About the Game

To stand alone in war is extremely unpleasant. Extremely pleasant, on the other hand, is the stand-alone version Cossacks: Back to War. Containing all of the gameplay features of Cossacks: European Wars and Cossacks: The Art of War, this is a complete care package for all current and future Cossacks fans. This add-on contains 100 captivating missions taking place between the 16th and 18th centuries. In addition, two new nations, Switzerland and Hungary, are included.

My favourite RTS game of all time. Massive armies, tons of upgrades, and a wide range of different troops make this game awesome, not to mention the ability to play with friends and have up to 6 CPU's against you. Definitely recommended.

Like the previous iterations in the series, combat is a big part of the game and the battles can be quite massive with huge armies meeting each other with a lot of action, noise and much bloodshed. You have to be sure you use the right units for the right purposes and that they are in the most advantageous formation. Leaving artillery at the front of your forces unprotected by men at arms is not very wise. Similarly, attacking fortifications without heavy siege weapons and only a force composed of skirmishing troops and cavalry is a dumb move too, so you have to make sure you balance your forces so that they are suited to the task at hand.

Old game BUT very awesome!

9/10

One of the many great old school RTS of its time. Brings back memories. This is way better than Cossack 2

Ignore the ridiculous metascore of 60, this game is incredible and I spent too many hours of my childhood mowing down people with strelets.

This game is worth it for the sounds of the pikemen alone.
