Cossacks 3 is just a upgraded remake of the original.

Dealing with the 17th and early 18th century. You fight campaigns, play skirmishes ect.

The game is so close to the original that they even recreated the old annoyances. ( Like units loosing formation when using transport ship

Is that the one where artillery rotates to keep enemy in its line of fire until it has reloaded. That often means that by the time it fires it is pointing at your own lines and blows a hole in a unit.

I think so, they have gone so old school, i think they stuck with the artillery has no crew!

I wasted many hours playing that game. Age of Empires looked like a minor skirmish compared to a game of Cossacks. I remember the key to surviving was to keep a few soldiers on guard over every mine and resource building, lest Cossacks run through your country and capture or blow up your resources.

Some pics.

Small part of my small army?

you can zoom in this new version

Cossacks always had great firing animations

The Austrians "attack" me with some priests, apperantly religious animosity is still strong even in the 18th century. And my swedes gun them down in cold blood.
