Cannon Fodder 3 is a tactical action game, which inherited the style and traditions of the original game. The war goes on and its scale is nearly the same as before. 500 conscripts are sent to meet their destiny. What awaits them? A general's stars or a bed of honor?

These 21st century soldiers are equipped much better than their 1994 predecessors. They have 8 types of machinery, suitable for land, surface and airborne operations, as well as 17 types of weapon from assault rifles to the nuclear bomb.

Skirmishes take place all around the world and even in space! You'll fight throughout the day and night, in hot and cold weather, in snow and rain. The enemy is skilled - there're terrorists from all over the world and they have cutting-edge technologies at their disposal: teleportation and various mechanized combat systems. Our heroes will face great challenges - artillery strikes, insuperable force fields, automated turrets, suicide soldiers and giant humanoid robots.

Your savvy will come in handy: your actions aren't limited to slaughter and destruction. You'll have to capture enemy vehicles and bases, save hostages and rescue convicts, hold the line and shoot back from the turrets, search for data discs and spare parts, repair broken robots and bypass minefields. The high command carefully watches your operation’s progress: missions can be aborted because of major offence; minor misbehavior will be reprimanded, and great achievements will be rewarded with medals and promotions. In the end, the very best soldiers will receive the greatest reward: they will return to home camp where warm army barracks, hot army food, soft army bunks and a tender drill sergeant await them. Until the next time.

  • 8 types of controllable machinery
  • 17 types of weaponry, including tactical nuclear strikes and carpet bombings
  • Battles with unique bosses
  • Combat progress leads to new ranks

Funny Game for in between, so much to say! We control 4 small Soldiers at The same time, avoid walking, but also in vehicles and shoot us through many Many opponents, collecting medikits, grenades, Upgrades ...-The Game just had 30 fps, most of it .. You get used to it, but the Performance is under all Sow. -What many see first is the first Charging Screen, which is actually almost 3 Minutes long and I thought first my Game would be smeoned, but after that none was longer than 15 seconds:) After 5 Missions, a Break can be taken, because this Game can and will become monotonous as one could play it at a time. Recommendation just for in between, but be really Fun ... Nope

I can't understand the Reviews that say this is not a Cannon Fodder. The Game principle has remained exactly the same (as it was on the Amiga at the Time), the Graphics are prettier and comic style. It was a lot of Fun for me Right away, because the Gameplay is just unique. The Control with Maus/Keyboard fits. There comes retro feeling. The only annoying thing is actually the ultra-long loading Times. Even if you install it on an SSD, it charges insulating. But I found a Fix by trying it out and wrote a Guide here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=517468131 This means that I no longer have big Loading Times. It goes scratch fatz!!! If it helps you guys too, I'd love to have a Comment. But £18.99-is too expensive. Buy it on Offer!!! So: Game is fun and just a more modern Cannon Fodder. ;-)

----GERMAN REÊ----To all of you first ... No Jools, Jops and Stoo. Too bad, though, not so tragic. Cannon Fodder, I remember once secretly playing it on my Brother's Amiga in my childhood. I would also like to mention here that You should not compare parts 1 & 2 with this Part here, otherwise you will probably be bitterly disappointed by Part 3. Now to the game, though, this is finally about a Review of Cannon Fodder 3. The gameplay principle is as simple as it is Ingenious, you Steer a Squad soldier (at best 4) through the Mission, chase houses in the Air, shoot Down Soldiers, collect Upgrades, Weapons and Grenades. This would actually explain the Game principle, the Control is good and I coped with it perfectly, Graphically the Game is certainly not Up to date but perfectly fine, Exploding Things are not Uncommon. In one or the other Mission, you can also drive vehicles or even fly a Helicopter and shoot everything out of the Air. One Criticism for me here is above all the very simple Degree of difficulty even on "Heavy," but it may also have been due to my Expectation of "Heavy." The Humour doesn't come up short here and there, especially the Intro has put a smile on my Face right. By and large, I can recommend it for in between. Let's Get to the Price, I have to admit €19am then are a little too much, I would recommend buying it on Offer for 50-75%, around €10p it is worth it. I only tested The Co-op mode briefly, it worked, but I can't say more about it. "Was never been so much fun!" TL: DR 7/10 + Gameplay + fun + graphics & Sound + Humor/Intro + Co-op-Price-charge time-difficulty level
