The Wild West. A place where the law is made by those with a gun in their hands, and is enforced by the henchmen at their command. A place where death is no stranger and the undertakers are working overtime… especially when people start playing Desperados III. This real-time tactics game, developed by German game studio Mimimi Games (Shadow Tactics: Blades Of The Shogun), lets players command a band of Desperados led by fan-favourite gunslinger John Cooper.

A really well-crafted set of stealth puzzles are on offer here. Desperados III is tough as nails (despite ample difficulty options) but never frustrating. Quick reloading times ease the burden of the multiple attempts required to get past a given set of guards, and it is always satisfying when you finally pull it off. Optional objectives and missions keep me coming back for more.
Great game, especially because I wasn't expecting enjoying it this much. Very honest about the quicksave/quickload mechanics (having three quicksave "slots" is freakin' genius), charismatic characters, nice story (yep, heavy on clichés but, hey, it's a Western game) filled with some surprisingly cool twists.
