About This Game

Cossacks: European Wars is a historical real-time strategy based on events of the 16th through the 18th centuries in Europe, when nations and states were created and demolished, and wars shed seas of blood. There are 16 nations or regions in Cossacks: Algeria, Austria, England, France, the Netherlands, Piemonte, Poland, Portugal, Prussia, Russia, Saxony, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venice. Each has its own original graphics, economic and technical development peculiarities, military advantages and drawbacks, and unique units and technologies, providing vast choices of tactics and strategy in war against any enemy. Thus, England is the mightiest sea power, Austria has powerful light and heavy cavalry, and Cossacks are the pride of the Ukrainian army.
Battles of up to 8,000 units may be conducted on single or network game maps. One can carry out lingering city sieges, wage guerilla wars, capture commanding heights and arrange ambushes, deploy landing forces on enemy shores, and conduct sea battles. The game system is arranged to reduce per-unit control and resource micromanagement, and to turn to global goals of powerful economy formation, science development, the capturing of new lands, and defending borders.

Dear Review Reader,

I regret to inform you I have had a great victory at much cost. We personally lost 700 troops; however, the enemies lost all of their troops and civilians. Totaling 3500 loses, and we burned the cities to the ground and enslaved the survivors.

Please do not bother to inform the windows to the soldiers, because they do not exist.

A fantastic classic! The graphics might not be much (unsurprisingly) but the game offers loads of fun. I spent hours playing as a kid and only recently repurchased on steam! Fantastic, thoroughly recommend to all fans of real-time strategy.

This game is one ive loved for a very long time, i had it when i was a kid and now ive got it again and its lost none of its amazingness. The mechanics are way beyond its time, as are the graphics and everything about it really. if you love strategy games that give you a challenge and a gorgeous game no matter how many times you play it then this is definitely the game for you.

Игра дества и компьютерных клубов, одна из любимейших стратегий. Отточенный баланс, множество наций + до сих пор милая графа. Однозначно лучшая игра GSC Game World, всякие ёбанные сталкеры и рядом не валялись.
