Informace o hře

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. These countries waged war in the late Middle Ages and essentially influenced the development of European military strategies. This addition causes the second add-on of Cossacks to pass the threshold of allowed gaming fun.

Oh this game takes me back... It was the late 90's. Gaming hadn't quite devloped into the modern behemoth that it is today and adventuresome games were as common as dragons in Skyrim - not everywhere, but you knew for certain they did exist.

Cossacks is a base-building, tech-researching RTS that has a world of charm despite being rough around the edges. Set bewteen the 16th and 18th centuries in Europe, Cossacks: European Wars and Cossacks: Back to War (the standalone expansion) cover roughly twenty nations from Poland to Portugal, from Algeria to Ukraine - and just about everything inbetween.

Battles are fought with ranged and melee infantry and cavalry, as well as land-based artillery and naval units. The number of units the game can display on screen at any one time is in the thousands, as I recall. Enough so that an army can look like a literal blood-stain seeping across the map.

Resources aren't just for purchasining units, but are also required for upkeep. What this means is: run out of coal and you run out of gunpowder. Run out of gold and your units can mutiny. Run out of gold after you've built a ship-of-the-line and you'll have a mutinous unit on the order of a Renaissance "Death Star" gone rogue.

While this might sound like it requires a great deal of micromanagement, it's actually fairly easy to keep track of - just monitor your resource counters at the top of the screen. If one starts to drop, start some research or throw some more peasants at it. If your food drops below zero, your units will begin to starve.

Some other great concepts found in the Cossacks series: Peacetime in multiplayer. Essentially, you can agree to a set amount of Peacetime - a period where you cannot make aggressive moves. Well, you can, but your units will die when they cross the peacetime borders. This allows for the construction of intricate defenses and massed strategic-level armies.

Another favorite feature of mine and often copied by other games is the right-click-drag to change facing. I can't swear that Cossacks is the first series to use this feature, but it definitely was the first one that I'd played.

The game's default speed is incredibly fast on modern computers, but it can be slowed down to suit your needs - or sped up if you feel you've really just had way too much caffeine today.

All in all a stellar example of base-building RTS. Limited scope and limited marketing kept the game from the rightful place it deserves among the genre, but the game is far more than worth it.

Downsides? Don't expect much in the way of tutorial. You'll also need to really read through the Academy (the main research structure) as well as the Blacksmith and other structures to find all the tech and research upgrades. If you don't mind all of that, you'll find a true diamond in the rough.

This is one the best stradegy games I have ever played. Everything about this game makes you think of your economy versus your army. However, most of the game focuses on your military and navy. This is the best in the Cossacks series and the only one you need. Each nation is matched as they would be in the 1600 to 1700s. So late is better to go with a strong nation from that time. So not the middle eastern countries, but they are very stronge in the early part of the game. It is Napolionic fighting and is very addictive. This is very recommened to anyone who like RTS's. It will become a favorite, when you see 3000 of your troops attack a city.

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.

Simply amazing! I grew up with this and it was absolutely fantastic to live out these huge battles with my friends. The unit cap is simply not there and as long as you can stablish a solid economy, you can produce some ridiculous armies. There is definitely a learning curve, but it is much more rewarding than many other RTS games I have played.

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.
