The title pretty much says it all. Fat Shark, the developer, stopped developing the game or fixing bugs and the population died off quickly afterwards. The game had a lot of potential if they'd just put some more effort into it, developed some new content and kept up with the balance and bug fixes. Sigh. Last few times I fired up the game there were no people online at all. As the game has no single player component at all, this means that game is as useful as a dead MMO on your hard drive. Sad. :( If the game was still alive, I would give it a 8/10 easily because while people were playing I had a blast. Now, I'm giving it a low rating simply because it's dead.
So you can chose your own character out of four and have yourself a team on team battle, or everyone on everyone. Which ever you like, and you go off and slaughter one another. Doesn't that sound like a blast? Although I would recommend having some patience for this game. Rarely any players.
Lead and Gold does a brilliant job of taking a third person shooter and throwing into the wild west, with 4 classes to choose from and some great features. There are quite a few game modes that should be able to keep you entertained for a while, however the population is dwindling, so it may be difficult to find a server. Despite this, if you do get in you'll find that the game will satisfy your need for a new TPS with it's strategy and simplistic yet charming art. Definitely worth how little it costs.
Lead and Gold is an on-line only (no main-single player or campaign) team-based game. For what it is, it's actually a lot of fun but has only a few different maps and game modes. The real problem with Lead and Gold is its player base... or lack there of. If you're able to find a populated server with some people to play with, you're sure to enjoy yourself, but good luck with that at this point.
Just got this on sale recently, I went in with fairly low expectations expecting the same old team based gameplay with western inspired Graphics. Wow I could not have been more wrong. The gameplay hooked me immediately and the classes are varied enough that you pick and choose what you are playing as.Of Particular enjoyment are the Robbery games which have 2 interesting phases to them. The gaphics, sound & music fit the bill perfectly and the maps are very well thought out and fun with lots of alternate routes and obvious choke points. This game also has a 2 player survival mode for unlimited replayability! You gotta give this game a try.
