Cossacks 3 Released!

Currently viewing this thread:

I hope bodies and mashed up bits of terrain from cannon shot linger for a while in game. Previous cossacks games had the trend of the dissapearing dead act which all the bodies would vanish almost instantly. Would love to see abit of carnage.

Animations look really painfully janky, hope they fix them. I reckon even I could do better than that.

Do it then, boasty. Make your own game if you're so good. Step up or sit down. You won't. I bet u wont innit ma8 keep talkin **** these devs are infallible ur mods **** worst scam since lieraigle literally would pay 2 not play
 
They look a little over-weighted and cartoonish at times, which is actually consistent with the vibrant and simple textures. The whole game has a kind of mobile-and-tablet flavour going on, which, along with the ridiculously small scale of everything, turns me off.
 
Even the logo at the opening looks Game of Warish. It seems like they were trying to be nostalgic with their animations and just wound up making them look awful.

Nothing on the site; I`ll browse through the forums to see if there is any information that they haven't posted yet.

Looking at their media stuff this seems to have a bit of a case lot of the Stronghold 3 syndrome. It really doesn't look good at all. :???:
 
Each video they add just adds illumination to how much of a re-modeled/textured cossacks 1 it is. It's rather annoying, cosidering the nice shooting mechanics in Cossacks 2 & American Conquest.
 
I watched the diplexheated video, it looks just like cossacks 1 with 3d soldiers. The cannons are unmanned, attacking musket battalions turn into disorganised blobs and are put at an immediate disadvantage under the stationary defender, and cavalry just ploughs through infantry like crazy.

The combat really doesnt look that good to be honest and is just as rigid and bizzare as it was in the first game, which is annoying considering how much they changed in cossacks 2.

Just tried it as Ukraine, on my first try I didn't notice anything functionally different from the original game except for new campaigns.

Exact same units, upgrades, etc.

Kinda lame.

Haha, I guess that's cool..

What I don't understand is why they updated all the hard parts (graphics, 3d) but didn't bother to modify the combat with enhancements that were present in American Conquest and Cossacks 2.  :???:

They should have redone Cossacks 2, it's a much better game in my opinion.

Also, judging from the videos, zoom distance is still too close for bigger battles, hopefully there's mod that fix that, IIRC the original had them.
