Go Critic: XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review

Go Critic: There aren’t many games on shelves, physical or digital, that can instill the same brand of emotional tumult as Firaxis’ and 2K Games’ revival of XCOM does with so little effort. One moment, your crack squad of extraterrestrial face-booters are ankle deep in what happens after they run out of bubble gum. Then the next turn, a lowly private is the only one left to recount the tale of his battle brothers’ swift and resounding defeat. As it does really nothing else all that impressively, XCOM is a clinic on how to create a thinking man’s game by rewarding care and tactics with the elevating sense of accomplishment, and how to punish carelessness with the stalwart sting of defeat. (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 88/100

Agree 100%. I hate the thought of some people missing out on this one because of all the other stuff out but if you like strategy at all its a must-buy.
