When you start to play 7.62 High Calibre you think about other, pretty popular games - Jagged Alliance. It's not as fun as old JA games but it's much better than new ones. While I absolutely love tactics games like this one, there are just way too many bugs to have fun with vanilla version of 7.62 High Calibre. It's not a short game, I have spend around 20 hours in it and I still haven't completed it. People who enjoyed JA games, or X-COM/UFO or other tactical games, must at least try it. It can be a little hard at beggining but there is amazing guide on Steam. Also, be sure to install The Blue Sun Mod - it will fix many of 7,62 High Calibre bugs.
This game could be exactly what you're looking for, if what you're looking for is a highly detailed and highly realistic spiritual successor to the Jagged Alliance series -- for a lot of us, though, the game can be quite off-putting. Firstly, the game's by a Russian developer, and like all lower-budget kind of games, the translation to English isn't especially great. It's not a huge problem, though. Secondly, the game is quite glitchy. In fact, the devs actually recommend all players download a community made game patch, but of course, that doesn't fix everything. Lastly, the documentation is incredibly long. This can be a major turn-off. In a game which aims to be incredibly realistic, that means dealing with the convoluted and slightly counter-intuitive, which makes reading the entire manual essentially a requirement. There are a lot of mods floating around for the game, and as mentioned, the devs actually recommend one of them if you check the Steam forums. Though the game is glitchy, it's by no means as bad as JA: Back in Action. The modding community is kind of active too, which is amazing for a lower-budget overseas title from 8 years ago. So what are the main features? Well, like mentioned, the game's incredibly realistic. Reloading involves taking out the clip, dragging ammo into it, then replacing it. In battle, this obviously isn't an option, so you have to rely on looting clips from enemies, reloading them, and storing them in pockets -- and of course, those clips have to match the gun you've got. The customisation is pretty in-depth as well. You can tape magazines together for speedy reloading. Oh, and there's vehicles as well. So in short, this is a highly realistic interpretation of the JA series, but with its own list of issues. If you're after something more "hardcore", this is it. Plus it's pretty cheap.
