Summary: Interesting turn based strategy game. Different from all the other console games that I have played. I have played similar strategy games on PC (commandos, civilization, age of empires) and this would probably rank as 4th.
Summary: Bought this a couple of months ago, was waiting for certain bugs to be patched! First impressions of this game, I thought it was amazing, graphics & gameplay wise. However You soon realise the aliens are not spread over the map randomly like the original X-COM game on the Amiga & PC. The Aliens seem to have "Trigger Points" making them appear on the map! This kills any tension hunting the aliens as you know 90% of the time where the aliens appear!
Can Gameplay Make Up For Unimaginative Storyline? (Spoilers?)

Summary: This game is a fantasy for the original X-Com enthusiasts. At least that is how I found out about it. When I first tried the demo I was sold on this game. The same solid gameplay remained for the game's duration. I was even impressed by the way the game was so integrated into the "tutorial" process. This rang true in major research projects again. But when it came close to the end of the game--which seemed way too early-- the novelty of all these features wore off.
Summary: I had been looking forward to XCOM Enemy Unknown since the day I heard of it. As an old fan of the original X-COM: Enemy Unknown, I eagerly awaited the results. Now, I could spend some time comparing the old classic with the new game, but I will not do so. Why? Because this remake comes up short in every department but graphics. I was, to be honest, disappointed. That said, I decided to look at it as a completely new and different game (which it is to the larger degree).
Summary: Has been some great entertainment the past few weeks. Heaps to do and when
you think is this it, there is more just waiting around the corner. However…
The corner seems so close but the game has no consistency, so it
takes ages. For example. If you are not cautious in every move possible, there is a
chance you are gonna loose players with the flick of a switch. I have lost so
many players to week aliens so many times, players that have the highest rank
Summary: This is a good game, and I have been playing it almost constantly since I bought it but it is an unfinished product. It needs software patches to fix the huge list of errors or 'bugs' in the code. I wish I had not pre-ordered and waited. Did they not test the game before releasing it???
