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

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

If Cannon Fodder 3 had been released a decade ago, it would have become a cult hit. Now, it's a decent old-school arcade game.

Prohibitive load times, I mean, c'mon...2+ minutes "loading" screen on an i7, SSD, 16 gb ram. Something is clearly wrong here. The game play is also perhaps a little to faithful to the originals, maybe some people will see that as a plus though.

Disappointing, but at the end of the day it is what it is, a third Cannon Fodder game with terrible loading.

I spent a lot of time with Cannon Fodder 1 and 2 as a wee lad. The idea of playing the best parts of a military RTS without having to worry about a home base and resource management was right up my oh so narrow alley. So, naturally, when I saw Cannon Fodder 3 discounted during the Winter Sale, I scooped it. Despite a mouse/camera kink, it was exactly what I was looking for.

To see what else I have to say, and to help decided for yourself whether or not you'd like to play, check out the Cannon Fodder 3 episode of my show, Should I Play?! at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wiuk4mWg_8A&feature=c4-overview&list=UUWKYL-qXKRlXN_DZjFe4HzQ
