Spong - XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

Spong - I'm no XCOM vet, so coming into Enemy Unknown I had little idea of what to expect. It doesn't take long to figure out, though, that you are in control of a squad in direct confrontation with aliens. For (as is always the case with these things) you are Earth's last hope. Oh my. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 7/10

I'd give this game a 90%.

Well I've just started playing it today, so it's a little early to make a final judgement, but I'm loving it so far. I'm being spoiled this week, Dishonored and this to play. Good times.

It's one of those games you can't put down easily. If it's anything like X-COM from the PS1 and PC it will eat up many hours of your time.

Anyway how's dishonored? I hear good things about it, comparing it to Deus Ex, but I'm just not seeing it just by looking at the gameplay videos. What gives?
beerkeg  +   924d ago
It's excellent, and it is very much like Deus Ex, you have a lot of choice in what you can do in a mission, and with large areas to explore. It's also a lot like thief, the dialogue especially.

If you love Deus Ex/Thief/Bioshock you will love Dishonored.

Over the last two weeks, i got Borderlands 2, Dishonoured, Fifa 13, Torchlight 2 and XCOM.....spending most of the time with XCOM.....the game is a blast....and that's from a guy who isn't in strategy gaming.....In my list of RTS this gen, i would keep it above starcraft, civ and warhammer 20k....

I don't think they've done a good job with the few RTS games that were released this generation. I'm glad they finally released one with quality. Hope this sells enough to reignite the genre.

xcom is AWESOME!!

loving it, hope they do some steam workshop/mod love with it in the future, it's also pretty brutaly hard, for me at least, about 7 hours in...and I like it that way :)

dishonored is on my buy list soon as well.

kudos to both devs for making excellent games that the people are really loving.
