About This Game

Three centuries of war continue - with even more frantic combat and more desperate power struggles raging across the American continent. The Spanish sound the attack on Yucatan amidst fierce Maya and Aztec resistance. The Germans put all their efforts into finding the legendary Eldorado. The Pontiac Uprising ends in a terrifying bloodbath between Native Americans and the British. And the Russians will do anything to conquer Alaska at the cost of the Haida.
There is a fantastic bonus for shrewd strategists: the great new "battlefield" mode in single-player and multiplayer modes! Tactical skill alone will determine victory or defeat in single-player and multiplayer games. So, plunge into battle!

Indians, Indians everywhere

THE GOOD
Nice Warcraft-esque gameplay
intresting time period
muskets (nuff said)
good game concepts
decently made map editor

THE BAD
European AI doesnt do ♥♥♥♥
Indian AI does nothing but spam peasants at your base and keep all its power units at home
gameplay elements that dont work
historical inaccuarcy (this is a problem for me)
Indian AI is also practically impossible to defeat on your own

THE UGLY
WHY THE ♥♥♥♥ ARE THE INDIAN PEASANTS SO ♥♥♥♥ING STRONG? THE EUROPEAN PEASANTS CANT EVEN FIGHT! IN FACT IF EUROPEAN PEASANTS GET TOO CLOSE TO THE ENEMY, THE ENEMY CAN CAPTURE THE PEASANTS. BUT NOT THE INDIANS! THE INDIAN PEASANTS CARRY BOWS WITH FIRE ARROWS AND KNIVES! AND THEY ARE LITERALLY EVERYWHERE! THEY SEND HORDE AFTER HORDE AFTER HORDE OF THE BLOODY THINGS. THEY'RE ♥♥♥♥ING TERMINATORS COMPARED TO THE EUROPEANS. DIDNT THESE IDIOTS OWN GUNS? JESUS CHRIST! ITS LIKE PLAYING GOD OF WAR WHERE THE INDIANS ARE KRATOS AND YOU'RE THE MYTHICAL GREEK GOD STEVEN HAWKINGS.

if you liked th original then you will love this, the new factions are amazing and feel like they are stand alone factions instead of clones. anyone who likes a challenge will love this game. great RTS and it will keep you busy for hours. they also can have thousands of soldiers on screen at once

This game is an outstanding strategy game. You can choose from plenty of different nations and fight they even have American Indian Tribes you can play as(which if you play them right they are really overpowered). Each nation and tribe has their own troops and building. 9/10 mainly because it doesnt work the best on Windows 8.

This is one of my favorite RTS games to play. Forget the graphic and focus on gamplay. This game features soldiers on a MASSIVE scale. 1000 muskets can disappear in seconds to withering cannon fire, a hail of arrows, or the charge of calvary. The instant battles take quite awhile to get through but going mass calvary army seems the best way to me. Get this game. Its cheap and you might find that you'll get some fun out of it.

Very many units.

A bloody awesome game. very old, but still only the kind of pathing issues you'd still find in new games, and when you're attacking with four thousand pikemen, who cares about the three stuck behind a tree? definitely worth getting, because old=cheap.

This game has most the cool things about cossacks, but with much more interesting and diverse factions to experiment with. It's way ♥♥♥♥ing harder than cossacks too. Despite the brutal efficiency of the AI, i'd call this one a favourite.

crashes if you try and actually play anything on it, and if you try and change any of the settings such as the scroll speed, ive wasted 4 pounds, which is a shame because i loved the american conquest games.

Good game but has many flaws/bugs;
1. When your armies are moving through neutral animals, instead of killing them, they'll walk through the neutral animals and stand there as the neutral animals ♥♥♥♥ your soldiers till they are half dead until your soldiers do anything about it.
2. You'll give your men orders to move across the map, they only move 1/16 of the way and stop, and you have to keep massing them orders and pay attention to them.
3. AI rushes you constantly, even before you have stable defenses (the game doesn't give you enough time to set up like other RTS games do).
If you want a good Cossacks game, stick to the original Cossacks: Back to War, it lets you build true defenses, less buggier and a little less micromanagement.
