About This 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.

I've played this a lot before 'Steam era' and I must say that this is still one of my favourite RTS games.

Pros:

-Fun RTS

-Crazy amount of unit numbers with somewhat less micromanagement

-Realism

-Classic

Cons:

-Alttab makes the game crash. This is not a bug, this is a feature.

-Slavic netcode tries to balance game speed selection across multiple people

-Gamespy MP is dead, requires hamachi or some other equivalent


Verdict: If you played it as a kiddo and want to play again, get it. If you didn't, wait for Cossacks 3.

Crash at launch, over and over. Changed display settings, still crashed. Changed to older monitor - loads but you cannot see parts of the screen. Like half of the build menu. Tried several computers, several monitors all with very low display settings for these older games. Crash. Crash. Crash. I bought 2 copies, one for myself and one for my son so we could play together. Instead we spent over an hour crashing. What a waste of money. Would appreciate a refund. Maybe Cossacks 3 will be better.
Crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash... crash...

12 years ago, I had an interesting 2v2 battle.

It lasted 9 hours.
9 FRICKING HOURS.

Had to call in sick just to finish the game.

NO HD version, NO new freatures, NO achievements or card drops, JUST nostalgia and one of the best strategy games ever made.

beautyfull graphics and an awesome gameplay, start with 10 worker units and finish it with a 700 man strong army.
you can WIN with MASS OR CLASS, you can send over 1000 units but they can weaker as 400 fully upgradet units.

to bring it on the point, when you LIKE GOOD strategy games, you do NOTHING, NOTHING wrong with it.

EDIT: for me it runs perfectly on win7, i played it with a friend (LAN) and we had no problem, he used win8 and yeah the first time he had many crashes but we found the problem (start the game through the exe in the steam folders .
