    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!

    Praetorians HD may not be as advanced or detailed as games that have come since but it is an incredibly effective throwback and one I greatly enjoyed.

    A comeback for nostalgics and fans, that doesn’t succeed to give the same feelings as the old PC version.

    Between the historical limitations linked to the development period and the very difficult operation of adaptation to console peripherals, Praetorians HD implicitly suggests us to opt for the PC version.

    A dry, unchallenging game that needed a proper remake far more than an underwhelming remaster. While it is refreshing to have a game like Praetorians on PS4, it’d be a bit more refreshing if it was a good one.
