This game sucks.

Aaron, Amazon

  • Summary: Same flaws as the 90s version. Not worth it at all. The older edition is actually more enjoyable and less frustrating.

Awesome remake of a classic - almost ruined by steam

Mr. Tired, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • Summary: The game is easily 5 stars. It loses 3 stars for requiring steam. Had I read more carefully I would never have purchased. And losing 3 stars is being kind. Buy the ps3 version - it is probably not as versatile and doesn't get quite as much cool stuff - but it doesn't suffer from steam.

A glitchy exercise in frustration on PC for an otherwise great game.

Chuckturbo, Amazon

  • Summary: I LOVE this game for PS3! But there are so many glitches in the PC version, that I can hardly even play it! I purchased it so that I could have something fun to do when I'm on my PC, but it took three attempts just to complete the first mission, I give up on my $25 game.

Good, but not like originals

John Jamieson, Amazon

  • Summary: Althought the graphics, sounds, and cutscenes are excellent, the game has some significant flaws. Part of the charm of X-Com 1, 2 and Apocalypse, was the ability to really manage your gear. Now, I'm a turtle player - I believe in strong defense and let the enemy break itself on you.

This game is only 30% of the original Xcom.

Dionicio Batista "Yerry Batista", Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: This game is only 30% of the original Xcom. In the original Xcom you have: Multiple Base, Multiple Teams, You can attack their bases, they can attack yours. I even had Special teams for any UFO situation.

Uninspired. Waste a weekend, but not much else.

Wizardly, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: Not mentioned anywhere on the Amazon product description, this item requires Vista or 7. This title does not work using Windows XP. Graphics are good, and transitions are mostly smooth. However, this game is all flash and no substance. Every single action requires a cut-scene.

Too many cons to make it a pro

Doctor Dave "Mister Fix It", Amazon
21 February 2013
  • Summary: I fell into the hype back in October, with all the YouTube videos marketing gameplay by the Firaxis developers. WOW I thought! What a great game and they claim to have started work on this title almost 4 years ago. It must be solid!

Nearly worthless

V. Kosmina, Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: X-COM Enemy Unknown Elite Soldier Pack is basically worthless: 1. The (official as opposed to Amazon's) description of what you get (quoted below) is deliberately misleading to fool you into thinking that you are getting more than you are really getting, which I find at least unethical.

Beware of the 4 and 5 star console fan boy reviews. This is not the original X-com, it is something less, much less.

John, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • Summary: I hate to say this because I loved the original X-COM and its sequels, but after playing the new game all the way to the end twice, I am deeply disappointed by this one. 15 years later and they could not come up with a better game than this?

Pathetic imitation of the original

Backstop, Amazon
21 November 2012
  • Summary: I could go through a line by line multi-point presentation of why this game is bad, but it would waste more precious time. This game is a pale comparison of the original, now 18 years old. The current game offers far less flexibility both tactically and strategically.
