As the surpreme X-Com commander it is the players resposibility to stop an alien invasion of planet Earth by recovering and researching the alien's technology in order to turn the enemy's own weapons against them. Players build bases all across the globe, command soldiers on UFO raids and various other missions, and assign scientists and engineers to reverse engineer the captured alien technology. The graphics are as good as can be expected from such an old game. The game is not for those looking to get right into shooting aliens as the player spends a great deal of time with the logistics of repelling the alien invasion.
When it comes to turn-based strategy games X-Com is about as good as it gets but if you're looking for an easy, relaxing game this isn't it; the game is entertianing but it's intense.
