One of the most fun games I've played in recent years. There is a lot of variety to the classes and equipment and how they can be used, with challenging AI and interesting map layouts. Managing your money and resources outside of combat was surprisingly fun. I thought that aspect of the game wouldn't be very interesting, but it is critical to your success in the campaign. If you like thought-provoking encounters and critical thinking in resource management, I'd definitely recommend this game to you
XCOM is very good renovation of good old classic UFO games (Enemy Unknown, Terror from the Deep). Brilliant tactical turn based strategy. Fight for your planet and defend it from alien attacks. Develop your base, research technology based on alien tech, take care of finances, enlist people from all over the world and fight greys and other alien species. Good luck commander!!!
This was the first X-COM game i ever bought, and damn it was worth it. All i end up doing is naming my favourite soldiers, then watching as they completely obliterate aliens, and becoming sad and annoyed when they are murdered. Just buy the game. I've only encountered 1 bug/glitch so far, and all that happened was that one of my guys got stuck in a wall during a mission, kind of annoying but hey, what are you gonna do. Word of warning to those that actually get this deal: the slingshot DLC is hard, or at least for me. I've been through about 20 soldiers trying to do the first part of it. But anyway, buy the game, but it now. You will regret this. Mark my words!
I am not xcom fan, I did not play any previous xcom games, did not even know their existence. However, this game is pretty good. It has element of managing your resources like simulation game, and winning battle against aliens like turn based rpg game. The downside is that managing resources, especially managing satelite can be tedious. And there aren't many way to deviate. There is always pre set standard to how to spend your money and research hour, since satelite and certain research is crucial.
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.
