to learn to combine your units and exploit the weaknesses of your enemies. But beware the closer you get to the Emperor, the closer you get to facing the Praetorian Guard the most powerful and deadly fighting force in the Empire!

    It’s a tough call as to whether to recommend the game or not. I think what it boils down to is, did you like the original game but have trouble getting it to play now, if so then certainly this is a great purchase for you. Do you like the older style RTS games with less minute detail to focus on and a stripped back easier mechanic, then this might tickle your fancy. But if you need absolutely all the bells and whistles, to have complete control over everything and the most up to date state of the art… then perhaps give it a miss.

    Praetorians was a great RTS made by the creators of the Commandos series. Its remaster is a good opportunity to rediscover this classic, but feels rushed. It would have been great to add more options and new content.

    You feel like a babysitter for an undisciplined Roman legion that got lost in antique texture forests. Between micromanagement and visual boredom the fun is lost too quickly.

    The campaigns provide plenty of content, but repetition and micromanagement hinder the fun by making you feel like you’re fighting the same strategies every battle.

    This remaster simply increased resolution and added minor cosmetic improvements, but at its core, this is a very old strategy game which will frustrate most modern players.

    Praetorians HD Remaster brings the game into the 2020s; but is ill-equipped to compete with the almost two decades of progress since.
