How is this game for the Xbox 360

Let me start off by saying, yes, I understand that console gaming isn't the most popular thing in the world right now, but my laptop can barely run games that came out in 2002 and I really can't afford a new PC at the moment. I also really don't have the space to get a PC that's good for gaming so, my 360 is all I have at the moment (which I'm not complaining about at all, by the way). I really didn't pay attention to this game at all until Giant Bomb's coverage of it in these past couple GOTY videos/bombcasts. It looks like a very interesting game, but is it any good on the 360? I'm not usually into this style of game and I'm sure playing with a controller isn't going to make it any better, but something about this game really interests me.

Its an amazing game. No big issues aside from a few minor gripes. Fully worth the buy.

I'm playing XCOM with a controller on PC. I think you'll be fine on consoles.

I had some disc read error issues but I think that's because I install my games to a flash drive. I have a 4GB 360 and I don't really want to buy an over priced harddrive.

I played it on 360 and its totally great. The occasional bug but controls great and even if this isn't your type of game you might really like it.

Seems great to me.  Been playing it for a few hours.  Install it, if you can.  There was a pleasant and noticeable difference after I installed it.

Its fine and I think console is still the most popular form of gaming. Yes yes the PC has the visual edge now but its not really important to most. Yeah I gonna say most.

This is very exciting to see. I was convinced people were going to say to hold off on getting it for the 360, but I think I'm definitely going to get it now. Thanks guys!

As everyone else said, it's great. The game looks great and plays really well with a controller.

As others have said, it's fine with a controller. I'm playing on PC and I actually prefer the controller. (of course a majority of my gaming was done on consoles until recently)

I played it through on the 360... It ran just fine. I had one lock-up, but was fine after restarting. There was a few graphical and cosmetic inconstancies, but they seem to be platform agnostic. It was great, worth all the love. Enjoy!

Totally fine on 360. My favorite game of the year and played it on 360 and had no issues.

Playing on PC, but using a controller is preferable, so you've got that part covered at least.

Go for it!
