Xcom Enemy Unknown PS3 review – Middle management has never been so badass OPM

OPM: Funny how canny presentation can completely alter your perception of something. Underneath Xcom’s approachable, sci-fi movie exterior operates a precision machine of cold, hard maths, sharp strategy, forward planning and yet more maths. But layer said mechanism with a glossy coating of action-game camera angles, cinematic killcams and a damnably likeable ambience neatly straddling ‘epic’ and ‘schlocky’, and you can forget any hint of this being a stuffy beard-stroking affair. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 9/10
