UK Gamer Cossacks Review
Posted @ 10:38 PM || Angel Socrateius

UK Gamer has reviewed Cossacks, and found it a very good game, giving it a 9 out of 10. They made a couple references to Age of Empires, both "positively" and "negatively". Here's an excerpt from the article:

After reading about the huge amount of units present in the game I wondered how many nations were actually featured in Cossacks. The answer? Sixteen entire nations, all with their own technology trees, all with their own units and buildings, and every one of them playable. Age of Empires, eat your heart out (with a spoon!)

PC Arena Cossacks Review
Posted @ 9:10 PM || Angel Socrateius

PC Arena has written a review on Cossacks. They really seemed to like the game, and gave it a whopping 10 out of 10. Here's an excerpt from the article:

The graphics of this game are very good compared to other RTS games.The game also uses 3D contoured scenery, which means that placing cannon on a hill really does give you an advantage in range and accuracy. I found the movement of the ships and cannon to be smooth, which can often be a problem on RTS games.
Overall, this is an excellent RTS game which surely rivals the like of Red Alert 2. Good gameplay complemented by good graphics make this an excellent game.
