MTV- The Bureau: XCOM Declassified' Preview

MTV:Hey, remember when 2K Marin announced a new XCOM game way back in 2010 and everyone got super excited about defending Earth against a new alien threat via a three-quater tactical view? Remember how when they said it would be a first person shooter instead and all those excited fans got really upset that it had been "dumbed down" for the masses of COD kiddies? What we saw during that 2010 E3 was a mixed bag for some and for most accounts 2K Marin has been mum about any details -- so much so that fans got tossed a quick but really fantastic (seriously it was our GOTY for 2012) franchise entry as "XCOM: Enemy Unknown" to keep some of the hardcore fans satiated. Well, a lot can change in three years and what may have been another mediocre shooter clone got altered into a tactical third person shooter blending elements from "XCOM: EU" and "Mass Effect" set during the Cold War. (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)
