What is American Conquest?
GSC is creating an incredible real-time strategy game, which displays some of the best graphics and performance on computers. What is so special about this game?  Well, if you would take a look above at the screenshots section, you will find out. Other than amazing graphics, American Conquest stuns gamers with in-depth strategy; you are able to create massive armies, nearly 16,000 men, compared to the amazing 8,000 in Cossacks. 

Not only this, but commanding your army can be a task worth striving for; you are able to create complex formations, using a drummer, officer, and the new flag-bearer.  American Conquest finely mixes both RTS flavors: economy and military.  Both are equally important in this game.  Before you check out the list of features from GSC be sure to check out the other pages under ‘Features’:
