[Game] XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM Enemy Unknown


I was quite excited for this one, but it turned out a little bit too similar to the original. It offers little in terms of narrative, base management is just like it used to be, and the overhauled tactical game-play, while fun, gets old through repetitive missions eventually.

The original was a fantastic game way ahead of its time, so I still had fun with this one, but I expected more innovation from a game carrying XCOM’s name.

Interesting sci-fi premise
Feels a bit too much like the original
Good tactical turn-based game-play
Underwhelming narrative
Managing your base and researching technology is fun
The random missions get extremely repetitive pretty quickly
