Desperados III
The quiet bunch
IAN EVENDEN

THE BANDITS OF THE WILD WEST are an inquisitive bunch. They can be enticed to wander away from their buddies by something as innocuous as seeing a cat, or discovering footprints. A medical bag thumping down just inside their cone of vision is irresistible, curiosity overcoming all fear when near railroad tracks or the dangerous end of a horse. Funnily enough, the hard-eyed outlaws who go to investigate these things don’t come back.

Desperados III is from the same studio that brought us Shadow Tactics in 2016, and hews closely to the real-time stealth tactics template laid down in that game, inherited from the Commandos and Desperados games of the late 90s and early 00s. This being the Wild West, everybody has guns, but guns are loud, and noise brings bandits. The bad guys are more than capable of killing your team of infiltrators, and the guards they can summon will finish you off easily.
