"...the campaign is full of tense moments that are sure to keep you coming back for more." - IGN.com
"A wonderful and worthy strategy game with a layer of campy charm that makes the stone-faced seriousness of the game's characters all the more endearing. It's also remarkably accessible, thanks to a great interface that feels comfortable whether you're using a keyboard and mouse or have a controller in your hand." - Gamespot.com
Threatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth’s governments unite to form an elite paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack. As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion by creating a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle.
Worldwide Threat: Combat spans the globe as the XCOM team engages in over 70 unique missions, interacting and negotiating with governments around the world.
Strategic Base: Recruit, customize and grow unique soldiers and manage your personnel. Detect and intercept the alien threat as you build and expand your XCOM headquarters.
Strategy Evolved: XCOM: Enemy Unknown couples tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences and on-the-ground combat.
Tactical Combat: Direct soldier squads in turn-based ground battles and deploy air units such as the Interceptor and Skyranger.

unlike a-lot of today games this game is a gem, well made and polished story and mechanics who makes you want to play it again and again. this is how games should be made, not instant release full of bugs and "DLC" patches to leach $$ if you like tactical-strategy games you will like this one, you will need to mange your economics on base and further your tec advance, and on the same time to control your squad on the battlefield. i highly recommend it!

This is a reboot of the original X com series of games will you be able to save the world from alien invasion? yes... maybe, depending on how your luck. this game has the ground turn based strategy layer for missions and real-time at the base, the base helps you on the field and what you do on the field helps you in the base a great game for strategy lovers.
Best possible remake of a classicthamzeo | June 8, 2015 | See all thamzeo's reviews »
I've played lots of games that have been remade recently, but this one is clearly at the top of the list. Intense turn based combat, great story progression. Everything is very streamlined and the Enemy Within expansion adds even more to it. Great game.
Oldschool play, but very fresh after allScalard | June 6, 2015 | See all Scalard's reviews »
I don't know what can I say. I played about nearly 80 hours just Enemy Unknown? Or I was absolutely hooked like none other games in the last 10 years? And why? Still don't know. Graphics are good but not Great, even though the gameplay get repetitive - and even harder - missions as you approach the final countdown. Even the management have some issues - you can't dicide how you train your people, and it pure chance which class the game drop - I only have ONE medic nearly half of the game, and if he get hurt, that hurst the rest of the team. I never forget the anger I've got when we lost Brasil. We never allow something similar just happen in the rest of the world. And maybe the snipers gets GOD mode in the end game - I have two, and they are pretty deadly in great distance, maybe a SIX sniper team the jack of all trades - that's a very good Idea maybe I'll try in the future. But all of this whining nothing compared the fantastic atmosphere. It's like X-files come true. They are real. The little greys are the worst enemies. And they want to anal-ise YOU. So grab your copy, and WIPE them out. That's an order soldier! Now what are you waiting for! There is a planet to save!
