5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised... 10 Sep 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I noticed this game quite a while ago and when i saw it going for a fiver i thought i may as well grab it. All i can say is that im glad i did.

Having only played through the first 2 (am in the middle of the third) i can only really review those but that should be enough for you to make your mind up about whether this is for you.

The first (and so far my fav.)title you get in this trilogy is aftermath which basically tells the story of us taking back control of the planet after the dust had settled from a huge, alien attack. The real meat of the story is told through the myriad of research options that are made available to you as the game progresses and after certain prerequesits are met. I personally found this to be one of the games most attractive features, making the game more immersive than you'd think. The story is simple yet intriguing enough to make you want to see where it goes - one of the hallmarks of a truly great game in my opinion.

The gameplay is spread around two areas, tactical and strategic. The strategic gameplay consists of simple base management, research, manufacture and squad deployment. It is in this part of the game where you plan your overall strategy.

The second area of gameplay is the tactical, squad combat side. There are aspects of this part that i really enjoyed and others that i was not so enamoured with. For instance, the camera could be difficult to use at times and some of the environments could be frustratingly difficult to maneuver in. Having said that, the graphics are fairly pleasant and the combat varied due to the vast amount of gear you can deploy which takes me on to my favourite part of the game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like a fine wine it gets better with age 5 Aug 2008
By Clever Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First there was UFO: Aftermath, which was a limited recreation of the old X-Com games. I never finished it because frustrating and repetitive gameplay had me tearing my hair out by the endgame.

Then came UFO: Aftershock, which was also a limited recreation of the old X-Com games but a bit closer this time. I never finished it because frustrating and repetitive gameplay had me tearing my hair out by the endgame. I did get ALMOST to the end though and it wasn't nearly as annoying as the first game.

Finally, so far, came UFO: Afterlight, an almost complete recreation of the old X-Com games with extra bits. The fairly pedestrian graphics of the original two game have been replaced with a more cartoony feel and there's more to do on the strategic map. I finished it and came very close to enjoying myself for most of the game. Like the other two games it's highly repetitive but it's also tactically evolved and with a more interesting storyline.

If you're a completeness freak then this is the collection for you but if you haven't sampled the UFO: franchise then I'd skip the first two and look for the cheapest copy of Afterlight that you can find.

All the games had a pretty active modding community so be sure to check out the fansites.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFO Trilogy 4 Aug 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Arrived on time.
New product, excellent condition.
Loaded without problems first time.

Excellent game content.
All 3 games. Start with the first and then proceed through to the last one. Or you can play all 3 at the same time.

A good sequel to try to replace the much missed UFO X COM game that is no longer produced. Oh how we miss you X COM...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Strategy Game. 8 July 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love strategy games. I usually prefer games where the tactics and strategy are from reality usually Human vs Human in war or counter-terror.

However, when a GOOD strategy comes along that`s science fiction but allows you to Xenophobically kill Aliens in a realistic way then that`s the icing on the cake. They`re not Human, they`re stinking aliens- Where`s the guilt? LOL.

Anyway, Aftermath is the first of the Trilogy and probably the simplist of the 3, but that is no bad thing. Evil aliens have made a surprise attack on innocent introverted Earth, wiping out most of its population almost instantly. Only a few survivors remain. We gang up and become the remaining force using what we can find to fight back.

You are the overall appointed commander of the fight back, staring out with basic, but decent weapons and a few aircraft. You get sightings of UFOs, but until you build a radar station and slightly better pursuit aircraft, your response is limited, but you do get to go to stricken areas where Aliens are causing trouble.

Personally, I really like the Alien UFO intercept scenes which are filmed scenes that change to reveal how many and what type of uFO you are taking on. It`s nice seeing your fighters break formation to attack and the UFO response. After a while these scenes become predictable and it would be nice if they could`ve added more variety to the dogfights and some pilot speech. But I do like the way that what you see is fuzzy until your radar improves then all clears up.

When you shoot down a UFO you then pack your men into a shuttle plane and send them off to the crash site. The Crew management is very detailed, allowing you to set weapons and training skills from Sniper to Doctor to Psychic abilties.
