    Jagged Alliance: Rage! Is the closest thing we have to the greatness of Jagged Alliance 2. It's a very trimmed game, delivering the experience rather than a carbon copy of the series. You still have to care for your mercs' health and gear, as well as carrying capacity, but at a much less grognardy level. I dunno if 1.13 mod fanatics will be pleased, but for the others, it's a good introduction to what Jagged Alliance used to represent.

    Jagged Alliance: Rage is yet another release that uses the Jagged Alliance name but fails to deliver. The turn-based gameplay and the survival elements are good enough, but in other areas there are tons of shortcomings that not only disappoints the old fans of the series but also fails to ward off competition from other turn-based titles available on the market.

    Jagged Alliance Light: Only four controllable mercenaries, small maps and comic graphics - but if you don't expect Jagged 3, you'll get solid tactics.

    This classic franchise is back with good ideas and a poor execution. If you are a hardcore fan of the series or you’re planning on playing with friends, have a look at it. If not, better look elsewhere.

    The battles are decent, but with the focus on wrong priorities, lack of character development and a few other problems this is little more than a mess with quite some potential.

    This Jagged Alliance is bad, but not to the point that it incites rage. Play, uninstall and forget. It’s not rage, more like… apathy.

    I'm really struggling to find anything good to say about Jagged Alliance: Rage, other than that its name is appropriate. I suppose the stealth mechanic sort of works, although even there occasionally your sneaky work can be ruined by a patrolling soldier somehow glitching and eternally clambering on and off a rock instead of completing his route. Each playable character has a background trait that is supposed to play out as a weakness but that you rarely notice in play. The characters you choose to play seem irritated by one another, and by everything going on around them all the time. I've got to say, I think it's pretty understandable.

    I really like it and i didn't expect much. For the price it has the game is worth it, check it out if you are into those kind of games.

    9 балов в качестве попытки скомпенсировать перезаниженый общий бал. Почему? На мой взгляд очень сбалансированная и неперегруженая игра9 балов в качестве попытки скомпенсировать перезаниженый общий бал. Почему? На мой взгляд очень сбалансированная и неперегруженая игра получилась.

    В игре добавили чуть не главный параметр жажды, который требует всё время искать воду, соответственно заставляет не отсиживаться на месте, двигаться постоянно вперёд.

    Убрали из игры максимально всё лишнее. Обычно баланс пытаются подкрутить огромным кол-вом излишних нюансов. Здесь же пошли от обратного убрали почти всё что можно, оставив буквально только тактику. С удовольствем перепроходим игру уровни по несколько раз, добиваясь максимально крутого результата.

    Наконец-то в игре увидел явно выраженные недостатки героев, не недопрокаченные параметры, а именно минусы.
    Кол-во героев сокращено с той-же целью, есть какой-то набор перков, которым хочешь проходить, выбираешь соответствующих желаемым перкам героев и вперёд.

    Потрясающяя идея с ещё одним параметром - адреналин, который весьма гармонично раскрывается в боях, позволяя расширять тактику отряда специфическими возможностями.

    Неплохая реализация "удачи", несколько раз заходя на локацию с врагами получаешь разные шансы попасть во врагов, враги могут по разному контратаковать, в разных вариантах враги выискивают наёмников. Здесь же шанс получить нужную или не очень нашлёпку к оружию или броне. Хотя если не хочешь полагаться на случай, проблемы решает SaveLoad.

    Чем больше играем, тем больше затягивает.
    Считаю, что текущая вариация J/A сильно недооценена и достойна более высокого среднего балла. Хотел бы, чтобы игре дали ещё один шанс, некоторые минусы можно считать и плюсом.

I didn't think the art designI played and finished the game. 18 hrs to complete with a mixture of stealth and let it rain bullets tactics. I didn't think the art design was the end of the world and generally speaking it was fun to play. I can't give it more than a 6 though.
    -Nothing new to the genre, we have seen it all before
    -Re-introducing quality of life pains that have been solved before. (i.e. A looting screen would be nice at the end of a mission, and switch off turn based moves outside of combat ffs).
    -6/10 fun factor if you enjoy this style of game.
    -A little buggy with game freezing up on NPC move turns

    FYI - you can pick two char from the list when you start and about half way through a third. There is no option to create a new char. Max squad size is 3 with no option to swap out the char once picked. Your choices are final.

I did not expect much fromI have played almost every single JA game since JA2 - which I adore - and some of the siblings have been quite ok. I did not expect much from this, but even then was a bit disappointed. This is unfortunately one of the worst ones. Lots of (sound) bugs, lots of repeatitiveness, lots of bad voice acting, not-helpful UI. I did play it through once, and enjoyed a bit, but don't recommend this. Expand
