  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]
  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.

    A very competent class based shooter. It holds up well against the competition, and brings a style unique to the genre.
  4. In the end, I suppose one could make the argument that Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West would be a great buy at $9.99 and a better-than-average buy at the current $14.99 price point.
  5. Lead & Gold: Gangs of the Wild West is far from being equal-to or superior-than Valve's popular squad-based shooter. It will manage to get you by, especially for $15.
  6. With a diverse group of characters, game modes, and maps, it's a good choice for those who want something with some instant satisfaction.

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. Full Review »
