XCOM: Enemy Unknown review

 

Classic strategy returns in contemporary clothing

A triumph - not purely in terms of resurrecting one of the greatest games of all time, but also making it seem so fresh, tense and thoroughly 2012.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown PC Review

 

As a fan of the original game, I was both excited and apprehensive at the news that Firaxis and 2K Games would be developing XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a modern take on the original turn-based tactical shooter in which the elite forces of humanity struggle...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown- PC

 

In 1994, Mythos Games and MicroProse released XCOM: UFO Defense, a game regarded even today as the best of all time. It was simple and frustratingly difficult, all at the same time, and PC gamers loved it. After 18 years of waiting, gamers of all...

It might seem that I’m being unnecessarily hard on XCOM: Enemy Unknown, but it’s tough love. It’s like a favorite old car — you can see the flaws, but that doesn’t stop you from driving it until the wheels fall off. XCOM‘s one of the deepest, most...

XCOM Enemy Unknown

 

The best stories about XCOM always end in failure. The wipeout of a veteran squad member, the panic, destruction and downward spiral towards failure. In an age of broadened gaming audiences, lowered difficulty barriers and constant hand holding XCOM...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

 

Something old, something new, and many planetary visitors to welcome at the end of the barrel of a gun.

If you played the original, then this is a no brainer purchase; if you haven’t, then you are in for a lot of gameplay hours that will both challenge and enthrall you.

Firaxis deserve a medal for their work with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. They have managed to resurrect a beloved franchise and keep it true to its roots, while still offering a fresh experience that newcomers can enjoy. The gameplay is strategic and exciting,...

There are always casualties in war. Major Sarah ‘Havok' Cook, a veteran of the Great Invasion with 57 confirmed kills, becomes the latest victim of the alien menace, struck by a plasma cannon round that blew her apart like a possum under an articulated...

It’s never easy resurrecting a beloved franchise after such a long time away. Not only do you have to please a fanbase who’ll expect a huge list of very specific things from the new edition, but you’re also trying to appeal to a new generation of...
