One of my favorite game of all time!XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a great game, but the Enemy Within expansion makes it even better! It adds tons of new content, such as maps, enemies, mission, and more! Both the humans and alien gain new technology and soldiers. This makes an already difficult game more difficult, but thats the fun of it! I would recommend this game to all strategy fans.

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.

enemy unknown was betterHere 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.

Best strategy game hands downLooking 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.
