Brought together as a bargain package, and just in time for those quiet Autumn nights with nothing on the telly, the ‘European Wars’ and ‘Art of War’ versions of CDV’s Cossacks games arrive to fully test your strategic nous.
Cossacks: European Wars is a Real Time Strategy of truly Epic proportions. Set in the XVI-XVIII centuries, it’s your chance to battle it out between 16 nations, and over 8,000 units. European Wars is based on historical events that took place during the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries in Europe, when nations and states were created and demolished, gold was turned into numerous armies and the never-ending stream of wars shed oceans of blood. It was the time when new regulations were developed in armies, and commanders’ mastery was polished to perfection. The new era began with thundering cannons and whistling bullets!
The Art of War expansion offers a simple interface, as well as several levels of difficulty and a ‘save mission scenario’ option. This makes Cossacks even more accessible to the inexperienced RTS player, and conversely there’s plenty for more seasoned gamers to get their teeth into. Add to this a mission creator and an auto-debug mode, and you’ve got yourself one smart and highly playable game.
Cossacks Gold Edition is a twofer that’ll last a lifetime if you want it to – otherwise, we’ll see you in the Spring.
