XCOM Preview - GamerGaia

Chances are you never played the X-COM series. Some of you may have never even heard of the series until recently. And that, my friends, is what I call an injustice.
X-COM is a series dealing in the popular alien invasion sci-fi topic, and is known for delivering players a great deal of unique gameplay options and pushing the boundaries of what a tactical game could accomplish in the 90’s.

I'm sorry but I can't help but hate this game. I have been waiting patiently for 10 years for a new Xcom game and, as a huge fan of the series, I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I was when they announced it was going to be yet another FPS game.

They can try and make it true to the xcom franchise by including a world map and research etc but at the end of the day they have turned one of the best turn based strategy games ever into more pew pew pew.

I apologise again for the hate but I just had to get that out there. There's a good chance that this might be a decent game but it will NEVER be an Xcom in the eyes of the fans.

I do agree that past classics like X-COM shouldn't be messed with. If publishers really want to revive an IP like this, but do something completely different with it, then it needs to become more of a spin-off, rather than a successor.

I'd love to see a proper old school X-COM reboot with turn based isometric combat, but I also really like the look and sound of this new re-imagining too.

I want both!

I think the new Xcom game itself could be good in its own right. The premise looks really intriguing and the FPS game-play looked pretty awesome. If only they would've called it something else.

But yeah I'd give anything to play a proper reboot of the old games.

Why are you making another X-Com only to turn it into a Bioshock clone?

Why are you tainting the name of a once-great franchise even further than what's already been done?
