XCOM Enemy Unknown review: A pristine alien alternative to the modern shooter | Digital Trends

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a pulsing mass of contradictions. It’s a gritty story about burly, gun-toting marines fending off aliens in crumbling cities and dark forests while ducking in and out of cover, but XCOM only looks like the average Gears of War clone when you glance at it. Peer closer and you find that shooting aliens is actually a game of patient strategy, played by inches in the field, where success depends on slowly building up the skills of a private army. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 9.5/10

EA should learn a lesson from this game. This is how you redo a game!

Now EA, go make a proper redo of the Syndicate game and not that crap you released months back.
