XCOM: Enemy Unknown – How to Survive Your First Months: An FTG Guide

FTG writes- For those of you that have picked up XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you may have realized that the game is quite hard and very unforgiving. A mistake as small as positioning your troops wrong or forgetting to put your unit on overwatch can cost you the mission, or even the game. On my first try of XCOM, I barely lased three months before my best soldiers were brutally slaughtered by Chryssalids and a handful of countries decided to withdraw support. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)

For some games it's best to learn from one's mistakes. It adds replayability and is part of the fun.

Yep I'm just now getting to dig into it after Dishonored and Borderlands 2 addiction but I'm slowly learning from my mistakes.

The non-combat portion takes some trial and error but I'm liking the complexity of it a lot.

Great game so far.

I really could have cared less about the existence of this game. The last time I saw it was i think a video of the FPS version. From then I just said no way to the game. Then all these great reviews come out and i find out it's actually a turn based strategy game. I ran out and bought it and I'm glad I did. It's got to be my favorite game of the year so far, something so refreshing compared to the non-stop FPS barrages we've had. I suggest everyone give this game a shot, you won't be disappointed!

Yeah, the FPS is 2K Marin's game.

As for advice, i'd just say that this game hates you and wants you to fail. If you remember that, you should do ok.

I can see where the confusion could happen. It's not often a title crosses genres in such a short time span like this. Had it not been for my knowledge of past X-Com games I would have assumed the recent FPS was just that..an FPS. It is true that I saw the FPS news online before I heard about the turn based X-Com remake. I almost missed this game because of it.

I'm currently playing this game on classic & ironman mode, and its whooping my behind. The game is still fun though. Definitely got me to become a fan of Xcom, and i look forward to their future installment. so glad i talked my brother into buying this!
