Summary: This is a great game for when it came out, but since release Enemy Within has come out. It's an identical game with a lot more features and the story is deeper. There are also more side missions and less repeativeness in the abduction missions. Great game but feels dated now.
Summary: This is, without a doubt, the best turn-based console game I have ever played, with at least 40 hours of compelling gameplay. It has some extremely deep strategic gameplay that you just won't find in very many games today, and as such, it stands apart as an instant genre-busting classic.
Summary: When I first ordered this game, I wasn't expecting too much from it. It was on sale on Amazon for 30 bucks and I had been hearing good things about it so I picked it up. This was easily one of the best spontaneous video game purchases I've made.
Summary: This is a good game , but you have to do more less the same thing all time , get to the local of the abduction , kill some aliens and get back to the base , the research part of the game is great , you will feel more and more powerful as the game become near to the end , in resume Its a great game ,...
Summary: An enjoyable game, but it could've been better. I am a huge fan of the original, so the trimming of much of the intricate base building, micro-managed inventory, expansive research, and varied troop base skills killed much of XCOM: Enemy Unknown's charm.
Summary: X-COM: Enemy Unknown is a great update of the classic Microprose game of the '90's. At the core it's still turn based squad combat with a research and development tree and a mean difficulty ramp.
Summary: XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now regularly available under $20 and it is well worth the price. I have invested countless hours in the original and I was reluctant to pick this game up because I didn't see how it could compare to the original. None of the sequels did. But 2K did a great job with it.
Haven't been this addicted to a video game in a VERY long time (review from a noob to the series)

Summary: Short and sweet on this one. Should be 4.5 stars but no game is perfect. AMAZING game. BEWARE, super addictive. I got this the same week as Dishonored. I've played 1 hour of Dishonored. About 12 hours of this so far.
