Xenonauts - Impression @ Rock,Paper, Shotgun

by Couchpotato, 2014-07-12 05:19:55

Rock,Paper, Shotgun played the recently released kickstarter game Xenonauts, and decided to share their impression of the game.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to UFO: Enemy Unknown, which means that it’s also a spiritual successor to many of the most tense and glorious hours of my teenage years. Following a successful Kickstarter and a period in Early Access, the game has been available for almost a month now. With its loyal approach to the original design, Xenonauts doesn’t step on XCOM’s toes, but I wondered if it could succesfully muscle in on the original game’s territory. Several days of playing later, I have the answer. And some anecdotes about intra-squad romance.
