  • Summary: Despite the snazzy new name sported by this real-time stealth strategy game set in the Wild West, this is actually the third release in the Desperados series from German developer Spellbound.

  1. Positive: 2 out of 4

  1. Helldorado offers some good old challenge in a form of an puzzle game. Unfortunately the game runs in real time. In this case a turn based system would work much better. Altogether a nice piece of challenging puzzling, annoying even, at some points. If you aren't scared of the difficulty level, this is definitely your cup of whiskey. [July 2009]
  2. It's got the Western style down pat and though it's incredibly slow-paced it's well worth a bash for any tobacca-chewin' varmint. [July 2009, p.95]

    With a heavy focus on stealth and strategy, but mired in trial and error that takes hours to gain any particular progress, Helldorado is only for the hardcore strategy fan that has a massive reservoir or patience. For others, this is a game that you may want to pass over for an easier tactical experience.
  4. Excruciating difficulty makes this latest addition to the Desperados family one frustrating trip back to the Wild West.

    Nice game for relax. Yes, it is not high graphic improvement, but it is nice wild west game with nice west tematic. So, because of that I will give 9.

    Still nothing compared to the first title, 'Desperados 3' fixes many issues the 2. game had, and feels at least finished, and polished.

    Worst game I ever bought I want my money back. Too much stealth and not enough Wild West reality. Don't waste your money.
