Summary: Despite all of this disappontment by small maps and less number of features, on which complains fans to, i am enjoyed by this game. It is real hardcore strategy where skirmish battle may continue for a two hours and more on easy mode.
Summary: Just finished this game, I bought it two weeks ago. I have to say the way battles are fought is most excellent however it's buggy needs a new patch. Loved it though and had a great time playing it.
Summary: I have to agree with gamespy on their review;that the RTS isn't as ingrossing as the in the first game was a major disapointment for me. The turn based game, though rather simplistic, is still fun.
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...
Pros: Nice graphics, with thousands of troops on screen
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.
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...
Summary: Nothing is ever as good as the original, so keeping an open mind always helps. If you like the napoleonic period then its good and fairly accurate, but more research should of been done, ie the rank and file formations used and what weapons fired..
Summary: The other reviews on this list seem to be biased, so i decided to write my own review. As you can see, I have given this game 4 stars. If any players of Cossacks are looking to buy this game, i would reccomend it to them.
Excerpt: Cossacks 2 is based on the battles of the Napoleonic Wars. It is suitable for ages 12 plus, although my 10 year old son plays it considerably better than me! It comes on two cd roms but you only require the second disk to actually play the game.
Pros: Great strategy game
Cons: Had to buy a new monitor to get it to work . Slow to load
