Awesome remake of a classic - almost ruined by steam
Mr. Tired, Amazon

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.

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.
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.
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.
Summary: Needs more updates. After I am done with my second play through I don't see myself playing this ever again. They need more options in multiplayer and new campaign additions. I have already picked up the DLCs for this game.
Pros: Love the game during the first play through but now the second play through (on harder difficulty) I noticed some bugs (discussed in cons) A solid Strategy RPG. RPG not only on your units (solders) but also able to upgrade base, armor, weapons, and aircraft with in game money earned by how well y...
Cons: The multiplayer does not have a coop or comp stomp option. Also in my second play through I selected my starting country to be Africa so I could get a 30% increase in funds from countries and my game crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game but it still crashes when I select Africa as my s...
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.
Summary: I installed this I think, steam did some updates but I never saw anything else. I didn't get any new missions, or a new game shortcut. Can't really say it did any thing. I know it was suppose to do something but I have yet to find out what.
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!
