Took me four try's just to get a good start on this game! Some tips: up grade fire power and shielding fast, and be careful on missions don't go to fast and look everywhere! EXTREMLY repetitive in soundtrack and scenery! I did like that they slowly mix in the different lvls of aliens. focus on getting engineer's and setting up satellite uplinks and to start off use steam power. always go to the most paniced country when there are abductions. and don't lose on any missions. if it looks like all your soldiers are going to die abort mission! try and keep your highest raked soldiers they have the best traits.

this is by far one of the best games i have ever played xcom is a amazing turn based strategy game i fell in love with its great graphics great gameplay great story didnt play the multiplayer but i hear thats good this game has tech research tech trees for your men as well as customizing everything about your men hair,skin tone,armor decals, stuff like that this game even on easy for my first playthrough was kinda tough because the aliens get tough depending on how good you are like the faster you get some techs the aliens will get more powerful units faster also so the game has some challenge overall this game is epic and amazing i would recommend anyone at least rent it and try it out
