5 out of 5 eggsGreat game, at the price I was looking for!

Pros: -The game itself is great!
-I snagged it for under $14
-Steam actually accepted my code

Cons: None. I see the game is once again $39.99. If I had not ran across the game on sale, I would have eventually paid the full price for it.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty addicted to this game

Pros: Amazing game-play
Modability
Nice graphics and style
Overall its a nice mix of tactical strategy and base building requiring you to make difficult choices often.

Cons: Has many bugs. Not enough to effect playability but enough to wear I've been put into a jam.

Other Thoughts: Also if you like this game I hear the recent expansion adds a whole lot to the game. I plan to pick up the expansion myself at a later date.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible Game

Pros: I can't thin of any pro's. This game is terrible. Chewing on a rock would be a better idea than playing this game.

Cons: Imagine an FPS installed on a checkerboard and you get XCOM. The game dynamics aren't dynamic at all.

Other Thoughts: I bought this game for 4.99 through a NewEgg Promo. Total waste of money. I would even let NewEgg give me 4.99 back to play it.

In other thoughts, NewEgg sent the product code and transaction was as smooth as butter, this is nothing bad on NewEggs part. It's just a bad game.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome game!

Pros: Fun! Great graphics! So many options to choose from. Stable game. It hasnt crashed on me and Im using win7 pro x64 bit OS. I love everything about this game and Im so happy they brought it back. You dont need a super computer to play this game. The suspense playing this game is what really makes it fun for me. Fast saves and reloads.

Cons: Id like to see 10 times the options just more of everything. Maybe an expansion pack?

Other Thoughts: This was the first game released for the Playstation 1. I spent so many hours playing it back then, I remember brushed the cigerette ashes off my stomach becuase i was so involved playing the game i forgot to smoke hehe
Im a big fan.
Thanks again for bringing it back you did a great job!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I missed a few of the features from the original, but overall this is as much fun as I expected.

Cons: A few small bugs, but nothing critical.

2 out of 5 eggsGame Crash!

Pros: Love the game during the first play through but now the second play through (on harder difficulty) I noticed some bugs (discussed in cons)

A solid Strategy RPG. RPG not only on your units (solders) but also able to upgrade base, armor, weapons, and aircraft with in game money earned by how well you do in missions and how you organize you economy.

Enough challenges to make you re-thing and most likely restart some missions.

Cons: The multiplayer does not have a coop or comp stomp option.

Also in my second play through I selected my starting country to be Africa so I could get a 30% increase in funds from countries and my game crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game but it still crashes when I select Africa as my starting country. So far Britain and US starting countries work fine.

Other Thoughts: Needs more updates. After I am done with my second play through I don't see myself playing this ever again. They need more options in multiplayer and new campaign additions.

I have already picked up the DLCs for this game.

5 out of 5 eggsgotta love saving the world again even if it's been 20 years!!!!

Pros: new graphics of course pretty cheap and one of my favorite old games back from the dead.

Cons: still fun but just not as fun as the original where you could build multiple bases have a gazillion dollars if you wanted to spend the time. the architecture of the game was just more open to do whatever you wanted when you wanted.

Other Thoughts: you can have multiple redundant soldiers i have like 60 or so but you can only take 5 per mission but honestly the way they did it is pretty cool you dont need any more. you can bring all snipers or all heavys up to you. only one base blows i think would be ok with 3-4 because if you screw up on construction and need to remove you are hosed in this game. i used to play the original as a teenager in 90's and would always get a craving to play a game every few years so i hope this is not perfect but maybe it will sell decent and they will commit more money to a series. so if you are a fan and want to see this game continue support xcom and buy it come on it only like 40 bucks folks i played took my time for about a month enjoying it and still have not finished it yet. amazing how much less time kids take away from game time lol. SUPPORT XCOM buy it. now one of you developers make a new master of orion and i will never be heard from again lol
