Wanted Dead or Alive is the first installment of the series, generally appreciated as a nice addition to The Western and the stealth strategy genres. The sequels Cooper's revenge and Helldorado are less popular and not well-regarded, usually seen generic and badly programmed. It took 13 years before Desperados III was released, which is praised as a return to form for the franchise and the stealth strategy genre as a whole.
