Edge- The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review

Edge:Goodness, what a retcon. The Bureau’s been tweaked and retrofitted so many times now that the poor thing suffered a downgrade from reboot to prequel. What once styled itself as the shiny new face of alien invasion now finds itself a background story to last year’s successful, unexpected resurrection of the turn-based strategy genre, which we’re pretty sure presented itself as first contact at the time. Still, within the ignominious diminishment of prestige lies an opportunity. With XCOM’s long-term fans sated thanks to Enemy Unknown’s tactical charms, The Bureau can freely be its own game. (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360) 6/10
