The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Feature - The Digital Fix

There is an ominous feeling around games based on classic franchises that disappear, reappear, disappear then rise again from the ashes. One only needs to look at the infamous Duke Nukem Forever to see just how badly things can turn out. Furthermore the X-COM franchise itself is no stranger to the concept of failed spin-offs ranging from the mediocre flight sim X-COM Interceptor to the abysmal third person shooter X-COM Enforcer that took exactly zero concepts from the original turn based strategy. So the messily titled incoming third-person shooter The Bureau: XCOM Declassified (with its own equally messy backstory of cancellations and redesigns) is clearly treading dangerous ground with the vehement voices of old-school gamers standing on the picket lines waiting to tear it apart (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)
