So here Jagged Alliance Rage is, splashing around in the now dormant waters of that fountain of youth. It doesn’t have scope to be the successor to JA2 that much of the Internet seems to want. It also lacks the execution and originality necessary to be the beginnings of a new generation of the long-running franchise. Any charm Rage! has is hidden under thick and ugly jungle, and undermined by its weak execution and a narrative that is at its best boring. Save yourself the rage, and look elsewhere.
This is a game that could have benefited greatly from another year or so in development. What is here is fun but it’s brought down by technical issues and strange gameplay elements. While the moments where you successfully take out an entire camp from the shadows stands out as a highlight, you have to slog through so much to get to that point that it hardly seems worth it.
The depth offered in terms of the tactical combat and exploration largely impressed considering the scope of the project, and we enjoyed the retro vibe along with the cheesy dialogue, but somehow Jagged Alliance: Rage! never clicked in the way that the best tactics games do, and so while genre and franchise fans may well enjoy what it has to offer, we don't think anyone's going to call this one a classic in years to come.
