    The only thing more terrifying than the aliens are the bugs that invaded this otherwise superb game.

    Turn-based strategy? Good! Tactical strategy? Good! Both together in one top-shelf package of premium production value? Good!! The fine people at 2K Games and Firaxis have brought us a wonderful addition to our gam... Read Full Review

    Poor Usability Mars XCom: Enemy Unknown

    With its old school difficulty and gameplay. XCOM Enemy Unknown is one hell of an experience.

    Story: XCOM: Enemy Unknown has a rather simple story and set up. Aliens have invaded Earth and the world is plunged into chaos on how to handle the threat of the invaders. With no other option remaining, the world's nati... Read Full Review

    Good old-school game

    I recovered a bit of my lost faith in console games. Now I see that big turn-based productions are also being made, and XCOM is a good example. It reminds me of the good old times playing some similar PC classics. There... Read Full Review
