C&C Classics, perchance reborn?

02 May 2019 - 06:18 AM

EA and Petrogylph have decided to remaster the original Command & Conquer and Command & Conquer: Red Alert series. With the "promise" of no added DLC.... What's your thoughts? Can one if not the best RTS games of all time be made again in 2019? I hope so.

Jagged Alliance Rage

02 May 2019 - 05:58 AM

After all the years of new developers and publishers we finally get a successor to Jagged Alliance 2!
Finally we get back to the roots of one of the best turn-based game franchises ever made!
Wait a second....Where's my laptop? Where's A.I.M.? Custom Characters? Oh fuck here we go again....

Jagged Alliance Rage, a game with a new developer, a new publisher, A New Hope....?

Nope, we get a half-assed  attempt at "maybe this time...." kind of unproductive nostalgia.

Summary

Moronic A.I., Voice acting is shit, RPG elements completely stripped. Bugs aplenty, despite the patch (which I doubt there'll be many).
The "maps" aren't very engaging or large. The music, is "meh" and the graphics are a nice touch.

Unless this game series is purchased and rebooted by a competent developer/publisher, buy at your own risk.
I find it strange that a company would purchase the rights to a game series only to produce such a piece of shit product.

3.5 out of 10.
