Informace o hře

"Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive" is the first strategy game ever to combine a movie-based and story-driven atmosphere of an adventure game with the intellectual challenge of a real time tactic game.

In this western-style title, discover a game of strategy and tactics played out in exceptional real time. You're in charge of a team of 6 mercenaries and must find a way to complete your missions, be it infiltrating an enemy fortress, saving a team member or escaping an ambush... Combine the different skills of your 6 heroes to lead them to victory.

The Story

El Paso, a typical Wild West town in the southwestern United States near the Mexican border. It is the year 1881. For the last few months, the trains belonging to the famous railroad company, Twinnings & Co have been the target of a whole series of hold-ups and ambushes. The management of the company has decided enough is enough and they have to put an end to the raids. It has offered a reward of $15,000 for anyone who captures the leader of the gang responsible.


But no one in and around El Paso has the courage to take on the might of the bandidos, so the outlaws just keep on robbing train after train. Even the local Marshal is keeping well out of it.

It’s only when a stranger rides into town that things start to change. Bounty hunter John Cooper pays a visit to the local Twinnings & Co manager offering to end the railroad company’s problems once and for all. He gathers together a gang of his old partners and declares war on the bandidos. But during his pursuit, which will take him through half of the southwestern United States, Cooper soon discovers that on this mission nothing is quite what it seems...

WARNING! The game uses DirectDraw technology. That means that if you run anything newer then Windows XP you will encouter problems with this game. I have Windows 7 x64 and managed to bring the game to mostly playable level (the game slows for a second down everytime I change a character or choose a skill to use.

That said the game itself is quite excellent. The artstyle still looks just fine even though it is an old game. The 6 characters you will play as have variad skills, which you can use in creative way. There are no easy or scripted way through enemis and you will have to make your own way using tools given to you. The game is hard and you will have to use quicksave a lot on your first playthrough. Still, it is a great game in a long forgotten genre of games. It was fun back in 2001 and hold up really well to this day.

I don't understand how you can not recommend a game only because it doesn't work on a crappy OS. Find a solution or get a drive with a compatible OS.

"An Awesome old school adventure"

I played this game back when it first released on a PC bigger then a fridge :P and I instantly loved it, many evenings I'd spend replaying levels setting myself challenges to complete, a lot of happy memories with this game. So when I saw it on steam I snapped it up straight away and let me tell you... It has not disappointed. I've replayed a lot of games from my childhood and let's just say those happy memories should have stayed just that.. Memories.. But this game? This game kept the same feelings I had back when I first played this.

So either for a nostalgia trip, or just a fun way to spend a few hours, I highly recommend this game! 10/10

This game is so awesome :) its the third time I've completed it (first on steam), and I've forgotten how good it is.
Great story, heroes, Npc's, level design and abilities.
Works quite fine on Windows 7, but sometimes it crashes, seem to be random, and not once did it crash twice on the same place.
So my advice is save at least every 20 min.

+ hranie za rozne postavy
+ commandos na divokom zapade
+ tymova spolupraca
+ rozmanite lokacie ktore vas ocaria
+ desiatky hodin hrania
+ dlzka, pribeh , filmovost, soundtrack, atmosfera westernu ze by sa dala krajat
+ hra chyti a nepusti
+ AI ktora je dost vychcana a sikovna (uvediem priklad - zabijete nepriatela a odvleciete ho, no jeho kolega si vsimne ze nejak dlho nechodi tak sa ho vybere hladat a moze vyvolat poplach aby boli straze viac opatrne)
+ taktizovanie a nutnost pouzivat mozog, pokus omyl ,quicksave quickload :D lebo obtiaznost je sice vyvazena, po tazsej misii moze prist lahsia ,ale pri tych tazsich sa zapotite

- ziadne minusy by som tomu ani nedaval, neviem co ,nemam co ,ta hra nema bugy nema ziadny problem na tu dobu dokonala hra, jedine co mozem vytknut je, ze AI nepriatelov mozete vyuzit aj vo svoj prospech - priklad - Mate zapareny mozog a neviete ako dalej? staci ist niekde za roh budovy napriklad ,vystrelit a pockat ,po jednom vam tam budu nabiehat, takto vykosite peknu cast mapky :)

Probably the best in a genre. I loved it when it came out and loved it now after buying and replaying it on steam. Graphics still looks very good, sharp and clear. Controls are bit clunky at times but it doesn't break the game. The worst thing is that the game crashes sometimes. Had maybe 5 crashes in whole walkthrough. You can use different characters for different aproach doing the misson. It's really hard, especially some levels, i don't know how i completed it without any walkthroughs back then, i coudn't do this now :)
Nothing to tell more - just buy it, it's worth it :)

A real gem from the Germany-based Spellbound from 2001! It plays exactly like the Commandos series except this time we find ourselves in the Wild West! You can control 6 characters throughout the 25 missions the game offers. Some are pretty hard (again, a similarity with Commandos) and quite long. The characters of course are not present in all missions - the game gives you a different variety all the time.

This was one of my favourite games more than 10 years ago! The game still looks decent as the levels are quite detailed and I'm sure there are a lot of people who can appreciate 2D graphics these days. If you liked Commandos and instead of replaying it you want something new feel free to pick this one up. It's only 1,24 EUR at the moment.

Trust me, this is an amazing strategy game with wild west scenarios, interesting characters and smooth gameplay. It's so much fun, but it's unplayable on a Windows 8 system. If you have the same OS, find the CD somewhere at some thrift shop. It'll be a much more pleasant experience.

(worked on windows 7 for me, but still tends to crash quite a bit)

The first time I came across this game was somewhere around 2001. I got a copy of the demo on CD from a cereal box. I was instantly hooked on the game although it was very challenging. Sometime after that a friend of mine had received the full version of the game. We spent countless hours with the darn thing and we couldn't get past level four. But at that time, fooling around with the game was enough for me, so we started over many times and took turns playing. It wasn't about victory at all.

And now, more than ten years after the first glimpse, the game has landed on Steam, and I am eager to buy it. I got the game and I was instantly fulfilled with memories from the past. This is such a great game, there is no other like it. Commandos 2 and Robin Hood are close relatives, but there's something very special about this piece of art. The game features absolutely gorgeous graphics even with today's standards and the voice acting sounds more than professional.

If there's one thing they could have altered with the re-released version, it's the aspect ratio. There is no native widescreen support for the game, so you're stuck with 4:3 ratio. This however, isn't as big of a problem as one could think. Since it's an isometric game the gameplay doesn't look too bad at all even though it's stretched out. But just a fair warning...

Still fun and classic game with engaging storyline, interesting cast of characters, and a variety of fun and exciting missions.

A classic that still plays well in today's standard.

This game is awesome and a real classic which, however, does not work properly on pretty much any modern PC. Hence I can't recommend anyone to get it really, as epic as it is. The risk is high that you won't be able to play this game, based on what I've read. I am personally having random crashes on Windows 7 64 bit. It's annoying but the game is still playable, and I know I am lucky to be able to say that.

It is quite obvious by now that this game was released on Steam just so the publisher can make some quick money, with no real intention of making the game work properly. And that is shameful.

I am running this on Windows 7 Pro 64bit. It works just as I remember back in 2001 when I first bought it! Many of you will have seen lots of comments and discussions about how this Steam version doesn't work well on newer versions of windows, including Windows 7 64bit. I read everything looking for the fixes, but it in the end Desperados worked perfectly without any patches or modifications. I'm guessing the developers cleaned up this release over the last 3-4 months so credit to them.

If you haven't played Desperados before, it is essentially Commandos 2 but set in the wild west with hilarious cliches to the max! Very fun, lots of character, beautiful artwork (although it has obviously aged quite a bit), excellent story, and lots of tactical variety. There are many ways of getting through each level, and the difficulty scales up nicely.

Bargain at a fiver.

Wild west themed, top down, isometric view, commandos style action game. In Desperados you control group of characters with their own strengths, abilities and uses. Game has rather enjoyable art style, with great, detailed environments. Characters have different abilities, weapons, items they can use to accomplish mission goals. Most of the time you have to use multiple characters to complete mission. There is a stealth element in this game, and in most missions you can complete it by silently knocking out, killing enemies, sneaking around undetected. Or you can raise hell and shoot everything that moves, but doing that you have low chances of survival. Game has some humor here and there, voice acting is decent. Game may not work on newer computers, running windows 7 and 8. Other than that it's fun game. If you enjoyed Commandos series, then you might like this.
