  1. Swedish western shootout works like a charm. The game encourages to work together and the fast-paced action is sure to give thrills. Lack of maps is the main concern, but this is easily repaired with DLC, which is hopefully on the way. [June 2010]

    A very competent class based shooter. It holds up well against the competition, and brings a style unique to the genre.
  3. With a diverse group of characters, game modes, and maps, it's a good choice for those who want something with some instant satisfaction.
  4. 70
    It won't replace scheduled sessions with Team Fortess 2 -- nor is it as good -- but Lead and Gold is extremely fun and has an exceptional amount of potential if Fatshark is willing to fix some of its more glaring issues.
  5. Lead and Gold's straight-shooting multiplayer action is good fun, despite a few drawbacks that tarnish its appeal.
  6. 65
    Annoying lag. [Issue#193, p.103]
  7. There are simply too many bugs in the game, stuff that really shouldn't have gotten past the game's testing, it's absolutely no fun to suffer random system freezes and dropped hosts.

    A good downloadable game that is essentially a Red Dead Redemption Multiplayer clone. The gameplay is good, have not had any glitches or problems connecting. My first gripe is the fact there are only 4 options for loadouts and no way to customize them. Another is the fact there are only 5 maps. Nothing great, but ok. Expand
