XCOM: Enemy Within
Best strategy game hands down
Looking for a break from all the mindless killing? Enemy Within is like a chess match in some regards and you need to pick your moves accordingly. The expansion adds new life to a game begging for multiple play throughs to begin with. The upgrades, augments, and meta game itself become an addiction you look forward to even while on missions. There is no other game quite like this one and if you enjoy a game with a calmer pace that involves some serious decision making then you owe it to yourself to pick this up. The intensity of the missions becomes increasingly apparent as you progress and move further in the game. My advice to beginners is to focus on building satellite uplinks and allotting as many satellites as you can early on to the countries in need. Your monthly income will increase with each country you have a satellite in. Good luck and enjoy this one of a kind strategy game that is truly a legendary game.
A great game overall, wish they made more.
Battles are just right, not too long not too short. Game has unlimited potential for more content. Base constuction is done to perfection, enemy type are veried. It is simply the best RTS out now.
Im so pumped for this :D
I love...LOVE turn base strat games and RTS in general, i have xcom enemy unknown and love it to death accept for the 95% chance of hitting and you end up missing, but im really looking forward to this. A expansion that adds another resource, mechs, plenty of new maps and other goodies i cannot wait for this.
enemy unknown was better
Here are my biggest complaints. 1. Line Of Sight. Multiple times i was standing 5 feet away from enemy with no cover between us and I had 25-50% chance to hit. 2.Accuracy. Majority of the time u will miss and enemy will hit. 3.Cover Mechanic is the other thing that doesnt work. Majority of the time u are in full cover, the enemy will hit u. Seems like the cover just doesnt cover u at all. Get used to hiring new squad after every mission cause since cover doesnt work your squad will always be injured. I just remember from enemy unknown that I was able to complete 4 or 5 missions in a row without getting injured. Now everyone gets injured and its hard to complete missions with rookies all the time. In my opinion, enemy unknown was better.
Can't wait for this game! xcom by itself was awesome but there were glitchs they never patched also i hope there CO-OP it would make this game 10/10 if it does it would be really fun. in Co-op mode you and a friend start out with 2 soldiers each and when you upgrade your soldiers then you and your friend will have up to 3 to 4 soldiers each but to be fair in co-op there should be more aliens in co-op mode to make the game a bit hard also if there is co-op there should be ways to kick players who are trolling etc. also in multiplayer there should make teams like 2 vs 2 with big maps with cool game modes like hardcore mode etc. so if any dev's see this post then Please Put Co-op!!!.
And you thought the first XCOM was tough...
With new enemies, maps, and perks for my soldiers my entire strategy will change because of this game.
