XCOM Impressions - First Look

Back in the early 1990s, the now-defunct studio Microprose captured the imagination of nerds everywhere with a tactical PC strategy game called X-Com: UFO Defense.

Then it had you take the spoils of war (namely, alien technology) and use them to research powerful experimental weapons to bring into combat. Years later, 2K Marin, the studio responsible for BioShock 2, is now working on XCOM, a first-person shooter that will attempt to include elements of that original game but will also focus on fast-paced shooting action and character-driven stories.

Anyone a fan of the series. I reckon the old ones were gems.

The first few games were fantastic. Hopefully this new one will be good.

Very different formula to the previous games in the series.. Mind you the new Deus Ex is meant to be different and they said that worked well. It's nice to see old games return. I'm looking forward to the new Max Payne also, oh and the Wii version of Goldeneye (Hours of fun with split screen.)
