Cossacks 3 is a RTS (real-time strategy) that was released in 2016. It is a remake of original Cossacks 1. Since 2016 developers created a number of purchasable DLC, in which they added new missions, campaigns, nations, and battle units. The last DLC is called Cossacks 3: Golden Age. Ukrainian studio GSC Game World has also added a multiplayer to it. Players can download Cossacks 3 for Windows, Linux, and MacOS.

Graphics 5/5

Comparing to the first part of this game, graphics in Cossacks 3 look more beautiful. Shadows and shaders are well detailed. All the buildings got redesigned, developers have also added an updated animation to windmills and other building. The building process has also improved and became more detailed.

All of the units look more realistic than before. Their movement animation is much better. Developers have also focused on the small details, for example, they added a smoke, that comes from a barrel after a shot, waving flags on buildings, etc. Battles look more gripping and aggressive.

If you feel uncomfortable or your computer starts lagging, you can always change the graphics options in the game settings. You can select a level of anti-aliasing, shadows, choose shaders and so on.

Gameplay 4/5

In Cossacks 3 the main goal is to create and eventually reinforce your kingdom. A player has to recruit various units, such as cavalry, infantry, artillery, and fight against other units to destroy the enemy kingdom. Thanks to diverse terrain, a great number of tactical movements has opened to you.

You can play in multiplayer with seven players. Landscape generator can create maps that will look any way you wish. A player can also make different missions. Moreover, there is an opportunity for you to add your buildings, units, etc. Gamers can put a team together and play against artificial intelligence.

Developers have also created a large number of DLC. In each of them, they have added different missions, new units, nations, climate, and, of course, a couple of campaigns. It will surely take some of your time to explore everything.

Controls 4/5

Controls here are the same as in other RT strategies. For the RTS fans, it won't be hard to adjust to these controls. However, it may be complicated for new players. In that case, developers added some tips to the game, so now new players have to stick to them and practice more.

Replay Value 5/5

Cossacks 3 is a great game to replay it. You can discover new tactics, build your base in a different way, explore the map and so on. Since developers added a number of DLC, it makes it more interesting to replay the game over and over again. But it won't be easy to finish it even for the first time.

Conclusion

We hope that the Cossacks 3 review helped you to understand the main goal of the game. Cossacks 3 is a RTS with a great number of tactical movements, fascinating graphics, and purchasable content. In the game, player have to create his own kingdom and fight against others.
