Product Description

Product Description

UFO - Extraterrestrials

Manufacturer's Description

The year is now 2025 and on the newly colonized planet Esperanza our devices have not just been approached by alien machines but attacked. Control a squad of soldiers, light and heavy support combat vehicles, robots and air units located on the planet Esperanza that had been colonized by the spaceship Magalhaes in the year 2023.

This squad was brought together by the Esperanza government to face a threat that comes from deep space. Advert the alien impact on Esperanza, and head to the planet Earth and free it from the Aliens Forces that are now controlling it.

Combine global strategy with small squad based tactical combat against an alien invasion. Repelling the alien invasion requires taking full advantage of the terrain and his environments.

What makes this game so bad is that it is an "update" of one of the greatest strategic games of all time - "UFO - Enemy Unknown". And it's a travesty...

The split is very similar to the original "UFO" game - so close as to perhaps only just avoid legal repercussions. At a strategic level you manage bases and research whilst at a tactical level you move your squad around a map hunting and killing aliens.

Unlike the UFO After Trilogy (Aftermath, Aftershock, Afterlight) this goes back to the original's turn based tactical game.

But - compared to the original game - and remember this version was made FOURTEEN years later - it's an inferior product.

The critical importance of terrain has been lost, your soldiers can no longer kneel or lie down, and most frustratingly you can't hire new soldiers. You can have absolute fortunes of money but can't resist the alien invader because all your soldiers are in sick bay. Base management is a completely cut down version of the original too.

I admit I gave up on this one pretty quickly. There is a possibility that once these limitations are accepted there could be a semi decent game here.

But why accept that ? There's no excuse for putting out a game that in most significant respects plays look a very poor cousin to a fourteen year old classic. If you liked "UFO Enemy Unknown", "UFO" the TV series, or just wanted a playable squad strategy game buy "UFO Trilogy" - now very reasonably priced. Those games are flawed but in spirit and execution they are worthy sequels to the original X-Com games. This looks and plays like an inferior knock off.
