Digital Trends - E3 2010 was a big year for XCOM fans. After years of stagnation for the beloved property, 2K announced that it would finally return, albeit not in the way most expected. The real-time strategy classic from 1994 had been revamped, and the turn-based gameplay replaced and reimagined as a first-person shooter. In 2012, the classic series would be reborn as XCOM: Enemy Unknown, but in 2010, fans saw a shooter. Some strategy was layered on top in 2011, but the game disappeared from sight after that, only to re-emerge two years later with a new look, a new perspective, and a new focus.
