This game is awesome... I purchased it on day 1, and soon realized my computer couldn't handle it quite properly. My campaing, and battles were supper laggy, and turns took a long time and it was totally frustrating... However... I couldn't stop playing!!! It never crashed on me, I spent about 16 hours during the first 2 days. I just got a new procesor, and I should be good to go. This game is great, it has some issues with the ai and some minor bugs, but they are releasing a patch this friday, and one every week after that. It's gonna be a great game guys!

With so many games to play and so little time it's hard to consider mediocre games like this. Although i enjoyed the first one in the series.

@ggregd @zeusbark @Zevvion I totally agree with you, the game is not like EU. But that is precisely my point, it's a very different game in the same "Universe". But that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. I played it on Hard difficulty (or whatever it's called) and if you don't manage your squad properly you're dead. I played over 70 hours of Xcom;EU and yes it was more enjoyable and tactical, but that doesn't mean this is a horrible game.

If they somehow allowed campaign co-op to have 2 of your friends helping you instead of the ai, the game would be super awesome!

@Zevvion @zeusbark That's were you are wrong my friend, first of all, being an Xcom game they are certainly taking as a reference it's latest succesfull predecessor.

Example A: @ 00:52 Kevin calls it "not a great spinoff". If that is not a comparison well...

Example B: @ 00:56 Kevin says the "Xcom strategie series is known for it's tense and riveting gameplay, the Bureau however copies some of the mechanics but non of it's esence" That's another comparison, or part of the same, as you wish, but a comparison non the less.

Example C: @ 01:43 Kevin says: "The Bureau's structure somewhat resembles that of a clasical xcom strategie game..."

Example D: @ 02:41 Devin says: "But this is one area in which the shooter copies xcom mechanics without chaneling what makes them special... goes on until 03:04" if that is not a direct comparison I don't know what is.

It just keeps going and going, I could write a whole essay on this but I don't have the energy

Sure it has flaws, but worst games have received better scores. They are directly comparing it to Xcom: Enemy Unknown, and I believe that that has some weight on their score.

When I said I had my own opinion I meant that even if a review says this or that I have the super ability to discern what's Bullshit and what's not. I can tell if I like something without other people telling me if I should like it or not. !

@Zevvion @zeusbark Yes I've read the reviews, but I have the incredible ability (I might be a mutant with super powers I'm not sure) of forming my own opinions.
