Phantom Doctrine / JTGA - Review

JTGA: From the moment you boot up, Phantom Doctrine immerses you in its moody, downtrodden world. The subtle, melancholic soundtrack sets a heavy tone; this isn’t a bombastic, shoot ‘em up adventure. This is a world where you see the wheel’s turn; where patience and careful planning is rewarded, and rash decision making is swiftly punished.

The turn based nature of traversal and combat cements a deliberate pace, and is a defining aspect of gameplay. You spend most of your time navigating various dingy locations, retrieving intel, bagging targets, and generally indulging your ultimate spy fantasies.

The story is too old to be commented.

Xcom is probably my favorite game series of all time. Xcom 1, Xcom TFTD, Xcom 1 lol, Xcom 2

I play all these games at least once a year all the way through and i have been dying for games close to it. Going home early from work to play this.

You won't be disappointed. I don't think Phantom Doctrine was made with the same kind of budget the XCOM games had access to; you can tell that parts of the game (like facial animation) are a tad rough around the edges. But overall, it's a fantastic all round effort that is well worth a look.
