Review: XCOM Enemy Unknown

 

I'm somewhat new to the strategy genre, not because I've never played the games before, but because I was never all that great at them for whatever reason when I was growing up. Civilization V really warmed me up to the genre, and ironically it is also...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

 

Although I was never a diehard?X-COM?fan (yes, there was a hyphen at some point!), I heartily enjoyed most of the games in the franchise, particularly the few in the early-mid 90s. What made the games so special was the fact that they combined both...

One of the most dangerous things you can do in the games industry is take a beloved franchise from the 90s and “reboot” it. It's nearly as dangerous as posting on a forum populated by “hardcore” gamers saying that you think Call of Duty is an...

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is not just the best strategy game this year, it’s the best strategy game this generation and possibly the best ever strategy game on consoles.

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

 

If you missed out on the XCOM series the first time around, when it first debuted (for most of us, anyway) on the PC and PlayStation, you really missed something. It was one of the better turn-based strategy games at the height of video gaming, with...

You'll need to carefully place them in their best spots, whether it's someone who can make a clean shot for the door or a rocket-carrying mercenary who can level aliens foolishly hiding behind a car. It's also important to keep defense in mind,...

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.

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...
