By Zen Man
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I will admit that I was extremely skeptical of this game. Being a fan of the original Xcom, I was upset about all the changes and simplifications they made. I was so skeptical I didn't preorder and opted instead to wait for metacritic reviews. Well I got the game yesterday, and the verdict is... AMAZING!!!

This game will challenge you MORE than the original Xcom. It does hinder you in some ways but it results in a more realistic experience. In the old Xcom for example I would send in rookies to the front line while my "A team" soldiers stayed behind and took cheap shots once the aliens where in sight. Distance wasnt an obstacle in the old Xcom, in the new one you would need a sniper to get those shots.

In the old one, I would give soldiers auto cannons with explosives ammo and blow up entire walls to see if there were aliens there. In the new one, I can still do that, but then I wouldn't have any more rockets when I really needed them.

I also thought this game wouldn't be scary because of the cartoon look that it was given. I was dead WRONG! Every battle is tense, every time I see the words "alien activity", I pray that I didn't make a wrong move or that I would be flanked. Every decision you make can turn the tide of battle and luck can be on your side sometimes and sometimes it will work against you. In Xcom you are never safe!

Enemy AI is good. I am playing on classic and ironman mode and the enemy is wise to my flank maneuvers. They will often try to outflank you as well so you need to think on your feet.

This game is not perfect however. The graphics are ok (which doesn't bother me), there are a few cutscene hiccups and sometimes you can take shots when the enemy is walking behind small covers even though it looks like there is no shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars XCOM:EU X360 Full Review with Tips October 20, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
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've only had a few freeze ups. 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 AN EXCELLENT REBOOT OF A CLASSIC GAME October 10, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been years since I've played the original XCOM on my 386 computer, but I still vividly remember the hours of fun I had filing my team out of our landing craft to do battle with the alien hordes.

While my memory of the specifics of the classic XCOM are a bit hazy, I can tell you that all the major elements that I remember are fully intact in XCOM: Enemy Unknown (XEU). You get to do loads of research between missions, you can scramble jets to intercept UFOs and most of all, you get to send your team all over the world in turn-based combat with the aliens in your patient quest for new technology.

Despite the similarities to the original, it is immediately apparent that a lot of thought and polish went into the development of this new game. . .

--Your teammates can go up in rank as they gain more experience. Best of all, more experience means more abilities, but even this is not linear as you are often stuck with a choice of abilities, both almost equally tempting.

--Prepare to die a lot, but the Soldier Memorial adds a nice touch and encourages you to be more careful with your strategy to prevent further losses.

--Being able to view the "anthill" of your base and excavate new areas gives you a great deal of satisfaction between missions.

--There are short load screens, but they are integrated so well that you hardly even notice them (in particular the spacecraft cinematic when you fly to or from an engagement).

--Having people at headquarters that actually talk to you reminds me a bit of the advisors in the Civilization games.

--But perhaps some of my favorite things about XEU, are the global threat alerts and council meetings.
