Fight For Freedom - Kill For Cash

A ruthless dictator has taken control of the tiny nation of Arulco. The country's large army has a terrified population in its iron grip, its only opposition a ragtag bunch of rebels. The bad news: you're in charge of the rebels. The good news: some of the world's best mercenaries will fight on your side... if you can afford them.

Ahead lies a savage struggle for freedom. To win, you'll need the negotiating skills of a diplomat, the strategic genius of a general, the battle tactics of a commando... and a whole lot of guts.

Reviews:

Just Adventure by Gary Nelvin

"As for production value, Jagged Alliance 2 keeps things pretty simple. The graphics are simple with no lens flare. They do their job, however, and the gory animations are great. The sound is a bit more up-to-date, though. I've already raved about the excellent voice acting, and the other sound effects aren't too shabby either. Different types of guns have distinct sounds, and heavy weapons sound especially cool.

" As you can probably tell by now, there's a lot in Jagged Alliance 2, and it would take forever to say everything about it. You're probably thinking the simple fun of the original is gone. Well, it's not. The game takes all these complex elements and molds them together so well that you don't even think about them while playing. Sometimes I forget I have a country to save and just try crazy stuff like we all did in the first game. Probably the most complex thing you have to think about is when to quit--this game is so involving underneath, yet so simple on top. It won't appeal to everyone right away, but spend some time with it and it will have you hooked."

The Wargamer by Mike Dorn

"Despite its few blemishes, I would say Jagged Alliance 2 is the best turn-based tactical wargame to arrive since X-Com. Piled on its challenging and enjoyable tactical combat are heaping helpings of personality and liberal doses of strategic choices and decisions. The sum of the whole is a game I rank among my favorites."
