  • Summary: Cossacks II "killed" the series and anything that had to do with it, after the fabulous start of Cossacks: European wars, it managed to destroy what it's predecessor succeeded at: big maps, with thousands of troops, battle oriented but with an important role of developing the economy yourself, sea battles, technology playing a role in the game etc.

  • Summary: One of the biggest disappointments of my gaming life. While not a terrible game in it self, after the relatively good cossacks 1, I was expecting so much more, particularly in terms of LAN gaming and AI. The engine is dated, the maps small... I was converted over to the "Total War" series after this.

  • Summary: This Cossacks 2 has a good concept. Real-time strategy, unit based warfare like Empire Total War with real-time economic elements like AOE 3. Two really good gameplay elements melded into one and it is really a shame that poor polish ultimately made this game unplayable. There is huge degree of micro-management, with workers, units, and buildings all needing a great deal of care and This Cossacks 2 has a good concept.

  • Excerpt: Just not as good as the first one. It was a hard test trying to beat Cossacks EW, but this game has a much shorter shelf-life and destruction/killing just isnt as fun anymore. The graphics are better and it does look nicer, but by trying to go a step up, they've lost more than they have gained with this sequel.

Cossacks 2

  • Excerpt: Cossacks 2 is made by the creators of the famous Cossacks series of strategy games based on the 18th century and this new installment takes place during the Napoleonic wars. Like previous versions it allows you, the player, to control large armies made up of thousands of men and war machines as you face off against other armies commanded by the computer A.I. in an attempt to conquer territory for your country.
  • Pros: Nice graphics, with thousands of troops on screen
  • Cons: Not enough to live up to the original .

Cossacks 2

ToNick, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Cossacks 2 is made by the creators of the well known 'Cossacks - European Wars' and is a worthy sequel. This game allows the player to control large armies very easily which, when there are 64,000 men on the map, can be extremely useful. The game is significantly different from the original Cossacks. The formations are similar, but you can know do things like rank firing and the reloading time is know similar to real life. It is so much better.
  • Pros: Great game
  • Cons: difficult at first

Worth the money

  • Conclusion: This game is very realistic whilst playing and you do a lot to be accurate like choosing the precise moment for your troops to fire and to get them in the correct formation. There is a tutorial that i would reccomend doing as it can be a bit hard to learn, a campaign for whichever nation you pick and a battle for Europe.
