Excellent game, very hard though, but that's part of the fun.

Summary: The good thing about X-Com is its difficulty. I play in Classic mode and with the Iron man option selected. At first you can't kill a single alien, and you are soon overwhelmed by the high learning curve.
A very fun game you should play, does not live up to the original.

Summary: I bought this game because I really like the x com franchise. The first one I played was x com interceptor, which is a space dog fighter game. Then I went back and played the older x com gamesX com has been a pretty fun game.
Summary: As a hardcore XCOM fan since the first 1997 game, I was so excited about this that I bought a brand new PS3 just to be able to play it. The graphics are awesome and the gameplay is as scary and difficult as the first one. Most of the content is pretty similar with a bunch of new stuff.

Summary: I don't have a ton of experience with squad-based games, but this seems to be pretty well done in terms of game mechanics and tactical options available on the battlefield. Character development is fun, and I like the way they chose to represent the base too, although I feel like there's room for...
Summary: XCOM is a turn based strategy game. But unlike most games in the genre, your soldiers have permanent death, and it's totally possible to sink thirty hours into the game, only to discover that because of your decisions you will never be able to beat the game on that playthrough.
Summary: This is a great game that has managed to keep my attention until the wee hours of the night. If you are a fan of the old original XCOM you will like how they stay true to the original in many ways. Definitely money well spent in my opinion.
