Gamebanshee Reviews XCOM: Enemy Unknown
Review - posted by Crooked Bee on Tue 23 October 2012, 19:31:16Tags: Eric Schwarz; Firaxis Games; XCOM Enemy Unknown
Eric "sea" Schwarz has penned a lengthy review of XCOM Enemy Unknown for Gamebanshee, and it's kinda negative. I will quote the conclusion for you:
There are two ways you can look at XCOM Enemy Unknown - either as a brand-new game made in the spirit of the original, intending to evoke the feel but not the particulars, or, as a pale imitation of a classic PC game that has suffered from the many compromises made to make the game work for consoles and the triple-A industry. Both perspectives are valid, and I agree with both. If you are looking for a solid strategy game with fun tactical combat, but one that doesn't require months to appreciate, then X-COM Enemy Unknown is the game for you. But, if you've grown up with the original and have just got done playing the latest Crusader Kings expansion or Jagged Alliance 2 mod, you might want to ignore those UFOs on the horizon.
(Gamebanshee reviews it so it's an RPG.)
