#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 05/11/2020 15:34 CET Veteran troops experience déjà vu, but there’s more appeal for fresh-faced generals Without regurgitating what’s been said before, Cossacks II is an increasingly charming 2D RTS set in the Napoleonic era, where ranks of troops shoot their load and spend an excruciatingly tense minute trying to ram their […]

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 05/11/2020 15:24 CET Certain types of game can be deceptively tricky to review. While the majority of games are likely to appeal more to fans of their specific genre than others, titles like Cossacks 2: Battle for Europe tend to split gamers into three very distinct camps. The most predictable two […]

Review from 1UP

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 04/11/2020 19:10 CET The improved tactical A.I. almost justifies the price of admission to Cossacks II: Battle for Europe but fails to make up for the larger issues. Yes, it’s now able to spar with a decent player, but the unbalanced and visually unappealing Cossacks II core hasn’t changed beyond that. […]

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 04/11/2020 18:54 CET Why can’t war be as nice and civilised as it was back in the 1800s? It was a time when generals would greet each other with mutual respect, before blasting each other’s armies into smithereens and leaving the once lush green countryside a few different shades of blue, […]

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 03/11/2020 19:38 CET The Battle of Waterloo has been reproduced in videogame form on more than a dozen occasions and yet so far no-one has got round to modelling one of the most important factors in the French defeat – Napoleon’s colossal haemorrhoids. (It’s said that chronic piles limited the Little […]

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 03/11/2020 19:15 CET Cossacks II – Battle for Europe, out to take over Europe with their new stand-alone expansion which adds a turn-based skirmish mode. Once the game started, I took interest at the introduction, while it was not the best (or well acted) it still does the trick of getting […]

Review from Hexus

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 03/11/2020 18:45 CET Nick Haywood gets out his wallpapering table, paints his lead figures and lines up for some Napoleonic wargaming just as the missus hoovers up half his cavalry and two infantry battalions… I’ve always wondered what it is about wargamers that they find so enthralling. I’ve played D+D to […]

Review from GameSpot

#Cossacks2BattleforEuropeReview Date of publish: 03/11/2020 18:28 CET Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars, which came out in 2005, was an engaging strategy game that let you relive the pomp and circumstance that was Napoleonic combat. Huge formations of men stately marched around the countryside, only to be cut down by withering gunfire. There’s actually much more to […]

Can you change the course of history at Waterloo? Now here we have a period of history that’s ripe for strategy games. The days of grand armies, where careful strategy played a huge […]
