XCOM: Enemy Unknown Demo Out Now On Xbox Live

Dealspwn.com reports: "XCOM: Enemy Unknown is bloody brilliant, but if you don't want to take my word for it in our 9/10 review, why not try it out for yourself? A demo is now available on Xbox Live if you're a Gold subscriber, giving you the chance to sample its rock-hard action, strategic choice and controller-friendly interface.

As far as I know, a similar demo is slated to hit [the European] PSN tomorrow." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)

Yeah this has been on my Radar for a long time, I know it ****s on XCOM fans but whatever, a good game is a good game

You're thinking of XCOM (2K Marin FPS Reboot), this game is a remake of the original X-COM with classic strategy style gameplay.

I assume this is the same linear, tutorial demo they relased on PC? It doesn't really show off the actual "game" too well - always the problem with tutorial levels...

Downloading now.

Game looks good. It kinda reminds me of the game Full Spectrum Warrior.

Gonna have to give this demo a go!

Don't see too many RTS games released these days. Looks interesting, but the game looks hard.

It's not an RTS.

Turn-based strategy mosacra.

game is epic cool, on pc at least, just finished the first hour and a half and am loving it.

if you have intrest in these types of tactical games, its a great way to get your feet wet, it is nowhere near the complexity of a game like shogun 2 or Crusader Kings II, but it is FAR more complex that 99% of console titles and would be a nice addition to any gamers library!

Just finished the demo, played it previously on PC and it does play better with a pad then with mouse & keyboard. I usually prefer m&k but in this case the pad works better. Good thing we have the option to play with a pad on PC too.

Cant wait for the full game, out on friday over here.
