Space Is Invaded, Again

GIN
13 January 2014
  • Excerpt: It was actually difficult to categorize XCOM: Enemy Within. The game is essentially the same as the GiN GOTY Strategy title of 2013, XCOM: Enemy Unknown. However, depending on what platform you played that game on, you could either pick up Enemy Within as a downloaded update, or as a full new game...

XCOM: Enemy Within

Destructoid
11 November 2013
  • Summary: It almost feels like a sequel XCOM: Enemy Unknown was one of my favorite games of 2012. As a fan of the original franchise back in the '90s, I felt like it did an excellent job of not only re-introducing the once-beloved franchise back into the fold for newcomers, but also providing veterans with a...

XCOM: Enemy Within Review

VideoGamer.com
11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Enemy Unknown’s replay value wasn’t evident until you started playing Iron Man, a mode which would cruelly wipe you out and force you to start a new game because of it. Instead of resenting the difficulty, you’d secretly treasure the stories of these failures – latching on to the moment where your...

Second verse, fun as the first.

GameSpot
11 November 2013
  • Summary: Several hours into XCOM: Enemy Within, pumping bullets into extraterrestrials and sending aircraft to chase UFOs, I found myself thinking of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen . Rest assured, there are no dragons here, but Firaxis' beloved tactical shooter follows much the same model as Capcom's...
  • Pros: 40 new maps with diverse settings enrich the playing field, New EXALT faction makes metagame at base more challenging, New MECs and gene mods add "cool" factor without sacrificing difficulty, Meld collection adds urgency to standard missions
  • Cons: New Seeker enemies are little more than pinatas

DarkZero
3 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Last year’s rebirth of the XCOM franchise with XCOM: Enemy Unknown was met with high praise. We even scored it a fantastic 9/10 . You should go check out that review, because there’s a lot of similar key points that both this expansion pack and the original game share.

XCOM: Enemy Within Review | MECs-COM

13 November 2013
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Enemy Within is an improvement on an already outstanding game. It takes familiar systems, builds on top of them and challenges us in new ways, once again wearing our fingernails down to the bone and frazzling our nerves by making us second-guess each and every decision we make on...
  • Pros: Increased map variety, MELD presents new risk/reward decisions, MECs are awesome, Expanded research trees and engineering options, EXALT faction adds tension to the global conflict and panic-managing metagame, Shakes the tactical gameplay up with new enemy types and improved AI
  • Cons: How is the texture pop-in worse than before?!, Multiplayer still fairly sparse, We're going to have to talk about that ending

XCOM: Enemy Within review

Eurogamer
11 November 2013
  • Excerpt: When it comes to expanding upon on an original concept, Firaxis is not averse to getting its hands dirty. After spending the last couple of years reworking, refining and enhancing key elements of Civilization 5, the developer has now slapped XCOM: Enemy Unknown on the operating table, rolled up its...
