Best Console TB Game yet!,
This review is from: XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I too was skeptical on this game. Yet after playing about 15 hours since launch. This game is the real deal. The options continue to open up the further you get into the game. I just beat the Alien base, (Which was no easy task) and found out there is even more managing to be done afterwards. There are so many ways to customize your base and even squad once you get into the meat of the game. I could say this Game maybe the best Turnbased game on Console since the Original on the Playstation 1. And this is coming from a guy who loves Disgaea and Ogre Battle type games.
I just want to reiterate that the game opens up more once you progress. I see reviews that are harsh for this game and the criticisms they speak of are fixed later on in the game. You do get more options. No you do not get more bases , but you do get satellites which are the equivalents of bases. I can go on but I don't want to spoil anything.
