Preview: The Bureau: XCOM Declassified | Stevivor

Previewer Steve Wright writes, "I warmed up for a hands-on session of 2K Marin’s The Bureau: XCOM Declassified with a quick bout of Firaxis’ recent XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Very quickly, I remembered why I love the strategy game… and even faster, I remembered how awful I am at it. Up against the most basic of aliens, I grimaced as all four of my team were killed. A strategic commander, I ain’t.

"Thankfully, The Bureau is right up my alley: it lets me play in the XCOM world I love via a genre that I’m better at. This means I could theoretically get through the game without slaughtering every single person I know; despite my ineptitude, I remain one of those guys who renames every XCOM soldier that he recruits." (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)
