What Gamespot Users have to say about X-COM: Terror From the Deep (1995)

  • User Rating 8.2

    Modern graphics may have moved on (although X-COM is by no means bad looking) but the gameplay is timeless. A true class

    For me, the X-COM series were (and in many ways still are) the best strategy games ever made and in my opinion, from the Deep was the best of them all (although UFO Defence is very close). B...

    Along with XCOM: UFO DEFENSE and Civilization, this game set the standard for turn base strategy games

    Addictive game. Period. This is one of the few games that manage to grab you and squeeze every available minute of your time so you can spend it on it. Everything is extremely well thought, except tha...

    It is time to go old school with this bad boy of a good game...........

    Rated on March 17, 2006 by Darthpathfinder

    If any game has one thing to call its own its X-com TFTD it has (for the time) the best under water combat which is fun and at times can get anoying when a grenade lands at you mens feet. The graph...

    A very good sequal to the immense innovative X-com: UFO

    Rated on April 02, 2006 by madmenno

    This game offers about the same amount of gameplay then it's predecessor. The game itself isn't much different only this time the aliens try to take over the world beneath the surface of our seas and ...

    A great sequal in a great serie.

    Rated on November 25, 2007 by Atzel

    I think most reviewers give TFTD a bad deal. Okay, it's not terribly innovative, but it sticks to the concept, unlike the later X-Com sequels. For starters, it's just as atmospheric as it's big brothe...

    Difficult, and little more than a mission-pack, but nonetheless great.

    Rated on March 01, 2011 by MaskJackal

    Terror From The Deep has a lot of reasons to be hated by the X-Com fanbase. For one, it is merely a mission-pack sequel. The visuals have been redone, the weapons and aliens renamed, but it is still...
