JA: Back in Action - Review @ Strategy Informer

by Dhruin, 2012-02-13 12:26:48

Strategy Informer has the first full Jagged Alliance: BiA review that we've tracked, with a score of 7/10:

The underlying fact though is that Jagged Alliance: Back In Action is a hugely addictive and time-gobbling strategy game, if not currently a completely polished one. When things go right the adrenaline rush is incredible, but when things go wrong several times in a row you’ll want to rage-uninstall immediately. Constant checkpoint reloading and team micro-management is what Back In Action’s all about, and some strategy fans won’t get on with that. Conversely, Jagged Alliance fans will hate the move to real-time (despite the friendly Command Mode) and more especially the lack of tension and slow pace that characterized previous games. I also can’t imagine anyone being satisfied with constantly taking down enemies so devoid of personality or believability.
