IGN Preview - XCOM: Enemy Unknown is Turn-Based Gameplay, Real-Time Fun

IGN:

XCOM: Enemy Unknown lead designer Jake Solomon sits at the far end of a table in Firaxis Games' conference room. He's about to let me get my hands on what's been his passion project for the last four years. But Solomon, a diehard fan of the classic PC strategy series, isn't about to turn his baby over before setting things up. The fact that “turn-based” is a taboo term for many gamers—especially dedicated console players—isn't lost on him, so he takes no chances in managing expectations. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)

This game is looking really good so far. Hope it delivers on all fronts when it releases.

Can't wait! Civilization Revolution was a ton of fun, and this looks like it will be as well.

This game looks too good to be true, Lol. Only because I have been waiting for another valkyria chronicles on console and instead I get a new version of one of the best games ever.

I also wanna know about the one 2k is making. Did they ditch it because of this true turned based strategy game. Wow, did they get blind sided.
