The Satellite Comes and Goes

RPGamer

  • 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 of the 'quick load' key.

XCOM: Enemy Within

High-Def Digest
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Firaxis is revisiting ' XCOM: Enemy Unknown ' with a drastically large expansion entitled 'Enemy Within.' 2012's riveting turn-based strategy title surprised everybody with its simultaneous devotion to past glory and progression of gameplay mechanics. And the expansion promises a new human enemy in the form of a shadow organization. It's not a wonder of whether the famed strategy developer can deliver again.

XCOM: Enemy Within

Game Over Online

  • 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. Games that are too easy often leave me without any feeling of a sense of accomplishment.

XCOM: Enemy Within Review (PC)

Softpedia
23 November 2013
  • Conclusion: XCOM: Enemy Within is a rare beast in the modern gaming world, a classic expansion that manages to improve the quality of the core game without disturbing the balance of the overall experience. The MELD and its use for mechs and gene improvements both make the tactics gameplay more interesting and more engaging and the increase in the number of maps means that there’s less grind towards the later stages of the campaign.
  • Pros: + MECs and gene augmentation, + New EXALT missions, + More maps
  • Cons: - Some balance issues, - Some difficulty spikes

  • Conclusion: Players who enjoyed 2012′s XCOM: Enemy Unknown already know whether they will enjoy Enemy Within . For devotees still playing, or folks who want to pick XCOM back up after focusing on other things for a while, Enemy Within introduces compelling new ways to combat the alien invasion that are well worth the asking price. Just be ready for Firaxis to throw a dozen Chryssalids, a handful of flying disks, and a few Mutons in mechanized suits in your direction.

Mectoids, Genetics, and new threats – a review of XCOM: Enemy Within

GamingTrend
5 November 2013
  • Summary: Like the soldiers in the game, XCOM: Enemy Within takes everything introduced in Enemy Unknown, polishes it, enhances it, and redeploys it into the field. It’s stronger, it’s meaner, and it’s awesome. The new additions force your hand to make tactical decisions that can and will lead to the death of soldiers that you’ll become attached to now more than ever.
  • Pros: MEC and Gene addons are well balanced, Additional maps shake things up, Timed sub objectives drive players out of their foxholes, Bevy of small changes clean up an already great game
  • Cons: Pathfinding AI is just dumb, Interaction elements cause accidental movements
