About the Game

Even if the regime is totally inept and corrupt, don't suppose for a moment that you as the liberator will be greeted with open arms.

JAGGED ALLIANCE 2: WILDFIRE brings you back to Arulco. The population is being terrorized by a reckless army; in the meantime the main export goods are drugs. Subversion and fraudulence has infiltrated all levels of local government and the ever-present Mafia has his fingers in many pies. You are working undercover on behalf of the US government and your goal is to destroy the mighty drug cartel. You'll need a skilled hand to put together the right team of mercenaries and the negotiating skills of a diplomat to get the sceptical population on to your side. You'll also need the strategic genius of a general and the fighting tactics of a guerrilla.

Should you fail, your "client" will deny all knowledge of your existence.

Gameplay

An exciting mix of strategy and role-playing that puts you in charge of a nation's fight for freedom. Your objectives are - to hire a core group of skilled professionals through A.I.M., the Association of International Mercenaries; to win the local population over to your side by displaying courage and loyalty; to train your men around the clock and then send them into dangerous missions and lethal fire fights and to conquer the depths of underground mines, reap their riches and discover their secrets. Each success will bring you closer to total victory, while each failure must be overcome with iron determination. Sometimes a tactical withdrawal can bring you more benefits than a battle for battle's sake. Retreat from one sector only to surprise the enemy by attacking on another flank. At the beginning, some of your enemy's bases may seem to be impregnable - but don't despair - you will have to become stronger step by step and slowly gain ground.

No Tutorial. No Advice. Just hardcore old school gaming. Sit down son, if you are ready for a challenge, give this goldie a spin. Don't mind those ♥♥♥♥♥ saying "boohoo original JA2 was better", Wildfire is improved and you can get mods for it, same as vanilla JA2 was. Before you lay hand on Back in Action, consider this one, 1000 times better and still the best RTS/RTT out there!

19 Hours in on steam, Many 100+ hours on my old pc, Pre-Steam

This is maybe to old for some people, but some of us grew up with Fallout 1&2, Jagged alliance, Diablo and i, to this day hold SHADOWRUN pretty high on my favorite game list! Than this game, from 2004 hit me right on the spot
if you not gonna put your time into this game, dont bother. If you like try and fail, not affraid to just be put right into the battlefield and not know if you made up the right team or not, setting up tactical situations, and be extra proud when you pull of smashing trough tough enemy defencives, than THIS GAME IS FOR YOU!
I love this game! This is OLD SCHOOL. IF YOU NOT UP TO THE CHALLENGE, GO BACK TO CALL OF DUTY
if you get the hang of it, its gonna be one of those game's you remember for the rest of your life

If you haven't played Jag to death, go do that.

Then, come play Wildfire.

A mercenary/revolution/coup simulator.

If you have the patience for it, this game is STILL an absolute champion-belt and -title defending classic.

Instead of going on about how this is a classic (which it is) let me offer a warning: Like most older games, it doesn't play well with Windows 8 x64. Don't bother unless you have a workaround.

EDIT: There is a fix that has worked for me so far. Check the game's forum.
