Here's a lengthy XCOM preview. Really makes it sound better than their trailer made it out to be, I was beginning to be really worried about this title a while. Sure it's not the same Xcom: UFO Defense or Terror From the Deep, but I'm very excited for this title now.
XCOM is looking remarkable and was a genuine surprise at this year's E3. The game looks to have come on leaps and bounds since its showing at E3 last year and 2K Marin seems to have gone to great lengths to preserve the strategical heart of XCOM, despite the fact that it's all draped in FPS clothing. The promise of both story-driven and non-narrative themed missions, as well as the tactical view and the depth of strategical choices should hopefully please the die-hard fans while enticing newcomers, making XCOM quite clearly one to watch for 2012.
