  • Summary: On his epic journey through 1870s USA and Mexico, John Cooper will have to take responsibility for mistakes that have been made in the past.

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.

    Mimimi Games delivers a stellar benchmark for the titles to come both in terms of gameplay cohesion and storytelling in the Far West. Brilliant map design, character synergies and a long-term support plan promise to keep you engaged for more than the initial 25 hours to completion. Make sure to check it out. Probably the RTS of 2020.

    Desperados III is the ultimate expression of a game genre that initiated in 1999 with Commandos, and it's an immediate blast to play.

    If you've played Shadow Tactics, the high quality of Desperados III will come to you as no surprise. This game checks off all the mandatory elements of the stealth tactics genre: lots of ways to complete a mission, an intriguing story (and less obvious than it seems initially), cool characters, and a difficulty level that motivates, but doesn't frustrate.

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

    Divertido, dinámico, un 10 la verdad, excelente.
    Tenemos varios personajes con diferentes características que para pasar los niveles necesitamos combinarlas, ninguno "tapa" las habilidades del otro. Es el comandos del siglo XXI pero mucho mejor y mas complejo. COMPRA RECOMENDADA SIN LUGAR A DUDAS!!!

    At first i want to say that i didn't played Desperados 1 and 2, so i might miss some things.
    But i played Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, and i think it is a solid 7.5/10.

    The gameplay is similar to Shadow Tacitcs, some might even say to much , but i'd say it changes a lot of characthers , making them more fun to play, since they are now easier to control, less cluncky than previous game which is a big plus and made me fall in love with the game.

    The graphics are good. They are well optimized, i never experienced any fps drops, even on my old pc, and they look really stylish, again , similar to Shadow Tactics.

    The story is , a tool. A tool for devs to put you in an unexpected or interesting situation. I don't really wanna spoil, let's just say that it is similar in structure to (again!) Shadow Tactics.

    So after reading all that, you might ask, why would I choose Desperados III, looks like it's really similar to Shadow Tactics, why choose this over another. Well, you see, Desperados III is just a big improvent over Shadow Tacitcs. If you like it , you will love Desperados.

    Though , it costs really much, so you might wanna wait for sale.

    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!
