If you decide to bite the bullet, be aware that this game is not Jagged Alliance. While it may (or may not) be a nice game on its own, do know what you are getting into. There are already a couple of mods available for it at The Bear's Pit, though I haven't played it yet, so I can't tell you if it's good or not. But imho, the lack of Fog of War is a huge minus.
I really like JA2. I will pass until the price is right.
People say that the new JA is more like Commandos rather than JA2. Not sure if it's true.
It's very true. It's a lot like if Jagged Alliance 2 was made in a Commandos style engine. RTS tactical action strategy, plenty of pausing to issue commands and quick saving. I personally liked it a lot.
Thanks for the heads up. Ill pass on it then.
Aw, don't dismiss it just because of that. Yeah, if you go in expecting it to be exactly like the original, you'll be disappointed.
If you look at it like a new game or a spin-off, and if you like games a la Commandos, it's really quite good. Check out some reviews and decide for yourself.
Yeah, I'll wait. Looking more forward to XCOM: Enemy Unknown. I can wait on JA:BIA until it's a little more "heavily discounted".
