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.
Summary: I love this game! The single player game is a perfect recreation of the original with alot of improved graphics, better explanations and sound mechanics. Each time you win you unlock new abilities to make it the most challenging game you will ever play. It can be dangerous to play this game as it might cause you to ditch some friends or avoid work so you can keep playing. Multiplayer is mind blowing. If you love strategy this is for you.
Summary: The original XCOM game (X-COM: UFO Defense) is probably my favorite PC game of all time (along with many other people). The original game was basically divided into two views - the geoscape and the battlescape. I would say that the battlescape portion (the tactical combat) has been very faifthfully updated and provides some nice improvements over the original game.
Summary: this game is awesome. the combat is tons of fun, but sometimes glitchy. the base building is equally fun. It's not aspect carrying the other. they are both awesome and both contribute to a perfect balance in the game. highly recommend.
Summary: I’m not a huge fan of tactical 3rd person shooters, but after hearing such good things about it I bought it, and boy am I glad I did the game play is fun and addicting and instead of just controlling an army you command a whole base at an ant farm view. You send satellites to other countries you use research to do alien autopsies and make new weapons and gear. Engineering makes new areas like a work shop or an alien containment centers.
Summary: Captain Leroy Jenkins. He was taken out by a Thin Man. A Thin Man for crying out loud. He may have fallen, but because of his brave sacrifice the squad could complete it's objective of murder all of the things. This is Xcom. It's the heart behind the game. Getting attached to your soldiers as you prance them around Plasma Fire and Cyberdiscs. You could always send out a Shiv, but you can personally name those. The gameplay itself rewarding.
Summary: This game is meant for people who enjoy playing Strategy games. I'm new to the XCOM franchise but in this installation, every decision you make in XCOM:EU matters to your soldiers and to the future of the world. It is a bit confusing at first but after a couple of hours of gameplay, you start to pick up on what things you should be doing, ie. buying satellites, researching armor/weapons, etc.
