On his quest for redemption, Cooper joins forces with the runaway bride Kate O'Hara, shady Arthur "Doc" McCoy, the giant trapper Hector and a mysterious lady from New Orleans. They make their way from the mountains of Colorado to the heart of Louisiana, then finally to New Mexico, right back into Cooper's past.

    You take control of this ragtag band becoming a highly functional group of unlikely heroes and heroines. The leader of his team is Cooper, drifter and gunslinger, who can kill quietly with a knife or take out multiple foes with his revolvers. Strongman Hector carries a giant beartrap and can slay the toughest opponents with his trusty axe. Cold-blooded bounty hunter McCoy likes to be methodical, using lures, knockout gas, poison syringes and a custom long-range pistol. Kate can fool almost any man with the right outfit and kill discretely with her hidden gun.

    Combine your specialists to overcome tough challenges in many different ways. Plan your moves wisely and execute them perfectly in real-time to sneak past your enemies while remaining undetected.

    Tactical spaghetti western. Filminess, gameplay and atmosphere interwoven in a unique combination. Great musical accompaniment is just the icing on the cake. [Issue#304]

    Desperados III feels natural as a new entry in the series while being an innovative and really good actual game. A game that, without much noise, results in one of the best recent stealth experiences.

    The return of Desperados should be maybe more accurately called “The return of Shadow Tactics”, but that’s not a bad thing at all. Desperados 3 hasn’t lost any of the sneaky charm of the previous game and it adds new stuff to do, too.

    After Shadow Tactics, Mimimi Games gets another big hit in the real-time tactics genre with Desperados III.

    A proper sequel to the original Desperados, and a tried-and-true tactical puzzle from Mimimi, the new masters of the genre.

    Desperados III is a great stealth tactic game with great graphics, music, voice acting, characters and story but can feel like a rehash of previous games made by the same developers.

    Desperados III won't be the glorious return of the franchise, but it's certainly a great game for the fans of this peculiar subgenre.

    One of the best strategy games in recent years and easily the best western themed game from my opinion (even compared to red dead).

    I've played the classic, not the second one.
    I can say that is a very nice game. Strategy has been widely explored. Everything really works.

    I can say that is a very nice game. Strategy has been widely explored. Everything really works.
    In my opinion, the only thing what is missing here is about aesthetics. Characters don't open mouth to speak; they don't even have face during cut-scenes.
    Story on the game is shallow and simples.
    BUT I'm not a fan of games with good stories as I already have read Shakespeare and Dostoevsky.
    THE GAME IS AWESOME. Have fun!

Gotta say tho, that the price is a bit steep considering the length, so one point off for that. Still a very, very good and captivating game - I wish there was more like that." -Turtolia123321 Expand
