Turn based strategy goodness.enjoyslongwalks | Aug. 20, 2013 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA)
Not a lot of turn based strategy games out there, even that being said this is one of the best. This is no grand strategy game with militaries, economies or policies to control, but that's part of what makes it so great. You control at most 6 individual soldiers, each with their own abilities and talents, depending on what class they are and what perks you choose for them. The depth comes in with those class/perk choices, how you set up your team and how you develop your tech. It's a really solid game and would definitely recommend to those that like strategy games such as Full Spectrum Warrior. My only knock against it is how unforgiving the game quickly becomes if you are not careful about your choices. There are also some negligble bugs that kind of irked me.
