If you played and liked the original XCOM back in the day, you will likely love this game.
It's an amazing upgrade, not a sequel, so you don't HAVE to know the original to like it.
The turn based action requires a sound strategy, rather than reflexes, to succeed. If you try to just run headfirst into battle, you won't survive, so sit back and figure out your best move.
This game isn't for everyone, but for those into this genre of game, you'll love it.

I usually play PC games for strategy games as i'm often left disappointed by console strategy games. However i was left very much surprised at the platform this game took. Dialogue was relatively good, story line was good, game play was very immersible. Found myself spending multiple hours at a time playing. Second wave and advanced potions make game play more customizable which i found unique in console strategy games.
Characters can be customized with armor, weapons and slot for either grenades, stun gun, etc.
Best turn-based highly interactive console based strategy game i've played thus far (other than Operation Darkness).
