Jagged Alliance: Back in Action is the sixth entry in the Jagged Alliance franchise -- at least, sort of. It's actually a remake of Jagged Alliance 2 (which was released back in 1999), where the broad strokes of the game have been kept but many of the details have changed. I have no idea why a developer would want to remake an old Jagged Alliance game rather than create a new one, but there you go. It's been eight years since the last Jagged Alliance game hit store shelves (Wildfire in 2004), so perhaps publisher Kalypso Media and developer bitComposer are banking on most people not noticing the difference. Hey, if it works for movies, why not games?
