Summary: Great game, I played the originals years ago and this game, although updated, is very true to form. Not quite as difficult as the old ones, which are some of the hardest, as well as best, games every made. Still challenging though.

Summary: I first purchased this for my android phone and loved it but it was a bit hard to play given the small screen. I have an LG G2 so it's actually a very good screen for a phone. I found out it was available for the PC and purchased it and enjoy it even more. I have never played any of the XCOM series games but this game has very good graphics (based on the Unreal engine) and the interface works well.
Summary: I LOVE LOVE this game! It is similar enough to the classic 90s game yet updated to today s standards. Have played this many times over again. Great story line and great strategy Game. I cannot recommend this more highly. It is turn based; I know that is kind of of a dying thing now, but this really works for this game. Excellent! I want a sequel!
Summary: I will start by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed this game as I played through it. It was a very fun strategy game that forces you to handle the XCOM project as a whole as well as your soldiers on the field in your individual battles. I enjoy strategy games and this one really came through as exceptional and one that stands apart from others I have played in the past. I highly recommend this game, with the next paragraph as a caveat.
Summary: I grew up with the original Xcom game. It was complex and strategic and loads of fun. The new version is just as fun and better in many ways. This is one of the best tactical games out there and I had at first bought it for the Playstation 3. I purchased it again for my PC when the expansion XCOM Enemy within came out. It runs much better on my PC than it does on the Playstation 3! I'm very pleased with this and was thrilled with the price!
The PC game itself is fine but not a Special Edition delivered as stated :(

Summary: I have to agree with the poster below me, Das Spartan, I too was under the impression that it would be the Special Edition PC game being listed by Amazon which included extra's. It clearly states under the description that the pc game would come with Special Edition Features include a fold out poster of the XCOM base- An art book detailing the conceptual journey of re-imagining the classic, a patch of the XCOM Viglio/Confido insignia and digital bonus items including...
