    What better way to scale how much fun this game is then to say that without a doubt that the level of enjoyment that you get with Lead and Gold is nearly unrivaled.
  2. Cowboys, sixshooters and nice multiplayer action. It's hard not to like Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West. Save from some annoying spawn points, this is great multiplayer fun with charming graphics, a lot of content and many different game modes. A highly recommended download for everyone.
  3. The varied game types, excellent maps, straightforward game mechanics, and fun setting mean you shouldn't hesitate in picking this one up.
  4. You wanna feel like a cowboy? Well, Lead and Gold: Gangs of Wild West is a good shot. Its only weaknesses are the classes you can‘t change, and there aren‘t too many players online.

    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.

    Terrible pings, no servers and a tiny player base. [July 2010, p.58]

    Excellent game. The community is tight and the developers listen to what we have to say. Updates are frequent. Developers have said that Excellent game. The community is tight and the developers listen to what we have to say. Updates are frequent. Developers have said that DLC's will be released in the future bringing more classes, maps and game modes. Dedicated servers are being worked upon and seem to be ready soon. With that the lagg will be gone also. Expand

    Fun times are back with this small studio release. This is old school multiplayer fun at it's finest. The game is simple, intuitive, Fun times are back with this small studio release. This is old school multiplayer fun at it's finest. The game is simple, intuitive, easy to jump in, fast and beautiful. The maps are the best I've seen in a long time. I'll give it a 10 depite dedicated servers are still being developed. But with my 2MB connection I could host great matches with friends close to my location. Still for the low price the game is a steal, once dedis are out this will be a must for PC players specially. Expand

    Just got this game a few days ago. So far I have been enjoying it a lot. No complaints thus far. No different than TF2 just with a western theme IMO.

    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,andvery 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

    I do not have a good memory of this game, as the servers worked quite badly and there is no offline mode; almost no one played. Personally, II do not have a good memory of this game, as the servers worked quite badly and there is no offline mode; almost no one played. Personally, I prefer the online mode of games such as Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood. The idea was interesting, though. Expand
