Nothing makes me happy like a turn-based strategy game – tinkering with tactics and strategies is my therapy. Heroes of Might & Magic, the original Fallouts, and Jagged Alliance 2 are just some of the titles to claim many hours of my free time over the last few years. So, having recently learned of on an online version of Jagged Alliance, aptly named Jagged Alliance Online, I jumped at the chance to spearhead the review and (hopefully) plunge many hours into that game too.
Jagged Alliance Online requires no downloads, and can be played entirely on your browser thanks to the power of the Unity engine. Upon starting the game, I was immediately taken aback by the well polished visuals, which are especially impressive for a browser-based game. Jagged Alliance Online is living proof of how far browser-based games have come; from improved graphical presentation to the ability to incorporate sound effects to substantially enhance gameplay; because who doesn’t love an authentic sounding explosion when they shoot an oil barrel?
The game throws you straight into a tutorial mission, which has you battle through various enemies before meeting up with a colleague, who then accompanies you in the rescue of a third mercenary. This tutorial introduces you to the turn-based action and does a competent job at explaining the simple things, such as how to effectively make use of your Action Points (AP), as well as explaining the more complex actions, like dealing with an enemy that’s in cover.
