Commandos meets The Magnificent Seven
, with shades of Robin Hood: The Legend of Sherwood
(same company, after all).
The story takes place a little after the Civil War, in New Mexico, where the train robberies have gotten out of control, and the local Railroad Baron Mr. Smith wants something to be done about it. John Cooper, the bounty hunter, decides to take the job. Taking the short trip to Louisiana to recruit (or rather, save their asses from whatever trouble they gotten themselves into) his old partners Sam Williams, Doc McCoy and Kate O'Hara, and convincing the rather uncooperative Marshall to tell them who's responsible for the train robberies, they set off to catch the Sanchez, the local gang leader, and to collect the bounty.
But things are hardly that simple...Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive
has two less famous sequels, named Desperados 2: Cooper's Revenge
.Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive
packs almost every Western Trope and plays them straight.
