XCOM: Enemy Unknown Reviewed

MacWorld 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:

XCOM proves incredibly fun. Turn-based combat means you’ll have to protect each squad member, outfitting them as best as your current research, funding, and training allow for. When a squad member is killed in combat—and this will happen—it’s up to you to clear the level of the assorted humanoid, grey, insect-like, hulking, and zombie aliens, and get the survivors out alive. The game’s graphics, sound and music delivering a rare level of tension that makes every decision feel critical.

XCOM’s multiplayer gameplay allows you to create mixed squads of humans and aliens prior to going against an opponent. The multiplayer gameplay mode supports both LAN modes and online gameplay via GameRanger, so you might have to dig around for someone to play against, although the experience still proves fun.
