Summary: This game is very similar to the original Jagged Alliance on PC from 1994. This game has great lasting appeal because there are 60 sectors to capture and many skills to level up. Each character has a differnet set of stats and a different personality. You can make money by processing the sap from special trees that only grow on this island. A man named Lucas Santino has captured all of the sectors except one and your objective is the get them all back.

Summary: Jagged Alliance is probably not for everyone but I really enjoyed playing through to the end, a feat that took a good month or so. This game certainly isn't easy, nor would I say it is particularly "fun". If you're like me though and you enjoyed games like Front Mission then this game will be a good choice. If you try this game, read the manual. There is a lot you can do and it isn't the most intuitive game out there.
Summary: I'm thrilled that there is still community interest in this beautiful franchise. I think perhaps a bit more attention to detail may have made this into a springboard towards more of the same, but as such I think this game is a bit lacking, mainly because of the overly simplistic gameplay and the failings of the control system. I realize Jagged Alliance 1 is very old, and the graphics were redone quite well.
Summary: I've been hoping to see JA come out on the DS ever since the DS Phat first came out, so am really excited about this game. I played the original on the PC back in the day, and enjoyed it then, but JA2 came out before I explored JA1 very much. Now I get the chance to do that. The Good: This is a fun turn-based strategy game, so if you like turn-based strategy games, you'll like this one. The mercenaries are what makes it so fun.
Summary: If you were expecting Jagged Alliance 2 this is not it. I know the box art is misleading, but the name of the game is Jagged Alliance DS not Jagged Alliance 2 DS. Even the actual box art is only similar to the PC version of Jagged Alliance. If you have only played Jagged Alliance 2 (JA2) or if JA2 is your favorite then you might be let down by this game like the other reviewer. Now that this is all sorted, how does this game play?
Summary: Correction this is a remake of Original do no be fooled by cover art original review below... Jagged Allience 2 on a PC was and still is one of my top games of all times. So i was very much looking forward to this remake. The intro was good. The rest ... Not so much - clunky interface, only 6 different guns((original had many more) if you never played it on the PC you might give it a chance if you have skip it - you would be crying into your pillow screaming: Why oh Why...
Summary: I like turn based games, but this one crawls very very slowly.
You are forever fiddling with inventory trying to carry all the stuff you find
and having to micro manage stuff. Having to recruit and train your team is all
good, but I just couldnt get into it. Better games exist eg. The warhammer
squad command which was a lot more fun.
