Cossacks: European Wars is a historical real-time strategy based on events of the 16th through the 18th centuries in Europe, when nations and states were created and demolished, and wars shed seas of blood. There are 16 nations or regions in Cossacks: Algeria, Austria, England, France, the Netherlands, Piemonte, Poland, Portugal, Prussia, Russia, Saxony, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, and Venice. Each has its own original graphics, economic and technical development peculiarities, military advantages and drawbacks, and unique units and technologies, providing vast choices of tactics and strategy in war against any enemy. Thus, England is the mightiest sea power, Austria has powerful light and heavy cavalry, and Cossacks are the pride of the Ukrainian army.

Battles of up to 8,000 units may be conducted on single or network game maps. One can carry out lingering city sieges, wage guerilla wars, capture commanding heights and arrange ambushes, deploy landing forces on enemy shores, and conduct sea battles. The game system is arranged to reduce per-unit control and resource micromanagement, and to turn to global goals of powerful economy formation, science development, the capturing of new lands, and defending borders.

ASfolks and ticarex, shut the **** up. This is a great, beuatiful European game featuring the very best of our glorious Germanic and Slavic nations. Historically accurate, bright and colourful, VERY indepth, but on a grand strategic level, not a mind-numbing micro-management level, and no brainless rushing/spamming will work. This game BLOWS AOE series RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER. Since when did your aoe **** feature ture grand strategy and full-scale napoleonic warefare, it is a mindless micro-fest full of noobs, n00bs and j00bs (Jewish n00bs). What the hell kind of **** game lets you sack a city with 5 soldiers? (answer: AoE)

Cossacks>Other strategy games>Steaming pile of ****>Age of Empires

Suck my hairy Slavic/Germanic and purely EUROPEAN ****, you filthy AmeriKKKan whores.

I agree with you 100%, Aoe is a steaming pile of **** compared to this, the game features no realism whatsoever, and only has a few nations, also AOE features hero units, Cossacks features generals, that have the same life span as any soldier on the battlefield, AOE is a game for children that do not understand the sophistication of games like Cossacks.

Yup, Cossacks is quite a nice game.

But please folks, one should stop putting one game above the other. Played both (Cossacks & AoE), like both, there's no need for f*cking besmirching one of them. =-[
