XCOM: Enemy Unknown Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac|Life has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition. The game includes the Slingshot and Elite Soldier Pack add-on content, as well as the Second Wave update. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for Windows PC and consoles, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a re-imagining of the classic X-COM: UFO Defense.

From the review:

While the managerial stuff is important (and surprisingly involving), it's the battles that are the real meat of the game, and XCOM excels at creating tense, high-stakes confrontations. Your enemies which range from stunted, "grey"-like creatures and mindless insectoid things to hulking brutes and mechanical horrors are largely concealed by a fog of war, making cautious probing of your surroundings a huge part of battle. Your agents are fragile, especially at first, so any miscalculation (like deciding to sprint across an open field and end a turn with no cover nearby, say) can result in quick, demoralizing deaths.
