NowGamer: XCOM brought strategy to consoles without losing anything in the process, and that’s something that should be commended.
I'm a stickler for details, I couldn't look past the fact that action points have been removed in the remake. Loses a lot of the tactical elements in the ground phases found in the original as a result.
I'd still rate it pretty highly though, a solid remake.
One of my top games this year. I'm happy with it winning some GotYs
XCOM is easily in my top 3 games of 2012.
I would say it was in my top 5 but regardless it was one of the best games this gen.
