I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment.
I joked in my review for the bizarre...
Cossacks is a historical real-time strategy based on events of XVI-XVIII centuries in Europe when nations and states were created and demolished, gold was turned to numerous armies, and neverending wars shed seas of blood. It was the time when new regulations were developed in armies, and commanders' mastery was polished to perfection. The new era began "with cannonade thunder and bullets' whine."
The game allows becoming aware of historical events' large scale. Thus, grandiose battles of up to 8000 units may be conducted on single or network game maps. The game contains much historical data, and the full version will include a spacious encyclopedia about wars, battles, nations, technologies, armies, and units having been used in Europe in XVI-XVIII centuries.
