    The best game I ever played....

    Apocalypse, despite its numerous bugs and obvious lack of fully glorious completion, is a great micro-management game.

    The BEST strategy game I had ever the pleasure to play, and I have tried many in my almost 25 years of game playing.

    Good but not as good as it predecessors.

    Rated on April 02, 2006 by madmenno

    If you played xcom 1 and 2 don't expect to mutch from this one. It still has a lot to offer but not as mutch as its predecessors. First of all you only have 1 city to protect so actually building o...

    Rather than doing it again, it's more like going there again

    Great game, anyone who doesn't like it probably couldn't handle it, or didn't put enough time into it.

    Rated on May 16, 2006 by Howzer123

    Very indepth game, worth obtaining (if you still can). An exceptionally challenging game. I have been playing this for years, refining my strategy and I have never beaten it. The graphics and sound...
