Jagged Alliance Back in Action is a contemporary remake of the latest title in the much-loved Jagged Alliance series of turn-based mercenary-themed strategy games. Designed from the ground up to offer a modern gaming experience, Back in Action showcases an updated isometric 3D look and interface, highly detailed character models and a variety of new gameplay features.

Back in Action takes players to the fictitious country of Arulco, where a ruthless dictator has seized power and only a small group of rebels stand to resist him. Tasked with freeing the island from the dictator’s iron grip, players will command rebel and mercenary forces while using tactical, diplomatic and economic tools to keep troops supplied and ready for the next flight, all while commanding them directly in nail-biting battles.

Back in Action’s innovative “plan & go” combat system combines real-time strategy (RTS) with turn-based elements to guarantee that the intricacies of tactical warfare are rendered in dynamic, exciting gameplay. This challenges would-be commanders to master not only strategy and tactical combat, but also to maximize their team’s capabilities through RPG-like character advancement.

  • Unrivaled mix of combat (tactics), roleplay, business and strategy
  • Innovative “Plan & Go” combat system combines RTS gameplay with turn-based elements
  • Realistic war setting with authentic-looking firearms
  • Laptop/computer menu as a central anchor point for the player
  • Assemble your own unit of mercenaries from numerous unique mercenaries
  • Simultaneous control of multiple squads using a strategic map

J A 2 with Less Content and better Graphics.

This is basically the same game as the original Jagged Alliance 2 Gold with better graphics. It has the almost exactly the same story line and game map. The original J A 2 was one of the best games of it's time when it came out 7 or 8 years ago when PC's weren't nearly as good. That is why I bought this game. I was disappointed that there was no new plot or map and they left out much of the content from the original game that added humor, complexity, customization and overall polish that was already there. For example there were cut-to scenes in J A 2 , were the evil queen smacked around her assistant when you would take a new territory. Also there was much more subplots and options. Your hired mercenaries had more personality and it took some effort to manage them or they would quit on you.

If they took the original J A 2 and just added a better Texture Package and left everything else alone , they would have had a much better game. "Elliot ! You Idiot ! "

That being said, I did enjoy playing this game. The game reasonably stable. There are a few bug's. It requires a STEAM account. The graphics are average to good. The overall game-play is good.

It is worth buying. I enjoyed it.

I can't believe this game was released without the option of creating your own customizable character. I prefer to play the web browser game Jagged Alliance Online simply because you can create your own merc.
