This is the second episode of the 3 Desperados games. The other two of the series are Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive (the first episode) and Desperados 3: Helldorado both are also great games and ported to the Mac too!!
Important: A 512mb graphics card is recommended if you use high resolution in combination of 3D perspective. So for low end cards I would avoid 3D view or use a low resolution for it.
America in 1883 – a sheriff is perplexed after he continues to find the bodies of dead settlers. The rumor is that the braves from the White Wolves Tribe are responsible; but the trail continues to go cold. John Cooper and his friends set out to look for the White Wolves Tribe nothing is as it seems – the Indians are innocent. In order to prove the innocence of the Indians and hunt down the real murders, Cooper and his team must follow the trail of an Indian legend. The team uncovers the secret of a sacred mountain and helps to fulfill and ancient prophecy causing Cooper to realize that the secret to the deaths of the settlers is linked with his own past.
