Jagged Alliance 2 is a squad focused turnbased strategy game with (slight) roleplaying elements that did a lot right and very little wrong. In what it does it is – up to now – unequalled. You are the leader of a band of mercenaries that are hired by Arulco’s ex-President Enrico Chivaldori to re-take this fictious third world country from the hands of Deidranna Reitman  who turned it into a vicious totalitarian dictatorship. You start the game by creating your own personal mercenary and hire additional mercenaries to join your squad (from first one, then two internet based agencies). Unlike the similar X-com these mercenaries aren’t nameless soldiers, but complete characters with different abilities, skills, personalities (that can and will clash) and likes/dislikes.
