XCOM: Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organisation called XCOM. As the XCOM commander, you will defend against a terrifying global alien invasion by managing resources, advancing technologies, and overseeing combat strategies and individual unit tactics.
The original X-COM is widely regarded as one of the best games ever made and has now been re-imagined by the strategy experts at Firaxis Games. XCOM: Enemy Unknown will expand on that legacy with an entirely new invasion story, enemies and technologies to fight aliens and defend Earth. You will control the fate of the human race through researching alien technologies, creating and managing a fully operational base, planning combat missions and controlling soldier movement in battle.

XCOM Enemy Unknown is a great strategy game, and one of the best in this generation. Human vs aliens, intelligent, rewarding and challenging gameplay. You have to really use your brain to win the war.
XCOM Enemy Unknown is a good modern remake of a classic game, sold at a fantastic price and with very prompt delivery.
XCOM Enemy Unknown is a great game!
XCOM Enemy Unknown is a brilliant take on the old games, this game has endless hours of alien killing fun! If you like strategy games then this is for you! It's a good turn based chess-like game but with modern graphics, menus and animation as well as a good story and brilliant cut scenes. Interrogate aliens, steal their technology and use it against them, mind control aliens, stealth snipers. This game has it all and I got it all for a low price!
XCOM Enemy Unknown is pretty good. It's much harder than I had expected (on normal difficulty) but this was a good thing, as sometimes I find strategy games to be a little boring when you can complete them without much of a challenge due to the slow pace nature of the games. There are some annoying points and a few bugs but they don't really take anything away from the overall game play. The one thing I quickly learnt with this game was that you can not rush through the levels, you just end up losing men. I would recommend this to anyone who likes strategy games and I love the run and cover based game play.
XCOM Enemy Unknown is an excellent game so far. I recommend it!
XCOM Enemy Unknown is even more addicting than the original 1994's UFO of my tender youth. There's more possibilities, nice game-play and good graphics. It's one of the best games I've ever played!
Excellent game, fun and addictive. Maybe just a little short (or maybe I just played it a lot).
XCOM Enemy Unkown is great in so many ways! You get to control a squad of six, which is what the game is sold for, but you also get to manage your base with a tight budget, which forces you to really ponder what to spend your valuable assets on.
I like turn based games so I can wander off. XCOM Enemy Unknown has a good amount of randomness. The good strategy and tactics are worth a punt.
I originally bought a copy of XCOM Enemy Unknown for my son who is 12, and he absolutely loved it. His Dad is now a fan and we bought this copy for his best friend! The game is fairly straightforward with aliens and zombies. It's a little gory in places but hasn't given him or his son nightmares!
This new "remake" has nothing to do with XCOM. The graphics are nice, fire looks like fire and the light in the game creates a very deep atmosphere. I also liked the rain effect in the game... it looked very nice. Strangely I had to lower the graphics settings because the game crashed after one minute of gameplay. Funny part is if you aim for enemies and 6 of your units have an accuracy of 99% and still everyone of them miss. This happened a lot to me and I am pretty sure that there is a bug in the game. Why do they need to show the covered places explicitly? I don't need a symbol which shows me that the enemy can't hit me. I know that if I stand behind a wall and there is no line of sight... he can't see me. The whole technologytree is as lame as the history of my life. You are forced to research some stuff. And the tree is pretty short and lame. The AI is in my opinion the biggest fail since the beginning of fails. The enemies don't do anything, just standing on their spawn point and waiting until you find them. If you see them they get initiative and take cover. This way you can never sneak on them ... they always see you.
A re-imagining of a classic that was tough, this one is a bit friendlier and Xcom Enemy Unknown was Giant Bomb's game of the year 2012. A must have in your collection!
Have you ever wondered what it would be really like if aliens invaded? Well now you have the chance to command your soldier to do battle with an alien foe. Be warned though, you're out-gunned and out manned! This game will require you to use all your skills to destroy the alien scum, fighting right across the globe, oh and if you get stuck there's always the rocket launcher! This game is definitely worth the money, I have had so much fun playing it and recommend it to anyone!
XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based strategy game that's easy to learn but hard to master, where every new fight is as thrilling as the previous. I really enjoyed this game and think it's the third best game of 2012!
Amongst all the fps generic shooters, XCOM Enemy Unknown is a breath of fresh air. This is a brilliant revival of a genre of games that was long overdue for attention. Before you know it, the tutorial is over and you're immersed into the game world and hours will have passed by. It's a recommended buy.
I'm so happy I bought this game! It's not like all the other boring games such as Call of Duty, Xcom has awesome graphics and a lot of new game-play that I have never seen before! I would recommend this game to anyone.
it is indisputably the best of its genre made in at least a decade. I leave the title of Best Game Ever with the original, but playing this one has done this old X-COM fan's heart good, and I believe it will make a whole lot of new fans, too.
This is a great reboot of the XCOM (UFO) Enemy Unknown game from many years ago. It's been updated with modern graphics, streamlined base management and an intuitive control system makes for an atmospheric and engrossing game.
Good ideas, but the game doesn't let you choose between hardcore or easy.
