Product Description

XCOM Enemy Unknown Game PC

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

XCOM Enemy Unknown has been getting great reviews from everyone and with good reason. Fast paced, exciting and addictive gameplay coupled with an intuitive home base allowing for full team customisation all lead to an overall great gaming experience. Multiplayer is also fun for fast paced skirmishes with friends or randoms online.

If you played the original XCOM: UFO Defense, this will defintly be a great revamp off it. The reason it gets an extra star is because of nostolgic value. The added cover bonus makes the game play much more exciting then the original. The only thing that were a bit dissapoint ing with this game is how short it feels and the ending is a bit dissapointing. The other aspect i loved of the original like the pyshic abilities of possesing the enemy characters, this felt like it came a bit too late in the game and hence did not really get a good work out.

X-COM:EU is a lot of things. It's a fun tactical shooter. It's an atmospheric experience not knowing what's around the corner, but knowing that if something is, it won't have a hard time killing your guys. It is addictive enough to want to go on past the next encounter. But the most important thing that X-COM should be noted for is that it's a game about discovery. Every half hour or so you come up against a new enemy or threat, and as a result new things to research, and as a subsequent result, new weapons, armor and other means of taking the fight to the enemy. It's a game about progress. While hardly as unforgiving as it's eldest sibling (although various tweaks in the second wave can bring it closer), the fact that losing your men and women as easily as you can means you're constantly cautious of the actions you take. In the process of the development of your soldiers, you become quite invested in their fate on the battlefield. By the end of the game, having a squad of titanically strong soldiers, knowing you've been with them from the start when they were rookies is a great feeling. In that respect, it truly is a game that gives out what you put in. The controls have been streamlined (or simplified from another perspective) but the objectives and gameplay remain predominantly the same - turn based, probability of hitting based on distance, skill of shooter, etc. Be forewarned, it's not perfect, nothing on the unreal engine ever is, and this game had a tendency to crash. That and the fact that you need a dlc to change armor color is a little cheeky, even if only a dollar or two. But when it works, it's a spectacular experience that you craft to your desire. I would definitely recommend X-COM.

I'm gonna make this quick get this fantastic strategy game! It's based off of the original XCOM series in the 90's and was awarded the best strategy game of all time. Now I think Total War and Civilization games have now proven otherwise, XCOM is just a great game to get into. Create your own path, and have a certain attachment to your soldiers.. especially when they die.. and that will happen more than once! The only issue I have with this game is its buggy Multi-player mode! FIX IT!! and then it would get an even better review from major reviewers. + Add some more maps Firaxis!
