I'll have to pass Cossacks 2

I dl the demo, and played the demo. I dont like it one bit. There is no cossacks feeling at all. It plays like a totally different game. I wish GSC just updated the graphics in cossacks. Added "L" screen(large screen). And kept the original Cossacks gameplay.

Cossacks 2 plays nothing like cossacks.

I remember playing cossacks, building my own fortress. Not just building already preset. But the freedom to build my own walls. Outlay where I wanted my buildings inside the walls. And garrission troops, and defensive areas. Basically create my own fortress. Not just build a building with my phesents. And say that building is my fortress.

All GSC had to do was update the engine. Add some minor fixes, and improvments, and it would have been another awsome game.

But no, GSC has to put in some really complex moral system. Take out the ability for the player to customize his own defenses, and fortresses. And take the Cossacks feeling out of the whole game.

Thank you GSC for createing a totally different game. To me, C2 does not deserve to be called Cossacks 2.

My 2 cents,

If you pass you'll regret it.

Yes it's a whole new game, with diffrent parameters than Cossacks. And thank god for that. I agree that some things, like the pre-set buildings are a pain in the neck, but I hardly play singleplayer games at all in Cossacks II - I actually only play Battle For Europe, which I think is by and far the very best feature of the game. I don't know if BFE was in the demo but if it wasn't you need to try the full game before dismissing it.
BFE is like RISK, but you fight the battles real time, no micromanaging or building up, or rushing. This is what I always looked for in a game, and found it in cossacks II.

I hope you reconsider.
