The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Review | GAMINGtruth

Greg Bargas of GAMINGtruth takes on this third-person shooter XCOM experience in this review.

"There’s no doubt that XCOM: The Bureau Declassified had huge potential — the game raised brows years ago when it was showcased at E3. However, with a broken cover system and shortcomings in the form of true representation of the XCOM experience as a whole, it doesn’t make the cut.

The amount of detail and scale of the game is magnificent. With that being said, it’s hard not to feel that the game’s cover system and other features were built around this already created landscape. There is an unfortunate feeling of empty exploration and linearity to be had in such a beautiful setting.

The storyline will hold you over for approximately nine hours, delivering rather lengthy missions. However, you will find the story really straining to iron itself out." (PC, PS3, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, Xbox 360) 5.4/10
