A great update to a classic

gamerely | Jan. 31, 2014 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA)

But not a perfect update to the classic. If you're a fan of turned based tactical combat, base building, and economy management this game is for you. The original Xcom is a classic and this game took a lot of steps to replicate it's greatness, but it isn't the old Xcom. The difficulty for the game can be absolutely brutal, almost to an unfair degree. Which has kept me from doing multiple replays out of absolute frustration.

I haven't tried the multiplayer but I've seen very interesting things from it although it can be frustrating with people min maxing their teams. Those are the only flaws I can think of, it is a fantastic game and I highly recommend it.
