Great game, some flaws, lots of glitches

sadsaturn | Aug. 16, 2013 | Review of XCOM Enemy Unknown Pack

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is my first dip into the franchise. While I enjoyed the overall feel of accomplishment a good mission brought, and the sense of loss a bad one wrought, it's at its best. The turn-based combat and mechanics make you sit on the edge of your seat whenever there's an encounter, where every move counts.

Unfortunately I did have some issues with the game, particularly where I felt tunneled with the ability to only do one mission and make one country happy at a time. In addition, the game is buggy. I had the title at launch, and although a lot of the bugs the plagued the game have been resolved with subsequent patches it still has some infuriating glitches every now and again. My final warning is to beware of the DLC unless you know what you're getting. For the most part, for most people, it's probably not worth it.
