About This Game

On June 28, 1914 in the center of Saraevo Gavrilo Princip shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife. Those shots began one of the bloodiest wars in the history of mankind the First World War. For four long years the earth trembled from gun explosions, the air was whistling with bullets and the sky was covered with smoke and ashes. It was the first war with such amount of troops to take part in it and with military operations going on earth, in the skies and seas, even under the water. Weapons of mass destruction were used for the first time.
The Entente WWI Battlefields gives a chance to see it with your own eyes and try to change the history. Choosing one of five available countries of this real time strategy game (France, Germany, Russia, Austro-Hungary, England) players get under command troops with various units starting from infantry and cavalry and ending with battleships. All units were made true from historical point of view by using archive documents and photos. Every nation has its own features, which allow you to use strengths and weaknesses of troops from different states.

Economic and military advisors are present in the game to facilitate control over economic and military development. Advisors assist in upgrades, obtaining resources and producing units. There are more than 1000 structures on the map and 80000 units, 3D sound and full encyclopedia of armament that give a chance to feel like high military commander entrusted with the fate of the nations.

• One of the first games based on actual events of the WW I
• Massive battles (up to 10,000 units can take part in a battle from each side!)
• Non-linear mission structure and authentic historical battles
• Various types weaponry, armor, vehicles, buildings from that period, which are unique for each nation
• Entente Gold includes two new campaigns with 7 missions each, map and missions editor.

-Minor graphical bugs on ore deposits, fixed when player makes an action.

I will update this post the more bugs and errors I find. I know this isn't a review, but it is something nesscessary considering all the negative reviews. Please, reccommend this so others can see (if it works for you).

This game may not work on your machine so beware!

The Entente is a Real-time strategy game revolves around World War I and is based on the military events from 1914 to 1918. Players must gather resources that include food, wood, iron, gold, oil and electricity to create and feed their nation and armies of World War I.

The game runs on Cossacks game engine, and is similar to Cossacks/American Conquest series in some ways, the game is overall very unique and fun but has compatibility problems with new hardware and operating systems.

-Good old Isometric graphics similar to Cossacks/American Conquest games.
-Each nation has its own fairly accurately represented style of architecture (Something very hard to see in other games, most games use the same re-skinned copy/paste models).
-Good World War I atmosphere.
-Good sounds and music which fits well in WWI period.
-In-game tutorial, commanding units, developing economy, using tactics and strategy.
-Five nations to choose (Austro-Hungarian Empire, Britain, France, Germany, Russia).
-Campaign for each nation and some extra missions.
-Skimrish mode against AI.
-Wide variety of units, buildings and technology.
-Specialized units that is specific of each country of the era.
-Challenging AI, playing on medium difficulty feels like hard, AI actually uses tactics
-In-game encyclopedia included (Museum) , which is good to have one.
-Would run smoothly on weak/old systems.

-No widescreen support (Not a big deal for me).
-No peace time option in skirmish mode like in Cossacks/American Conquest series.

-Compatibility issues, the game is likely not going to run without problems on new hardware/Operating Systems, (works on my Win7 64-bit Laptop but not on my desktop PC with the same OS and superior hardware).

Overall the game is challenging and fun, I played years ago on Windows XP (outside of Steam), had issues too, but the one on Steam is (Gold) which is v2.0 so in theory it should work better than the old retail version, and that is true because I tried Disc version of The Entente: Battlefields World War I, and it didn't run on Windows 7 even with after patches.

I'm recommending the game to anyone who likes RTS and WWI, especially if you also like Cossacks/American Conquest series, but keep in mind the game might not work on every system, so think about the risk.

The game is fairly cheap, $1.99 in the US, 1,99€ in Europe, £1.59 in UK and less in other countries, if you're a fan of RTS and old games then get it, you can keep it to play later on some weak system that is built for old games like me.

There are some tweaks and fixes that might fix your problems, don't forget to read pinned threads in the community hub, I would have not recommended the game if it was the same version as the old retail one, but this one (v2.0) actually worked on Win7 64-bit, unlike the retail version I have doesn't run, so if you really want to play this game then you have to give it a chance.

I'm guessing the problem is occurring from newer graphics cards and processors but graphics cards is my first guess.

My laptop specs: "The Entente Gold" (Works).

HP G62

-Intel i5 460m
-First generation Intel HD Graphics
-4GB Ram
-Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

My Desktop PC Specs: "The Entente Gold" (does NOT work).

-Intel i5-2500k
-GTX 770
-8GB Ram
-Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate

Cossacks and American Conquest series running perfectly out of the box on almost every known system (Except maybe Win8) I believe it is not hard to do the same for The Entente Gold.

I am kindly asking developers to release a patch to fix compatibility issues with various systems, please fix this game because it deserves more attention and fans.

The game is a hidden gem, if it ever works.

If you stop recruiting new troops, the A.I. on easy will beat the crap out of you. Best A.I. challenge, ever, with gadzillion of troops on the battlefield. You have 1000 troops? So what? My tank will stop them all, literally slaughtering everything in a very large range. How to stop a tank? Well, with another tank, or 100 canons, or a bomber.

However, game still have glitches for the new operating systems. New, I mean everything after XP. Well at least I do have some visual glitches, but the game is playable.

Russia=Women soldiers. Definitely would play again and again and again and again.
