If you were expecting Jagged Alliance 2 this is not it. I know the box art is misleading, but the name of the game is Jagged Alliance DS not Jagged Alliance 2 DS. Even the actual box art is only similar to the PC version of Jagged Alliance. If you have only played Jagged Alliance 2 (JA2) or if JA2 is your favorite then you might be let down by this game like the other reviewer.

Now that this is all sorted, how does this game play? Well it plays just like Jagged Alliance and that is a bad thing ONLY if you didn't like the first one on the PC. Personally, I liked the first JA. JA2 is a deeper game and I might like JA2 more, but I still like my JA. If JA2 was out for the DS now, I might say get it JA2 over JA. However, JA is a great game in its own right.

Good:

+ True to the original. This is the most important part, there weren't any shortcut taken with porting this game over
+ Voice clips from the original made it in the game. Not a huge deal, but nice
+ I am having a good time playing it

Bad
-Using the stylus can cause mistakes if you are not careful. I have forgotten to "clear" my command and wound up moving people when I don't mean to. 99% of the time it works if you are careful. You can also use the d-pad and buttons to move your people if you would like.

If you have never played JA or JA2, game movement is real time unless there are enemies in the area and then it becomes turn based until they have been eliminated from the area.

Fallout 1/2 (the combat is anyway)

I've been hoping to see JA come out on the DS ever since the DS Phat first came out, so am really excited about this game. I played the original on the PC back in the day, and enjoyed it then, but JA2 came out before I explored JA1 very much. Now I get the chance to do that.

The Good: This is a fun turn-based strategy game, so if you like turn-based strategy games, you'll like this one. The mercenaries are what makes it so fun. Each has a personality, and they come out during gameplay.

The Bad: Some nitpicks. Inventory management is somewhat of a pain, when compared to more recent games, including JA2. Merc replies get repetitive when you are searching sectors for loot.

Finally, I realize that this is a port of a PC game, which would make it really difficult to do, but wish that the programmers could have somehow figured out how to put the manual on the cartridge. I had to carry it around with me for the first couple of days before I was comfortable with how to access controls and do other things. When you get this game, Read The Friggin' Manual before you start to play. It comes in handy.

I'm thrilled that there is still community interest in this beautiful franchise. I think perhaps a bit more attention to detail may have made this into a springboard towards more of the same, but as such I think this game is a bit lacking, mainly because of the overly simplistic gameplay and the failings of the control system. I realize Jagged Alliance 1 is very old, and the graphics were redone quite well. Unfortunately, I find myself advancing in a brute force firing line, and wondering what is happening (i.e. What blocked my shot? How close should I be with this gun? Is this cover effective at all?). The tactical aspects of the world map work quite well, but in a tactical combat game the combat is key and I think we have come to (and should) expect more from this. A little modernizing would have gone a long way.
