Enemy Within

For those who dont know. Enemy Within is the exact same game. No, really, it is. Enemy Within came after Enemy Unknown. Enemy Within has everything this title has but more classes, enemies, and a bit more story. THIS IS A RTS. Anyone expecting more will be disappointed. However, for everyone who knows what an RTS is, its great.

Classes very. Each class has its own skill trees. Snipers, Assault, Support, Heavies. Upgrades to armor, weapons, even psi powers. Same goes for airborne tactics and your HQ. Setup satellites to track and engage the aliens. Use your jets to make em crash. Engage them on the ground. Salvage their tech to upgrade things further turning jets into Hybrids. Upgrade uplinks for more sat coverage, workshops for your ground units gear. Labs to further research and unlock more upgrades. It gets repetitive but at a certain point things start picking up pace and the progression of story versus combat seems to mingle well.
Sound FX are choppy. Voice casting is kinda ok but nothing spectacular.
Gameplay is kinda like playing chess or Warhammer. Your almost always outnumbered so pick and choose engagement wisely. You'll find that you'll start treating your troops with a certain love and affection cause of all the time and effort you put into them.
Lastly, this title is pretty solid. Got drawn out due to slow story progression. It picks up however and when it does it flows pretty smooth. More airborne fights become apparent, goals for victory become clear, and the psi element later on in the game keeps you busy. That being said rent it, enjoy it, pass the good word on. Thanks for your time and game on players.
