Product Details:

From the award-winning creators of Civilization comes an action-strategy game about humanity's last stand. Threatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth's governments unite to form a secret paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack. As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion by creating and managing a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle.

  • Worldwide Threat: Combat spans the globe as the XCOM team engages in over 70 unique missions, interacting and negotiating with governments around the world.
  • Strategic Base of Operations: Recruit, customize and evolve unique soldiers to take into battle, and then intercept and research alien technology to expand your weapons and capabilities.
  • Tactical Combat: Plan combat missions, direct the actions of your soldiers in incredible turn-based ground battles, and deploy air like the Interceptor and Skyranger units to stop the alien threat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome game! This game is better than what I had expected. Has good graphics and gameplay. Yes you do get attach to your squad especially the high ranking ones. It keeps you wanting to replay the game to see if you do better than the last time. One word of caution your PC must have Windows 7 or 8 in order to be able to play it, I had to upgrade my PC. Other then that it's an awsome game enjoy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from pathetic I could write a highly detailed review of this game, but it simply isn't worth the time. This game is a pale shadow of the original x-com. The original, now 18 years old, offered more strategic and tactical options than this game. Yes this one may have some pretty colors, good sound, and cool little cut scenes. However there are still plenty of bugs, you are extremely limited in your choices for your squads, your tactics, and your overall strategy runs like it is on rails. If you are looking for something mildly entertaining and amusing, this is it. Wait until it goes below $20. That is really all it is worth. (This game adheres to the new trend of the last several years, to just keep making games dumber and dumber)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Possible GOTY Modern take on a classic master piece. Jake and crew have made me a believer! This game is not for the faint of heart. Ironman is the only way to play.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Giggity! I was addicted to the original X-com games. This new installment has the heart and soul of the original with awesome graphics and really good miltiplayer. You don't have to be a fan of the original to love this game. I bought a copy for my nephew. He was skeptical since he really doesn't like RTS games but this one turned out the be the exception. I recommend this game to anyone who likes games which are heavy in strategy. I only wish PC players could play the console players online.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game, could have been better It's a great game, fun to play, easy to learn, just not in depth enough. It pays a great homage to the original X-Com games but, it is basically just that, the original X-Com game with better graphics. Character development is lacking, there are only 4 character classes and the skill tree is extremely linear. Research is also lacking, many items come from the skill tree rather than research, I would say there are less items than in the original game. The game was dumbed down for console gaming, taking out many RPG and strategy elements I personally loved about this series. It's just too simple. Real X-Com fans will be more impressed with the UFO series(Aftershock, Afterlife, Aftermath.) It is a fun game and worth buying but, a slight let down for hardcore strategy gamers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great!! This game is Excellent!! As I get older it gets harder and harder to get into game's any more and this one is great, It pulled me in for hours. I would like to make some DLC and another Xcom in the future.
