Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

The year is 1962. JFK is President and the Cold War has the nation gripped by fear – but a far more powerful and insidious enemy than communism is threatening America. Known only to a select few, a top-secret government unit called The Bureau begins investigating and concealing a series of mysterious attacks by an otherworldly enemy. As special agent William Carter, call the shots, pull the trigger and lead your squad in a gripping third-person tactical shooter set within a high-stakes, covert war to protect humanity. The Bureau’s mission is clear – survive, adapt and overcome the enemy threat to protect the citizens from the truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not XCOM, but still great 3rd Person Shooter. 13 May 2014
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
First I need to say that this game has been massively misrepresented as an XCOM game. It’s set in the XCOM universe but that’s the end of it.

Which is where the brunt of the negative reviews come from.

That aside.

This game is brilliant.

I will say give it enough time to get into the main story though, the first level doesn’t do the game justice. But it’s a 40 minute run to get past this “tutorial/prologue”.

If you’ve ever placed Spec Ops: the line or Mass Effect 2 or 3, you will definitely enjoy this game.

It’s a linear game with some RPG elements. But ultimately you’ll be commanding your squad to use there various skills and powers whilst utilising your own set of unique abilities on the battlefield to get the upper hand and overwhelm your foe.

The game has 4 side classes depending on your desired play style for your AI. They all come in handy but you’ll make short of most enemies on any difficulty if you play the game smart. Running in and trying to kill everything yourself is a sure fire way to end up bleeding out on the floor. Does feel like a second wind if you get a kill option should have been applied here but your allies should get you up without to much of an issue.

Storyline is pretty much run of the mill with some “surprise events” happening along the way. You won’t feel too attached to any of your allies or NPC’s in the game. But this doesn’t take from the fun of killing a load of aliens.

But for a short 10 hour stint this game is fun the DLC is cheap enough to warrant buying as well and this adds another 2-3 hours to the game but again is more of complete these 10 challenge missions which can be played separately to the main game.

I bought this game for £10 and feel I got more than my moneys worth, I wouldn’t at all have felt cheated if id paid £40.

Give it a go, if you don’t like it, well you’ve only wasted £10.

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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars X-Com's new direction. 2 Sept. 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I'm a big fan of the X-Com series, I was eager to play The Bureau. Then I started playing......., imagine a very weak Mass Effect, poor group dynamic, only four support (team mate) classes -you're stuck with the same class every time- and mediocre team mate abilities. Commanding your team (you and two team mates) is pretty good, using the command wheel, however, the fact that on higher difficulty settings you have to issue commands with an alarming frequency, it detracts from the overall enjoyment of the game, almost as much time is spent ordering your two goons as there is shooting. The game is pretty linear and there is no research at all, the fact that most of the guns are new designs, or plays on original designs is a positive and a negative. As a long time fan of the franchise some of the best bits is seeing (shooting) some of the old school bad guys (some, again, slightly reworked). Poor shooter that I think I completed only out of nostalgia for the originals. Poor form on 2k's behalf considering how long this has been in production and how many revamps this title has had, the first person shooter version must have been truly awful.

A really fun game, a bit of a departure from the traditional XCOM experience, but is an enjoyable game if you give it a chance and overlook the slightly 'Gears of War' play style.
