Summary: This game is easily one of the most annoying yet most rewarding games I have ever played. Overall it is good enough that after I borrowed it from a friend, I bought him a copy and shipped it to him so I could keep playing it in the future.
Summary: Its an excellent game. I was surprised how much I am enjoying it. The graphics are a bit behind for a recent game, dull in many ways, but it works well and operates easily. Its a bit short too on evolving story. Its a good exciting game.
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...
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: 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.
A great game robbed of perfection by some obnoxious bugs. 4.5 out of 5

Summary: I really like this game. Graphics are pretty good, sounds are decent, and the combat music soundtrack is great. Gameplay-wise, the tactical combat is very thought-provoking. You really have to pay attention and make smart choices to win.
A good game and a must-play for any strategy fans.

Summary: I bought X-COM: EU because I love strategy games and heard good things about it. It definitely delivered. In-depth RPG elements on top of human vs. alien strategy warfare was great. Haven't played a game like it and I was thrilled.
A taxing, rewarding, stressful, satisfying, punishing and soothing rollercoaster

Summary: XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a bit of a contradiction of a game. Not only is it vastly different than the common games of this current generation, but I stand by my title for this review because it will evoke a vast range of emotions from start to finish.
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.
