I originally purchased X-com with two other games as a bundle intending to never play it. I finally gave the game a shot and I fell in love. The comical guns as well as the mind blowing strategy made this a instant favorite. The game is part turn based, part economy. After, each battle you have you are brought back to head quarters where you can purchase weapons and build facilities. However, you should probably be careful buying too much in the beginning can come back to bite you. As the details imply, the game is about a Alien invasion. Don't let the concept fool you they did far more than stellar with the concept. If you worried it would be cheesy, don't. If your in to using your brain, its a great game. Again the graphics aren't the best but, I believe they did the best with what they had. It makes up in game play, what it lacks in graphics. Next, their is a online portion of the game where you can actually play as aliens. This, is a very interesting part of the game. Lastly, if you look up footage your going to think its the most boring game in the world. You can only enjoy X-COM one way. Through actually playing it. Your not wasting your money when it comes to this game.
