From the award-winning creators of Civilization comes an action-strategy game about civilization's last stand. Threatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth's governments unite to form an elite paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Game Once you get around the interface it's a great strategy game. Increasing difficulty, very linear or you can do side missions to boost squad experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Strategy This is the best strategy game I have ever played. The pacing is excellent, the tense fights, and the dreaded perma-death really makes you feel like you are in that control room. The characters are really cheesy and they feel like they should belong in a clique Sci-Fi movie. Still, the aliens are fun to fight, and naming your squaddies after family and friends is hilarious, especially when they get blasted into oblivion. I recommend this for anyone who likes a strategic challenge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best strategy game ever!!!!! I love this game! The single player game is a perfect recreation of the original with alot of improved graphics, better explanations and sound mechanics. Each time you win you unlock new abilities to make it the most challenging game you will ever play. It can be dangerous to play this game as it might cause you to ditch some friends or avoid work so you can keep playing. Multiplayer is mind blowing. If you love strategy this is for you. It is simple enough to get started but the possible squad combinations vs enemy compositions are endless. I have been playing it for almost a year and while I have a very high ranking, no single match can ever be taken for granted.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a fair tactical shooter game Lets just start put by fairness right.. We should both get to move the same amount of times per turn right ? Nope. My biggest problem is while I can't see any enemy ahead so I advance slowly right ? I click the next movement an bam! Enemy's have been spirited an without my turn ending the enemy's run right up on me an now my turn is over an I have three enemy's on my face an kill me all because I moved up one step.. I don't see how this is fair or logical that they get to go while its my turn mean this is a turn by turn game right ??? Don't play this game unless you want a unfair game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Addicting and fun I’m not a huge fan of tactical 3rd person shooters, but after hearing such good things about it I bought it, and boy am I glad I did the game play is fun and addicting and instead of just controlling an army you command a whole base at an ant farm view. You send satellites to other countries you use research to do alien autopsies and make new weapons and gear. Engineering makes new areas like a work shop or an alien containment centers. The barracks which is where you train your troops and you can name and customize each member however you want. It’s a fantastic game that should not be missed, even though it has been out for about 6 months this game is not getting old any time soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You Will Know Pain. Captain Leroy Jenkins. He was taken out by a Thin Man. A Thin Man for crying out loud. He may have fallen, but because of his brave sacrifice the squad could complete it's objective of murder all of the things. This is Xcom. It's the heart behind the game. Getting attached to your soldiers as you prance them around Plasma Fire and Cyberdiscs. You could always send out a Shiv, but you can personally name those. The gameplay itself rewarding. You are the Commander of a secret army that is defending the world against an alien invasion. You have battle and then you have the base. Both are well done and fun to play. Both can get intense. India needs a new satellite or they are gone from the Council bringing their money and support with them. You also need new weapons for your soldiers because Beserkers are NO JOKE. Also we need to replace Jenkins. I do wish that every soldier didn't sound the same and that my sniper didn't miss 2 shots at 94% with Double Tap, but hey, that's XCOM baby. Fluid from start to finish, you will learn to love this game as I have.
