I highly recommend this game if you're into turn based strategy games because every aspect of gameplay integrates into each other very well. You will be considering your decisions very carefully and gives the fighting a sense of tension, excitement, and euphoria when things go exactly as you planned.
I highly recommend playing this on another platform since the PS3 version crashed on me on average once per play session.
The PC version is probably better since mouse + keyboard works better in a game like this.
I have never played an XCOM game in my life until I picked up this gem. Wow, what a rare and refreshing treat this game was. If I had the money at the time I would have paid to keep it. The story and game play kept me wanting to come back for more. And the controls, never did I think an RTS would work on a console but 2K proved me wrong. This game comes highly recommended.
