I like historical strategy games and every once in a great while I get the urge to break out of the more traditional eras. You know, play something that focuses on a time period between the Crusades and the Second World War. Unfortunately, there aren’t nearly as many titles dealing with the conflicts of those eras. So when one comes along, you kind of have to bite the bullet and take what you can get. That’s pretty much the position I’ve been in with the previous Cossacks games. Though they had some obvious weaknesses, it was hard to complain simply because there weren’t any other developers willing to take on the subject of post-medieval, pre-modern warfare.
