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

Compatibility problems aside,The Entente Gold is a fine game for those who seek games related to The First World War.
All factions have uniquely modelled buildings and voicelines in their native language.
(Russians speak russian,Germans german,and the soliders of Austria-Hungary speak hungarian)
The levels are HUGE,which makes maneuvering with larger groups of soliders.
The game lets you controll almost two thousand men on map/player.
The soundtrack is memorable.
From the graphical standpoint,the game is plain mediocre,or even bad.(depends on how tolerant you are about graphics)
Overall,the game is worth picking at it's realtively low price of 1,99.

The Entente is a old-styled RTS based on rarely-used WW1 setting. It was released in 2003-2004 and was made by same people who made Cossacks, on same engine as well, unless I am mistaken. And now it was rereleased on Steam.

You will notice that while in Steam it's called Entente Gold, in the game itself it shows "v2.0" and intro was edited to say "Entente II". It's not clear what was changed. I remember somebody on Steam noticing it and saying that some sprites were changed. Like they were working to remake it, but then gave up.

And sadly, it wasn't changed enough to be made compitable with newest Windows. While it may work fine on Windows XP, anything newer will have bucket and half of troubles, bugs and glitches. Then again, you aren't likely to progress past "frozen mouse" anyway. So you will have to look around Steam forums and guides a lot to fix it all. To try to fix it all. Having ended up using Voodoo emulating software of sorts, I still would have low FPS in this game. Well, it was fine, but only when nothing was selected. And you have to select buildings to order 50 more soldiers, you know. And some people seemed to fail to make it run properly even after trying all solutions. So, be careful. This is the main reason not to recommend the game.
Oh, yes, no Widescreen. You can set it, but it will just will crash the game.

No idea how mutliplayer is in this game. Actually, when I clicked on multiplayer option, it was showing nothing aside from mirror-effect. You know, when screen places frame on top of each other when there is no background. Leaving only trail of mouse. It could be because I didn't fix it fully. Or it could be because v2.0 changed things or possibly deleted everything related to multiplayer, including menues.

I didn't play much of game because of it lagging on my laptop after fixes. Just few random map battles. It's quite a standard old-school RTS. Even WW1 setting doesn't bring much to it, no trenches to be found there. Having few recources types may be scary, but you just put needed buildings on top of nearby recource pools and then send remaining workers to work near windmill. And well, being 2D engine in beggining of 2000s, it means that it sacrificed 3D looks for sake of having tons of units at same time. And it's spammy, alright.

One of the more interesting things in it is how your main force, soldiers, are mass produced. In masses. Quickly and cheaply, filling your screen up. But they die like a fly when met with any defencive. While power and recources and time needed to produce better units grow geometrically, so to say. You can make basic soldier every few seconds. Or take half-minute to produce machine gunner. Or few minutes to produce artilerry cannon. Which hits good but misses 90% of time, so it's better used on center of a town. And has firing range bigger than vision range. Doesn't stop unit AI from shooting. Or you can take 20 minutes to create a tank. And the most powerful units are naval ones, taking no less than half-hour or more to complete. Hm, perhaps it's realistical, seeing how history makes a big deal when a ship is lost. It does make water maps take forever when you need a water transport.

But then again, looking at players on YouTube and looking at AI, mass-produced soldiers are still the thing to do. Sure, a soldiers die like a fly when met with guard house filled with machine gunner. What it means is that you have to create 10 times more soldiers and zerg rush it down, watching them grenade everything. It's also faster than producing heavier units.

And seeing how multiplayer does not exist here, AI isn't all that great either. No, it's hard. Until you figure out the game. It's just that his main tactic is massing soldiers are and sending waves after waves at you. It could use more variety, really.

Well, it's quite a curious old-school RTS. Or mass producment of basic units while wasting 30 minutes to build something bigger. I didn't spend enough time to say for sure if it's bad or good one. But seeing how it may or may not run even after fixes, you should avoid it.

-Game seems to blackscreen whenever you select something in the menus, but it only remains for 2-5 seconds.
-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).

Do not buy this game.

An excellent looking game for those interested in the Cossack/American Conquest style engines, HOWEVER:

The game simply will not work on newer operating systems, i.e. Windows 8. The developers have no interest at all in responding the these concerns, rather content to milk each new purchaser for its garbage price of $0.49.
As someone who used to play this title, I am dissapointed in the Steam release, dysfunctional as it is.
