Lemur80 | June 4, 2013 | Review of Brigade E5: New Jagged Union

It is difficult to say whether Brigade E-5 is a game worth buying. There is only small group of die-hard fans of this type of entertainment. This is not a game for everyone. For me, it was worth any amount of money. Just imagine Jagged Alliance in 3D, devoid of humor, but it is deadly serious dealing in all kinds of weapons and military, interesting, right?. The similarity to the Jagged Alliance is not accidental. The game consists in commanding a group of mercenaries, gaining sectors and carrying out minor or major quests. The fight takes place in "Smart Pause Mode" (the equivalent of turn-based combat in the old Jagged Alliance series). The degree of realism is really huge. Let me just say that you probably won’t see ballistic curves in any other game (except successor Brigade E-5, the game called 7.62). It's a game for total geeks fascinated by weapons. So... why are so many poor ratings? Brigade E-5 is riddled with errors like proximity fuses of sea mine. Their number and the difficulties that are caused by them are really annoying. Speaking of enemies in question, despite that the AI is not very smart, the difficulty of encounters is really high. It reminds me Men of War series. The need to constantly thinking, use of different tactics and weapons is a lot of fun. This is the essence of the game: combat. Despite the large number of errors and coarse gameplay, the fight is incredibly rewarding. So I tolerate many imperfections of this game (from outdated graphics to annoying bugs). If "gun porn" turns you on, you adore diving into the depths of military technicalities, you don’t mind spending half an hour wondering whether to sell two G 36 carbines to buy VSS Vintorez (economic topic, that’s right!), and you love tactical challenging game – take a chance! Brigade E-5 is cheap now, so I think it's really worth buying. Remember that there are many fan-made modifications (like outstanding Blue Sun Mod), which greatly improve game mechanics and gameplay itself.

The fight takes place in "Smart Pause Mode" (the equivalent of turn-based combat in the old Jagged Alliance series). The degree of realism is really huge. Mercenaries are determined by many statistics, for example adrenaline (depending on what is exactly happening on the battlefield), as well more standard characteristics: mobility, perception, strength and so on. In addition to these typical elements of RPG games, there are very complex parameters defining the functionality of small arms. It’s not only terse description, caliber info, weight, level of damage and the range of weapon. Let me just say that you probably won’t see ballistic curves in any other game (except successor Brigade E-5, the game called 7.62.)

It's a game for total geeks fascinated by weapons. So... why are so many poor ratings? Brigade E-5 is riddled with errors like proximity fuses of sea mine. Their number and the difficulties that are caused by them are really annoying. World of this game created by the developers (of the Apeiron company) is at the first contact completely unreadable. Player does not know what to do, it is not known what mechanisms control the game. You must struggle with technical problems, not the opponents.
