Cossacks: European Wars Demo
After the humankind evolved and spread around the world, the conflicts between different nations have increased in scale and number, culminating with millions of people fighting and dying in the same war. Prior to this, however, slightly smaller armies met on the battlefield, although the violence was just as brutal and the results were the same.
Take part in the greatest wars throughout history
Cossacks: European Wars provides you with a chance to play a part in these wars and influence their outcome, by coming up with the right strategy and defeating your enemies. Hence, you can experience the thrill of legendary battles that took place throughout the history, between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries, such as the Seven Years war, the Ukrainian independence war and the Northern war.
Naturally, this also means that you get to play with a variety of civilizations and experience the technological advancements when it comes to warfare, since some of these battles are more than two centuries apart. The game even provides you with a very hefty encyclopedia, which holds a lot of information about the armies, weapons and the technologies used in battle.
Massive-scale confrontations on huge maps
The Cossacks series has become renowned through the fact that it offers some of the most epic battles ever seen in a video game, with up to 10,000 units on the screen at the same time and large maps to hold them all at the same time. Moreover, you can experience the same amount of fun in the multiplayer mode as well, where you can battle with players from all over the world.
Graphically-speaking, the game features quite detailed environments, although the units cannot hold too much detail, due to the fact that they would seriously slow down the matches. Additionally, since the engine runs in 2D, the camera is fixed in a classic top-view isometric position, which should not pose too many problems for those of you who are familiar with the RTS genre.
Witness history from a first-hand perspective
In the end, Cossacks: European Wars features a lot of interesting elements, especially when it comes to the massive battles and the variety of unit types that are put at your disposal. Thus, even if the fights sometimes get very difficult to follow or control, the game maintains its appeal.
