XCOM Enemy Within Review

Posted on December 12, 2013 AT 11:51am

Remember last year when we were all singing praises for XCOM Enemy Unknown — well the game is back again this year — bigger and better and now known as XCOM Enemy Within. Some gaming publishers like to drop the ‘Game of the Year’ edition which generally includes all DLC and some bonus content sprinkled into the mix but the fine folks at Firaxis Games have stripped XCOM down to the core and rebuilt it, modified it and enhanced it to make the re-release an almost entirely new game experience.

XCOM Enemy Unknown/Within is a top-down turn-based squad combat reboot of the X-COM franchise which was popular years ago on the PC. Aliens are invading our world and it’s up to you to command an arsenal of soldiers and military strategy to fight them back and take the war back onto their turf! XCOM Enemy Within has added a ton of new content into the game — and not as DLC or add-ons but morphed directly into the story/campaign. Two new additions that stand out are the ‘Gene Mods‘ which allow you to construct a Genetics Lab and physically enhance soldiers, augmenting their strengths/attributes and the other is the introduction of the EXALT – a new human enemy threat hell-bent on undermining your every move.

XCOM Enemy Within is a stand-alone game and does not require the original (XCOM Enemy Unknown) game to play — we recommend just purchasing the ‘upgraded’ version of the game XCOM Enemy Within and putting it in your own stocking for this holiday season.
