Excellent

Highly Addictive

I thought I would check this out as it looked different from blowing stuff up and just shooting people. Needless to say I was amazed. I lost track of time every time I picked u the controller. I did not get a 10 because of bugs but highly addictive and the entire time I was stressed out making every decision and even restarting games because of things that happened early in the game that affected me much later on. It was refreshing to have to think and plan instead of shooting someone and being rewarded for time spent and not skill.

Good

great concept, poor play

I really liked the concept and story but just too much dialogue, limitations of players abilities and lack of action game play in be able to enjoy or finish the game.

Not a bad turn based strategy

If you like turn based strategy games then you will definitely enjoy this game. Its from the same people who did the civilization series. This game offers you to kill aliens that invade earth so its up to you to destroy them and build a crazy team. Theres upgrades galore (if you can afford them) game may become repetitive after some time but if you enjoy these games then you will play all the way through.

Graphics are not next gen at all. They used unreal engine...where??? Unreal engine games look way too good and this game fails to make it shine. Graphics are a bit outdated if you asked me. But maybe that was intentional considering games like these are kind of big. There was no optional install which really sucked because the game would lag after an hour of play and no its not my ps3 because i have the slim and play cod/borderlands/ff series for hours on end without a hiccup

Sound/music not bad, decent, kinda cheesy voice acting

One problem as to why i sent it back without beating it: The game froze sometimes in the middle of a session and this needs to be patched up asap. Those who play these games know exactly how frustrating it is when the game freezes.
