XCOM is a great addition to the strategy genre, complete with an engaging campaign full of tension and challenges. The characters grow in satisfying ways, but the tactical game doesn't ever quite give players enough room to make the most of their abilities.

Fortunately, it’s focus is on the ground operations and strategy employed to combat the aliens is a far more interesting premise. It’s also a concept that is incredibly well executed and, despite some minor technical setbacks, makes for a game that everyone should play and experience. Even if you have to turn the difficulty down to easy in order to do so.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a real sleeper hit. Save for repetitive level design, a basic online component, and some questionable voice acting, the game is magnificent. It may take longer than most to appreciate, but it never fails to deliver.
