I got Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business on GoG.com a while back, as it was on sale and I heard it was similar to X-COM. I recently installed it, and while it seems interesting I can't survive the opening battle, even on Easy.
I'm attempting to use cover, firing from prone, concentrating fire on 1-2 opponents at a time and taking the mercs recommended in the manual and yet the last time I tried I lost everyone but 2 mercenaries in my first battle. What am I likely doing wrong? Am I supposed to run from the first fight after the helicrash and build up strength? The manual says to enter the area and fight.
