IGN: Jagged Alliance DS Review

To be fair, a lot of the issues with Jagged Alliance's design are simply products of their time. Games were simply more difficult 15 years ago, especially those within the PC strategy genre. Hardcore players practically expected overly complex mechanics and needlessly expansive toolsets, two traits that are maligned today as poor design. The game's visuals were once considered adequate as well, but now come off as some of the worst graphics ever to grace Nintendo's handheld. Had Cypron Studios and Strategy First done more to modernize the ancient design of the game's original release, this review may have been entirely different. As it is, though, Jagged Alliance is faithful to a fault, likely to appeal exclusively to fans of the original with no concern for the broader audience.
