Summary

A wonderfully inovative, addictive and immersive experience.

The Good

This game has a mix of several elements, base and resouce management, and combat. In this game this is delightfully put together for a totally immersive experience. You can shoot down Alien ships, research and build alien technologies, build new weapons, equip your soldiers, and manage your base and your personnel inside of it. This game offers such a long and worthwhile experience it is highly recommended. This game has everything a strategy/action/combat fan would want. It is a classic all should own.

The Bad

Even on the easiest difficulty the game is rather hard. Funding given by governments is sometimes not enough.

The Bottom Line

An awesome experience by all counts, it may be a 6 year old game, but it delivers that classic gameplay that never gets old.
