Product Description

Set in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, The Bureau tells the origin story of the clandestine XCOM organisation’s first encounter with a mysterious and devastating enemy. Originally established as America’s covert defense against the Soviet Union, The Bureau must adapt and overcome a threat unlike anything the world has faced before. As special agent William Carter, players will call the shots and pull the trigger, leading their squad of agents in the high-stakes secret war for humanity’s survival. Paramount to repelling the outside threat is The Bureau’s ability to cover-up the enemy’s existence in order to prevent worldwide panic.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
'The Bureau: XCOM declassified' is a tactical shooter somewhat in the style of Mass Effect that takes place in the U.S in 1962, a period filled with fear and paranoia, when the Cold War was getting hot, the space race was just beginning and the Communists were expected to attack at any moment - but when the attack did come it was not from where it was expected...

In the game you play William Carter, a hard faced agent with more than a little bit of Clint Eastwood attitude about him. As Carter you will lead its field missions against the alien menace.

At the beginning of the game you only have access to the technology of the time - things such as the Colt 1911 pistol, the M-14 rifle, shotgun, sniper rifles and fragmentation grenades.

You will collect better and more effective weaponry and technology as you complete missions, however unlike previous XCOM games, whilst your base has a research lab you will not research new technology yourself; Instead you will find new examples of alien tech and blueprints for new devices which will then become availible.

Whilst new weapons will be more powerful than previous ones, when it comes to mission time there really isnt much of a difference from one weapon to another - your laser rifle might fire red shots but it really doesnt sound or feel any more meaty than the basic M-14, a scatter laser is stronger than your shotgun but it sounds just like your shotgun, and the blaster-launcher (The most awesome of weapons in the original XCOM!) is just an unimpressive looking and sounding rocket launcher.

Missions are conducted from a third-person perspective. In every mission you take control of Agent Carter and can equip him as you see fit from the equipment availible to you at that time.

4.0 out of 5 stars X come here you... 28 May 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
a very enjoyable game in the mould of Mass effect 2 and 3. this is a tactical 3rd person shooter, not a run n gun type of game.
taking cover and flanking enemies and giving orders to your squad is essential for completing missions and staying alive.
if your team take too much damage, they will bleed out, fail to revive them in time wil result in Permadeath.

there are 4 classes of operatives; recon, Tech, Soldier, Support. each with their own sets of abilities to use in battle. the powers are great fun to use and without them would result in a quick death for all your squad and yourself, so using them smartly and giving orders in battle is essential. the action can get pretty hectic, but never to unmanageable degrees. even on Commander difficulty i managed to complete the final mission with only 1 ally after one died at the start of the final boss.

if you purchase the DLCs, the light plasma pistol is a life saver throught the game especially during missions 2-4 when you havnt unlocked many abilities, will get you out of tough situations on commander difficulty.

the settings are very nice, from forests, to farms, to towns and alien ships. no 2 levels will look or feel the same, i love the art design on the levels personally.

approximate playthrough time on hardest setting including DLC missions is around 20 hours. so its well worth the money. i just wish they had made more DLC.

if youre a fan of cover based tactical shooters, like ME3, Spec ops and are a fan of the Xcom series aswell, then this game is a must. dont get me wrong its not going to match ME. but its certainly one of the more enjoyable and well mechanically designed games out there. 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good departure from its roots. 14 April 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
first it was billed in the vain of bioshock (story fps) then changed to a tactical third person shooter.

think of this game as mass effect lite. tactics,powers,alien horde with harvesting humanity story its all there.

if you loved mass effect franchise then play this. they do say copying is the sincerest form of flattery.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting take on the XCOM series 18 Sep 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
A lot of people have panned The Bureau because of the change made in development from being a first-person shooter to being a third-person tactical shooter (similar to Mass Effect in more than one way). I am not sure that it was such a bad thing.

The Bureau has you playing as William Carter, an agent with a troubled history who is recruited to join the new secret task force that was being set up to combat a Soviet invasion, but now finds itself dealing with alien forces. You lead a squad of three through the various missions the game has to offer while also interacting with agents in the XCOM base and also dispatching other squad members to complete missions away from the fold while you handle the main ones.

The concept is pretty good, on the whole. A few details do let the game down. Most of the time in the base is spent running from point a to point b, and the investigations there often do not feel like they are worth the time you spent running around. However, there is a lot of backstory and watercooler chat going on if you pay attention. The dialogue system also has a problem in that if you choose to (or accidentally) skip a line, you might not have got all of the content even with subtitles on, leaving you wondering why something unusual has just happened. The checkpoint system is also unforgivable. You can fight for a good fifteen minutes to finally have a Muton dropped on you who takes your squad apart, and the last checkpoint was before the fifteen minute fight.

That said, there is a lot in the game's favour. The squad combat feels a little rushed, but is immersive.
