I thought I might create a thread and link to all the reviews we've seen for Praetorians so far, so we can get a list of scores. If you see any more, post a link to them here and I'll update this post with any new ones. :)

Couple of new ones in today, from IGN (thanks, curtlegion) and Games Domain.

I'm seeing some disagreements in the reviews already. One said that Praetorians is perhaps the most strategic strategy game he's played, while another said that the game is not very deep. I guess it depends on what angle you're approaching it from: the combat is very deep and involving, but there aren't any other complicated strategy elements like trading or some such. I like the combat focus myself. :D

Go to Links section.

There's a new one up at Gamer Nation UK. They really liked the game, but thought it was missing 'something'. Nice and vague. :)

A couple of new ones from Supanet and Tech TV; both gave it 4 out of 5.

Tech TV has the review on TV as well: 'Watch today at 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Thursday 3/27 at 4 p.m. Eastern.'

Some new ones over the last few days, from EuroGamer, games xtreme, Khabal Gaming and Loadedinc.

The scores are all pretty consistent, around the 80% mark.

Thought I'd give this a bump. There are 30-odd reviews up there now, all of them positive.

I have the games domain review at my site--

This site is quite cool, it just collates all the reviews and gives an average score etc.. Covers all the big websites and even mag scores too.
