Not happy with the changes, almost everything I liked about Enemy Unknown seems to have been modified 'for the modern day gamer'.

Well, one is a mindless shooter that touts itself as being "Tactical", whilst the other is a thoughtful turn based strategy game in which ur actions can have dire consequences which paves the way for emergent narratives. There, ive summarised both games.

@Prats1993 And they could both be good games. Especially since you haven't played The Bureau yet so your summary could be flawed.

Also Enemy Unknown had no driving narrative other than saving the earth from the evil aliens and they're promising that The Bureau has an actual driving narrative with a main character that has his own backstory and identity. That said it could all be lies and this could indeed be a mindless third person shooter. I haven't played the game either so I'm not as ready to judge it as you seem to be.
