Jagged Alliance 3 successfully taps into everything that made the franchise great to begin with, giving us a unique blend of genres that mixes turn-based tactical gameplay with some light RPG elements.
For the hardcore turn-based tactics fans, Jagged Alliance 3 takes the series in a great direction. Unfortunately, there is really no onboarding before the difficulty takes a steep leap.
Even though there are some balance issues, it's still a very strong comeback for Jagged Alliance series.

With all of that being said, Jagged Alliance 3 nails a lot of what it is trying to do. Gripes about financial pressure and perk points aside, the majority of gameplay is a ton of fun. It rewards tactical thinking, and with a skillful approach, you can watch your mercs absolutely rain hell down on a superior enemy force. Considerate use of special abilities and equipment is important as well, and rarely is any fight just an easy shootout. The execution isn't perfect, but Jagged Alliance 3 is simultaneously a love letter to the tactical games of old while also proving that their gameplay can still feel modern and fresh decades later.
Although the popular brand stagnated for a long time and several attempts to restore it to its former glory turned out badly, Haemimont Games broke the curse and served us an excellent full-fledged new game. With everything we loved about the first games in the series, plus some practical improvements.

The relicts of classic tactical games may be excessively uncomfortable for modern genre admirers. But all others will definitely have some brutal fun.

Jagged Alliance 3 is a bold attempt at blending the best of multiple genres. Despite success in several areas, its overbearing systems often sideline the enjoyment of an otherwise well-made game.
Jagged Alliance 3 brought us to the sequel to which the series deserves. Although the console version is a bit problematic, get ready for a great tactical strategy game that gives the player tactical freedom.

Jagged Alliance 3 still feels like a PC game on console, but works admirably under its strict control limitations.
"Jagged Alliance 3" perfects the mix of management simulation, tactical battles and role-playing elements and inspires with humorous dialogues and a constantly surprising game depth. Even if minor flaws in controls, camera work and overview in the battles are occasionally frustrating, the game is one of the best titles of the year for strategy fans. However, one drop of bitterness for all those who want to get excited about the series for the first time remains: The high level of difficulty and the very many, very poorly explained elements make the introduction to "Jagged Alliance 3" a test of patience. But if you take the time, you will definitely be richly rewarded here.

Jagged Alliance 3 is an all-around fun game that delivered exactly what we expected from it despite its flaws, which can get on our nerves, especially in the tactical part. Ultimately, though, it's not so bad that it ruins your experience of the game as a whole.

Jagged Alliance 3 manages the impossible, as Haemimont Games delivers a worthy follow-up to Jagged Alliance 2, and successfully modernizes this long dormant tactics series.
Haemimont Games had the almost impossible task to create a worthy sequel to the 1999 tactical classic. While “Jagged Alliance 3” does have some rough edges here and there, it’s easily the best turn based tactical shooter I played in 2023 and I don’t think any game will topple it.

I really like Jagged Alliance 3. I am already at 120 hours in the game and have had a lot of fun figuring it out. Even with the aspects of Jagged Alliance 3 that I was less thrilled with, I still had a lot of time with it and expect to return to the game to try out future mod content and (hopefully!) whatever DLC that Haemimont Games releases. I definitely recommend this title if you like squad-based turn-based tactical games!
Jagged Alliance 3 is a compelling blend of deep strategic gameplay, immersive storytelling, and memorable characters. Its engaging visuals, impactful choices, and captivating setting make it a must-play for tactical RPG fans and newcomers alike.
Jagged Alliance 3 may come across as your standard military strategy game that tries to take itself a little too seriously, and it is, but the game has a lot more layers to it. The game gives you many choices that impact the story and offers players plenty of variety on weapons, mercenaries and playstyles. Pity about its soundtrack.
Jagged Alliance 3 restores the glory, guts, and joy to a tactical RPG series too long abused. Realistic weapons mix with nail-biting combat, larger-than-life characters, and a challenge so good, you'll be begging for another hit.
Jagged Alliance 3 might not exactly be for people who are new to the Turn-Based Tactical genre, but it’s great for the genre’s veterans. For those who want to try it out, there might be a bit of a learning curve and you’ll definitely need some patience for it but it’s well worth it in the end for the story, brilliant visuals, hilarious commentary and the fun change of pace in gameplay while getting a fair amount of brain exercise at the same time.
If you're a turn-based strategy fan, the combat in Jagged Alliance 3 is not to be missed. Thanks to the game's varied mercenary stats, it's easy to put together a team that aligns well with your preferred personal play style and the game's combat mechanics are accessible yet suspenseful, thanks to the absence of a precise percentage-to-hit chance. While the game's dialogue feels naff in places and could've been executed better overall, it's a small price to pay for the high level of entertaining battles. And if that's your thing, Jagged Alliance 3 is sure to deliver.
