Hi,

Umm .. well after playing JA2 for the 4th time round and this time with Deidranne lives installed I guess i'm already pretty biased towards picking it up.

BUT .. (big but) I have been reading some really bad reviews of UB and i just wanted to know from those of you in this forum who have played it what exactly you like & hate about it.

Thanks guys,

I have completed JA2 27 times, then I bought UB and completed it 4 times. Then I started playing JA2:UB mods ( SOG69, Cold Comfort, Sierra Gordo... ).

JA2: UB = recommended

I was sorely disappointed and regret buying it. Only reason would be the User Campaigns that have been made.

Currently I'm playing SOG69.

JA2: UB default campaign is quite short, but those user created campaigns make it good buy. But of course, I wouldn't pay too much for JA2: UB anymore. It's quite old game...

I like Ub quite a bit. Its been stripped of a few features but over all its a great game, like JA2. Plus the MODS!

The included campaign is disappointingly short, but it did include the editor and some new resources. And it wasn't bad, just not as involved as the original campaign. There was also a disappointing lack of vehicles and the helicopter wasn't functional. All in all though I enjoyed it, it was more straight out firefight stuff than the first one, and tough firefights early on. But hey it was more of the stuff I liked anyway. The best thing was that it made both games easier to mod, and there's a load of stuff made for it. You should get it just to play the mods/maps. SIERRA GORDO ROCKS!!! (and it's the biggest, meanest set of battles in the early game, you'll be crying for your Mom that BecomingX beat up your mercs real bad Very Happy ) It's worth getting UB to play Sierra Gordo just to play Sierra Gordo, just my opinion YMMV. Read the posts about the mods and see what others have said.

well, for starters, you get to make your own missions and the campaign editor is 10 times easier to use than Fallout tactic's

the game is more challenging than JA2 but shorter, however, the map editor offers alot of replayability!

I think UB is worth it's money... it's not so expensive nowadays anyway, which makes up for the real short campaign... now if only they'd make that Barrett and Val Silenced spawn in the original JA2, it would be perfect Smile
Next Topic: Help, problem in Bearpit 1 campaign :(
