Obscure, Buggy, quirky, funky UI, no tutorial, steep learning curve...but, wow, I havent had this much fun since discovering mount and blade : warband....similar game but in a modern setting...open world....picked up this game on a whim for $5...best $5 I have spent in a long time....a mix of an RPG adventure game, tactical battle sim and sandbox strategy game....micro manage your battles down to the 1/100th of second....fiddle with your equipment and loadout to your hearts desire...make sure you start with the Blue Sun Mod and Merc 1.2 mod installed...watch some Ninja2dan's Lets Play Vids....read some of the walkthrus posted and you will be good to go....takes some time to learn the game....virtually no instructions or help available except for the few diehards posting here....


· Perfect Combination of RPG/Sandbox/Tactical Battle Sim/Squad Building & Progression

o RPG: Loose yourself in a Fictional Modern S. America setting. Character & squad stat progression, interesting text based quest/story line missions.

o Sandbox: Establish a base of operations whereby you can send out militia to take control of towns, freedom of action to do quests, raids, random encounters, etc.. Light strategy and economy, options. Maybe you are cut out to be your own faction leader and establish regional control over the nearby towns and villages...

o Tactical Battle Sim: This is the meat of the game. Engage in a thrilling firefight with various factions. Stop and go, pauseable RTS action that is a good compromise between real time and turn based tactical management. The detail is absolutely amazing: Reaction times, visibility, ammo, burst rates, mobility, positioning, line of sight and field of fire, aim/fire options, morale, wound care, weapons, weapons and more weapons. Save often, because you will be replaying game saves when you die…

o Squad Building: Manage your team, equipment, progression, etc..

· Detailed: Everything is represented: 100’s of weapons, combat, tactics, actions, ammunition types, loads of variety.

· Immersive

· A great many options and a variety of things to do

· Compelling, addictive game play…hard to put down.

· Semi destructible environment. Watch things explode or accumulate damage.


o Frequent crashes and game freezes. Save often. Some have found this a deal killer, but once you come to expect it, I don’t think it a huge issue…minor annoyance.

o Unintuitive gameplay. The game is not polished and the quests are a bit buggy or finicky. You may have to do watch Ninja2dan’s youtube videos or read Ssanders walkthru’s to get an idea how to play.

o Obscure company and game: Translation from Russian to English is rough. The base game is somewhat broken. Adding the fanbased Blue Sun Mod and Mercpocalypse 1.2 add ons are a must.

o Dated Graphics.

o Camera is clunky. You have to work around some camera angles. Manageable but annoying.

Update: I now have over 50 hours in this game...loving it....I dont know how i missed this game when it first came out...perfect blend of an RPG Sandbox and a Tactical Battle Sim....the detail is amazing....

Advice to folks who want to get started:
Watch Ninja2dan's 2nd and 14th 7.62 video in his series on youtube.
Read over ssander's chapter 6 pdf walkthru on Bennie and Clive. Look for link under the thread about walkthur's.
***Ninja2dan's 2nd video and the walkthru on Bennie and Clive will get you Paquito and Bennie as free team members.

I've been looking for something like this for years. Its like a 3d jagged alliance 2 (the best TBT game ever made). Huge amount of depth, variety, customization, gun porn, extreme detail. Its like my dream TBT.

But its also extremely buggy. I can't play the game in certain resolutions because the menu screen for shops/searching objects comes up black and won't function. The game also likes to crash and the mouse likes ♥♥♥♥ing up. If you loved JA2, you will love this. Otherwise, its too buggy to be enjoyable.

you can divide my time in this game as so:

30% playing the game -- acting out quests, shooting the bad guys, trekking the maps, etc.
30% selecting what guns to use -- there are so many freakin guns. i spend an equal amount of time looting and reorganizing as i do killing folk.
15% reloading saves because i did not like the outcome of the particular firefight, you can't always do good but you can always do better.
10% searching the interweb for help on quests, usually only finding it in russian or polish forums. only very common problems are solved in english. but google translate is cool.
5% "i wonder what happens if i......."
5% dealing with bugs
5% learning russian from my companions

Fun, Challenging, Satisfying, Funny (maybe I'm sick...)
Occasional bugs, Low-Quality production, the controls oh my goodness the controls...

7,62 High Calibre requires patience, focus, liquor, tactics, patience, patience, liquor, tactics.
Personally, I found it fun. The story is lackluster, the characters are a joke, there are however some funny dialogues.
I believe it's called the Blue Sun mod, improves the game but i personally have not installed it.

The game is far better than the trailer makes it out to be.

I'm only reccommending it for a certain type of people -- the people who bothered to stumble upon the game anyways.

(Note, this review is for Brigade E6: 7,62 High Calibre with the Hard Life Addon)

In a nutshell: ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Блять

In depth: 7,62 Hard Life is a 100% slav-certified content and mechanics overhaul to the slavtastic CTD operating-operationally Real-Time-With-Pause simulator Brigade E6: 7,62 (yurop and ,'s instead of .'s) High Calibre (or just 7,62 High Calibre in some locales). There's more than enough real life firearms and things that want to be firearms to satisfy even the greatest of autists and here's a real game that lets you live out your innawoods fantasies, removing kebab with obrez, RPG-7V and RPK and making Mikhail Kalashnikov (PBUH) proud from his home in vodka-heaven.

Weapons have relatively realistic ranges, such as shotguns with slugs, flechettes or 00-buckshot having more that five inches of effective range and Jamal's AKM being able to hit people even at 100 yards given enough dakka used. Everything from ♥♥♥♥-diddly ♥♥♥♥ grip Makarov-PM in steel case 9x18mm to ivan YES 7.62x54mmR glorious russian have their own effective ranges, but rounds fired still go places, and that includes places you don't want them to go. If you don't follow the four cardinal rules of firearm safety you are going to make Jeff Cooper cry and hit some poor mexican peasant because you FORGOT TO BE AWARE OF WHAT'S BEHIND YOUR TARGET.

You can also tacticool many weapons to your inner-operator's content, like adding suppressors (which you have to find the proper caliber ones for your guns), lasers, flashlights, night-fighting equipment, bayonets, grenade launchers, KAC masterkeys, optics in red-dot, reflex, combat scopes, sniper scopes and so forth of multiple actual brands, models, sizes and mounts. Yes, unless you get the proper adaptors, your weaver rail mount ♥♥♥♥ will NOT go on your factory stock AK-74M. Rifle is fine, comrade. Different types of magazines fit in similar guns, like FAL magazines fitting in FAL derivatives, 75-round RPK drums fitting in regular AKMs, Beretta M951 mags going into Beretta M9s, etc. Basically every weapon, type of ammo, grain of dirt, etc. in the game has information on it, and firearms especially have stats like weight, accuracy at various ranges, durability, aftermarket acceptance, balance, rate of fire, time-to-ready and so forth that you have to pay attention to when you decide which one(s) work best for your various mercs and characters. If I haven't convinced you yet that this game is maximum operator yet then I don't know what will.

Another 'tistic aspect is that even the individual rounds of ammo play a part, with ♥♥♥♥♥♥ locally produced rounds having crap gunpowder and thus less velocity and less penetration, and top-tier FMJ or HP rounds from actual arsenals being the go-to for operating. Thus not only is it important to nab clean, reliable firearms and magazines that aren't beat up, it's also important to keep those mags loaded with good ammo or you're going to be jamming so hard you'll think you're at a punk rock concert. Basically, there's a lot more mechanics-wise in the game than you'd think and the manual only tells you so much, and unless you can read slav runes (Russian) the forums aren't really going to help you too much.

The game itself has rather unique mechanics, being real-time with pause and all. Instead of other turn-based tacticool games like Jagged Alliance, 7,62 has everyone take their actions simultaneously, with all actions measured in seconds, with hip-fire shots taking less time and shots-through-optics taking much more. This does make things like soloing fights more viable, as instead of shooting one poor ♥♥♥ mook every turn and then being buried under a pile of incoming fire when it's the enemies' turn, you get to blap blap Jamal and Paco continuously as they ♥♥♥♥ their pants and fire their glock-40 problem solvers sideways, making things like cover, concealment and proper positioning all the more relevant. Fights can and will be determined based on who has the drop on who, and you actually have to pay attention to force multipliers like suppressive fire, optics, numbers, good positioning and so forth, or die in extremely painful for you ways. Grenades track individual fragments from the explosion, different types of ammunition can be loaded in the same magazine, the NIJ rating of body armor actually matters, shooting someone in the arm is less likely to kill them than in center mass, etc.

There's also a lot more into the game like finding, maintaining and inevitably losing cars (seriously, the breakdown rate on some of them is atrocious), maintaining your firearms (i.e. if you don't know the exact sequence to disassemble an M14 off the top of the top of your head you're screwed unless you have a cleaning kit), cleaning your ammo, keeping fed and watered, making sure to sleep so you don't go into shock for 5 minutes because you got grazed by .22LR, actually making sure to talk to everyone you meet or else you don't get the best results for quests, killing people you don't like, making weapons caches and pretending you're a mexican drug cartel, spending far too much time and money trying to keep your cars fuelled and fixed, and much much more.

Story-wise the game gets kinda weird. Basically you're sent into a banana republic after you just got done ruining the neighboring banana republic (in Brigade E5: New Jagged Union) and you're being paid to find some slav thief who tried to steal money from a buncha Russian banker dudes, kick his balls in and bring him or proof of his death to your employers for lods of emone. If you play Hard Life (which comes with the base game as a separate game on Steam and is in my opinion a lot better, if not harder) then you start out in the camp of a buncha commie-wannabe revolutionaries and you have to fight your way to begin the actual main storyline.

Regardless, along the way you get to work for the gommies or the gubmint, suck ♥♥♥♥♥ for firearms licenses (just like in New York), start a peasant rebellion, help out a bunch of hapless average Joes and kill more people than Simo Hayha and Vasili Zaitsev combined. You can work alone or hire a bunch of mercs who charge far too much for their services and even with a bunch of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ AIs every now and then. You can make money by killing bandits and rebels and selling their ♥♥♥♥, opening up a gun store, taking over and running a gold mine, smuggling liquor and gold ore between two countries and so much more.

There are downsides to having this much slav magic packed into one game, though. The game crashes so often you could probably record it on dashcams and make a Youtube compilation on it, the voice acting (what little of it you hear) is terri-bad, being a Russian game and all (think Men of War tier, just not THAT bad), a lot of the game, especially in Hard Life, remains either untranslated from slav runes or consists of Google-translate tier bad work. Enjoy having your magazines labelled "clips" half of the time and "magazines" the other half. There's very little documentation so many of the game mechanics will be figured out through trial-and-error, reading guides or forums, crying like a ♥♥♥♥♥ or hoping to the vodka god that things work. There's also a lot of glitches, some of which are potentially game or quest breaking, and if you play Hard Life it's probably a good idea to set manual saves in combat to "unlimited" in the config tool or you're going to wear out your F5 and F9 keys, as well as your LMB, from clicking "load game" so often. Be sure to save often as the game CAN AND WILL crash to desktop if you so much as look at it funny or even if it has been running so long. You may also run into terrible framerate lags, especially in towns, and I don't know of any fix. In fact, even the devs don't know how to fix some of the problems, but they sure try.

Since I'm running out of characters, I'll tl;dr this: Slavtastic OPERATING simulator 10/10

It is what JA: Back in action should have been. More guns, mods, combine 2 mags with ductape, create tripwires.

Challening gun play with the most detailed combat system on this kind of games.

If you are a fan of tactical shooters, you really should give this a try.

Steam version also comes with an easy way to install much needed community mods (Blue Sun Mod) and patches. See the sticky in the game forum. You might want to give vanilla a try first to get into the story line. The mods seems to make it more sandboxy, not that there is anything wrong with that.

I have had problems running the game on Windows 7 in the GOG version. But this version seems to run fine on Windows 7.

Update: Game has had some issues. But publisher and mod developer has released day 1 patch when I posted crash log. One time it was crash and another time it was wrong translation in the mod.

I have played the vanilla more than my game time says on Steam, game is new on Steam but its an elder gem of a game.
