  • Summary: Although having implemented the lite version of a community mod, the game is still a buggy mess. This means the game itself doesn't really worth a dent.

  • Summary: I am reviewing this game using the UNI Mod which I think made this game the legitimate successor of the original XCOM. I have heard tha vanilla was not good but the one I purchase was the steam version using BT mod. It was okay at first and I would rate it as a 7 but it made the game for me TOO EASY. So I have research and some recommended the UNIMOD for advance players and I have not looked back.

  • Summary: UFO: Extraterrestrials is a recreation of X-Com where you fight an alien race from invading Earth by building bases, researching new weapons, recruiting marines and taking the fight to the aliens in turn-based ground-combat. UFO: Extraterrestrials Gold Edition has the added bonus that it comes with a lot of modifications that make the game more true to the original or simply less frustrating.

  • Summary: I agree with the guy that gave it a 100... Easily... If you haven't played an X-COM game, I don't see how you couldn't enjoy this for the amzing strategy/rpg game that it is... If you have played X-COMs, then you would have to be compelled to say that his is by far one of the most challenging, yet fun one in the series!

  • Summary: Note - This review is for the GOLD edition only. When UFO first cam eout almost 4 years ok it was "ok". I bought it from Gamersgate and played it a bit, though probably no more than an afternoon. I would have given it a 6 at the times, though looking back 1 of those points might have been for the nostalgia of the game it tries to emulate (X-Com) What the Gold edition offers is just about every improvement that the community asked for with the original.

Very extraterrestrial

  • Conclusion: I love games such x-com and ufo, but this one is not in good shape to deal with titles like UFO Afterlight. Poor graphics, zero jugability... it seems to be a 90th game but with the 2007 price.

Finally

  • Conclusion: We can all se that the graphics are not of the best and I must admit that I expected something better in terms of gameplay optiones and graphics. And by the way, the intro was really bad. Just long and unimpressive. But as I see it this game was made to satisfy all the people that would like to experiance the old UFO: X-COM games again. It truly does bring back memories.

A game for the 90's

  • Conclusion: The game really is really poor in control and graphics compared with UFO afterlight. If you really want a game like this just play the original Enemy Unkown

Great!

  • Conclusion: To be honest I've never played the old UFO games or the Enemy Unknown game, but this game rocks. I'm not sure how it compares to the others but the gameplay is excellent and all for £14.99. I would think this game is mainly for people who like long strategy games and also turn based action. I was never a fan of turn based action but this game has totally changed my mind on it.

At last an Heir to the Throne of X-Com

  • Conclusion: Let me start by saying that I've played the UFO After***** series and although they are impressive in a way, they do not feed my hunger for a replacement of x-com, they just have the right feel - I cant quite put my finger on it, but there is just something they are not doing right :(
