Even though graphics are old, i come back to it because there simply is no other game that had such polished tactical turn-based gameplay. Mechanics are simple to understand yet offers wide variety of tactical options, skill up system where you improve skills that you use and is very satisfying somehow, with suprisingly competent AI that can be very clever with flanking (you constantly have to check your flanks because guess what, if their friends are dying on one spot, they're looking to avoid that area), with great mod support that is still active made it last way beyond its lifetime. Frankly, every "bestselling" turn-based game ive played in recent years just fails to impress me thanks to this one game. They never managed to replicate it, just like Heroes3, this game is a must-play classic for every Turn-based Strategy fan. (if im being honest, every gamer should play it) Just play it with 1.13 mod.

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

    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because the game takes it's greatness from the tactical combat and the fun from that isn't diminished by the long since outdated visual presentation.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
