writes "Staff member Zachary Slater has posted his review of Jagged
Alliance 2, which was ported to Linux by Tribsoft."
Zachary's review says:
"When it comes to choosing to pick up Jagged Alliance
2, you can ask yourself if you enjoyed any similar games such as
X-Com, the original Jagged Alliance, or if you just want to support
gaming in Linux. Truth is, the currently small Linux gaming market
may not be able to afford more than one porting house. To support
this small market we really ought to buy titles (such as JA2) which
are already available, and not purchase copies of games already
available elsewhere which may become available in commercial,
boxed, form on the Linux enviroment (such as Deus Ex, Fakk 2, et
cetera). On the topic of support, if you've had problems with
previous Linux games then you may not want to purchase JA2 thinking
you can rely on the publisher for much support. From what I
understand after reading the Tribsoft forums, Titan may not be very
good in the support business. That being said, as I described
earlier it really isn't hard to install Jagged Alliance 2 and get
into the game. It should be noted that JA2 isn't a twitch game at
all. The action provided is purely graphical. You won't be required
to have quick reflexes in this battle. A sharp wit, and some
tactical skills learned in-game should be all anyone needs for an
enjoyable time playing."
