Rebooting it Right with XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Any attempt at bringing previously established characters, settings and storylines into a new, revitalized game requires a delicate balancing act between creativity and homage. Trying to maintain the spirit of the original work while changing it enough to become something that actually feels new rarely pleases existing fans, while simple reiteration almost never impresses those who weren't interested in the game being rebooted in the first place. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown)
