I only played the first part of this game and I don't know so far. I'm sure I might like it if I played it more but I think its just a hard game to get into.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a remake and it would have been nice if they would have managed to make it as good as the original. Less content, Static maps, and less versitile characters makes me go look to see where I can repurchase the Original!
Being a huge fan of the original I would have settled for Stable.. Game crashes and characters relocating themselves to other parts of the map make the game difficult to play.
Plays so much like the older titles, yet is a distinctly excellent re-imagining of the franchise. Time and again we've seen other such re-introductions of popular "oldies" fall flat on their virtual faces.
Thanks Kevin, great review.
This game is SO much Fun! I played it for 6 hours straight last night and that is something I have not done with any game for years.
Building your base, researching new items for new armor, weapons and items for your base, your ships and yourself. Promoting, outfitting, customizing and recruiting new soldiers. So fun and I just did not want to stop.
Great story, nice graphics (nothing cutting edge but nice), good sound effects and more importantly just plain freaking fun. It is a VERY addicting game.
Just like he said, your biggest enemy in the game is your patience. As long as you keep your cool, you will do fine.
AC3 or Xcom? After playing this demo it's a no-brainer, Xcom all the way! Now I just have to decide which console to get it on.
Firaxis did a really nice job here. Although not as good as the original UFO Defense this game clearly appeals to older players and new ones alike without losing too much of what made the original one of the best games ever made. In a gaming generation with almost non-existant innovation this game comes pretty close as an instant modern classic.
Great game, I love this. Its like the 1990 game.
moreover if you compare this to medieval/magical RPG Tactic game.
Ogre Tactics, Final Fantasy Tactics... Almost the same gameplay the differences are XCOM's Gameplay have a unique strategical and tactical gameplay that will never find to those.
anyway kudos. The best remake of XCOM deserving as a 8.5 - 9.0 ratings
This looks good. Is it a bit like Valkyria Chronicles in terms of gameplay? Also is there an easy mode? I don't like getting stuck in strategy games.
I still have the PS1 versions (Enemy and Terror) of this game and am happy I can let em gather some dust for a while now cause this one is gonna suck up a load of my life again, DAMN YOU ALIEN SCUM.
Great game! Great Review! Check out my gameply vid and let me know what you guy and gals think!
Amazing game for me is the Best game i have played this year and one of the greatest games i have ever played, an instant classic.
@lutarian you just said exactly ! What I wanted to say. I only want to stress on the fact you said "Something I have not done with any game for years " " VERY adicting game " Wanna just add " I wish gameloft would port it on IOS , I don't like AVHs graphics on IOS , gameloft are a awesome when it comes to IOS gaming "
@Bigboi500 I'm a big fan of strat games and, I have played too many FPS over the last couple of years so, it was a no brainer for me too.
really ? i didn't find much innovation in it, only simplification, and much more than what was needed
@Anteares need to get a life in order to play a game? contradicting much?
@robtion Don't know about Valkyria Chronicles, but yes, there is an easy mode which combined with unlimited saves makes the game a cakewalk, if that's what you are looking for.
@Derugs Well, it forces you to use your brain.
@Derugs I agree, Drugs. Having to think sounds rubbish. Before you know it people will be playing chess & reading books. Craziness!
@Derugs So I guess you don't like any FPS games either then?
@Derugs well it's kind of like a chess game... you know, for smart people. So you might want to avoid it.
@Derugs Yeah, CoD 5984305603 is so much more fun, but then again, if everyone had the same taste in games publishers would have it to easy by forking out same shit over and over again.
@Derugs You are missing a LOT. lol.
@Derugs yeah, it's a tactics game. strategy based. different kind of play
@solutiontp The new one is way easier than the old one. the old one would go out of it's way humiliate you.
it's a masterpiece, go and buy it, i sincerely recomend it to everybody.
