About the Game

Job well done, soldier! The island of Arulco is free; however, there are other countries under the shadow of war that are ignored by the rest of the world. Khanpaa, a peaceful and tranquil nation, is being held in the terrifying iron grip of a group of paid mercenaries…yet the United Nations looks the other way. UN ambassador Behnam Atiqullah tries to help his home country, but there is not much he can do. Military intervention from a major world power seems not to be an option and Khanpaa appears all alone…

That’s where YOU come in! As the strategic genius behind your own personal Private Military Corporation, you’ve offed to help by bringing in your team of skilled mercenaries to retake the tormented nation of Khanpaa! Help the oppressed people by hiring a team of hardened guns-for-hire and prepare for battle in treacherously frozen mountain badlands. Along the way, discover why Khanpaa has been turned into a bloody battlefield and who aims to truly profit.

Jagged Alliance: Crossfire is a stand-alone expansion to the hit tactical RPG – Jagged Alliance: Back in Action. Crossfire adds new mercenaries, new environments and new weapons to challenge the player’s battlefield planning skills, while offering the combination of humorous dialog and realistic combat fans have come to expect from the series’ decade-long history.

  • 10 new mercenaries round out your team, offering a roster of more than 50 unique combatants with unique skills, weaknesses and quirky personalities
  • 10 new maps, set in the unforgiving, frozen mountainous countryside will challenge your planning skills – rocky mountain terrain, narrow valleys and icy cliffs will provide new cover opportunities, chokepoints and offer optimum ambush points
  • 15+ hours of gameplay across a brand new campaign with a broad variety of missions
  • New weapons, enemies and equipment – supplies are scarce, and your mercenaries will have to make the most of outdated weapons, limited supplies and equipment

Great game. One of its kind. Only issue I have with the game is the camera at some times, not a big deal however.

What the hell is Jagged Alliance: Crossfire?

Well, it's a turn based action, tactical game, similar to Commandos, Desperados, X-Com Series.... Once more you are in control of a Mercenary Organisation Killers for Hire :D, select your mercs carefully amongst many available to you, some will work well together others dispite each other so pick them accordingly. You mission (Campaign) if you accept it, is to liberate a country (somewhere in the Middle East) from a tyranic Warlord (terrorist, dictator, a threat to freedom...bla bla bla ), the country is divided into small regions which you have to free successively in order to gain access to the next region. Once liberated, the region will provide you with a monthly income to help you in your war effort...nothing is free...even freedom.

You can then hire the local mob to protect the freshly liberated region, equiping them with guns, armors and training so they can eventualy repel attacks from the Warlord, in an attempt to recapture it.
The concept looks interesting, but the implementations is terrible, game interface not intuitive at all, jerky characters, clunky movements, irresponsive commands (death guaranty during gunfights), dodgy enemy AI they see you coming from miles away even when you don't make any noises, some characters skills have apparently have absolutly no effects, enemies shoot at you from crazy angles in which you can't shoot back and many other annoying things like no way to accelerate time if not in World Map, team lose postions when you tab out of world map, 100 reloads because the game decided to save at stupid time, usualy just before i get crippled with enemy bullets.
I finished the Game in over 30 hours, completing 90% of the side quests too short and too much frustrations to ever play it again. Shame really cose i kinda liked the concept.
The game could have been so much better if devs have taken more care, no patch to fix many bugs.
Also many achievements don't work.
Overall, if you have Jagged Alliance 2 then stick with it, because JA crossfire isn't worth your time.

I really really wanted to like this game. Jagged Alliance 2 is one of my all time favorites. But this game falls short of it's lineage. It's not terrible, but's it's missing some of the personality that made JA2 great.

I've found it very fun, however it is my first game in the Jagged Alliance series. I completely understand the hatred of a 'casualization' of a game, as a lot of metacritic reviews seem to be suggesting, but from what I've experienced, it's fun, has depth, and is rather unique in gameplay compared to the long list of video games I've played. I also got it from one of those $ bundles, and I feel like it was a very pleasant surprise. I wouldn't go against picking this game up for even $10. Just for the sake of it, I've been playing on hard mode with tactical mode engaged. It does have a bit of a learning curve, but I have been finding it to be rewarding.

An old one I had sitting in my library. Not the greatest of the Jagged Alliance series. Completed it back in 2012. Thought I'd go back and finish off the achievements. Ba Bow!
The achievements are broken, whatever happened between now and 2012 has now made all the achievements, unachievable.
From some of the forums I've found there are supposedly 9 that don't work, but I have found that none are now working.
Also to note, in the game play you can zoom in and out but can't pan around. A total ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ if some goodies are under a walkway. You can see them but can't get them.
Serve myself right I guess for going back on an achievement hunt.
Although I didn't mind this game, I'm going to give it the thumbs down for the two reasons above.

Enjoyed it just like JA:BIA. Gameplay is the same, but new environments. Shorter than JA:BIA, but it costs less too. Recommended if you liked BIA
