Set in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, The Bureau tells the origin story of the clandestine XCOM organisation’s first encounter with a mysterious and devastating enemy. Originally established as America’s covert defense against the Soviet Union, The Bureau must adapt and overcome a threat unlike anything the world has faced before. As special agent William Carter, players will call the shots and pull the trigger, leading their squad of agents in the high-stakes secret war for humanity’s survival. Paramount to repelling the outside threat is The Bureau’s ability to cover-up the enemy’s existence in order to prevent worldwide panic.

This is a great game that for this price is a super bargain. It is a good shooter that is fun and has a great storyline to it. The graphics are great and also there is a sort of adventure feeling to it. Recommended Buyers: Players that liked the other XCOM games.

A REALLY clever take on the series past (mostly real time strategy games), this alteration of the tried and true genre was a brave move, but paid off handsomely in this tight production. A great setting, beautiful character design, an ingenious tactical set-up, this whole game reeks of well thought out and well paced action.
