Conclusion: Few things are more fun than rollin’ out with your hand-picked crew of goons and assaulting the enemy. Unfortunately it takes a while to achieve a level of comfort with the controls, and this goes beyond the usual learning curve of most turn-based tactics games. Not only does the DS stylus seem a little oversensitive, there’s also the fact that you really need an instruction manual - which means if you’re renting, be prepared to hunt down instructions online.
Summary: : Jagged Alliance has made a mostly successful transition from the PC to the DS, and fans of the franchise and the turn-based strategy genre will find plenty to enjoy in this adapted game, so long as they can overlook some flaws in the transition and the original product.

Excerpt: If you want to take a trip back in time to 1994, there are plenty of better options than playing Jagged Alliance for the Nintendo DS.
