Critic Reviews for Cossacks 3

A remake that proves that old games can still be fun even with some minor hiccups due its age. Fun, cheap and beautiful RTS on the likes of Age of Empires.

Cossacks 3 isn't just the remake of an old game, it is an old game all by itself. And proudly so. While long-time supporters of the series will be delighted to see the classic Cossacks gameplay making a return, most strategy fans will find the unfriendly interface and the clunky mechanics quite hard to digest.

Majestic foundation quickly devolves into a human meat grinder, and not in a good way

Poor AI and terribly structured campaign makes us believe that we would be better off only with fond memories of previous Cossacks titles.

There’s an inescapable feeling that in a sea of retro titles and remakes the team that made this game felt compelled to offer such an experience to new players, while drawing on the nostalgic memories of the veterans. Compared to what today’s RTS games have to offer, especially when it comes to polish and production, Cossacks 3 feel at the level of browser-based strategy games.

Cossacks 3 is a remake that captures the essence of the original Cossacks but is dragged down by a handful of issues. At the end of the day, Cossacks 3 captures the charm of the original and will definitely tug at some nostalgia strings. If the issues present in this build transfer over to the full release, the gameplay experience will be marred at times.

Cossacks 3 is a faithful remake of the original game, and strategy fans looking for an old school RTS will enjoy it enormously. Sadly, the game’s AI isn’t as good as one would expect, and massive battles lead to performance issues, even on systems that exceed the game’s recommended system requirements.

Cossacks 3 won't convince any new players about merits of RTS games, but everyone else will be greatly entertained. Doubly so if you're a fan of the series.
