A Classic Is Remade, Again, Badly
21 May 2012
Excerpt: One of the very first games I played on the first 'modern' game computer I ever owned, a supped-up 486, was Jagged Alliance. The game had it all. Tactical combat. Lots of cool guns. Mercenaries as characters who all had unique personalities and voices. And a great story about liberating a county, and making money while doing it. As good as Jagged Alliance was, there was not a lot done with the series until later when Jagged Alliance: Deadly Games came out in 1995.
Excerpt: Jagged Alliance: Back in Action feels like a modern Jagged Alliance game – just not a very good one. You’re going to be frustrated, and you’re going to reload your save when a merc goes down, and you’re going to be disappointed as you do it.
Pros: Equipment selection is good, has a lot of good ideas
Cons: Never fully realizes those good ideas, unnecessarily hard
Conclusion: L'idée de faire un remake fidèle est louable, mais la réalisation de Jagged Alliance Back in Action en devient schizophrène, en plus d'être assez limitée de manière générale. Trop de défauts, trop de lacunes viennent perturber un gameplay très accrocheur et beaucoup de charme dans le background. Je veux un vrai Jagged Alliance, exigeant, ergonomique, moderne. Je sais que c'est possible.
