About the Game

Cannon Fodder 3 is a tactical action game, which inherited the style and traditions of the original game. The war goes on and its scale is nearly the same as before. 500 conscripts are sent to meet their destiny. What awaits them? A general's stars or a bed of honor?

These 21st century soldiers are equipped much better than their 1994 predecessors. They have 8 types of machinery, suitable for land, surface and airborne operations, as well as 17 types of weapon from assault rifles to the nuclear bomb.

Skirmishes take place all around the world and even in space! You'll fight throughout the day and night, in hot and cold weather, in snow and rain. The enemy is skilled - there're terrorists from all over the world and they have cutting-edge technologies at their disposal: teleportation and various mechanized combat systems. Our heroes will face great challenges - artillery strikes, insuperable force fields, automated turrets, suicide soldiers and giant humanoid robots.

Your savvy will come in handy: your actions aren't limited to slaughter and destruction. You'll have to capture enemy vehicles and bases, save hostages and rescue convicts, hold the line and shoot back from the turrets, search for data discs and spare parts, repair broken robots and bypass minefields. The high command carefully watches your operation’s progress: missions can be aborted because of major offence; minor misbehavior will be reprimanded, and great achievements will be rewarded with medals and promotions. In the end, the very best soldiers will receive the greatest reward: they will return to home camp where warm army barracks, hot army food, soft army bunks and a tender drill sergeant await them. Until the next time.

Key Features:

  • 8 types of controllable machinery
  • 17 types of weaponry, including tactical nuclear strikes and carpet bombings
  • Battles with unique bosses

I managed to get this for a dollar during a sale, and I regret even spending that much. The game is horribly optimized (un-ending loading screens, without progress bars to let you know how long you're going to sit and listen to the looping, faux-metal). Having played the original Cannon Fodder to death on an old 486 PC, I can barely believe the people that made this game have any clue what made the original so much fun. I poured hours into mastering the original's levels, so that I could make it through with my entire squad alive, taking Jools, Jops, et al as far as I could. Grenades and rockets were a valued commodity, and placing them just right on enemy buildings made combat an almost puzzle-like experience. None of that was present in what little portion of this game I was willing to suffer through before quitting. Originally excited to see that this was being made; then disappointed that I heard it wasn't good enough to spend $20 on; then excited to find it on sale for $1; and now, back to disappointed.

I bought this game at a discount of over 90% and still feel ripped off.

Save your money, go to GOG.COM and buy the original cannon fodder. This one inexplicably takes forever to load the next level and then control just feels too loose.

Got this game in a sale for mere pence, thinking it's surely worth that, right? Wrong. If you've got any nostalgia for the original at all, you will be disappointed with this.

The low-rent intro sequence kicks things off and before you know it, you're awkardly shifting your troops around to an ill-concieved metal soundtrack while taking orders from a general who is clearly voiced by a British man sitting in a biscuit tin occasionally doing an American accent.

When he's not talking, all you hear are your soldier's footsteps that always sound like they are walking through hospital corridors no matter what the terrain. Even the misison script is written by someone who must've left school when they were 12. Example: "There are six mission crates hidden in the area! See if you can find it!"

Not to mention the multiplayer is Gamespy, which is no longer even active.

Cannon Fodder is easy to get right, but somehow these developers managed to get it so, so wrong. Presumably because they made it for a bag of chips, as that's the only excuse I can see for the poor production value. Making it in Flash would've been better.

Having grown up with Cannon Fodder and Cannon Fodder 2 on the Amiga, I was a bit hesitant to buy this, bearing in mind the negative reviews about how "it wasn't good compared to the originals"

However, my friend gifted me this for my birthday and I have had a fun time with it, it has elements of the original games in it (however, remember these were for a different time and times move on) the control system is either dual click like it used to be, or use the WASD to move and shoot like some of the more modern top down shooters.

Not so sure its worth £14.99, but maybe £9.99 if its on sale pick it up, its well worth it
