    I give it an 8 because there was nothing similar out there when it was released,some bugs but nothing that stopped me from completing the game, character voices can be annoying you can tell its europeans trying to be funny but comes off annoying after hearing the hillbillies 100 times

    Back in Action and Crossfire are two typical examples of 3D graphics done wrong. Don't get me wrong, the graphics themselves are okay, but it is the camera that annoys me. You are practically forced to always adjust the camera which is a NO GO in a modern Iso-3D-Game.

    The game itself is okay-ish, but it definitely lacks the atmosphere of the original JA games.

    Horrible, no tactics, no physics, AI movements like from games at 2000.
    Total disappointment, but a big step forward for developer (only) making it 3D

    Sorry

    Well, some users don't like it after comparing to JABIA. I can understand that since DLC only cost 5 dollars and this "standalone expansion" cost 30 bucks. Now if you put that aside, the combat of JAC is net. Most bugs in JABIA is fixed. The gaming experience is nice, especially when the enemies walked right into your carefully planned traps surrounded by landmines and be picked outWell, some users don't like it after comparing to JABIA.

The gaming experience is nice, especially when the enemies walked right into your carefully planned traps surrounded by landmines and be picked out without giving you a scratch, or when your men throw a grenade or two into a room packed with enemies. Never directly confront the enemies. Never expecting to finished a map in one go. They are armies and your are only mercenaries after all. Playing on hard with LOS. Expand

    It's a grave of JA series (
    Complitly no tactic and horrible micromanagement. Stupid system of damage armor, and stupid LVL cap.
    Stupid camera and stupid hit system.

    As much as I love the style of Jagged Alliance, this can BARELY be called a DLC, let a lone a standalone game for 29,99 Euro considering all that is new is another map, significantly smaller than the previous BIA one with no elements of exploring and a few new mercenaries, all of them practically useless.

    Shame on you Kalypso.

    This game is the supposed expansion of BiA, basically its just new maps and a few new mercs, the playstyle is exactly like BiS 1.13, the sector loot is a +, doorway gunfights are no longer bugged, you can arm your mercs with the sector loadout inventory, which is really sweet, and you can train mercs now.. Now the cons, there are too many upper levels, lower levels, for the "no rooftop"This game is the supposed expansion of BiA, basically its just new maps and a few new mercs, the playstyle is exactly like BiS 1.13, the sector loot is a +, doorway gunfights are no longer bugged, you can arm your mercs with the sector loadout inventory, which is really sweet, and you can train mercs now.. Now the cons, there are too many upper levels, lower levels, for the "no rooftop" camera to deal with, and if your merc is on top of a roof, good luck moving the rest of your squad to where you want them to be, starting off, unless you have ALOT of money dont expect to advance too far, you will be out gunned by the time you reach the 3rd sector, short of having a tank..dont even bother, also your weapon degradation goes so fast, that its hard to be in a gunfight and not have your weapon jam every 2nd shot, you will not have the mechanical skills to repair your weapons, let alone enough money to buy a toolkit, for me, this is going on the shelf till a trainer comes out. FYI playing this on hard, and no LoS. Good luck all! Expand

    Crossfire is such a shallow, boring, predictable experience that asking money for it should be a crime.

    Crossfire shoots blanks. You don't need the original JA and the tactical part of the game isn't that bad but what good is it when the rest sucks big time. [Oct 2012]

    You wanted more of the same? Then Crossfire has got you covered. It's an add-on that doesn't bring much new to the table and does little to enhance the core strategic gameplay. That notwithstanding, it still is perfectly solidly playable and quite challenging.
