IGN: E3 2010: XCOM Preview and Debut Trailer

FBI special agent William Carter pulls up, stopping his car in the picturesque, tree-lined suburban street. His surroundings are the very vision of archetypal 1950s America – modern houses, well-kept lawns and white picket fences. But something isn't right. The scene seems frozen, eerily quiet. There's no activity in the streets. No kids playing or selling lemonade. No guys working on their cars in their driveway. Something terrible lurks beneath this silence.

This game could be amazing...or amazingly crappy.

The original X-COM:UFO Defense (Enemy Unknown) is still one of the greatest games of all time. Hopefully this new XCom will spark interest in the old classic (a game that every true gamer should try).

I was about to say that 2K should lay off making games about 1930's for a bit but after seeing the trailer I ate my words. It's going to be great and setting looks very fitting.

X-Com UFO Defense for those of us that have played it, is simply one of the greatest games ever made. It was light years ahead of it's time with the depth it presented.

And, now they are turning the turn based squad strategy game into a first person shooter game. Hopefully they pull it off, and this game rocks, because X-Com deserves the best.

P.S. When I saw the screen saying, "And if all else fails", I immediately thought, go for blaster bombs and mind control.

Just not Xcom. More like Xfiles. Early Xfiles.

Looks like Xfiles meets Ghostbusters meets Fallout 3

First thing that popped in my head, That's Mental.

Where were the sectacoids and floaters?

I just hope the god they don't have Chrysalis dudes in this game, those guys were a pain in my arse.

M rated ghostbusters thats what it reminds me of looks very good gonna keep a eye on this 1. Was this the game Ken levine was working on or is it another game?

Stealth20k3029d ago

It doesnt need to be called xcom at all. Any random title would do

Just another generic shooter crapping over an rpg franchise
