Regardless of your feelings on the gameplay differences between Jagged Alliance 2 and the modern Jagged Alliance games, they stand up on their own.
This standalone in particular is extremely fun and the combat is in some ways the closest you'll get to the old Rainbow Six tactical breaches etc that you could plan on the map phase. It's a really great game, even if its not for everyone.
Take a look at some youtube lets plays if you're unsure and dont turn it away just because it's 'not like the old ones'

Simply this: If you're a fan of the Jagged Alliance series you will love this game. If you're a fan of interesting tactical games: you will love this game. If you're a fan of pretty much any interesting and unique game: you will love this game.
There are so many options you have while fighting, you can be stealth or just go complete berserk and everything in between. The characters are interesting and at some times, hilarious. There are so many approaches to winning each battle and beating the game itself that it is advantageous to beat the game multiple times (and it doesn't feel like a drag doing so either).

I love the Jagged Alliance games. I've played them ever since the original, and while the last one was a little hit and miss on quality, the developers really outdid themselves here.
The personalities of each man are back, and better than ever. Do you risk putting a guy on point who's been flagged for...issues, shall we say...with staying loyal to his mates? Do you risk your best shooter, or a guy who shows promise but has yet to prove himself? The choices are endless, and make this one a game you'll be playing far more than once over.
Do you ambush a patrol, or pull a Rambo and run in guns blazing - which is less risky? Also, which looks cooler, because with Jagged Alliance Crossfire, everything finally is nice to look at in real time. Explosions are fantastic, and these new winter levels make things rather interesting - snow can be your friend by silencing the approach, but could it give you away to the enemy by preserving your footsteps? Sounds are also great, and stuff has a nasty habit of getting quiet when things are about to go crazy, which never gets old.
Definitely recommended to all fans of the series, both old and new.
