Quoted from Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars Reviews:Check out these quotes from Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars reviews & previews
"Some undeniably strong and distinctive pieces of game design, tarnished by some elementary errors, such as the lack of a decent training program or real in-game help. The limited skirmish options are a depressing, and the Battle for Europe mode - while initially charming - fades with worrying speed into repetition. Technical and occasional control errors settle Cossack 2's fate."
"Elegant uniforms, marching in formation, and getting blown away by massed gunfire -- welcome to war in the 18th century!"
"Cossacks II isn't entirely without merit, but in the end it just comes a bit short as turn-based game, with underwhelming historical battles and lacks the rich RTS experience of the original. After a few hours, you might be left with the feeling Napoleon had on his retreat from Moscow -- so close, but in the end defeated."
"Cossacks II is an interesting game. It's certainly not as crazy as a game like Rome where you have to think and worry about so many things, but seems to have a depth of tactics to it that strategy gamers will appreciate, especially considering it's a period of history that doesn't often pop up in this genre."
"Cossacks 2 is a bit better than the original Cossacks and a substantial improvement over Alexander. At the very least, the time period is much more exciting and much easier for the general gaming general to relate to. The overall presentation level has been improved as well. Though there are definitely some rough edges here and there, this is a much more polished product than other games in the series."
