HI, I find this Game even today nocht Class. Recommend it to anyone who has a desire to play On Strategy games. However, I would find it even better if You could play the Game in several Languages. Would be nice if it were always going to Be in German. Still great Game. Mfg

Classic Unfortunately not in German, still have a CD-Rom Version that is German. I Used to like to play this Game. If I bought this Game cheaply, unfortunately only in English is available at Steam. Another Criticism is, I have Windows 8.1, when Starting a new Game, the Screen remains black and no Sound. Too bad, too Bad I'm just saying.

Good old strategy game, actually my first real strategy game. A Game just right for in between. But what annoying me is that I bought the Game 3 Weeks ago for €52 and it is 90% cheaper NOW, so £0.49:-(* Trouble * Just for Recommendation; In the face of time is not the most, but those who are into old games or games from their Youth (Childhood) should access, because for €0.49 you can't say anything.

The Game is definitely Fun until now, Clearly it's already older, the Graphics are not the latest and it has to contend with few Problems on Windows 7 Computers, or graphics Jerks, but in the Basic Form it's already pretty fun, especially with Friends the whole thing is also Spie lable. My Recommendation: Buy the Game, Install the Imperial Mod for the Game, which adds some new Classes such as Greeks etc., and play with friends, whether against each other or with each other against The AI. The Kamapgne can also be played well. With Friends definitely a Lot of Fun:)

Praetorians is a Game that seems fast and complex in the Beginning. However, over time, it becomes more and more understandable and logical. Those who like Total-War Battles and Age of empires will find their happy with the Game. Nagut ... It does not contain complex building Elements. Much more takes place on an Age of Empires Map InTimeBattles from TotalWar. There are also Forests and co. In which you can hide your Troops, Terrain bonuses and Formations. If you know the Terrain and lead your Units into battle in the Necessary Formation, everyone should look at the Taste of a Commander of the Roman/Egyptians ... Come. ;D
