Fighting little green men in The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - GamesFIX

GamesFIX writes: We've needed a good Area 51 game since … well, Area 51. You remember that shoddy first-person shooter from the PlayStation 2 era, don't you? No? It's probably for the best: it wasn't very good anyway, and you'll need to have saved your alien-busting credentials for something a little more refined, just like 2K Games' The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

The fascinating title has been through its fair share of criticism: initially revealed as a first-person shooter in 2011, the game has since shifted perspective to third-person, and now emphasises squad-based combat in a '60s-era game world brimming with alien life.

Still, despite familiarising itself with strategic mechanics more inline with the XCOM series' history, its shooter-centric nature keeps it firmly embedded in the "new IP" category. Unlike 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, The Bureau feels less like a futuristic shooter and more like a modern day retelling of the Roswell incident. (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)
