Cannon Fodder 3 Game Arrives on PC
Posted in games
After 17 years, Cannon Fodder is back! The new Cannon Fodder 3 game is a direct sequel to the 90's Amiga classic. This time, we're treated to true 3D graphics but still the same cute gameplay.
Those of us who grew up in the 90's will remember that Cannon Fodder was one of the best games for the Amiga. Cute graphics, simple but effective gameplay and a funny soundtrack all combined to make a superb game.
Cannon Fodder was originally created by Sensible Software - the masters of game creation at the time. You might remember their Sensible Soccer game, which is still played even today. We have to confess to still playing that one too! If you want to relive the old days then head over to our Amiga ROMS section and download Cannon Fodder. Cannon Fodder ROM
Whats new in Cannon Fodder 3
Forget that old jeep jump this game comes with 8 different controllable machinery. There are boats, planes, helicopters and even bosses. Judging by the gameplay videos, the tanks and helicopter fighting looks cool. Not sure about the heavy music though, sounds too much like they're trying to copy Red Alert and Frank Klepacki's master piece. More guns are something that the original was missing so that's going to be great to try.Other new features:
- 8 types of controllable machinery
- 17 types of weaponry, including tactical nuclear strikes and carpet bombings
- Achievement system
- Battles with unique bosses
- Combat progress leads to new ranks
- Special-purpose bonus items
- Day and night missions, weather effects
- Various locations: America, Asia, Russia, lunar and orbital bases
Take a look at this gameplay video and see some of the new guns and vehicles in action..

Is Cannon Fodder 3 any good?
We haven't had a chance to play Cannon Fodder 3 yet so we're not sure if it lives up to our expectations. It seems strange that there was no hype for the game and it wasn't even supposed to be released outside of Russia. Putting that aside, if you want to give the game a go for yourself then you'll need to head over to GamersGate and cough up £19. www.gamersgate.co.uk
