WARNING this game will take over you life!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: XCOM Enemy Unknown (PS3) (Video Game)I have been gaming for a long time (20+ years) and it's rare to find a game that takes over your world, whan i'm at home all I want to do is play it and when i'm away all i'm doing is couting down the time until I play it again. Yes folks XCOM Enemy Unknown really is that good!
Its a brutal game that never lets you get too confident, just when you think your winning and your squad is invincible you will go on a mission that rips the rug out from undernaeth your feet and leaves your invincible squad decimated (this happens alot and im only on normal diffuculty). One of the best parts of the game is how attached to your squad you become, when you lose one of your favourites it leaves you feeling emtpy as well as severly limits your options in battle.
On a minor negative the game has crashed a few times :( hopefully this is just a bug that the developer can iron out in the near future, but saying that when it does happen it reminds you that 12hrs have gone by and you really should eat/sleep.
In summery this is a beast of a game and anyone who likes a challenge should give it a go.
Im off to play XCOM Bye!

This guy is spot on. Got the game and agree completely

I also concur, this game eats up the hours of a day and sucks you in, a very good reboot of a classic series that did exactly the same for me years ago.
