Jagged Alliance: Back in Action

 

Every since playingStrike Commander back in the old DOS days, I've always had a soft spot in my heart for games that allow you to run a mercenary organization. Whether it be a flight sim (Strike Commander still needs a remake, damn it!), action,...

Finally, if you are looking for whiz-bang presentation, look elsewhere. The graphics in combat are adequate, but the menus and interface are archaic. What little voice work to be had comes in the form of staccato-animated talking heads. And even then,...

A few moments of glory in the midst of a minefield of frustrating design and bugs.

Amusing merc characters; RPG management; tons of guns to play with

Frustrating real-time combat; annoying bugs; tedious number of enemies

If it ain't broke don't fix it! At least it looks like the turn-based genre is on the upswing. Civ V: Gods & Kings, Warlock: Master of the Arcane, MechWarrior Tactics, and of course X-COM: Enemy Unknown are all on the way. What's your most-anticipated...

Jagged Alliance: Back in Action may ultimately be inferior to its legendary predecessor, but it has just enough of that spark in it to be a compelling, substantial impostor.

A good stiff challenge is one thing, but so many aspects of Back in Action's design actively work against you. That's unfortunate, because there are stretches where the core game is really enjoyable--just not enough to keep all but the most diehard...

I can't say I had no fun at all playing Jagged Alliance: Back in Action -- in fact, I'm having an entertaining time replaying the early missions with an all-melee hit squad and doing better than my first time around -- but I can say that of the 50...

Back In Action doesn't manage to be either the joyous return of a lost king or a spangly new action toy for the uninitiated. Too simplified for the former and too cheap for the latter, this isn't the explosive Jagged Alliance comeback it needed to be,...

When you cut off so much, what remains needs to be lithe and effective. In this case, it's a shame that the ideas that are JA:BIA's own aren't executed more effectively, because at the moment a lot of them are still twitching, leaking and making a bit...

Once I got into a mission I found it hard to stop until all my plans worked out, and even defeat often had me immediately coming back to try again. That's the mark of an addictive, fun game, which Jagged Alliance: Back In Action definitely is, but it...
