Cossacks 2 Anthology for Mac

Yes, finally! The long requested Cossacks 2 Anthology for Mac from GOG.com is now available in the Porting Kit database split in 2 game installs: Cossacks 2 – Napoleonic Wars and Cossacks 2 – Battle for Europe. Both game works very nice, although it is required to do a one time action (deselect the “videos” in the in-game settings) before starting your first game. I played a few hours without any issues. It’s a really addictive game.

Game description Cossacks 2 Anthology for Mac:
In Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars, lead your 19th century army to glory in this much-anticipated sequel to the internationally acclaimed Cossacks: European Wars. Whether fighting as Napoleon’s highly disciplined “Grande Armée”, the tenacious Russians and their Cossack horseback warriors, the Austrians, Britons, Prussians, or Egyptians, the challenges will be daunting as you master weapons and tactics during a time that redefined modern warfare.
