Summary: The game itself is fine, however, the product sent to me was not what was described. I actually returned my first copy and reordered and got exactly the same thing as the first time. You do not get the special edition version with the included art book, DLC, poster, and soundtrack. This is a video game in a normal package. It does not even say special edition on the front of the package like the picture shows.
Summary: I ordered this on amazon because I wanted the special edition. However, after opening it, I found that it was just the regular version of the game and did not contain the special edition extras (as listed in the product description). I am very displeased and expect to get my money back.
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.
Summary: I bought XCOM: EU a few weeks ago. After playing several missions without problems, the program now crashes all the time. Either at start-up or during game play. The Steam forum is full with similar complaints about both EU and EW. Funnily enough the price has dropped significantly from 29.99 a few weeks ago ( when I bought it ) until 9.99 now. Makes you wonder....
