Jagged Alliance: Rage review

In Jagged Alliance: Rage, I pause before taking the final shot in each mission. If you were to examine my face during these moments, noting the hollow look in my eyes as my cursor hovers over a button labelled ‘Do it’, you might suspect some crisis of conscience. Perhaps I’ve started to doubt the cause my small team of mercenaries has been fighting for? Maybe…

Jagged Alliance: Rage rumbles in the jungle today

Jagged Alliance: Rage, direct sequel to Sir-Tech's tactical classic Jagged Alliance 2, has launched. Originally due out in September, it just kinda disappeared into the fog one day before launch. Now it's back, a bit more wild-eyed than before. Maybe it's seen things out there. Maybe Cliffhanger Productions wanted to polish it up - we'll probably never know. Anyway, JA: Rage is set twenty years…

Jagged Alliance: Rage delayed only one day before launch

"So it turns out Jagged Alliance: Rage is not-terrible," our Alec declared in his cheery way after playing the latest revival of the venerated real-time tactical combat series.

So it turns out Jagged Alliance: Rage is not-terrible

Y'know what? I don't hate it. Which, after 19 years of hurt (the remarkable JA2 mod scene aside), is happy progress for once-beloved turn-based mercenary combat series Jagged Alliance. There's a whole mess of things wrong with newly-announced latest comeback-apparent Jagged Alliance: Rage, but a few hours with early code has me thinking there's a lot right with its core.

Jagged Alliance returns again again with ‘Rage’ (not that one)

The ranks of the Jagged Alliance series, with its myriad sequels, remakes, expansion packs, mods-gone-pro, cancelled MMOs and unofficial spin-offs, rival only the So Solid Crew in terms of headspinning numbers and impossible-to-remember names. After a frankly turgid couple of decades, it's back once again for the one-time king of turn-based mercenary argy-bargy. Can Jagged Alliance: Rage score the Arnie-does-X-COM series a critical and/or commercial…
