UFO: Extraterrestrials Review
An X-COM clone that falls short of its inspiration, UFO: Extraterrestrials is only for desperate diehards.
Not a fair review from Gamespot. If you played stategy games like Panzer General,Final Fantasy Tactics and Advance Wars you will love this game because its better than all of them. First the Good. - Develop & custom... Read Full Review7 of 7 users found the following review helpful
UFO Extraterrestrials is pure plagiarism. You will not find another game closer to the original X-com out there. In addition there's some solid improvements which help cut down on micromanagement. But by 2007 (Original R... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
Just started playing this since I saw the sequel is due out later this year, and after looking at the community, installed the Bman Ease of Use mod which is pretty standard now. I really don't understand why this game... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful

Best game I have played since X-COM . It is just like X-COM. There are more aliens than from previous X-COM. More to research and build. If someone could make a game like this in a more 3D fashion it would sell off t... Read Full Review2 of 2 users found the following review helpful
As many have said before, an "ok" game, made great by the modding community. My rating is for the modded game. A Dime. Check out this link: http://www.ufo-extraterrestrials.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2668 ... Read Full Review8 of 10 users found the following review helpful
The base gameplay is much more streamlined. You don't have to hire individual scientists of manufacturers, they simply arrive when you build a new lab or factory. There's no hiring, firing, or training soldiers. Early... Read Full Review3 of 4 users found the following review helpful
