XCOM: Enemy Unknown is not just the best strategy game this year, it’s the best strategy game this generation and possibly the best ever strategy game on consoles.

Game Informer Magazine
Both of XCOM’s layers present life-or-death conundrums to which there is no right answer. No matter what you pick, something or someone is going to suffer for it. This kind of tension and terror rarely occurs within mainstream gaming, and almost never with this level of skill in the execution. Don’t let the “turn-based strategy” moniker scare you off; XCOM is a singular achievement that every gamer deserves to experience.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is incredibly addictive and once you start playing you'll find it hard to stop.

Même si le genre du combat au tour par tour se pose comme un OVNI vidéoludique, XCOM est sans conteste l'un des titres les plus enthousiasmants de cette année. Firaxis a en effet réussi son pari en modernisant son titre avec de nombreux ajustement de gameplay pour fluidifier l'ensemble, à grands coups d'effets de caméra pendant les combats et avec une bonne dose d'humour geek pendant la gestion de votre base. On pourra regretter une ambiance graphique passe partout , avec en particulier des cinématiques un peu cheap et des décors très génériques, mais le jeu est si généreux et captivant qu'on lui pardonnera sans ciller cette légère faiblesse. XCOM réussit à maintenir le joueur sous pression sans pour autant le frustrer avec une difficulté injustement calibrée. Plus qu'un tour de force, c'est un coup de maître qui mérite toute votre attention. Faites le premier pas, vous ne le regretterez pas, avec XCOM c'est une relation durable que vous aller pouvoir entretenir sur le long terme.

Don't be too concerned by the minor drawbacks, however. XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a wonderful and worthy strategy game with a layer of campy charm that makes the stone-faced seriousness of the game's characters all the more endearing. It's also remarkably accessible, thanks to a great interface that feels comfortable whether you're using a keyboard and mouse or have a controller in your hand. Enemy Unknown packs dense amounts of dramatic tension into each turn. And so it's time to eliminate the alien threat, commander. Select a location, build your base…and save humanity.

Retour gagnant pour XCOM qui parvient à se moderniser sans pour autant trahir l'esprit de son mythique modèle. L'aspect gestion évite l'écueil de la complexité artificielle et les combats ont pour leur part conservé l'éclat de ceux d'UFO : Enemy Unknown tout en se dynamisant sensiblement. Le mélange de ces deux éléments s'avère délicieusement plaisant. Souhaitons donc un beau succès à ce titre qui mérite franchement d'être essayé, puis adopté.

The Video Game Critic
X-COM: Enemy Unknown is a slow-burn title that will test your patience up front but pays off in the long run.

IGN
XCOM is a great addition to the strategy genre, complete with an engaging campaign full of tension and challenges. The characters grow in satisfying ways, but the tactical game doesn't ever quite give players enough room to make the most of their abilities.

As mentioned, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is nowhere as good as the original, but then again, beating the original is a very tall order. The game still manages to be a very good and intense turn-based strategy game and it’s a safe recommendation for both newbies and veterans of the genre. Pick up your rifles and jump to the Skyranger people, we have a planet to save!
