There are multiple terrain types, the mercenaries are hired and fired between missions, and Micky, the first equipment trader of the series, offers his services; for example, he may occasionally sell the player junk equipment, there

Welcome to the Jagged Alliance Wiki The collaborative encyclopedia about Jagged Alliance, that anyone can edit. We currently have 655 articles since January 2008, and growing!
This Wiki should be renamed "Jagged Alliance Series". "Jagged Alliance" should link to a description of the first title in the series. I would make these changes myself, but I don't want to break anything :P I may attempt this change at a later date (when I have fully educated myself on how to do this) Redxela Sinnak July 3, 2005 08:17 (UTC)

Unlike the original game, Back in Actionuses a combat system called "Plan & Go", which combines RTS gameplay with turn-based elements. 1. "The biggest improvement (outside of the new 3D engine and modern graphics) is that the game can either be played in a new RTS style mode, or the turn based system from the first game, or a hybrid of the two. The hybrid mode shifts from real time to turn based on criteria specified by the player. For example you can play in real time mode until you discover a mine or come across a bad guy. From there you can then switch into the game’s “Plan and Go” combat system. This mode is that you can key actions of your team together which brings out the real strength of the system. For example, let’s say you want to have one guys sneak up behind a bad guy and cut his throat but then have a sniper ready to take him out if he fails. Well you setup the actions of the first guy along a timeline along the bottom and then when you have the kill action taking plac...

During the Cold War, the South Pacific island of Metavira was the site of a series of numerous chemical and nuclear warfare experiments. Sometime later, scientists Jack Richards and his daughter Brenda discovered that the Metaviran Fallow Tree, mutated by these experiments, will produce a sap with wondrous medicinal properties that would cure any disease. These trees, rendered infertile by the same experiments that granted them their wondrous property, were quickly taken under the Richards' care, and they established a research facility on the island to research ways to turn the sap into medicine, and to find a way to solve the trees' infertility. However, one of Jack's most trusted employees, Lucas Santino, saw the value in the incredibly rare trees and sought to control them for his own gain. After convincing Jack to allow him to establish a second research facility on the other side of the island, Santino began bringing in numerous armed mercenaries, who killed the other research...Top-down turn-based tactical play based on action points.A sprawling map divided into 60 sectors.
