French language and Steam trading cards added

Vanilla game can now be played in French language! Note: if you wish to play the modded version, leave the language set to English since French version of the BSM mod is not yet available.

And in case you didn't know this already, Steam trading cards for the game are also active. Some players reported that the cards dropped only from vanilla game (modded one uses custom launcher) so you can temporarily switch to vanilla in case the cards don't drop for you while playing the modded version. Enjoy!

    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.

    You are a mercenary in small Latin American country during a revolution. Your main contract is to hunt down Russian businessmen, and while doing that you will eather protect the govermnent or help the bunch of bearded men with Kalashnokovs to take over the country.

    Well, this is not a new game. In fact, it was released in 2009, so don't expect up-to-date graphics. Its gameplay is what makes this game unique. It's the most realistic tactical simulator in the world. The closest example is new JA.
    Second strength of 7.62 High Caliber is guns. There are tons of guns (pistols, assault rifles, shotguns, smgs, machine guns, rifles, sniper rifles) and lots of attachements (scopes, colimators, laser sights, flashlights, grips, grenade launchers).
    So, if you are looking for realistic tactical simulator with enormous range of guns - this is the game.

    P.S. I would also recomment checking out Hard Life and Arma Realista mods. Hard LIfe makes game more varied, add more capabilities; Arma Realista makes range of guns more authentic for Latin American region (how about 20 types of AK and 15 clones of Colt 1911?)

    7,62 High Calibre would be a great game except for the random crashes to desktop. No error messeges just click on an item, NPC or get shot and bam there is the desktop. All I can say is "Save, save again and save some more." Dispite the random crashes 7,62 High Calibre is fun and interesting to play. A Mod is also included just opt in on the beta properties menu. Read the Forum pin topic to learn more. I have not tried the Mod myself. I have noticed the crash problem is a little less frequent in a lower resolution 1280x720 and compatibility mod set to WinXP SP2.

    Probably the best real-time JA2 clone I've played. It has much of the deep modelling that JA2 had that very few recent tactical games have had, e.g. new XCom - which was a great game, but didn't do as much to sate the micromanagement itch of obsessively modelling character states and subtle differences in ammunition types. Lots of weapons and weapon-related stats.

    Also very tough, as it befits the genre. The stunning mechanic when being hit and the adrenaline mechanic that penalizes your accuracy when there's a lot of near misses flying around as well as other mechanics make life very challenging when outnumbered (which is pretty much always). Even fairly novice characters will hit targets at optimal weapon range if left alone, so you really need a plan to be successful in game.

    Game has some stability issues (save often - though you'd do that regardless), some interface issues and a plot that doesn't really make sense, but it's also incredibly fun for those who like the JA2 mechanical formula and are compulsive about micromanaging for tiny advantages.
