  1. A great little shooter, and one that could well give Valve a run for its money. [June 2010, p.90]
  2. The debut title from developer Fatshark, risen from the ashes of now defunct developer Grin, is an intense third person multiplayer shooter. With exquisite level design, great character classes, top notch presentation and thoroughly entertaining team based gameplay this is an impressive debut indeed.
  3. If you look at the overall value of this package, it doesn't take long to see that Fatshark has stepped up with a winner. The developers set out to appeal to an array of genres and I think they'll eventually get a decent following because of it.
  4. Lead and Gold has the ground work and potential to be a game that people never forget about, but until the developers implement that characteristic that keeps players motivated, the interest will always be minimal.
  5. Lag and server issues. [July 2010, p.88]
  6. 70
    If you’re more of a casual multiplayer gamer like I am, then Lead and Gold is neat game. Just don’t expect to be playing it for months on end.
  7. Terrible pings, no servers and a tiny player base. [July 2010, p.58]

    Overall, it's very smooth, the gameplay is really fun and fast-paced and it does indeed have a Team Fotressy feel to it. It's is online multi-player only, though it does offer an online co-op option to play against bots with your friends. Lead and Gold is a very well made game that shows the Fat Shark devs have real potential. The real test will be how they support it being that it is online only. Fingers are firmly crossed. Expand

    Just got this on sale recently from Steam, I went in with fairly low expectations expecting the same old team based gameplay with western inspire Graphics. Wow I could not have been more wrong. The gameplay hooked me immediately and the classes are varied enough that you pick and choose what you are playing as with the ebb and flow of games. Of Particular enjoyment are the Robbery games which have 2 interesting phases to them. The gaphics, sound & music fit the bill perfectly and the maps are very well thought out and fun with lots of alternate routes and obvious choke points.

    Definitely worth checking out.

    This game is great, and I fail to see why the community is absent. When I got this title originally, it still had a community left, and it was an incredibly fun time! This is one of, if not the, best third person shooters I have ever played. Expand

    very interesting that the User Score is much higher than the master score. in my view I think this game is pretty good,fast paced,and delivered a good idea of a game. However, if the game designer try to make the achievements easier to get , I think this game deserves top score. Futhermore ,to our non-Europen or non-American players ,we really want low ping servers. Expand

    The only thing keeping this game down a bit, is the number of classes, which are too few. I think the gameplay is great, and the surrounding designs aren't exactly amateurly done. Also, some maps (game modes) can be a tad confusing and it is occasionally difficult to understand where to go. Expand

    Its a well made TF2 3rd person shooter wild west style, with interesting game modes.. the only thing bad about this game is it doesnt have a huge player base/servers

    but ive always been able to join a game ok. just not many to pick from.

    Worth every cent, if not more
