An amazing tribute to the original seriesTyndles | July 17, 2013 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA)
The original XCOM was a brutal experience and this game has the potential to be no different. It thankfully offers difficulty levels so those not used to the difficulty that is XCOM can enjoy this amazing game and great atmosphere without being too frustrated (and it can get frustrating.)
It's a beautiful game that makes you feel like the world really is about to end, with well acted voiceovers from your squad and commander, the only thing that is really lacking in this game is the story. It's there, but there is so much focus on base building and randomizing aspects of the actual progression that it's barebones. There are aliens, and you have to stop them.
But if you like strategy games, and like them HARD, than this game is going to make you very happy, and possibly pull your hair out. But good luck!
