The first game, Cossacks: European Wars, and its expansions were set in Europe in the 17th and 18th century, with the sequel Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars and its expansion is set just in the Napoleonic era. I do live in a city Napoleon once seized, but sadly I had to google, when he lived. So, now you will too, tadam! Free history lesson. Cossacks III, released in 2016, however it is a remake of the classic game, that originally launched in year 2000. It looks really good, it has a nice graphics, and everything is in 3D. It has randomly generated maps and five historic single player campaigns. And you can create amazing huge battles. Look at that. This is really impressive. And as for now, I have read that it has issues with multiplayer. Some say that game crashes when total amount of units goes over 1500 and others say that if your connection is lost – you automatically lose the game. Maybe creators will fix that, so if multiplayer and not single player, which is great, is your thing – read comments carefully before buying. Empires Dawn of the Modern World From Middle Ages through World War II: here you will find an array of historic troops and abilities over land, sea, and air. Lead 7 civilizations; fight 3 campaigns and conquer epic maps in historical battles throughout the history.
Convincing voice acting, very nice map design and good graphics. As one said – not excellent, but really clear and easy to read. Seems like a nice game, huh? But what are the flaws? Well, people are saying that on Windows 7 mouse cursor doesn’t work. RTS game without mouse support is like plane without wings, like Steven Seagal without dictators carrot – you can look at it but it’s useless. So, be carefull. Game is pretty cheap, only 8 euros 49 cents on GOG.com. Sorry I can’t see how many dollars, because I’m from Lithuania and gog.com only shows me the price in our currency. But I think it’s about 10 dollars anyway. Starcraft 2 Starcraft 2 is a free to play game. If you want to play multiplayer, there is no restrictions, you can download it and immerse yourself into amazing battles. If you want to play campaigns, you will have to pay real money, but hey, they are really good, so it’s worth it.
Starcraft 2 is no doubt one of the greatest real time strategy games, and, to be fair, one of the greatest games overall. You can choose from three races, they are completely different, with distinctive gameplay, units and so on. Zerg, Protoss and Terran – alien insects, alien aliens and humans relatively. Game is quite easy to learn, but if your dream is to be a professional player, you will have to perform about 300 or more actions per minute. That’s a lot. If you’re casual player, you will probably start with about 20. Spellforce 2: Anniversary Edition Anniversary edition includes Spellforce 2: Shadow Wars and the add-on Dragon Storm, also many bugfixes and widescreen support and full compatibility with modern operating systems.
