Great Game! Wish Xcom made more like thisThe game has a great story and to address the origin of Xcom. When it comes to a Xcom it’s a single player game so I don’t look for multiple player. The game is a great change of pace when it comes to the Xcom series. Instead of dealing with RPG percentages and turn based concepts you have a free flow game with some RPG concepts. Very fun and simple. I’m very happy with the game and wish I had played it sooner. I really hope they make a second game like this. However don’t look for new concepts of gaming. There are other games that the gameplay will feel like such as gears of war and mass effect. Coronavirus has everyone in the house so this game made good use of my time. Really enjoyed it. Replayed on hard difficulties to get all the achievements.

Fresh Origins story of XCOMGame is a great origins story for XCOM, and delivers it in sync with what feels like could be a plausible alternate history, the one the government covered up. please note though that the only 2 downsides to this game are 1 the control of your squadmates during quick assignments can be a little quirky at times, and there is no multiplayer which as a shooter is almost a requirement to retain players long term

Glitchy, clunky, and not funI really wanted this game to be good. I loved the idea, but it just wasn't executed well. Cutscenes contain tons of glitches, from people simply not being there to mouths not moving. Gameplay plays like an average 3rd person shooter, with nothing that an XCOM game should have. Nothing interesting about the storyline either. It just seems rushed, and feels like it could have been amazing, if it had been release 6-12 months later.
