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.

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

A lot of mercs with individual skills, individual weapon preference. Realations between the mercs can infulence the game. Every stat has its own value for the game. Generally good AI. The game is available via Gog and Steam which is great. Lots (!!) of guns with different characteristics. Possibility to create own custom merc. Interesting plot.

    For cons: I would say that nowadays the resolution is low, you can use some hacks to advance the game really fast (like going to the edge of the screen and advancing to the next section), but it's generally your decising if you exploit that or not, so I would not say this is big deal.

    This 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.

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.

    Too niche game that did not get a big franchise, but died in the bud. Too sad that no game developer will make a qualitative continuation
