He was so nice to this game.

There's never been anything to hate about the xcom games, turn based strategy at its best with the exception of Jagged Alliance 2.

I think he hit the nail on the head with the repeating cycle of:

Oh, new weapons to kill aliens with > Alien allows for new weapons, can't wait to kill some with this.

Sucks you into the whole 'just one more mission' routine. :)

Gonna get this game for Christmas :) I like a bit of strategy every now and then. I Enjoy Valkria Chronicles & Disgaea 4

It's a great game, well worth picking up. It's hard at first but once you get your bearings it becomes addictive.

Blastoise1904d ago

Sounds like all the best games to be honest lol

beerkeg1904d ago

Not really. In most games, when you start you can finish the game even if you screw up in a few places. In Xcom, if you screw up you will be f***ed. And once you are f***ed you will need to start a new game as you won't be able to beat it.

That's the difference.

Wow a positive review!
I think zero puncutaion's are hilarious, but they're always negative or at least gives that impression regardless of weather he was in favor of the game or not, good to see one that finally was clearly liked.
