Excellent

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.

Very technical hardcore gamer/role playing but not for me . have to follow orders and move one person at a time with four different players then just a bit later 2 die off then you have to press exact buttons no freedom to run around as far as i know stopped playing after that. good graphics. try it you might like it but i did not.

Game of the Year

I'm really excited to see that everyone else is excited about this game too. It's so refreshing to have such a satisfying strategic/tactical game. Like another reviewer said, every time you complete a mission, you feel proud, like you lived up to the challenge and got your team to work together...I haven't really felt that satisfied since solving puzzles in Portal. It's a little shocking at first to experience some of the great concepts in this game. It's unpredictable, and characters die, and countries abandon your project...forever! What a concept, permanent death in a game! If you try to exit and reload a game before a mission, it's surprising to see that it's a totally new, but similar map. That chaotic element really adds to the excitement of it all. Great, great game...
