Ships Ahoy - Jagged Alliance - Back in Action

Steam now offers Jagged Alliance - Back in Action, the Jagged Alliance 2 remake. Here's an overview of the game:

Designed from the ground up to offer a modern gaming experience, Back in Action showcases an updated isometric 3D look and interface, highly detailed character models and a variety of new gameplay features. Back in Action takes players to the fictitious country of Arulco, where a ruthless dictator has seized power and only a small group of rebels stand to resist him. Tasked with freeing the island from the dictator’s iron grip, players will command rebel and mercenary forces while using tactical, diplomatic and economic tools to keep troops supplied and ready for the next flight, all while commanding them directly in nail-biting battles.

Back in Action’s innovative “plan & go” combat system combines real-time strategy (RTS) with turn-based elements to guarantee that the intricacies of tactical warfare are rendered in dynamic, exciting gameplay. This challenges would-be commanders to master not only strategy and tactical combat, but also to maximize their team’s capabilities through RPG-like character advancement.

Ah, yeah! Why haven't they expanded on this franchise? I know they made money. I love the games but the robot mech suits kind of ruined it a bit.

For the record, games by that same company, using various generations of the Silent Storm Engine:

Silent Storm
Silent Storm: Sentinels
Hammer and Sickle
Nightwatch(available in the US)
Daywatch(not available in the US? I can't find it)

Be forewarned, if you have 4gigs or more of RAM, and run Win7, you will have to fiddle with these games, due to Starforce DRM. It took a google search, a trip to game copyworld, and changing a value via hex editor to make them all run on my new comp. Walkthroughs of this procedure are available all over. Total time, like 10 minutes or less, depending on how bad you might rage at first.

More on topic: I pre-ordered JA:BiA... it's pretty fun, a few bad typos/translations aside.. JA2 fanatics are going to bitch and moan, but what can you do. JA:BiA reminds me more of Soldiers of Anarchy the more I play it, and less of JA2 or Silent Storm, etc. Real time with pausing, with well implemented order queues, militia members to outfit, mercs to train up, diamond mines to exploit in the name of more guns and mercs... it isn't a bad game.

As others have said, those DLCs are the preorder bonuses, which can be ignored really. A gun and a camo suit, which are nice at first but quickly outclassed, although they do look good. There was also a day one patch with some decent changes/fixes, hopefully they will continue to support/upgrade the game.
