X-COM: UFO Defense

  • X-COM: UFO DefenseBuy on Amazon - Copy URL
  • Developed by Mythos Games (1994) on PlayStation, PC, Amiga
  • Strategy > Turn-Based
  • The story of X-COM begins in 1998. The initial plot centers around increased reports of UFO sightings. Tales of abduction and terrorism by the unknown aliens become widespread. The nations of the world come to perceive this as a threat and attempt to form their own forces to deal with this, such as Japan's Kiryu-Kai; these forces fail miserably, the Kiryu-Kai not intercepting a single UFO in its five months of operation. On December 11, 1998, representatives from some of the most powerful nations in the world meet in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss the issue. From this meeting was born the Extraterrestrial Combat Unit—X-COM, which the player takes control of during the course of the game.

X-COM: UFO Defense (aka UFO: Enemy Unknown) Review written Monday, September 29th, 2014 at 10:49 am.


Once you get passed the initial learning curve, XCom shows why it is the greatest PC game of all time. You start with a base, a small radar, and a few planes. When you detect a UFO, you try to shoot it down and then send in soldiers to scout the crash site in a turn-based, top-down view. When clearing the area of aliens (which is intense and challenging), you bring back alien artifacts and hire scientists to research alien stuff so you can use it against them. I played this game for a long time before I realized there was a way to win. You can eventually use mind control to turn the aliens against each other or guided missiles to blast a new entry point in the side of the UFO. The depth of gameplay options always brings me back.

One of the most complex and challenging Strategy/Tactics games ever - and also one of the best.

Even after all these years this old classic hasn't been beaten. The game is an excellent combination of tactical turn-based combat and base micro management. The game's atmosphere is also excellent.
