Summary

A fascinating game

The Good

This game is simply cool - you can equip your ship with soldiers, weapons and mini-tanks. After you shot down an UFO with your interceptors, you send your ship there and move your soldiers around on the terrain, which is real fun beacause the game is very tactical. Another great thing is researching alien technologies, the developers thought up really nice ideas for this game. Like the PSI forces your soldiers can get through training.

The Bad

Well, it's quite hard, even on the lowest skill grade. The graphics are not too exciting, but ok. And the interface is a bit complicating.

The Bottom Line

If you like UFO's and aliens and tactical games then you'll better get your hands on it! It's the best one of the three classical X-COM's.
