Review: Jagged Alliance 2: Back in Action (New Gamer Nation)

There sure are a lot of classic game sequels coming out these days. Starting with Fallout 3, there have been plenty of reboots, remakes and revivals gracing our systems. With the recent release of the Syndicate remake, the upcoming double release of two XCOM games and many others, it seems like old school game franchises are a hot commodity. Jagged Alliance: Back in Action is the latest in this revival trend, bringing a remake of the classic turn-based Jagged Alliance 2. For those unfamiliar, Jagged Alliance is a series that positions you as the manager of a mercenary company, in which you hire, train and equip mercenaries to send into battle. The battles all play out tactically with you leading your men and women from a satellite view, using cover, stealth and firepower to overcome the odds against you. The remake by Coreplay is simultaneously extremely faithful and extraordinarily different. Confused? Read on. (Jagged Alliance: Back in Action, PC) 7.5/10
