Xcom: Enemy Unknown Review - Eskimo Press

Xcom: Enemy Unknown is a turn based sci-fi strategy game from Firaxis games, the studio that brought us Civilization. Utilizing a style of game play that may be seen as outdated in the modern video game scene, is Xcom relevant, and more importantly, is it any good? (PC, PS3, Xbox 360, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) 9.5/10

9.5 is a worthy score for this game because Xcom EU is a fantastic reboot for the series.

Good review, I agree with most of what you said about the game.

yes, it's a fantastic game, I really hope they make another one. It's one of those games that when you think of a sequel you instantly have dozens of ideas of what can be done.

My sentiments exactly. I also think it's awesome that a game like this stands its ground and catches people's attention in an age where shooters seem to be the only thing many people play

I really liked the demo for this game even though my time with it was cut short. I need to play it once more when I get the time.

I really enjoyed the demo for Xcom and just got done beating Fire Emblem: Awakening for 3DS, which played really similar. They're just different genres (sci-fi vs fantasy). Hah. Great review too! I'll have to pick this one up the next time I want great sic-fi. Crysis 3 just isn't doing it for me.

Good game, core gameplay of original X-COM with lot of improvements and nice graphics. I'm also glad that devs kept turn based combat. However I thought that it lacked a bit in variety of weapons and craft types. They will possibly fill holes with DLC later...

Solid game and well deserved score!
