Summary

A classic game of excellence. (die sectoid scum,die)

The Good

Hell, this thing was the best strategy-tactical game out there. Researching aliens, using their technology, deploying soilders, hiring scientist, building bases and the never-forgettable GeoScape. All this was BIG back then and a milestone that inspired many games now.

The Bad

The sound wasn't too impressive. Other than that, this game rocks.

The Bottom Line

The strategy genre at its best. An instant classic.
