Interesting strategy game

vijay.katam, Ebay

  • 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.

If Not For The Stutter

Zeke Plissken, Amazon

  • Summary: For the most part this game is great. It's a team combat and base management game that uses a turn based system and offers the ability to save whenever you want. That in my opinions makes it unique in a world of cookie cutter real time video games and their fixed save points. The graphics are crisp and colorful.

Good fun, but pales in comparison to the original game.

  • Summary: I was, like many gamers, a huge fan of the original X-Com series. Even now, almost 20 years later, I still believe the original X-Com: UFO Defense was one of the four or five greatest PC strategy games that I've ever played. The original was THAT GOOD; it totally blew my mind and had me cutting classes in college so I could run back to the dorm and play a few more turns (luckily, my GPA didn't suffer).

Great nostalgia factor, but bugs keeping it from 5 stars

Hyper "Hyper", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved the original X-com game on PC, which I played for days.. weeks at a time. This console-based reboot of it is a great successor to the original game. Its retained much of the strategic, turn-based fun elements and managed to translate it to a modernized update. Played through the first game in about 15 hours on Normal mode and literally could not put it down. It was always "One last mission!" even though it was already 4am.

Could be better!

  • 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!

X-COM is back

  • 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).

"Needs improvement..."

  • 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 possible.

Great Game - Lots Of Bugs

The Truth, amazon.co.uk
24 October 2012
  • 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???

Gutes...

Volker Kahmen, Amazon

  • Summary: ...Spiel. Leider hält der Spielspaß nur für ein paar Tage. Grafisch dem Original weit voraus, wie sollte es auch anders sein, wenn dieses aus den 90ern ist. Danke für die Erinnerung an endlose Zockernächte. Leider konnte dieses Spiel nicht ganz überzeugen.
