2.0 out of 5 stars Would have been great if they'd finished it, 5 Mar 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: UFO: Aftershock (PC DVD) (Video Game)
This has the potential to be a great strategy game. If you've played and enjoyed the XCOM games, this offers a very similar mix of base bulding, squad management and tactical combat elements. It is a mammoth game, offering weeks of gameplay. I can only give it a qualified recommendation, however as it was obviously rushed out by the publishers before the developers had finished it. Even with the most recent patch it is far too prone to crashes. There are also design flaws, the worst of which can mean that players can find themselves unable to complete the game without doing anything obviously wrong. Prospective buyers are strongly advised to read postings on the user forums at [...] before purchase.
There aren't many other squad-level strategy games around and, when it works, this is a good addition to the genre. If you are looking for a strategy game this is worth considering, but only if you have a high spec. machine, considerable patience, and are prepared to put in the effort not only to play through the game but also to work around various flaws.
