Acerca de este juego

"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...

Desperados - Wanted Dead or Alive:
Un juego ETR enmarcado dentro de la Estrategia - Táctica fundada por Commandos, con vista isométrica y una ambientación de western (comúnmente conocido como el Commandos del oeste) una verdadera joya de los clásicos y aunque es un título muy querido por los puristas en el género, lastimosamente no es tan conocido como merece serlo.

Si bien se nota que en el estudio de Spellbound el 3d no era su fuerte y esto salta fácilmente a la vista con las cinemáticas, que han envejecido bastante mal, puede pasarse por alto teniendo en cuenta la excelente calidad artística que tiene ingame, en cuanto a los mapeado en sprites que resaltan precisamente por ser ricos en detalle y su genialidad de diseño, una banda sonora que acompaña sin quiebre de forma continua los momentos de tensión , sus personajes que resultan creíbles, carismáticos y con gran personalidad, una historia que si bien no es nada del otro mundo e incluso puede recurrir por momentos a clichés, resulta entretenida y con un doblaje más que aceptable para la época, con alguna que otra voz mal interpretada al ser españoles imitando acentos mexicanos, pero por lo general es decente.

La jugabilidad es sin duda el punto fuerte de este título, siendo esta difícil de por sí, pero dando muchas posibilidades para el jugador, una IA increíblemente avanzada y hace de cada escenario resulte en una situación compleja de la cual es necesario parase a pensar en un plan para superarla, su jugabilidad esta tan pulida que realmente supera el nivel de exigencia que había impuesto la saga de Commandos ( en mi opinión).

Lo único que resulta realmente lamentable es que al ser un juego bastante antiguo, genera una gran cantidad de problemas de compatibilidad al ejecutarlo en Windows 7 y 8, aunque existen parches que solucionan esto, dados por la comunidad, no hay una solución oficial aun, e incluso con estos errores no puedo evitar recomendar lo suficiente esta maravilla, eso sí, hay que ser muy paciente con este juego, de lo contrario terminaran odiándolo.

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

Works perfectly well, just use the performance fix from the sticky in the steam forum section of this game.

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 :)
