Ask any old-school PC gamer about his favorite tactical games, and more often than not you'll find a Jagged Alliance title near the top of the list. It's a name held in nearly as high regard as X-COM or Syndicate, and for good reason. Sir-Tech's...

The Jagged Alliance series has always been about small squad tactics with a dash of resource management thrown in for spice. “Jagged Alliance: Back in Action” (JABIA) knew a good thing when it saw it and has not discarded these basic building blocks....

It also doesn’t help that the easiest way to win battles is to exploit the enemy A.I. While the A.I. does try to retreat and regroup when your own forces pull back, engaging them is a comical farce of watching menacing machete machos and pistol...

Going back to improve on older games can sometimes muck up what worked rather than fix what was awry in the first place. That's partially the case with Jagged Alliance: Back in Action, a remake of the second game in the series that attempts to freshen...

Much like The Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961, Jagged Alliance: Back in Action probably seemed like a great idea at the time. A retread of the classic Jagged Alliance 2's campaign of tactical guerrilla warfare against a tyrannical island...

When I saw Jagged Alliance: Back In Action (BIA) at E3, “excited” was far too pallid and sickly a word to describe my level of interest in this game. I was a long time fan, not hardcore enough to be doing my own mod work, but certainly a...

Oh, hello again Jagged Alliance: Back In Action. It seems only a couple of months ago (it was) that I was giving the game a thorough preview, now I’m coming back to see if the game’s hot and the ironing’s been done. Considering the pedigree of the...

von Stephan Petersen Das Geschriebene hört sich womöglich negativer an als Jagged Alliance: Back in Action in Wirklichkeit ist. Da es sich aber weitestgehend um ein Remake handelt, muss es sich den Vergleich mit dem großen Vorbild gefallen lassen....

Der er nogle ting her i livet, der får ens hjerte til at springe et slag over. For eksempel et øjeblik hvor din smartphone glider ud af hænderne på dig, og suser mod gulvet med sin skrøbelige skærm forrest. Lidt den samme fornemmelse blev vakt af...

Es ist bestimmt schwer eine so festgefahrene Fangemeinschaft mit einem neuen Titel zu überzeugen, doch mit Back in Action streut man Salz in offene Wunden. Nach Titeln wie Brigade E5 oder High Calibre sehnte man sich nach einem würdigen Nachfolger...
