So within my 61st hour of playing Jagged Alliance BIA I had reach the Palace, the end game as i made my push through with two squads of salty mercenaries...and then the power went out. So upon reloading the game i find that all my saves have disappeared. The files are still in the folder but the game refuses to recognize them...so that's it, 61 hours and in the final level i don't get to finish...
...just like prom night. [ba-dum tsss]
Anyway, As for my opinion on the game, i liked it for the most part, it has it's fair share of jank and when that jank is responsible for getting you killed in a frustrating situation it's infuriating. It also has some terrible design choices as far as how items are traded between your mercenaries but overall i think it plays well and there were a few points were i felt like i was strategizing rather then just overpowering my way through, which is a lot of what the final hours of the game feel like.
So that's all i get for 61 hours, now i'll just watch the WMV files for the outro and pretend like i finished.
...just like prom night.
