First off, I was bashing the devs, not your review, which was pretty good. Second, I understand that Turn-based games may be out of fashion with the bean counters, but if bean counters ran the world we wouldn't have ever gotten Simcity or Civilization, so I can't for the life of me understand why people are okay with them running the games industry. I also don't get all the excuses for the co-opting of once great turn-based franchises like X-Com and JA. You want to make a FPS with aliens? Fine - just don't call it X-Com. Don't even TRY to pass this game off as Jagged Alliance, because it's not. Had it just been called "Back in Action" and refered to as a "spiritual successor" to JA, the whole shitstorm could have been avoided.

As it is, I hope the game they call a remake and then raped the core mechanics out of, that IS NOT A GODDAMNED JAGGED ALLIANCE REMAKE, fails miserably.

I didn't think you were bashing my review, glad to read you liked it though.

I totally agree with you. I absolutely love TB games and they are consistently the games I play for years on end. And yep, Xcom FPS made me angry and I'm glad Firaxis is working on a REAL Xcom (at least it looks that way).

I do feel BiA is a remake though, it is far more similar to the original JA2 than it is different. There is good reason to believe the Currie's would have made the franchise real time at some point too. (and even if they had, I'd still have preferred it TB hehe)
