I found Rage pretty hard work to enjoy. Much like the mercs themselves, for every positive trait it may offer, there tends to be some frustrating problem to deal with too. The combat is rarely all that enjoyable and a game that requires so much inventory management should do so much more to make that process appeal to the player.

Jagged Alliance Rage is missing a few important features that would make it Jagged Alliance 3. It is a damn good game that is a perfect stepping stone for another in the franchise.

Despite AI issues, low Variety of Weapons and some minor problems, the core gameplay of Jagged Alliance: Rage is fun and attractive and it is successful as an spin-off game. If you like turn-based strategy games or tactical shooter games, you probably love this game. Fun gameplay elements, deep combat system and beautiful art style, made Jagged Alliance: Rage a good choice for fans of this genre and Jagged Alliance series. It is a game that worth to try.

If you're looking for a new strategy RPG to take for a spin on PlayStation 4, then Jagged Alliance: Rage is a good option. It's not going to set the genre on fire, and some might not like the reduced scope of the number of mercenaries you take you on a mission, but what's here is solid, challenging and fun.

Jagged Alliance Rage! isn’t the threequel we’ve been patiently waiting for. Instead, this is a spin off the does things a little bit differently, some of which lands and some of which doesn’t, especially on consoles. The humour and light heartedness does carry much of this game because without it, you could be playing any number of grid bound, turn based games. It’s this attitude though that makes it assuredly a Jagged Alliance game worthy of the name that’ll carry you through till 3 finally sees the light of day.

Jagged Alliance: Rage is yet another release that uses the Jagged Alliance name but fails to deliver. The turn-based gameplay and the survival elements are good enough, but in other areas there are tons of shortcomings that not only disappoints the old fans of the series but also fails to ward off competition from other turn-based titles available on the market.

It sits in a sweet spot for the genre which is just challenging enough for the hardcore to while away an afternoon on, but accessible enough for casual players to enjoy too. At £23.99 on release, it may be a little on the pricey side for what it offers, but it’s definitely one to consider, especially if you find it on sale.

The developers of Jagged Alliance: Rage! likely hoped it would rejuvenate the franchise and it might. It's a competent turn-based tactical shooter but suffers from repetitive missions and sluggish controls. Unless you're a huge fan of the genre you're unlikely to find the gameplay rewarding.

I honestly feel this game along with any other strategy turn-based games should be left on computers and mobile phones because it is easier to work with. This game is designed to have a mouse and keyboard; with just a controller it felt as if I was being held down, like being forced to put on a seatbelt at the dinner table. Overall a decent game but not my style of genre games.

Very controversial spin-off set 20 years after the first Jagged Alliance has some good points and cooperation, but it looks like mobile game with some flaws.

If it can receive modding support anywhere near the level of the original Jagged Alliance games, Rage should have a promising future ahead of it. Right now though for its full retail price? I’m going to say give it a pass.

So here Jagged Alliance Rage is, splashing around in the now dormant waters of that fountain of youth. It doesn't have scope to be the successor to JA2 that much of the Internet seems to want. It also lacks the execution and originality necessary to be the beginnings of a new generation of the long-running franchise. Any charm Rage! has is hidden under thick and ugly jungle, and undermined by its weak execution and a narrative that is at its best boring. Save yourself the rage, and look elsewhere.

Jagged Alliance: Rage offers a lot to like for fans of XCOM and other similar titles. It's one of the few games in the genre to provide a genuinely great two player co-operative experience. Whilst the game suffers from numerous bugs, a rough UI, plenty of smaller issues and overall low production values, it still manages to feel like a diamond in the rough. Don't sleep on Jagged Alliance: Rage - you might be surprised just how much fun there is to be had here.

Jagged Alliance: Rage! is a small-budget project, which clearly lacks unique features, polishing, depth and good plot. The gameplay is too monotonous and needs elements from the first games of the series. Hopefully, THQ Nordic will allocate more funds and find professional developers for a full-fledged Jagged Alliance continuation in the future.

Jagged Alliance: Rage! is not worth experiencing much. You will feel that this game hasn't aged well and there aren't many innovations to bring it back to glorious days of this series, and because of that Jagged Alliance: Rage! is a big failure and gets the lowest possible place among the story-based titles of this series of tactical games.

Even if you've exhausted all other options and are desperate for another turn-based strategy game on PS4, don't give the sluggish, buggy and downright ugly Jagged Alliance: Rage a second thought. XCOM 2 this most certainly isn't.

I'm really struggling to find anything good to say about Jagged Alliance: Rage, other than that its name is appropriate. I suppose the stealth mechanic sort of works, although even there occasionally your sneaky work can be ruined by a patrolling soldier somehow glitching and eternally clambering on and off a rock instead of completing his route. Each playable character has a background trait that is supposed to play out as a weakness but that you rarely notice in play. The characters you choose to play seem irritated by one another, and by everything going on around them all the time. I've got to say, I think it's pretty understandable.
