XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Review [GamingLives]

GamingLives takes a look at Firaxis' re-imagining of the cult classic UFO: Enemy Unknown (XCOM: UFO Defense in the USA) and whether it works well as a standalone as well as a reboot.

"Underdogs. We love them. We root for them as they fight seemingly hopelessly against a foe that outclasses them in almost every aspect; be it films, games or real life most people want the underdog to pull it off. In XCOM: Enemy Unknown you are that underdog, except it isn’t just you – a lone hero fighting the good fight – it’s the entire human race." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 9/10
