Apr 24, 2012Best game of it's kind. Just recently played it again with mods and liberating the little country from the evil dictator is still fun because the game takes it's greatness from the tactical combat and the fun from that isn't diminished by the long since outdated visual presentation. (Elliot you idiot!)
Oct 17, 2012Actually its 2012 im still playing this title from time to time, in the last years using always the awesome 1.13 mod.
Ja2 is a tbs military game with rpg elements, side quests, exploration and more.
I think that still its by far the best turn based strategy game ever made, and beside the fact its not perfect for sure, especially the AI is quite basic, anyway its a game that any player interested in strategy games should at least try.… Expand
Jan 4, 2013I've had this game installed on every computer I've owned for almost... yeah, 15 years. It's that good. Jagged Alliance 2 combines an extremely deep tactical combat system with hilarious characters, elements of financial strategy, and what could only be described as "gun porn". A special mention should be made for the mod v1.13: get it. It adds even more weapons, abilities and challenges to an already superb game.… Expand
May 8, 2013There are several games that i'll always have installed no matter what and Jagged Alliance 2 is one of them. This game is truly a jewel, i simply cannot find any flaws speaking of patched version with mod v1.13. Ever since opening email from Psych Pro Inc. until the end every strategist will be in heaven. I just can't think of any tactical turn-based strategy even close to this game in complexity and overall quality.… Expand
Jul 9, 2014This is easily one of the best games I've played in my life, especially if you add some mods (1.13 mod preferred). Forget the most recent "Back in Action" cashgrab attempt, stick to JA2. It is almost unelieveable that this game can still bring a lot of fun after so many years. Proper tactical turn based combat, incredible amount of options make this game fun to play no matter how many times I've already finished it. There's always a different strategy, different approach. Each walktrough is unique and most importantly very enjoyable.
It saddens me when I see all of those modern games with fancy graphics but poor gameplay. You just finish them in a couple of hours nad never bother wit them again, while in 1.13 mod I had single battles that lasted about an hour.
Just try it.… Expand
Jul 29, 2013One of the best games ever. I will keep it on my PC forever. If you haven't played it because you are young, please do. After you're done with the game, go to the fans' forums and install the 1.13 mod. Replay the game with it, at a much higher difficulty.
The level of depth of this game hasn't yet been matched by any other game, even after all these 14 years. It really feels like a world, with cities, characters. There are just so many tactical combinations you come at during the game you rarely see even in strategic games. Every aspect of this game, from combat to logistics is just extreme fun.… Expand
