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.
+ 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
-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.

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.

We had purchased this game a little over a year ago and play it on occasion. Gameplay is as advertised.Published on November 18, 2013 by cckbella
Jagged Alliance is probably not for everyone but I really enjoyed playing through to the end, a feat that took a good month or so. Read morePublished on October 2, 2009 by Fat Stack
