UFO: Afterlight Review
It may be an upgrade on its predecessors, but UFO: Afterlight still comes with some significant problems.
Any reasonable review of any game should only be made after at least completing the game, however I feel that the GS reviewer only had a quick look through UFO Afterlight, missing out on the bulk of the great features of... Read Full Review20 of 20 users found the following review helpful
