XCOM: Enemy Unknown Review | Awesome Games

Aidan from Awesome Games writes: 'Worlds are at war again in Firaxis’ XCOM Enemy Unknown, a slick reboot of the ‘90s DOS classic – which any fan will tell you didn’t need one. Invaded by an unidentified flying armada, the game focused on turn-based management as you battled an alien enemy, letting you lead humanity’s first line of defense as a commander. Sid Meier returns to his old IP – once with Micropose, now with Firaxis – and XCOM, sure as the name ‘Sid’ should signal – is a brilliant console strategy sim that has enough depth for long-time Meier masters, with intuitive real-time action that will make newcomers feel like pros — that is, after a few hours.' (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 4.5/5
