First the good: Seriously this is the most enjoyable game I have ever played. I couldn't put it down! But to be fair, I really love turn based strategy games and I really loved the original X-Com. This is everything the old one was with great graphics and more a more realistic experience.
Couple bad points and the only reason it's a 9 for me and not a 10. The ending is buggy. I had to save it bit by bit in order to finish the game. It would freeze up randomly quite often and the final movie scene played without any sound. Also it seemed a little short (although this could be just because I poured so much time into it).
I haven't tried the multi-player part yet but I am glad they included it to expand the playing experience. I will still go back and play this again but I do look forward to downloadable expansions for this one! Bravo 2K games for bringing such a wonderful game to the PS3. I was hooked from start to finish! Please patch a fix for the ending though!

This game has two sides to it. On one end it is sooo addicting that you just cant put it down once you stop. The other end, it is sooooo freaking challenging that it makes you want to rip your hair out after a while.
