Jagged Alliance Back in Action is a contemporary remake of the latest title in the much-loved Jagged Alliance series of turn-based mercenary-themed strategy games.

Designed from the ground up to offer a modern gaming experience, Back in Action showcases an updated isometric 3D look and interface, highly detailed character models and a variety of new gameplay features. Back in Action takes players to the fictitious country of Arulco, where a ruthless dictator has seized power and only a small group of rebels stand to resist him. Tasked with freeing the island from the dictator’s iron grip, players will command rebel and mercenary forces while using tactical, diplomatic and economic tools to keep troops supplied and ready for the next flight, all while commanding them directly in nail-biting battles.

Back in Action’s innovative “plan & go” combat system combines real-time strategy (RTS) with turn-based elements to guarantee that the intricacies of tactical warfare are rendered in dynamic, exciting gameplay. This challenges would-be commanders to master not only strategy and tactical combat, but also to maximize their team’s capabilities through RPG-like character advancement.

  1. Potentially Great Game - but Extremely buggy - DO NOT BUY until patched
    by Robert White2, USA - Feb 24th 2014

    I had very hight hopes. In concept this is probably the closest game to the old JA series (which remains one of my all time favorites). The problem is that the Mac conversion just doesn't work. Read the other reviews - they are all true. Constant freezes, invisible NPC's, and many other bugs are rampant and they make this game unplayable. It's very frustrating given how good the concept could be. Please do not waste your money - wait until they patch the Mac version.

  2. Good Game - Bad Conversion to Mac
    by Tintifax, Austria - Feb 19th 2014

    Wrote a negative review before here for this game. I complained that there is a reproduceable Error at the first level where the Game hangs up EVERY time. Do NOT buy this game!!!

  3. Way too buggy
    by Sacral666, Norway - Feb 17th 2014

    Awesome game, no doubt about it.

    But the game is a bugfest. It crashes constantly that makes it impossible to play.

    E.g. it freezes when you load the game, especially after recuiting new members. I´ve tried this game through the Mac Game Store app, through Steam, and just start the gameapp itself, no changes.
    To be honest, it is not worth your money at this point. If they patch it and fix the bugs, then I will give it a higher score. If not, I hope I can get my money back, because I literally cannot play this game.
