À propos de ce jeu

"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.

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...

ENGLISH and Italian Review
Recensione Inglese ed ITALIANA

WARNING, if you run Windows Vista or newer you'll have to tweak the hell out of this game to make it work!

ATTENZIONE, se il tuo sistema operativo è più nuovo di XP dovrai fare un casino per far funzionare il gioco!


English:

Let's forget compatibility problems and talk about this game like we were still in 2001. It's a WONDERFUL game. Good story, great characters, great graphics, Far West Cowboy scenario, isometric visual, great gameplay, challenging parts.. A strategy game where if you don't think at what you're doing, you're dead, with no exeptions. You'll have to think on which character use where, how and when. Challenging and fun cowboy game. In the Far West. 10/10


Italiano:

Tralasciamo i problemi di compatibilità e parliamo di questo gioco come se fossimo ancora nel 2001. E' un gioco STUPENDO. Storia decente, personaggi da urlo, ottima grafica, ambientazione nel Far West, visuale isometrica, ottimo gameplay, e pezzi difficili. Un gioco di strategia in cui se non ragioni sei morto, senza scappatoie. Dovrai ragionare su quale personaggio usare dove ed in quale momento per andare avanti. Gioco divertente ed impegnativo. Nel far West. 10/10

One of the best games of all time, in my opinion. It's a shame more people didn't know about it at the time. I recommend anyone give this game a try. It's certainly a game I've been re-visting for years, and a game I'll certainly continue to play for years to come.

Bought the original on disc, bought it on GoG, and now I've finally also bought it on Steam. The extra cost is just a small price to pay for a game that I've always enjoyed so much.

Unfortunately it doesn't always run well on Windows 7 or 8 - but if you visit the Steam forums page for the game you'll find two pinned topics detailing a simple fix.

I have so many great memories of this game from when I was young, so when I saw that this was on steam I just had to buy it!
Sure, it has a few bugs and can be a little clunky at times but once you get these things sorted it can be great fun!
Still as good as I remember it, and glad to be able to play this just like old times :)

One of the first PC games I played. Found its demo version in a cereal box and since its a love story.

- Mindblowing STR/RPG/Action/Stealth concept
- Great 2D
- World design and western atmosphere greatly rendered
- 25 missions
- Challenging AI
- Pretty good voice acting

It surely surpasses many actual games, in its creativity, difficulty, and generosity.

12/10 on my top 10 games of all time

Aside the compability problems, that can be solved with a little tweaking, the game is great. Simple as that.

The environments are well designed, the graphics are beauty, the voice acting is good, the music feels right, the history is nice, the interface is easy to use and the levels have the right amount of challenge to make you explore different ways of playing.

This game has everything it takes to be awesome.

I think it gets a little repetitive, but not to the point of boring.

One of the best strategy games I ever played.

8/10

I love the game but the technical problems make it currently unplayable for me. Too bad, I can't recommend it to anyone as long as there is no guarantee that the game actually works stable

If you are running windows 8.1 64 bit then the frame rate is so bad that you cant even play the game. I've tried many things to improve the frame rate but no success. AMD 3.9 ghz 12 gig ram nvidia gtx650 1 gig on windows 8.1 64 bit

DON'T BUY IT if you have a Windows 8. It's simply not working at all; This is simply unplayable.

Franchement, quand un jeu sort sur steam on s'attend à ce qu'il sois revu. Si c'est juste pour faire du fric je ne vous dit pas bravo, et comptez sur moi pour ne plus rien acheter sans faire de grande vérification à l'avenir. Une promotion " jeu à un euro "c'est bien, mais si le jeu en question ne fonctionne pas, ce n'est pas la peine. C'est fort dommage pour un jeu mythique des années 2000. Jouer en résolution médiocre ne me dérange pas, meme si ça coupe mon 20 pouces en deux, mais sérieusement la souris qui rame comme pas permis, et voir John mettre 1 minutes pour faire un déplacement ( sans rire ) ça m'enerve plutôt, et je suis gentil.
Ma jeunesse ne vous fécilite absolument pas. Et ne me parler même pas d'une méthode pour fixer ça moi même, quand on achete une maison et qu'elle est mal faite, on ne dit pas au client de refaire les murs lui même, on se prend par la main et on patch le truc. Patch que je ne suis pas seul à demander. Bref, Windows 8 passer votre chemin.

Je recommande fortement ce jeu, pour diverse raison :

La première est la stratégie, bien poussé et la difficulté augmente à chaque mission.
La deuxième sont ces graphismes vraiment bon pour un jeu datant d'un peu plus de 10 ans.
La troisième, une vue aérienne et ces environnements remarquablement bien retranscrit en jeu.
La quatrième, pour son très bon gameplay.
La cinquième, prix Steam vraiment bas, n'hésité plus

This game is epic but DON'T BUY IT if you have WIN 7/8 x64. The game uses directdraw which dissapeared when Direct X 8 came out. Unless you have an old PC running windows XP I don't reccomend you to buy it. Apart from the compatibility issue the game it's simply epic, very long story line and hard missions that will keep you busy for a long long time. Have fun.

This game is from my childhood, and I loved it back then, and I still do. However with latest hardware, and operating systems, it has rendered this epic game completely unplayable (laggy mouse, low resolution, and crash to desktop every 5 minutes). This should have been re-worked, and re-patched, before being allowed on to Steam.

As mentioned on even the positive reviews, Desperados does not work on Windows 7/8. At least, not very well. I have reported this to the developers, but my thread(s) were completely ignored, and we have never received any acknowledgement that these compatibility issues even exist, even though they clearly DO. My current issue is a complete freeze up of the game after 5 minutes, followed either by a crash to desktop, or a BSOD.

It's a BRILLIANT game, but you will likely be put off of it by the performance issues before you have a chance to appreciate it's brilliance. Save your money, and just pray that the developers fix the issues with W7 and W8.

Update 1st Dec 2013: There is a "directdraw" fix available in the forums which fixes mouse lag, however the crashing is still ongoing. It seems that patching has stopped for this game already.

Update 25th Feb 2014: There appears to be an unofficial work around for the crashing issues available in a stickied forum thread. This is not developer supplied, and edging on the side of caution, I would prefer NOT to download random ".dll" files off of the internet - especially those hosted on rapidshare. I am unlikely to ever try the fix for myself, and the "Negative" review stands, as long as the developers fail to patch these aweful compatibility problems.

This is not a game. This is THE game. I've played at least 100 hours at this game when I was younger, and I'm happy to know it's on Steam now. This is on my personal top 3 of the best games I ever played. Good story, good gameplay with a mix of action and stealth, good atmosphere, good locations and the characters have a nice voices (In Italian).

Btw, if you have Windows 7/8, I suggest to DON'T BUY this game, because it doesn't run pretty well. Most users say the game is unplayable for who have the newest operating systems, because there's a drop of FPS + laggy mouse and multiple crashes during the game, but there are some ways for fix some of these problems if you read the threads in the community hub. I use Windows XP and the game works fine except for some crashes (2 in 16 hours of gameplay, for me).

You should play it.

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.
