Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge reviews and comments

I find it a "Cheekiness" to offer the Game in a Pack with the Predecessor and let it be considered "german." If this Game is acquired by Steam, you only have the English Version of the Game. However, it Would be great if Steam were to introduce an Update so that you could also change the Language, otherwise it's just a "Decree."

A Western game with old Graphics and a reasonably good Atmo-getaway. It is particularly positive to note that you can switch between a Top-down and Third-person perspective. On the negative side, on the other hand, it does not explain how to open doors, there are no highly visible Quest markers and no Quest Book, so you rumble when you haven't realised what the Mission is, which is always briefly displayed. It is also Necessary To use a Cavity that you cannot reload your Weapon when you move.

Although I liked Commandos and also found the first Part of Desperados as well as the Robin Hood Offshoot of Spellbound very neat, I could do less with this Part here. It'S a shame, actually. But you don't have to find every Game terrific. My Main Problem was somehow always the somewhat hairy control or Reaction to my "Commands." But I can certainly encourage all Fans of this Subgenre of Real-time tactical Games and Western Fans are also likely to get their Money's worth in the harmonious Atmosphere. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr8MSMjpNM8

I already know the Game from Times of childhood And I have to say it is Still Mega Fun today! The Graphics are of course not like today's but really good for that time and still very acceptable today. I like the Music very much and fits Super with the Game. You have to get used to the Controls first but I had it out after a few Minutes of jerk. On the one hand the 3-Person and on the other hand, to scout the Map And better To place Dynamite or gas the Free Bird's eye view. Those who love Cowboys, Indians and the Wild West with a lot of Action will love this Game. In My Opinion, a real Classic and there is no to the impact of being satisfied with the Graphics of Damals.

Is this supposed To be a Joke? The first Part of Desperado's "Wanted Dead or Alive" was only in 2D View but a decent Game with a good Story. I had really been looking forward to the second Part of Desperados. Now I am more than disappointed. In Principle, it could not have been implemented worse. And that's from a Publisher Called Atari. You are Miles Away what I say Light Years away from the first Game. Only foreign sheprams and healthy shysing helps. Because I don't even want to play it if I got it given it. And only in English. I as a hard-edged Game Reak had already muddled Through many bad games with Agony but this is not even possible to play in Pain. Pure Rip-off Attempt! I can only recommend You fingers away from this Dirt.
