The bottom line? If you are an XCOM fan buy this game. If you are a fan of 1960's era UFOs and the X-Files, buy this game. If you're a fan of third person shooters and have nothing to play until GTA V in three weeks, buy this game. But if you're looking for a deep experience that will give you 30-40 hours of tactical goodness, this isn't for you. Most will enjoy a playthrough, and then move on to the next holiday release.
