Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge is a sequel to the interesting strategy game called Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive which gained much attention back in 2001. The story revolves around a bounty hunter called John Cooper and describes events referring to the capture of a dangerous criminal called Dillon in a small town near the Mexican border. The player controls a party of up to six characters similarly to the famous Commandos series. However, Desperados 2 utilizes a fully-3D graphics engine, therefore there is a possibility of controlling the characters in third-person perspective, similarly to Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid.
During the gameplay, the players will witness group shootouts, bar brawls, horse pursuits, raiding trains and classic western-like duels. Generally, the game offers 25 main episodes all of which consist of a number of missions (i.e. infiltrating buildings and eliminating enemies). Among the implemented locations, we can find remote settlements, Indian villages, military forts, huge canyons, and spooky ghost towns.
