Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The X-Com series dates back to the early 90's -- I still remember the hours I spent on X-COM: UFO Defense... In fact, the game is considered by many to be one of the greatest (if not the greatest) strategy games ever developed. With the randomly generated maps -- concept of fog of war and line of sight -- getting shot at from nowhere -- permanent death -- and that fantastically good music that so fit the mood of the game, it's no wonder many still play it, almost 20 years after it was released.

There's been many efforts to remake/redo the game, with how far computers have come since then, but no big game companies decided to take it on, until now, and I do believe I'm in good company when I say that Firaxis really have a winner on their hands...

First the box -- this is the special edition version, so you get the artwork book and a nice insignia thing. I appreciated the artwork book, especially when they showed some of the original designs and the updated ones -- it's really amazing to see how far things have come from the early 90s, in terms of the capabilities of computers. Poster was nice too - but that's all just fluff to me. If you're downloading it, be prepared to wait: there's 2 DVDs in the box, so that's around 13-14 GBs of data. Well worth it.

There's already tons of reviews and videos out there about the gameplay, so I'll stick with some lesser known ones, for some pros and cons:

PROS:
- I really like the addition of new mission types -- the original only had terror, crashed UFOs, landed UFOs, and alien bases.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loss of Control - Good for some, bad for others October 16, 2012
By Jason
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Special Edition
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been going back and forth on this game. It's a hard game to review. Like most other reviewers on here, I played and loved the original X-com. I was pretty hesitant about the remake but eventually gave it a shot. If you're new to the genre or can let go of some of your nostalgia, you'll probably enjoy it. It's a good turn-based strategy which is rare these days.

The one word that kept coming to my mind though was "control" which I'll get to momentarily.

**- What's great -**

- It's a solid turn-based strategy game with a base/resource management layer that combines for a lot of fun.
- Fairly quick missions that make shorter burst of play feel worthwhile.
- Streamlined and easy to pick up if you're new the genre.
- You'll grow attached to your high ranked troops, relishing their victories and sitting in terror when they walk into an alien ambush.
- Tough decisions. Especially when playing Classic/Ironman (which I recommend as soon as you get a solid feel for the game). Which abduction site will you choose... will you risk sacrificing a soldier for a live alien capture, what will you research/build... ect. Every decision can have a dramatic impact on the rest of your game.

**- What's improved from the original -**

- Faster, easier game play. No more spending time in a poor inventory management screen trying to make sure your troops have enough ammo and equipment.
- Graphics... obviously.
- Mission types. So far I've enjoyed the variety of the new mission types such as bomb disposal and escort missions.
- Ironman mode. Which auto-saves for you and does not ever let you load a previous save, meaning if you lose your best sniper, you've lost him for good. No re-do's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings, but mostly a good game. October 14, 2012
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Special Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The good: They've brought back the xcom series. A fresh look at the turn based combat genre, and I enjoyed it very much. IT definitely brought back memories of the old xcom games I installed via floppy disk lol. If you're a fan, consider this a must-have. The nostalgia alone is worth it plus the game itself is pretty enjoyable.

The bad: Too short - the game was very, very short if you go straight through the research tree. If you stall, you can fight crashed ships endlessly, but that gets boring... leading me to my next point: Repetition. Seriously now, updating this series was a chance to lose the "play the same 4 maps no matter what country you're fighting in" thing. Don't get me wrong - i loved the old games, but bringing the series into a modern gamer's market - you HAVE to step it up a little. Also - no base defense, no kneeling, nearly every weapon "explodes into fragments" unless you stun the alien (which is ridiculously hard in the early part of the games, and salvaging weapons are completely unnecessary in the latter parts. The weapons tree is less useful than in the original games, and the list goes on and on with *small* things that could have, and should have been done better to expect this series to compete in the market (and all of these things would still let the game stay true to the spirit of the original ones)

My biggest gripe: only 1 base/ 1 squad response. Come on - no more establishing bases around the planet for multiple ops, faster response, and more/better ways to up the variability of the game? No more multiple squads running multiple planes, to get multiple targets/ crash sites?
