2K Games Explains Why The Bureau XCOM: Declassified Didn't Still Well for Most Gamers

After less than stellar launch reviews for The Bureau- VGS sits down with 2K Games to talk about the product and why it's been so hit or miss for most gamers! (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360)

Update Sound Cloud Link included:

Because it wasn't XCOM :/

The firaxis version was far more in line with what the game should be (and it sold well).

Happened with Syndicate too, when some genius decided to turn it into an FPS, then the game bombed and they wonder why.

The fanbases of these games want games true to the originals, not turn them into god damn FPS's/TPS's all the time.

Well said. I couldn't agree more.

I liked the game. Well, what I played of it. I quit a few hours in due to graphic issues. A patch would be oh so lovely.

Did it bomb??? I loved Enemy Unknown so much i wished for The bereau to bomb so hard lol

I am not native English speaker and that sentence doesn't make sense for me. "Didn't Still Well" seems like mistake, or am I mistaken, by my lack of knowledge?
Mythicninja  +   814d ago
You are right, it makes no sense. It might make more sense if it said "didn't sit well"
WeAreLegion  +   814d ago
I don't understand the title.

I played this game for a little bit and quickly got tired of it. No sooner would I start a battle and my teammates are yelling at me to help them.

I swear it was the most frustrating AI I have ever experienced.

I spent more time moving them around then actually shooting the aliens.

Game is fine. The problem was that you have Saints Row IV and GTA V book-ending this game. There are some issues with the game mechanics, but there is nothing "wrong" with it.
The game had to be different in order to differentiate itself from the one Firaxis did.
Section8  +   814d ago
I doubt it has to do with GTA. It's a month later.
Section8  +   814d ago
Because Splinter Cell and Saints Row released on the same day. I saw this coming months ago.
SolidGear3  +   814d ago
Should've stuck to the original FPS format and not try to appease both sides of the fence. Enemy Unknown for original X-COM fans and this for FPS / Action fans.
