Summary: Overall I give this gave a 4/5 score. "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" is a turn based game where you are fighting off an invading alien force. There are multiple variables the player must balance; prioritizing technology upgrades, base construction, and troop development are some of these variables that impact the overall success. There are different levels of difficulty available giving the user the option to save constantly.
Summary: This is the best strategy game I have ever played. The pacing is excellent, the tense fights, and the dreaded perma-death really makes you feel like you are in that control room. The characters are really cheesy and they feel like they should belong in a clique Sci-Fi movie. Still, the aliens are fun to fight, and naming your squaddies after family and friends is hilarious, especially when they get blasted into oblivion.
Summary: To summarize my experience with Xcom enemy unknown every time I crafted something new at my base I said " boy I can't wait to try out this fancy new alien tech".and when I just got done saving a country I said "boy I can't wait to get more of this alien tech".and did that for a good long while.
