Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

If you're an old fan of the X-COM series, of course, forget about finding your old install disks or putting up with twenty-year-old graphics—playing Xenonauts is the best way to relive those glory days with deeper systems. If you're new to X-COM, Xenonauts will let you explore the series' classic roots with added depth and details.

Xenonauts is an unlikely success, a challenging clone of a beloved classic with enough tweaks to entice fans and newcomers alike. It might look rather cheap at first glance, but underneath that rough exterior lies something special. Breaking the game down and looking at all of its pieces in isolation would do the game a disservice, because every facet helps focus the true luster of the whole.

Xenonauts makes a noble effort to replicate the brilliant and tense style of old-school X-COM’s multi-layered tactics and strategy. It even breathes new life into the ground and air battles with some original ideas, albeit with a bland art style. However, Xenonauts has major issues with conveying crucial information, and fails - or rather, makes little effort - to smooth over its interface or otherwise make itself palatable for anyone who isn’t already intimately familiar with the 1994 original.
