XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the first strategy game that’s managed to hold my attention … ever? I’m not saying that it’s the Top Dog of All Strategy Games Ever. Just that its accessibility is far-reaching without compromising all the management and nuance of a great strategy title. In short: I recommend it to anyone who digs strategy games, has $25 to blow, and has a decent PC rig. I played this with an Xbox 360 controller on the Windows partition of my iMac and it ran great, played great.
