It is possible that the writer of such articles know that for many of their readers, X-Com is a recent example and the go-to comparison that people will make.

I think it's sloppy - they should educate on it's past as well as say "it's like this recent game, too" - but I also think their intentions are purer than their knowledge is lacking.

I'm just speculating there, though. Could be WAY off.

EDIT - and, having just read that review, I think it's clear he was trying to reference the entire X-Com game series, not just the most recent entry.
