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...

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...

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...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

 

Elite sniper Alex Osborn rolled out of covered and lined his sights on the Muton crouching behind the trash can.

Persistently engaging; Strategic combat, not taught through boring tutorial; Research, build, gather, rinse, repeat; Sound, style, and substance; "X-ray terminated." X-COM lives

Some pointless tech-trees; Crashes, bugs, stuttering on consoles

Despite this, and despite so much else, X-COM: Enemy Unknown feels like the revival of not just a brand, but a genre. If you told me six years ago that I'd be playing a full $60 turn-based strategy game, I probably would have zapped you with a plasma...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown (PC) Review

 

Does this reboot manage to update the classic series into a new century? Or does humanity fail to evolve against the alien hordes and Earth end up being destroyed? 411mania's Marc Morrison finds o inside.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

 

I can't really explain why, but way back in the mid-90s, I wound up playing a lot more of the original XCOM's sequel, Terror from the Deep, than the original. I'm not sure why that happened, because even I could see that the original was the better...

Does Firaxis' re-imagined XCOM perfectly bring back the tactics and excitement of the MicroProse original? Not exactly, but they've still made an excellent tactical game that works just as well on all three platforms. FPS players and fans of instant...

Terror, tension, tactics, and triumph.

Gripping, tense tactical combat; impressive look and atmosphere; excellent replayability

A few significant bugs; clumsy UI; no mid-battle inventory management

So if this is Batman Begins, does that mean X-COM: Enforcer is Batman & Robin? That... actually makes a lot of sense. Anyway, I kind of hate to see the old Time Units go, but we're in luck: they're back in Xenonauts, an indie X-COM homage that sticks...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review: Close Encounters

 

Firaxis lets a new generation in on the strategy gaming secret PC gamers have known for nearly 20 years.

Expert review by:

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

 

I dream of XCOM. I have fever dreams where I debate using my assault soldier's Run and Gun ability to flank an alien or play it safe and stay behind cover. I wish I was kidding or being hyperbolic, but I'm not. I gain new strategies as I lose sleep.

So, it’s fair to say that EU has some problems. While the game lacks the polish we’ve come to expect from Firaxis, it stands up as one of the most addicting and fun strategy games I’ve ever played. The game has its issues. It doesn’t help that it ends...
