Critic Reviews for Praetorians HD Remaster

‎The double pack Commandos 2 & Praetorians: HD Remaster offers two classics of the strategy of the legendary Spanish studio Pyro Studios, which return completely renewed in high definition, new tutorials, campaign missions and compatibility with controls in the console versions. In addition, it includes an integrated version of the Praetorians – HD Remaster multiplayer mode.‎

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.

I'm having a hard time directly recommending this game. Classic fans are going to love the HD remaster, but newcomers, especially ones to the RTS genre, are going to be in for a tough time. It's got a deceptively tough learning curve, and it's not very forgiving, but it's also a challenging and engaging game. Plus, who doesn't love being the Roman Empire and rolling over your enemies? If you're looking to reclaim some classic glory, go with this Praetorians, but otherwise, this might be one to miss. I should mention that during my time with the game, I never saw any multiplayer games active.

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 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.

Praetorians HD Remaster is a classic RTS game in all its merit, but also in all its limitations, especially considering the PlayStation 4 version and the features of the DualShock 4 and the couch player. It has its advantages, but suffers in all aspects – narrative, audiovisual and gameplay – to dialogue with the current moment, even though it belongs to a relatively rare genre on consoles today.

Take the lead of the Roman Legions and conquer the whole known world, this time in a remastered take on the unique classic of the RTS genre.

The Praetorians is a valuable and respectable work in the style of RTS strategy, which is not well reconstructed and the lack of adequate improvements makes the game a poorer experience by today's standards.
