XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review | GameTrailers

GameTrailers: "XCOM: Enemy Unknown charges you with what amounts to a challenging dream job. Because you’re put in direct control of how the game progresses, you’ll experience the bracing feeling of being in charge. The game performs and controls almost equally well on consoles as it does on a PC, and a range of difficulty levels makes the game reasonably accessible regardless of your mettle, adjusting the way aliens engage on the battlefield you in addition to tweaking costs and damage values. It all amounts to a great victory. XCOM makes a complicated design feel smoother and more elegant without losing the feel and nuance of the original work." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 9.1/10

good looking game.. It has guns & aliens yet this actually requires thought.. This will make a good addition to my PS3 collection.. I would go PC on this but i dont like sitting at my desk playing games.. rather be on the couch w junk food

For some reason, up until just a couple of days ago I thought this game was a FPS...because, you know, like DivineAssault said: aliens and guns almost always = FPS nowadays.

This looks excellent, though. It's good to see Firaxis spreading it's wings a bit.

There was an fps version that was in development, it is now believed to be a third person shooter that will be download only (note: not the same developers as this).

Hah, I knew I remembered a trailer for that. Bubble for helpfulness.

I thought the IGN review was a tad humorous. One of the cons they stated was that it had a steep learning curve in the strategic game.....hmmm.... Isn't that the point of a strategy game? :)
