Desperados III is another entry in the popular series of tactical strategy games inspired by Commandos series. The new entry wasn’t developed by Spellbound, the creators of previous installments. Spellbound was replaced by the German studio Mimimi Productions, which previously worked on well-received game based on similar principles, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.

Plot

The game continues the story from the previous games. The main protagonist of Desperados III is John Cooper, a gunslinger known from previous entries in the series. He takes command of a group of outlaw specialists. Together with them, he completes the most dangerous missions on the Wild West.

Mechanics

Desperados III remains faithful to the basic principles of previous entries, especially the first game in the series. It is a tactical real-time strategy game in which the players command a group of five specialists. They complete missions on rather small maps. The enemies are usually having great advantage in numbers, so winning requires a stealth approach and cleverness. While the players remain undetected, the enemies are patrolling the maps, and avoiding detection is made easier by the interface that presents the sight range of the guards.

Each member of the squad features a different specialization, unique equipment, and special skills. In addition to the gunslinger Cooper, the players can control, among other characters, a sniper and a woman that can distract guards. The players must learn how to take advantage of the talents of the characters and they must learn how to make the characters cooperate with each other well.

Desperados III offers a great tactical freedom. The missions can be completed quietly, without killing anyone, or by participating in spectacular shootouts. Players can take advantage of gadgets and skills to balance the advantage in numbers of the opponents. Each problem and obstacle can be defeated in various different ways. Because of that, missions can be completed a few times, each time with a different approach and on a different difficulty level.

Technical aspects

The events are presented with an isometric camera. The graphics are three-dimensional and they can impress with a high level of details and the atmosphere of western movies.
