  • Conclusion: Oh! And there are a lot more customization options! It’s still not quite as robust as on PCs or consoles, but there are definitely more ways for you to tweak the look of your soldiers.

The Satellite Comes and Goes

RPGamer
22 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Long ago, when gamers wanted their computers to kick them in the balls with obscene difficulty they played X-Com , in which the Earth's "best" forces were thrown in small numbers against the threats of an elusive extra-terrestrial threat — whereupon they died horribly and were revived by the power...

XCOM: Enemy Within

True achievements
16 April 2014
  • Conclusion: The multiplayer is limited, but will nevertheless appeal to some. The only real weaknesses are in the area of sound and voice acting. Still, these weaknesses are not worth a full star, and I don't give half-star ratings.

XCOM: Enemy Within

High-Def Digest
16 January 2014
  • Summary: The bottom line is you'll never play ' XCOM: Enemy Unknown ' for the first time ever again. It's okay that 'Enemy Within' doesn't give you that feeling. It doesn't recreate the dread we all felt in those first couple playthroughs. That's where ironman mode comes in.

Cheat Happens
29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: When it comes to last year's amazingly deep strategy reboot of XCOM, 2K and developer Firaxis seem to have a "if it's not broke, don't fix it" mindset.

XCOM: Enemy Within

ActionTrip
16 December 2013
  • Conclusion: Enemy Within is how XCOM was meant to be played. It takes all the great things from the original and refurbishes them with all sorts of cool new additions to the gameplay. If you haven’t been introduced to the XCOM universe yet, this would be the right time to start.
  • Pros: An exceptionally well-polished add-on with terrific new missions, and numerous new features, enhances everything that was great about the original;
  • Cons: The story's still a bit weak. I really don't mind anything else, now will you let me play in peace.

XCOM: Enemy Within

Game Over Online
29 November 2013
  • Excerpt: The Good : New adversaries, new technologies and upgrades. The Bad : Many missions seem too highly scripted. The Ugly : Difficulty level very uneven over the course of a game. Without a doubt, the whole XCOM series embodies the love/hate relationship I have with video games.

PC Invasion
26 November 2013
  • Summary: XCOM: Enemy Within is, in a lot of ways, the quintessential expansion pack. It’s not a pseudo-sequel. It doesn’t add on huge amounts of stuff after the end, or offer an entirely new campaign, or anything like that.

XCOM: Enemy Within review (PC)

HonestGamers
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: XCOM: Enemy Within is the same game. I say this with full knowledge that the job of an expansion is generally to expand upon existing content, but in this case, you really are getting the same campaign that you probably spent dozens of hours with last year.
