Review of the game Cossacks 3

The strategy of Cossacks 3 is the new (and the last at the moment) game of the Cossacks series, released in 2016 year. Outwardly it is very similar to Cossacks Again War. Moved from there a lot of things: the action takes place in the same 17-18 centuries, the game modes have not changed, the same winning strategy (the construction of a settlement with a strong economy, the creation of a powerful battle-worthy army).

The difference between the 3 part of the Cossacks from the old game

So, what is it different from other publications?

Beautiful modern graphics. The strategy of Cossacks 3 is built in the same way as first Cossacks, Conquest of America. However, in the third Cossacks every object on the map is perfectly detailed - you can even look at it close-up, zoom in or look at it from different angles. Thus, in Cossacks III for the first time appeared three-dimensional graphics.

Convenience for the beginner. The developers added a few minor improvements, which fixed bugs, because of which it was inconvenient to play.
For example, when it was necessary to build a mine, it was necessary to specifically select to search for and allocate 5 peasants, so that they built it and immediately went there.
Or a bug with a unit attack. When a detachment, for example, the musketeers goes on command "forward, killing all on the way," then instead of starting a fire from muskets, they go into hand-to-hand combat. After this, all the advantages of the detachment are only lost. And still, even if this unit and destroyed someone, then after that he ceases to go somewhere. It just costs everything.
Well, it also began to show your population in the upper left corner and the number of peasants engaged in the extraction of a particular resource. This was taken from Cossacks II.

Now you can explore the area, while almost not losing their units as before. The thing is that if you put them in the forest, it will be more difficult for the enemy to shoot them, because the detainee in the forest receives less damage from shooting. This is also taken, incidentally, from Cossacks 2.
Well, the relief now affects the outcome of the battle much less.

В multiplayer Cossacks 2017 year has a very interesting function - hire a mayor. In fact, it is free. What is the idea: having included it, the computer starts to manage your settlement itself - distributes the peasants by resources, advises which buildings to build, what improvements need to be made. I tried to play with her and without her. And in both cases I lost :). It did not work for me to benefit from this venture. Maybe you will get it :).

I also noticed that the speed of building units has decreased several times. Especially I felt it at the speed of building peasants. And for some reason I began to lose because my cover from pikemen and other melee soldiers quickly shoot. Maybe this computer has become stronger, maybe the balance has changed in the direction of the shooters. So I had to rework my tactics.

Constant updates. Developers constantly modify the game, adding new missions, campaigns, nations, units. Also fixed are bugs that were noticed by the players. And it's very convenient: just download updates via Steam, and you can play!

Space for modding. The developers did not leave the modders without attention, creating a SDK for the game (Soft Development Kit - tools for developing modifications). With a guide to creating your own fashion, you can see here.

Disadvantages of the 3 part of Cossacks

Requires a powerful computer. В отличие от Казаков Снова Война, которые идут практически любом компьютере, ноутбуке, нетбуке(!), для достижения оптимального FPS в новой игре Казаки потребуется очень производительное железо. Лично у меня на ноутбуке Lenovo IdeaPad Z580 2012 года (Intel Core i3 2.4 GHz, 4 GB ОЗУ, NVIDIA GeForce 630M) идет очень слабо, без жестких лагов тянет игру только 1 на 1. Ну еще у меня есть другой новый ноутбук, но со слабой встроенной видеокартой, на нем удавалось поиграть даже с 3 компьютерными соперниками, однако когда численность юнитов на экране приближается к 1000, то начинает уже все подвисать. Естественно, все это игралось на минимальном разрешении экрана, минимальных настройках игры. Но если у вас более-менее новый персональный компьютер, то скорее всего вам это нипочем.

Price. Although there were so many good things done, but personally I believe that such a game can not cost 949 rubles. Too high price only for the reanimated Cossacks. But if you follow the news on their site, page in VK, or on Steam, you can catch a discount of 50% -70% of the cost of the game.

Yes, GSC does not go well. The company closed in 2011 year, stopping the development of Stalker 2, and the last game - STALKER: Call of Pripyat was released in 2009 year. And after a long break, in May 2015, it was announced that the company had not closed, and was developing new Cossacks. Issued 3 part of the Cossacks was in September 2016 year. Therefore, so far, in this regard, Cossacks III lose to competitors. Although there was recently a New Year's discount, reaching 70% - the game could be bought for three hundred or more rubles.

Video review on Cossacks 3

This video review is devoted to the main innovations that are thrown to the player. The author of the video review has a long experience of playing in the Cossacks, so he constantly finds in the game the old features that he remembered after so many years of playing. He is not an avid player and evaluates the game from the amateur's point of view.


I can recommend the strategy of Cossacks 3 to the fans of the old game, who do not want to run the game with dancing with a tambourine. Well, it's better to buy at a discount, most likely they will be done often. Of course you can play and beginners, but to see that yes how, better download game Cossacks 3 with torrent - and save money, and look at the game.
