XCOM: Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organisation called XCOM. As the XCOM commander, you will defend against a terrifying global alien invasion by managing resources, advancing technologies, and overseeing combat strategies and individual unit tactics.

The original X-COM is widely regarded as one of the best games ever made and has now been re-imagined by the strategy experts at Firaxis Games. XCOM: Enemy Unknown expands on that legacy with an entirely new invasion story, enemies and technologies to fight aliens and defend Earth. You will control the fate of the human race through researching alien technologies, creating and managing a fully operational base, planning combat missions and controlling soldier movement in battle.

  • Strategy evolved: XCOM: Enemy Unknown couples tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences and on-the-ground combat
  • Strategic base: Recruit, customise and grow unique soldiers and manage your personnel. Detect and intercept the alien threat as you build and expand your XCOM headquarters
  • Tactical combat: Direct soldier squads in turn-based ground battles and deploy air units such as the Interceptor and Skyranger
  • Worldwide threat: Combat spans the globe as the XCOM team engages in over 70 unique missions, interacting and negotiating with governments around the world

 Incredible Game.

As a massive fan of the original, I was extremely sceptical about this revamp being released. Thankfully I didnt have to worry at all as the finished result is fantastic. Firaxis have reworked it in key areas to make the game a far less complicated yet more involving game in which you actually care about your soldiers. Games such as 'Brothers in Arms' should take note. Very few bad things to say about it except for a few frame rate issues and the customisation could have been a bit more in depth.

Like the original then you will love this would of have given 5* but for the fact that in later missions the game has a tendency to freeze up and needs to be rebooted hence the save often.

Major patch needed for the freeze outs as in begining of game you can play for hours before it crashes the more you research and the more fancy guns the more chance of freeze.

Save often!!!!

 Wished i'd have played the demo first!!!!!

Do not be fooled by other 5 star comments about this game, if this game was reduced to a Pound i wouldn't buy it, luckily i purchased my copy from somewhere else that had it on offer, i probably played this game for about 15 mins before i'd had enough then took it to a well known trade in shop who gave me 3 Pound more than i paid for it, this game really is pants you have been warned.

 Not for little boys!!

This game is class. Its a turn based strategic game and it has had me hooked since i downloaded it off the PS Plus. its a real nice chance from FPS and if you love turn based games you will love this. OK its over pretty quickly but it has replayability and you can build an ultimate squad of bad asses but you still have to manage your base and resources. the online is pretty kool too. its basically a team deathmatch but you can play humans or aliens or a mix of both. its pretty good fun and will have you hooked... my advise play the campaign first though and get to know the game and the abilities of the charaters available.

 Better Than Expected

I have been debating about this game for some time and with the reduction in price decided to take the plunge.

For those wanting flat out action I would avoid but those wanting a bit of turn based strategy, its is great.

Graphics not the best but game play for me is fantastic.

One word of warning, as soon as you personalise your units and name them you all of a sudden become more attached and battles become that much more complex as you try to save your leveled up units.

If you are still debating, don't, buy it.
