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
14 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

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.

XCOM: Enemy Within review (PC)

18 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.
