Review: XCOM: Enemy Unknown


Weve finally arrived
Oct 08
 
I dream of XCOM. I have fever dreams where I debate using my assault soldier’s Run and Gun ability to flank an alien or play it safe and stay behind cover. I wish I was kidding or being hyperbolic, but I’m not....

XCOM: Try not to get everyone killed


Aug 24

Interview: XCOM: Enemy Unknown, as hardcore as you like

There is a reason why strategy and adventure games faded away in the late '90s. It's the same reason why publishers are bringing franchises back and hamfisting them into more popular genres. It's about money. We used to call ...

But as I saw in our first hands-on preview with the game, change can be good.
