I downloaded XCOM last night from stream and started playing the Demo, haven’t yet shelled out for the full version as yet. So far I’ve enjoyed the game, it’s a departure from your standard type game in that its turn based. As I’m a strategic/ Tactical thinker the game feels comfortable. It’s almost like a game of chess. Now I haven’t delved to deep into the game as yet but I could see it taking up a bit of one’s time due to the pace of the game. Tobold has a write up on the game if one is interested.
I’ll run through the entire demo before I make any decision to purchase the game but so far I’m enjoying the change of pace.
