Very Good

Not What I Expected

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.

There hasn't been a decent turn based strategy game released in quite some time and Xcom does a great job of representing that genre. The difficulty settings are a bit deceptive as even the Easy mode will present a pretty moderate challenge to players that are not use to the game style.

While the game is considerably fun, there is a lot of problems (at least some that I encountered). The game lags terribly during scenes with a lot of atmosphere like rain, smoke, fog, so forth. I also found myself constantly having to reset my console due to loading glitches that would cause the game to freeze. The textures are a bit lifeless, the story, while interesting, lacks a truly gripping depth that I look for in my games. And finally, maps repeat constantly in long games. I feel that the game could have spent a bit more time in development to take advantage of the abilities the PS3 has to offer.

Despite the flaws, I encourage players to give the game a shot. I had fun with it and give the game a 7/10.
