5.0 out of 5 stars XCOM:EU Full Review with Tips October 13, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
XCOM:EU is a great game. I played the original and many other strategy games in the past. This is a full, long review. It may have minor spoilers. I will cover as much as possible. I give Objective reviews whenever I can, not Subjective. I will state my personal opinions when I can. This review may be more subjective for me as I really like this game.Bear in mind XCOM:EU has immense replayability as long as you like turn-based tactical battles. The strategy base part of the game is awesome as well.

Graphics
Unreal engine, but they spent a lot of time on the graphics and they look terrific! Only a few minor glitches here or there. The Deco DLC is awesome, not yet available as of this writing (it was a preorder bonus).

Sound
The sound is good, with voices for the soldiers. The music is not as eerie as in the original game, but it is still very good. When aliens are being fought the music picks up for the action. Very nice sound.

Early thoughts
The game is pretty solid, I only had one freeze up for the PS3. The base is very cool, and tactical is as good as ever. Bear in mind, the official Strategy Guide is NOT going to give tactical training! You need to become a good player by playing and figuring out the strategies, that is why it is called a STRATEGY Game. I will give a few tips where I can. I beat this game in two days, took roughly 24 hours, and I missed a lot of sleep.

Difficulty - Easy/Normal or Classic/Impossible?
If you are new to this type of game, and especially to XCOM in general, I suggest at least Easy mode. On Easy mode there will be less threat to deal with and more special missions to help you. Also, the alien timetable will be a little longer, so you will have an extra monther or so before fighting the toughest monsters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very unique game, lots of fun... October 9, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I remember hearing about the original Game a long while ago in the 90's. Never had the chance to play the original. I bought a copy of Xcom: Enemy Unknown and it was exactly what I was looking for, a good strategy-turn based game experience. You get a lot of stuff here, yet you need to get familiar with the controls, they can be a little tricky to get used to. The graphics are OK, this game is based in the "unreal engine" so the graphics are alright, not bad, not great they are just fine. I really like Firaxis Games, specially those where Sid Mayer is involved and that is the case in this one. I am really amazed by the game mechanics, it plays really really well, and it will offer you a good challenge. There was a mission where I return to my base with only one soldier alive! but heck! it was SO exciting!

The story is just amazing and very very long. I honestly believe it is impossible to finish the whole game in one sitting. a warning though, put attention and read your messages well while you are at your command center, you can miss part of the story. I'm not an avid fan of buying game guides but the one for this game (it is short and cheap you can get it here at Amazon) can help you keep your sanity. The game will challenge you with six "Phases" or campaigns and it keeps you hooked-on; this can easily take days to complete. The challenge increases as you keep advancing and you need to balance your team strengths, the amount of research you invest in, how you are spending your money and putting attention when there are project priorities to be done at your engineering and research labs, these are all important things, but you can't do them all at the same time! you need to prioritize and this is what makes the game so fascinating by opening so many different game options.

5.0 out of 5 stars A remake that lives up to its classic roots October 10, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
++++++ BACKGROUND ++++++
X-Com: Enemy Unknown is a remake of the classic game X-Com: UFO Defense (UFO: Enemy Unknown outside North America) released in 1994 and is considered one of the top ten games of all time for the computer.

There are currently two re-makes currently undergoing development to be published by 2K. The first, known as XCOM, will be produced by Irrational games and depicts the XCOM universe as a First Person Shooter in the 1950's although recent announcements suggest it has been moved to the 1960's and will be squad based combat.

The second, X-Com: Enemy Unknown, was developed by Firaxis games and consists of the game I am currently reviewing. Firaxis are veteran developers of the genre of strategy games due to development of games such as Alpha Centauri and Civilization under the guidance of Sid Meier, one of the companies co-founders and creators of such classic games as Sid Meier's PIRATES!, Civilization, and Railroad Tycoon.

++++++ GAMEPLAY & COMBAT ++++++
X-Com: Enemy Unknown is a return to the world of single player strategy games that are few and far in-between in this world of first person multi-player shooters. Gameplay is divided in-between two areas; management and battle skirmishes.

In management, you build up your bases, upgrade facilities, preform research and development of weapons all the while monitoring your finances which always feel like a heavy burden you are carrying upon your shoulder you just cannot escape.

The skirmishes are where the meat and bones of the game lie and where you may spend a majority of your time. Simple choices you make in a turn-based fashion have an overall effect on the outcome of the battle. If you slip and make a poor choice the computer will make you feel that error.
