XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Summary

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organization 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 XCOM 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 will expand 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, customize 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.

@thewastedyouth Because it was a halo game, that alone would attract those who generally don't play strategy games. Most console gamers seem to go for shooters and action games, games like this generally find a much bigger market on the PC.

@ thewastedyouth - Ouch, flop territory. I thought the critical acclaim would give this game some decent sales.

I haven't played it yet. Doesn't sound like my type of game. But I'm gonna give it a try regardless when I can grab it for $20.

So glad the console version got great reviews. I was worried that something might be lost converting to console controls. So looking forward to playing this I hope this has legs like a supermodel. Almost as excited by this as valkyria chronicles before I bought it. Best game of the generation came at the start, maybe second best game will come at the end.
