  • Summary: This is easily one of the best games I've played in my life, especially if you add some mods (1.13 mod preferred). Forget the most recent "Back in Action" cashgrab attempt, stick to JA2. It is almost unelieveable that this game can still bring a lot of fun after so many years. Proper tactical turn based combat, incredible amount of options make this game fun to play no matter how many times I've already finished it.

  • Summary: One of the best games ever. I will keep it on my PC forever. If you haven't played it because you are young, please do. After you're done with the game, go to the fans' forums and install the 1.13 mod. Replay the game with it, at a much higher difficulty. The level of depth of this game hasn't yet been matched by any other game, even after all these 14 years. It really feels like a world, with cities, characters.

  • Summary: I´m now about half way through the campaign and played quite some PvP in Jagged Alliance Online. I was skeptical about the depth of the game and felt it might be dumbed down for a broader audience, but now I can say that this is definitely not the case. Managing my mercs, the equipment and my HQ well has become vital and getting the missions done with the gear I am willing to afford is already pretty challenging.

  • Summary: I like the game really much and would also recommend it to every friend (to whom I didn't do so far I already checked out this game months ago and lost attention because of suboptimal balancing and not enough attention from my side because I went on holiday. But now I came back and it is soo much better. I really enjoy it, because it gives me fun whenever I login (even in small pauses in work for a short session).

  • Summary: As an avid JA2 fan I bought the Ivan package and I'm having good fun with it. Granted, it's not as deep as the old game, but the campaign is fun and there is a LOT (as in 30+ hours and counting) of content in the 25 bucks package, not to mention the insane number of guns you can collect.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I've been playing that game on gamigo ever since the beta times and switched to steam, too. As I am not a masochist, I guess you'll have to live with a more positive review then. Yes, there's shadow still (and I am not talking just about the merc with that name). To me, the campaign setting is fun, yet I am not the biggest fan of PvP. I'm old school, I prefer turn-based over real-time, hands down.

  • Summary: I rated this game with a score of 7. While i agree that it does not nearly match the tactical richness of the prequels it still stands to reason that it still offers more than countless (popular) other games which are generally rated high. I still have hope for this game anyways there have been patches promised. Depending on the outcome i will re-rate the game. Also, there are not many alternatives if you want a turn based strategy game with pvp.

  • Summary: Squandered potential is the best way to describe this game. From what I understand, this game is a mildly successful browser game that they tried to turn into a real game. The problem lies in the devs/publisher not knowing what people want and expect from a game, so they gave us this, and have been genuinely surprised when people were not too happy with it.

  • Summary: I'm a huge Jagged Alliance 2 fan, it's in my top 10 favorite games easy. This is no JA2 it's closer to the short one off missions from Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games. Everything that made JA2 great is lacking in this game. Your Gear and Merc restore to full after every mission, mission are extremely linear and force you do them over and over again just to gain the prestige to progress past the pay for content.

  • Summary: What a load of steaming crap. Yet another skid mark on a once grand title. The game claims free to play. Yeah it's free to play if you wish to play the same 6 missions over and over and over in order to make close to no cash to upgrade your mercs, its more like a demo. PvP (When it works) isnt worth touching unless you are willing to spend the cash. I beg the gaming community please stop supporting these Free to play, credit card warrior games.
