Seems like a fair bit of critically acclaimed titles are finally making their long-awaited hop over to the Mac gaming universe. Last week we had Rockstar's take on a modern noir story in Max Payne 3, and this week we have Firaxis bringing back the alien invasion with XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
For those of you new to the franchise, XCOM tasks you with being the commander of large paramilitary group built for the purposes of defending our world against an extraterrestrial threat. Your resources are not unlimited, and funding can be cut from your financial backers, making for games filled with very interesting and difficult choices on how to best use those resources.
I am glad to see XCOM: Enemy Unknown finally out and optimized for the Mac gaming community, and coincidentally nearly a week after XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS devices launched. I see what you did there Firaxis!
