Summary: Sweet majestic awesomeness of XCOM! Wow! Apocalypse was not a revolutionary sequel but it introduced many improvements besides graphics. Story, of course, is quite the same - the Aliens are here, and not the good sun-ray kind, but the evil greyish-big-black-no-eyelids kind, and they want to take...
Summary: There is allot I liked and didn't like with this game. While the visuals were an improvement on the previous 2 titles, it also made the game feel a bit more cartoony. The first two XCOM games were dark and always had a sense foreboding danger on every map. Here everything is bright and colorful.
Summary: City managment, real time tactical group combat, a living cityscape where hostile organisations or those inflitrated by the alien menace can and will attack you. So raid them first. Send your ships to smash their properties! Research the alien tech you capture and use it for your organisation...
Summary: I remember how i found it game on CD in school (it was thrown or lost) 1st time i installed and played 1st time i was thinking what da crap is that))) But in 2nd time when I had nothing to do i suddenly realize - this is one of the best games i ever seen.
Summary: When I first played this game, I went straight for the turn based. I was upset that they were trying to make X-Com into a real time game but happy that they at least gave me a choice. That said, years later I tried the real time and it works surprisingly well.
Summary: I never quite understood the animosity against X-com: Apocalypse. Yes there were flaws to the game. There were many an instance where I would think to myself that I should be the one who owns this damn city. Why don't I have access to Heavy Plasma? Wow. Psionics sucks hard now.
Summary: X-COM Apocalypse is often hated by fans of the series but I always had a lot of fun with it. It definitely feels incomplete in some areas but as a strategy game it has an interesting plot (though it requires reading between the lines) and the renown X-COM style.
Summary: This was the final Xcom game in the old series and to be honest is probably my favourite (much better than the new ones!). Although the weapon usage isn't as good as the others, the overall feel and strategies required are quite good. It is set in a city state where the aliens have come to play.
Excerpt: The original game in the Xcom series, known as UFO: Enemy Unknown, is a brilliant mix of turn-based tactical combat and real-time micromanagement, requiring you to command an organisation dedicated to fighting off a full-scale alien invasion by reasaerching and manufacturing new weapons and...
Pros: inventive, nice presentatton, some original concepts, varied
Cons: Not as well implemented as it could be, ground - based combat is lacking
Summary: Probably the best game I ever played. Period. It has everything... Most important of all, FEELING. Something now games lack almost completely. You should try it and you will know what I'm talking about. There is no point in explaining... just try it. Cheers
