No experience with the others, but the Jagged Alliance: Classics pack contains Jagged Alliance 2, which is one of my favorite games of all time and is definitely worth getting.

Expeditions Conquistador is a pretty interesting game. Strategy RPG that takes place in the 1500s Caribbean? Sign me up.

It actually plays a lot of like a Tactics game, such as Final Fantasy Tactics or Fire Emblem. But it's not all just fighting, there's diplomacy stuff similar to dialogue choices from Fallout 1/2/NV.

Coming from someone who's played over 20hrs of it, not really. It's just a poor man's Freelancer. Combat consists of holding down the strafe button to become unhittable and winning every fight almost effortlessly because the AI is dumb as hell. Everything about the game is pretty mediocre by PC space combat and trading sim standards.(It's a port of a mobile game)

Can't say anything about the other games.

Jagged Alliance: Classics


The $1 option is worth it for that alone.

Then do it for the charity.

You can obviously afford to do it.

JA Crossfire seems to be a buggy mess which was never fixed. Seems like a pretty meh bundle though.

I bought it for Expeditions: Conquistador and the Jagged Alliance classics pack. As far as I can recall this is the cheapest that E:C has been available for so to my mind it was worth it just for that one game.

However, I'm a big fan of turn-based strategy games so these games may appeal to me more than you.
