Summary

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a great game that is a refreshing change of pace from the constant barrage of first-person-shooters and third-person action games that seem to have plagued the industry for the last few years.

We like

  • Gameplay is fun and satisfying, great replay value
  • Very challenging and unpredictable, never allowing you to become too comfortable
  • All decisions made, whether in or out of battle, carry a heavy weight

We dislike

  • Consistent frame-rate drops can hurt the experience
  • Lackluster story
