Should you buy this (plus review)

8 posts in this topic

Hello, just thought I'd drop my review here and advise you all to go and buy this game (as not a lot of people are talking about it)

https://www.gamepitt.co.uk/desperados-iii-3-ps4-review/

It's by the devs who did Shadow Tactics and it basically takes the same mechanics and gameplay elements from that but flips it into a Western setting with improvements all over the place. To me, as I've not played previous games in the series, it felt like a multi-protagonist Hitman - but from a zoomed-out perspective.

You have to carefully plan the movements of up to five people at once (through the brilliant Showdown mode which pauses the game and lets you plan each action), then you can execute them one by one or all at once. An example would be to plan a guy to jump out of a bush and kill a guard, then go lure the guard tot he right spot with the woman and execute the action, watching as your other guy jumps out, kills him, and drags his body away for you - even though you're controlling all the characters.

The trophies are going to be hard or at least long to obtain). Some of the missions to get the medals are quite difficult - such as the speedrun ones and not saving. But, you don't need all of them, you need about 80% of them. 

Anyway, I hope this has brought more attention to the game - Playstation Access also played it for 90 mins here:

The game is definitely on my watchlist. However, same as with Blades of Shogun, its better to play it with M&K.

They've done a brilliant job of adapting it to the controller tbh. Everything felt very intuitive and easy to control - I thought it would be tricky due to moving everyone at once whilst also scouting the area, but it was well-mapped.

I tried a K+M on the PS4 as well (as some games have hidden full support) but it didn't register it this time around.

Its gonna be a sale for me.

 

Looks badass and i played the original back in the day. Commandos is more me but i'll pick this up eventually. 

 

On a side note they should well do a remaster of Commandos 1, theyre already doing the 2nd why not the first?!?!
