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.

Summary: Just purchased XCOM: Enemy Unknown [Special Edition] - PC. Maybe I'm naïve but I did not expect to have to sign up with Steam to play the game. Had I known this I would not have purchased the game. Amazon should know that being a member of Steam is a requirement and made it very clear that you may pay for the game but only play at the pleasure of Steam. As far as I can tell I have to be online to play.
