Tom's Review: Although it visits the familiar historical terrain of Ensemble's Age of Empires, Cossacks plays on a whole different scale. Unfortunately, it's a scale less suited to real time strategy. It's the epic sweep of Creative Assembly's Shogun with just enough resource management to ruin it. Cossacks sprawls with so much detail and so many nuances that sooner or later it will run away without you (the ability to pause and give orders would have worked wonders here). But in those frantic scrambling moments before you're left behind in the dust and rubble, Cossacks has the all the sweet intensity of some of the best real time strategy games.
