XCOM: Enemy Within - Review @ IncGamers

by Couchpotato, 2013-11-30 04:12:59

IncGamers has posted  a new review for XCOM: Enemy Within. They also award the game with a final score of 8/10.

XCOM: Enemy Within is XCOM: Enemy Unknown, expanded. It’s the same basic game, but with more options, more threats, and nothing really done wrong. This doesn’t break the game or ruin it; it simply adds more of it and changes the way you play it. It’s a little sad that things like the XCOM base assault are setpieces rather than the result of aliens finding your base, and the strategic map still feels like you’re just waiting for the next event rather than fighting a war against a cunning foe, but these are minor quibbles that I’d expect to be addressed in a sequel rather than an expansion. The bottom line is that Enemy Within makes XCOM better, and if you’ve been waiting for an excuse to dive back in, then this is it.
