Jagged Alliance: Back in Action
Game Over Online
8 March 2012
Excerpt: Every since playing Strike 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, strategy or tactics, recruiting, supplying and deploying mercs is always good fun.
Conclusion: Verdict: A flawed gem. A lot of great qualities that make the gameplay solid and fun, but here are also quite a few annoying design decisions that slow down the pace. Definitely worth a look if you really like tactical action strategies, a genre that doesn’t see much love these days.
Conclusion: A score was really hard to come up with since it wavered back and forth for me on many occasions, and will undoubtedly do the same for others. 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 just doesn’t do quite enough to earn the really high marks.
Summary: An acceptable squad combat game that nonetheless has several problems. If you go in willing to live with them and understand this isn’t a perfect remake of Jagged Alliance 2, Back in Action can be worth checking out. Note that they are regularly patching this, and once they finish it could rise from ’acceptable’ to ’genuinely good.

Excerpt: From Turtle Beach to Mad Catz products, I’ve been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to use a number of quality headsets. I’m happy to share that Kingston’s HyperX Cloud Pro Gaming Headset is joining the ranks of my favourites. This headset really came out of left field for me as I was not expecting anywhere near the quality it offers considering its budget-like price.
Summary: The HyperX Cloud headset from Kingston is a solidly constructed, extremely comfortable entry-level headset that, while lacking in bells and whistles, is great at what it does. The nice price definitely helps.
Pros: Great sound for the price, Well constructed, Comfortable after extended use
Conclusion: Jagged Alliance is a flawed title. There is no doubt about that. Whether this is down to poor design decisions carried over from the original or more recent oversights, it’s not going to matter for the average player. There are many things that the developer could have done to improve the overall experience. However, I would definitely recommend this game to anyone who enjoys strategy games with a large amount of micromanagement.
Pros: Immersive and detailed graphics. Plenty to do. Intelligent saving system.
Cons: Clumsy controls. Steep learning curve. Your mercs chatter will irritate.
Conclusion: But it’s still a little distressing that a game with all the potential in the world to be one of the most spectacular gaming experiences of the decade is instead... a middle-of-the-road title. It may not crash, and it may not really bore you, but it isn’t polished, and doesn’t fully engross you. And yet I play on...
Conclusion: Jagged Alliance: Back in Action är inte det mest polerade spelet vi har sett i år och det lider av en hel del tekniska brister, men med det sagt går det inte dölja det faktum att det är ett otroligt beroendeframkallande spel som erbjuder riktigt mycket spelglädje. Det är inte ofta det kommer taktiska strategispel av den här magnituden nu för tiden, så det känns lite som att man måste passa på medans tillfälle ges.
Pros: • Kommandosystemet • Synkroniserade order • Dynamisk kampanj
Cons: • AI'n är inte speciellt bra • De kunde kanske ha polerat upp grafiken lite till?
Summary: Для фанатов сериала (пользуясь случаем, передаём всем этим семи человекам горячий привет и пожелания здоровья жене и детям), « Jagged Alliance: Back in Action – Снова в деле », скорее всего, станет скорее разочарованием, чем долгожданным возвращением любимой игры. Уж слишком много было пущено под нож в угоду современным реалиям рынка.
