Firaxis Games developed the title for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. 2K Games published the title and released it on Oct. 9. This is one of two XCOM games that 2K Games has in the works. The game received a very favorable review score of 88%.

About XCOM: Enemy Unknown

There are two main elements of this game’s gameplay. There is the tried-and-tried mission-based combat. This will be where soldiers are in a hot zone and they’ll have to kill all the aliens on the map to secure victory. The other element is more managerial in theory, where there’s a resource management aspect within the geo-scape of the game. These two elements weave wonderfully to bring unique difficulty and nuances on multiple levels.

Snippet from the Review

[adsense250itp]Reviewer Kalvin Martinez said of XCOM: Enemy Unknown:

“XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a fun, addicting and surprisingly good game. Even if someone has never played a tactical game before, chances are they have played a game that has similar elements to the genre. As a comparison, XCOM is like a real-time strategy game, where the units are more valuable and have more weight because they are given an identity and are limited. XCOM also has some similarities to the strategy RPG genre, where each unit has a number of turns, can be customized, gain experience and level up, and has special moves and unit differentiation.”
