2012 GOTY?

Everything about this game is perfect. You grow attached to YOUR characters, the game gives you solid objectives that are clear and comparable, but you always feel accomplished. The combat system does not get old, and the game continuously offers you fresh mechanics to keep things interesting, and despite the minimal story, you still get pulled in. It doesn't feel like you are playing a video game, it feels like you are fighting for Earth.

Not Player Friendly

This game was not as good of a action game that I had thought it would be. The technique used in this game was horrible and should only be for a child that can not move around and aim. The whole game has you pick a spot to go or aim then press a button and the game plays itself. Very disappointed but glad I have gamefly so I didn't waste $50.00.

Turn-Based Strategy, Huzzah!

If you ever played a classic turn-based strategy game and hoped there would come a modern masterpiece of the same, look no no further. This is your jam.

Build bases underground and perform research. Send satellites to cover the nations. Launch fighter jets to knock down UFO's. Build and train highly-customized teams of soldiers to go on ground missions and fight aliens.

The AI is pretty smart, too.
