I was positively surprised by this game. Coming from just PC gaming I thought that Playstation games are limited to just action. E.g. racing game, just racing. Shooting games just shooting. This game combines the action (shooting) with strategic planing to reach the final goal. Nicely done. I recommend it to strategic players which like games like Civilication. It is from the same makers.

I love tactical strategy games and this game is a great one! I have not played the original, but I can easily say that that's no detriment to how much you'll enjoy it. Easy to learn, hard to master. This is the kind of game that's hard to get off your mind even when you're not playing!

This game was really fun and took me 20+ hours to beat. It's extremely deep and fun, but at the same time quite punishing if you aren't very methodical with your play. I recommend it to everyone who has the time to invest in it.

Great game with lots of replayability. Constant changes to enemies, missions and always hard to predict what will happen. Graphics not top of the line but they are still really well done. Love how you are always confronted with the choices and consequences of your actions (i.e given a choice to save one country or another during alien invasion missions) Drawbacks is the lack of time to be able to research or explore routes of new technologies and techniques. Pretty much as soon as game starts you have to know what route you want to take. rookies can't aim to save their lives.

This game brings back all my nostalgia for the original XCOM which I blame for dropping me a full letter grade for a semester in high school. Super fun.

Having just finished the game, I leave people with these thoughts.

This game is tactical strategy at its best, well as good as you will get in AAA gaming. The in-depth tinkering with your base involves getting funding, researching tech, building new weapons/armour, defending your air space, interrogating aliens… the list goes on.

The level of depth is quite impressive.

Personally the real fun comes in when you customize your squad. Kitting them out, giving them names, leveling them up and running them through missions. You start to take a certain pride in your max level sniper clearing the field with ease.

The overall experience is quite satisfying.

There are of course a few rubs.

The game has a surprising amount of bugs. In particular when it came time to kit out my soldiers. Their avatars would be incorrect or just plain out invisible.

The combat can also get tedious sometimes. After I've killed off the 15th Muton on a forest map, the last thing I want to do is hunt down the 16th in the bloody forest map. The urban maps are by far superior.

Finally the ending was kind of… well anticlimactic. I sniped the last boss twice, and he died. That was it. This was on normal, I intend to crank up the difficulty for my next run.
These gripes are minimal though. All together, I enjoyed it.

It’s a solid four star game. If you have any interest in strategy games, give it a try.
