About

Even if the regime is totally inept and corrupt, don't suppose for a moment that you as the liberator will be greeted with open arms.

JAGGED ALLIANCE 2: WILDFIRE brings you back to Arulco. The population is being terrorized by a reckless army; in the meantime the main export goods are drugs. Subversion and fraudulence has infiltrated all levels of local government and the ever-present Mafia has his fingers in many pies. You are working undercover on behalf of the US government and your goal is to destroy the mighty drug cartel. You'll need a skilled hand to put together the right team of mercenaries and the negotiating skills of a diplomat to get the sceptical population on to your side. You'll also need the strategic genius of a general and the fighting tactics of a guerrilla.

Should you fail, your "client" will deny all knowledge of your existence.

Jagged Alliance 2 Awards:
GameplayAn exciting mix of strategy and role-playing that puts you in charge of a nation's fight for freedom. Your objectives are - to hire a core group of skilled professionals through A.I.M., the Association of International Mercenaries; to win the local population over to your side by displaying courage and loyalty; to train your men around the clock and then send them into dangerous missions and lethal fire fights and to conquer the depths of underground mines, reap their riches and discover their secrets. Each success will bring you closer to total victory, while each failure must be overcome with iron determination. Sometimes a tactical withdrawal can bring you more benefits than a battle for battle's sake. Retreat from one sector only to surprise the enemy by attacking on another flank. At the beginning, some of your enemy's bases may seem to be impregnable - but don't despair - you will have to become stronger step by step and slowly gain ground.FEATURES:Only the best of strategy

Jagged Alliance 2 - Wildfire reviews and comments

First Of all: I have known the JA series since its Beginnings and I still like the Game principle very much. In this Respect, I also consider JA2-W to be a good Game. Still, I can't recommend the Game. That's because of serious Bugs that ruin the Gaming Experience. I play under WIN7 and have tried it both in Compatibility Mode and without it (both as Administrator). Unfortunately, without any noticeable Difference. As soon as I switch from the tactical View to the Map, there is a Risk that the Game will start to "spin" when Returning to tactics mode. Hotkeys no longer work, Mercs can no longer be dialed individually, and the Map can no longer be scrolled. In Short: It just becomes unplayable. This Bug is even more likely to occur as soon as you switch to the Desktop in between. The Solution: Save-Leave Game-Start New-Download Game Field That I had to do 5 times within the last two Hours of The game. I feel this is a Fun Brake and Imposition and will therefore turn away from the Game disappointed. What a pity! The Background seems to be that the Developers had stopped supporting It as they felt Betrayed by the Publisher. At least that is how it has been discussed in the Forum and elsewhere in the Network.

A Pearl of Game history, perhaps the best Lap strategy game ever on the Market! How many times did you have to smile when a Mercenary has the right Saying Ready. A Game that impresses with a lot of Attention to Detail and a lot of charm. We fight with our (at the Beginning) small and completely underarmed Mercenary force (you can create a suitable Mercenary) through 200 Sectors of Enemy Land. Free Cities and Mines (Money Intake) enlarge our Squad as well as improve their Equipment: Lots of Weapons from Revolvers to Assault Rifles, Sniper tight. as Well as Mortars. Kevlervests to Night Vision devices, Hand Grenades or even Mustard Gas When the Enemy gets naughty! Moving Mines, training Guards and smacking to the best Sayings of up to 70 Mercenaries ... Magic: "Man! It would be cool if it were ' ne Slow motion ' or something. Would like to see it again very slowly, and that a few times! " Steroid: "We must not forget that we left our Enemies hidden in the Bushes, perhaps ... ah, damn hell! ' Maddog: "Those who think I would be crazy, but in Reality they are the Lunatics, at some point I'm going to pop them all off!" Razor: "Ooh, the Mutton is going to be naughty. Meum, määh, määh "Gasket:" Man, hey, the Recksding looks like when they had to take half the colon out of me, yes, because I'd gone in ' ne overdose pumpkin seeds. Uh, yeah, really looks like that. " Ivan: "Mission was Fun even if Commandant was his Idiot." Lynx: "Time for a Walk in the Valley of Death ..." And many more! Buy-have Fun!
