XCOM: Enemy Unknown reviews get all the scores here

Monday, 8th October 2012 13:10 GMT By Dave Cook

XCOM: Enemy Unknown reviews have begun. The paranormal strategy game from Firaxis harks back to the classic days of turn-based strategic play, but with many modern twists that don’t pander to today’s standards. In other words, it’s awesome and hardcore. Get all the scores below.

    @3

    Sorry, this may sound dim, but is this a retail game?

    Or a full priced release?

    Hey Dave, I think you got one score wrong, Gram.Pl gave it 9.5/10 – not 8/10.

    Apparently they really got it right, I’m looking forward to playing this game.
    A buyer’s guide would be nice, so we can just lean back and wait for you to find us the best offers out there :)

    Thx!

    Control/UI wise especially.
