Praetorians HD Remaster Gameplay – How does it play?

In Praetorians we play ourselves from the small leader of a troop through more than 20 campaign missions to the throne of the emperor of the Roman Empire. We command the troops in battle, explore the surroundings and use the terrain to our advantage. All units have special abilities, such as the scout who can send out his falcon to explore the surrounding area.

It starts with small skirmishes and ends in big battles with hundreds of units, army camps, fortifications and big tactical decisions. Tactical formations play an important role in Praetorians, because the different abilities of the units can only be used effectively with the correct positioning of bow guns, lance carriers and other units.

My first impressions

In my first personal warm-up sessions, I quickly developed the feeling of a Roman troop moving through enemy territory, always having to proceed carefully and well planned. Exploration and terrain really play a big role. For example, a single squad of archers on a mountain with a steep cliff can defeat half an army if they have to run around the mountain to find their way up. And if there are also some melee units blocking their way up, it is possible to defeat a much larger pack of enemies with only a few troops, simply by clever planning and positioning.

In Praetorians the feeling of old real time strategy classics like in the predecessor or also in Age of Empires or Age of Mythology came back quickly. Even though Praetorians doesn’t focus so much on building up, but more on special troops, formations and terrain. Here Praetorians HD Remaster makes nothing different, as well as, because the gameplay is exactly like in the original game of 2003.
