logo for XCOM: Enemy Unknown

A turn-based tactical RPG. It is a "reimagined" remake of the 1994 cult classic strategy game UFO: Enemy Unknown (also known as X-COM: UFO Defense) and a reboot of MicroProse's 1990s X-COM series.

Set in the near future during an alien invasion of Earth, it puts you in control of an elite multinational paramilitary organization called XCOM and tasked with defending the Earth. You command troops in the field in a series of turn-based tactical missions; between missions, you direct the research and development of new technologies from recovered alien technology and captured prisoners, expand XCOM's base of operations, manage XCOM's finances, and monitor and respond to alien activity.

    • Hi karot16 - there were only a limited amount of XCOM keys. If you haven't got one, you were unfortunately too late, and no further keys will be given out.

[+] In my deadliest mission yet in this 'Long War', I managed to trigger EVERY alien on the map in my first turn. My squad, which consisted of 4 rookies, a squaddie(scout class), and a Corporal, was ambushed by 11 aliens all at once. I managed to end the mission with only the cpl. and a rookie alive. The rookie was promoted to squaddie and was made into another scout, to replace his fallen comrade. This is gonna be one hell of a playthrough.

    • I'm only on cinematic XD But with me having to rollback to a couple of patches since I don't have EW, I think all the glitches I have to deal with makes up for the difficulty. I thought about ironman, but I didn't enable it; I have been playing like it's enabled though (I never reload saves no matter how bad things go)

    Zero chance of me ever using such an unreliable service. Didn't even get an acknowledgment!

    Terrible service/platform. Don't risk your money! Just use the far superior Steam.

    Decided to name a solider after myself - Instantly died.

    • Always the way, I waited most of the game to get a male solider from the UK to name after myself and they were ridiculously under powered for my point in the game

[+] Didn't receive the voucher nor a copy of the game; I've been wanting Enemy Within ever since it was announced then released, but I'd hit rock bottom around the time it came out and I'm financially limited on what I can do...

    It sucks because I'm OCD about having a complete game, and XCOM really got me through some hard times before Enemy Within, but now I've lost the interest and sense of wonder without Enemy Within D;

    My whole body is losing muscle and I'm in chronic severe pain; that voucher would allow me to get Enemy Within and be able to get my mind off of my physical ailments.

    I apologize for whining about my life, but I'm in love with this franchise, Steam, and GMG.
