Summary: I enjoyed playing this turn-based strategy game. The updated story is engaging. What I didn't expect was the story appeared to start over. I thought this was like an expansion and added new missions. However, it was more like retelling the story from an alternate universe...the same beginning but some new events have popped up.
If you liked the original, then you'll love this expansion.

Summary: This is a more fleshed-out version of the original game. The expansion adds new tech, re-balances the existing mechanics, adds a rival group trying to compete with you and adds more variety to the maps you play and the missions that take place within them.
Summary: This is an excellent expansion to XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Adds many nice little things that make it worth getting. I started over and don't regret it. However, one annoying thing is that you are forced to take a more active, slightly less careful approach in order to get a resource introduced as meld. However, it's more of a high risk, high reward thing and not mandatory. Thought I'd point it out. Activating is a simple Steam code.
Summary: I have an entire bookcase full of PC games and a few online ones but the game I go to more than all others combined is Enemy Within. IMO it contains all one could expect in a turn based tactical wargame.
