  • Summary: Desperados 2 is the sequel of the successful wild west title "Desperados – Wanted Dead or Alive".
    The gameplay is based on its predecessor but with brand new tactical possibilities in a beautiful 3D environment. The player is able to switch from an isometric view to a third person view
    whenever he wants, for example for duels, brawls and shoot-outs. There will be a great variety of setting for example dusty canyons, ghost towns, Indian villages and forts creating a breathtaking atmosphere. Take on the role of up to 6 heroes including the famous bounty hunter John Cooper and experience in a thrilling story with surprising turns. [Spellbound] Expand

  1. Desperados 2: Cooper’s Revenge continues on its predecessor’s path. The gameplay, graphics and characters are great. Add to that the Morricone-like music and you have a Wild West addict’s dream. Still, the game falls short of masterpiece status, because of too much frustrating sneaking, some graphics bugs and the occasionally stupid AI. [June 2006]
  2. A genuine evolution in a series packed with charm and character. Yee Haw! [July 2006, p.67]
  3. If D2 came with a level-skip cheat printed in the manual, it would be a lot easier to recommend. [July 2006, p.70]
  4. If someone will ever be able to re-establish this kind of games, to make them deliver the kind of fun I’ve had with all the games that preceded Desperados 2, then I’ll clearly admit it and promote it. Until then, all I can tell you is to stay away from this game.
  5. Despite some attractive visuals, Desperados 2 is burdened by lame artificial intelligence and some very frustrating missions.
  6. Confusing, often nonsensical execution, and a bit slow on the draw. [June 2006, p.91]
  7. 40
    Without a sound tactical game, Desperados 2 is only fun so long as you enjoy trying to guess what the hell the developers were thinking.

    The game is a step backwards to the original game. The 'action-mode' isn't fun and the AI isn't how it has to be... Sometimes an enemy gets shot and an other doesn't notices and the other times my character hides in a corner and the enemies find him without they have seen of heard anything. Expand

    Not played the first one but this as a concept was awesome. Being able to switch between multiple characters with different abilities at the same time was so beast at the time. The problem was that the action wasn't too convincing. Expand

    Stay away from this one. Even though the presentation is fine does the god-awful AI and boring mission design prevent you from having any kind of fun in this game. I can forgive a lot of things in video games but the AI in this game is so down right ridiculous that any kind of stealth and action is ruined. Expand
