Summary: Not bad, reminded me of Brothers in Arms series where you can give orders to your squad as well as play First Person. This got a bad rep as most folks expected more X-Com and not a FPS but the squad tactics are very good and the story is good. I could have done without all the walking around in the base.
Summary: I got a great price for this tangentially connected game in the Xcom world. I would've liked it to have some of the elements advertised before it was retooled though...that would have gotten the extra star.
Pretty much everything I wanted from the canceled XCom Alliance game that we never got.

Summary: Pretty much everything I wanted from the canceled XCom Alliance game that we never got. Yes, it apes Mass Effect, in more than a few ways. It has the third person cover-based shooting and pause-and-command system of Mass Effect, along with the mechanic of storyline choice steering your experience. While it lacks the overwhelming scope of the Mass Effect games, it does offer a deeper tactical system than found in Bioware's games.
A fun game if a little extra challenging at times.

Summary: Very cool mix of action and strategy. I wish the difficulty levels weren't so skewed tho. It basically goes from easiest, to easy, to insanely hard to impossible. A normal hard level would be appreciated. But gameplay is satisfying and graphics are top notch! Def recommended.
Summary: Growing up back in Staten Island , NY I had a friend of mine show me a variety of games on the PC. One of the games that he loved to play was a game where you had to travel around the world and battle aliens that were bent on conquering earth. The game was called X-Com and recently it has made a comeback with such great games as X-Com Enemy Unknown.
Summary: XCOM is a strategy game. Always has been. But here comes the Bureau and all of a sudden, you get to actually be on the team, lead the team, be in the 60's with makeshift sci-fi gear and fight a desperate battle for mankind's survival. Wow... so it's NOT your usual XCOM game. It IS set in the same universe and you do have quite a vast amount of tactical options in the field making this game quite an interesting hybrid. And honestly, a rather well executed one.
