Ben Dutka: "Strategy really isn’t my milieu. It wasn’t back when Command & Conquer came out and it still isn’t. However, once you toss in a turn-based mechanic and allow me to take my time, ala Final Fantasy Tactics or Valkyria Chronicles, my ears suddenly perk up and I’m going, 'Okay, now I want to try it.' And the blend of action and strategy found in XCOM: Enemy Unknown is such that if I were a bigger fan of the genre, I’d be drooling all over the controller. And that’s because, despite a few small drawbacks, the game really is that good."
