Admittedly, I hadn't played XCOM before. Not UFO Defense, nor Terror of the Deep. It was hardly my first rodeo in the genre, so I didn't have a large amount of difficulty in my time with it. The game created several memorable moments, some of the clearest in my head in fact, narrowly escaping an explosion wiping your squad out and the like. A terrific experience.

Great strategy game. This game makes sure that if you mess up its completely 100% your fault. The player assumes the control of a secret organization funded by the government to fight against the alien invaders. You are responsible for everything, from tactical operations to facility expansion. If you enjoy strategy games then consider trying to fight off the alien invasion.

Brilliant strategy game, unlike anything else Ive ever played. Cannot recommend this enough.

An excellent turn-based strategy game. It has a nice mix of base-building and enemy-raping. I particularly enjoy how your soldiers (units) stay with you throughout the entire campaign, growing stronger and building an emotional attachment with you (unless you send them into impromptu open heart surgery with Asshole Alien, MD).
I had this awesome French sniper named Mercier, and she was an absolute magician with a rifle. First you see one of those little bitch mind-controlling aliens ... NOW YOU DON'T. Well, I mean you can still see his body, BUT WHERE'D THE FUCKING HEAD GO??? It was an absolute tragedy when Mercier was blown into a red mist by a mind-controlled, roid-raging teammate. :( RIP Mercier. Maybe in another life...
Anyway, if you enjoy strategy games (or have an alien-gore-porn fetish) this game is definitely worth playing through. Good feelings of progress and accomplishment throughout. Pretty fair difficulty. Hot french snipers.
Excuse me now while I weep for my true love, Mercier...

Great strategy game, pretty faithful to the original series.

All my consoles have been boxed up for a week now because I'm moving. With no games and no internet I've been playing this on my iPad and its great. Really enjoying it, probably the best game I've played on iPad.
