Bu Oyun Hakkında

"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...

Key Features

WIN 7/8/10 GAME FIX: https://steamcommunity.com/app/260730/discussions/0/540737262306815107/

A great game from my childhood. I agree with many of the reviews on here; a wonderful game which doesn't work for Windows 7/8/10. But there is a fix for it, and it contains trustworthy downloads. I followed these steps and now the game works perfectly. See the link for instructions.

This game is brilliant. I have spent countless hours in my childhood playing this. Finished it about 15 times and know all the dialogues by heart.

To fix the problems with windows 7 read this, it works (and it's not the developers fault).
https://steamcommunity.com/app/260730/discussions/0/540737262306815107

Pros
The soundtrack, storytelling, environments, characters, mission multitude, unique feeling to every map, just about everything

Cons
Without the guide you will never figure out how to make this work and the controls are a little wonky im comparison to today's games.

tl;dr:
All in all this game is 10/10. You seriously cannot afford to miss out on this.

Excelente jogo. Mas precisa que um bug seja corrigido para que ele rode bem no Windows 8.1 / 10. Precisamos que a produtora faça essa correção.

O jogo fica muito lento nessas versãoes do Windows. Para vocês terem uma idéia, se rodar esse jogo pelo Wine do Linux, ele roda muito melhor, eu diria que de forma natural, do que se rodarmos ele no Windows 8 e 10.

WARNING! This game is not compatible with Windows 10. No matter what instructions you get to try to fix the issue it will still crash. If you want to risk it, that is up to you. I am now having to do a complete system restore. Even CTRL/ALT/DELETE would not allow me to close it so I had to shut the computer down manually. (DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK)

Easily one of the best games ever made.

Amazing gameplay, different ways to complete levels. Are you into making noise with guns and killing a bunch of enemies at a time? Or you prefer sneaky one by one knife kill? Or maybe you want to poison your enemy, hide and watch as they kill one another? What about big boom with a dynamite? Your choice.

I completed this game at least 5 times already, and yet, every time I enjoy playing it and play each lvl differently, using different players and combinations. You can really finish a map in 10-15 minutes or 1 hr, all depends on your choice and actions. The farther you go into the game, the more fun maps are.

I will never delete this game from my pc. I know that each time, after completing the game, I will return and start all over again. Game control is simple and game price is just silly. You have nothing to lose.

One of my favourite games ever is a really good strategic game similar to commandos, the games has really good mechanics and the graphics still look good the only downside with the game is that to make it work on moder So you will have to try diferent configurations using 3th party software.

Mission 13: I give up, this is just too frustrating. Horrible ♥♥♥♥ing game, almost nothing works as it should (and everything happens slooooooooooooooooowly), the game mechanics are downright broken. No wonder Spellbound went under.

There's only one thing I don't understand: the good reviews at the time. Has any reviewer even completed half of this game? The first few levels are charming but then the flaws start coming out more and more to the point where the whole thing becomes a barely playable mess.

Let's take the supposedly 3D environment that would let you take advantage of the height differences. The idea is great, hell, it's even more realistic than what you have in Commandos... but the developers just forgot to program it 75% of the time. You're crouched behind a small wall? Doesn't matter if it's not programmed to make you hidden, guards will just spot you even on a night mission.

To make things worse the game is just full of great ideas that simply doesn't work as they should. It was awesome to see that Sam can take control of gatling guns... then I got the chance to use one in mission 9 to find out that it's absolutely useless.

Dynamite? Have fun spending half a minute with getting it to the right position with the trajectory display before you throw it instead of you know, having it work in the obvious way (you click on a spot that's in range, you throw it there and it explodes but nope, that would have been too "casual" I guess, too logical for a game like this).

Sleeping gas? Again the idea is great but the Doc can't throw it above a ♥♥♥♥ing wall. The first time I managed to make myself go to sleep instead of an enemy I laughed by the 5th time I was furious. The worst part of this is that it just makes reactive gameplay non-functional, you can't just lure a group of enemies to a corner and throw some sleeping gas at them because it's just too slow and the trajectory is too random (sometimes you can throw it well enough, sometimes you can't and the 2D graphics makes it hard to judge without waiting for the trajectory to be displayed - why isn't that instant btw?). Also it's sleeping gas you know: a guard shouldn't just kick a gassed collegue out of it, it's a chemical substance that makes you sleep.

The 2D graphics btw? They get in the way too much. You know why Commandos very rarely made you do things outside of your field of view? Because that's bad game design. I shouldn't do stuff blindly, ever.

The worst thing however? This game simply doesn't let you make even the smallest mistakes which is again horrendous game design. I should be able to make a mistake and correct it by reacting accordingly (you know, like in Commandos) but here? Nope, you make a mistake, get shot in the face and it's time to reaload.

Horrendous, just horrendous.

First of all: yes, this game is nearly unplayable on Windows 7 and newer. I applied an official patch, but it didn't help a lot. At the beginning, the game froze every 5 minuts, so I had to kill it and start again. Then, after few levels, the situation was better. Frequency of freezing was lower and lower. Finaly, I was able to play few last levels without any problems.

I tolerated all of those restarting because:
- starting this game on curent computers with SSD disk is really fast
- you can (and you should) use quick-save all the time
- this old good stealth western game is just AWESOME

I enjoyed the game 15 years ago, and I enjoyed it again.

This game is a gem, at least what I remember of it back in the day.

But I couldn't get it to work on either my laptop or desktop. yes I know there's a workaround guide around here, but that involves downlading files from not official sources and I don't want to do that.

So here's the thing, this developer put this game for sale, knowing that in [current year] most users are running Windows 7+, and didn't bother to make it compatible, so why would I?

So much pressure in my recent daily life and I found that video games couldn't offer me much relief as they did in the past.Talking about most games in my steam library,some of them I play for burdening purposes like achievement and most of them I play for reasons of nothing,I just have to play them because I bought them with stupid meaningless sense of ownership so I must play them to pay up the debt.And all of these,boring.

But This Game! I play this game for fun,for a long-lost feeling of self satisfaction and I just can't have enough of it,even though it has already offered a huge storyline of 25 delicately designed levels.I gave it my first try back in the days of 2001 and I just finished my 4th playing through yesterday,and I must say this game still doesn't seem to be out of date even after all these years,still has tons of new tactics to be tried out and still holds so many excellent funny little details to be discovered then grin my face.

What I like most is,this game has a large variaty of enemy types,and diffrences among them result in diffrent tactics(Just compare all these with those copy-paste nazi soldiers in Commandos series,you will see what revolution in enemy system Desperados Wanted Dead or Alive has brought in 2001.Even Commandos II Men of Courage wouldn't surpass it in this aspect )

All in all,this game offers me great enjoyment from which I've been away for so long.I own it my gratitude.

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 7/8/10. 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 voice acting (In Italian).

Anyway, if you have Windows 7/8, I suggest to DON'T BUY this game, because it doesn't run pretty well. Most players say the game is unplayable for who have the newest OS, because there's a drop of FPS + laggy mouse and multiple crashes during the game, but there are some ways for fixing part of those problems if you read the threads in the community hub. So, think twice before buying it!
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.

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

This game is masterpiece.
The humorous and deadly atmosphere keeps it together.
What I like about this game is that most levels can be finished by various tactics.. You can gun your way out, sneaky clear whole level or set a dangerous environment with traps. And this really suits this genre. Though the levels are really challenging, you do not need too much strategy to finish it. I will always recommend this game.
20 ish hour packed single player that you should play through at least once.

Short version: 89%
Desperados is a squad-oriented stealth/action game following the footsteps of Commandos, but with a Western setting. It may be a copycat, but a copycat with great levels, good mechanics, and memorable characters, easily earning its rightful place among all real-time tactical game fans.

Long version:
Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive is the proof that you can create a copycat that can be on par with the original. In our case, it is a clone of Commandos: a series of WWII real-time squad-based tactical/strategy games, where you control a group of highly trained specialist through a set of mostly stealth-oriented levels.

The core mechanics are the same: your task is to clear each level from enemy guards and bandits to reach your current mission mark. To do so, you take control of a colourful cast of Western stereotypes, all with their unique abilities. They are maybe a little too unique, as even mundane tasks as tying a knot or saddling a horse need their own specialists.
Another similarity is that diversion tactics are the bread and butter of gameplay. This is where Desperados outdid Commandos: you can pre-record a set of commands for all characters to execute a complex plan with the push of a button. Thanks to the devilish enemy placements, this feature is almost essential after a while.
The setting makes one big difference though: we cannot have a Western without some shoot-outs, so Desperados puts a smaller emphasis on sneaking to give way for some old-fashioned gunplay instead.

The story is built from spaghetti Western tropes: a mysterious bandit leader pulls a few high-profile robberies, which attracts the attention of a veteran bounty hunter, who then collects a few outlaw buddies to get to the bottom of the events. After this, the plot runs into a few dead ends on purpose, which may be a little tiresome, but eventually it reaches its typical adventure-oriented Western movie conclusion.

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

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 :)
