The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review | GodisaGeek

GodisaGeek: "The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is a good shooter occasionally elevated beyond that by its subject matter. Unfortunately, every time it has a really good idea, someone else has already done it. The action, squad system and dialogue wheel are almost point-by-point imitations of those seen in Mass Effect 3, and the perma-death element just doesn’t have the impact that it has in Enemy Unknown. While the mechanics are solid and the firefights are always great fun and just on the right side of challenging (at least when played on Squaddie – or Normal – difficulty), 2K Marin just don’t take enough risks to hit the big time here." (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360) 8/10
