XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Combat mechanics and physics : broken. Good if you're up for a brainless turn-based + base management

Destroying a classic
Fallout 3 is not a Fallout game. It's Oblivion with guns, as has been said before. That said, Oblivion was much better. The melee addictiveness and brutality is gone, any RPG strategy build-up is ter...
So. Having played the two KOTOR's before this and absolutely enjoying their virtues while recognizing their faults, I was excited to see what would come next from BioWare.. The first contact were ...
