About This Game

Jagged Alliance is back – and it is all about the unique mix of turn based tactics, fierce battles, squad management and crazy mercenary personalities.

It is 1988 on the Caribbean island group of San Hermanos. A corrupt leader has the islands in his grasp ... yet a group of rebels fights for democratic values and freedom. However, once the head of the rebels is arrested, the insurgents quickly dissolve. Arriving on the island, the player’s mission is to help the rebellion before things take a turn for the worse.

Take control of your own band of mercenaries, lead them into battle and manage your resources wisely. Fight back for freedom, sector by sector, turn by turn. Like the original Jagged Alliance series, Jagged Alliance Flashback gives you the choice to use your preferred tactics and build your squad around it – rush in with heavy armed troops or take the high road of distance shots and sniping.

More features and content will be added on a regular basis, and together with your feedback and support we will shape this game to be the best Jagged Alliance game yet! Please feel free to give us your comments, your thoughts and your recommendations. We listen to every one of you.

As Full Control has come to an end, not too long after the game's release, I cannot seriously recommend this game to anyone, not even hardcore JA fans or enthusiasts of the genre. If anything, this half-finished game will make them bawl their eyes out.

The devs didn't deliver on many of their promises for the game, and it shows in the lack of features and game world interactions. Painfully minimal, there's no more banter between mercs, NPCs are jokes or avatars of backers who serve no real purpose in the game world, other than as glorified interactive credits. They barely got working merchants into the game, post release.

Don't buy this game. I backed it, and regret the decision. After Full Control's insolvency and dissolution, there's no further support from developers, no further hope of getting a finished game and have the myriad of bugs fixed and promised features implemented.

The game will forever remain a half-finished, misspelled love letter to the franchise.

Small budget Kickstarter-funded game that is missing a lot of what made prior games in the series what they were. Underwhelming, but playable, ultimately completely undermined by the behavior of the studio behind it who have engaged in things like threatening to stop supporting the game if customers didn't remove negative Steam reviews. While those who backed this $20 USD game on kickstarter had to pay $25, I would say this game is worth buying perhaps at $5 and only, then, if you have nothing else on your plate.

Even though I quite enjoyed playing this tilte, I simply cannot recommend it. Yes the combat was pretty good when attacking sectors but defending them was a chore.

The AI was'nt the best, the interface clunky to say the least. I suppose it due lack of money and sales. The developer this week has annouced they are stopping developing more titles, and mainly supporting there other title Space Hulk Accession. You may get some enjoment if the title is dirt cheap, ie if like squad based TBS.

I did'nt help using the name Jagged Alliance as people have higher expections due to previous JA2 using the 1.13 mod.

Could've been a good game.
I love turn based strategy and have tried this a few times. I have fun while playing until the game starts sending enemies to my locations. Then a full on random number generator decides the fate of the battle. You might win, you might not, doesn't seem to depend too much on the skill nor gear of your troops.
Quit a few times I needed to run across the whole map to reclaim my territory because my veterans with excellent gear were massacred.

That made me stop playing.

Sadly a very, very much missed opportunity.

Ok let's be honest here, I love Turn-Based games and I remember playing Jagged Alliance 2 when I was a kid.. But this here.... I tried, I really REALLY tried to like this game, but there is nothing to like about this game. It is shallow, not only shallow it is bare, empty... it is a empty void with few shells that are the "game". AI if one may even call it that way is next to non-existent. Enemies will just charge you head-on. Shops are only on several places, almost no loot, no interaction with environment. No character customization, no nothing. The arsenal of those few weapons that are currently present in the game won't save it either. The gameplay is extremely boring and by boring I mean you will enjoy more fun by throwing money out of the window than using them to buy this bad joke of a game. It feels unfinished it feels rushed it feels unpolished it feels rigid and empty. If you love Turn-Based games grab a Wasteland 2 or something especially if it's on sale. Keep your hands off of this... 2/10...
