You can often tell how good a game is by how long you can sit down in one sitting and get entranced by the action. With Firaxis’ upcoming reimaging of the classic XCOM: Enemy Unknown, we sat down for 10 minutes to capture some footage for our beloved readers (that's you!), yet 4 hours later we were still playing!
Rather than waffle on like a cocaine addict chatting shit at the pinnacle of his high, a la Human Traffic, we’ll let the narrated gameplay video below do the talking. Let us guide you through the ins and the outs of the battlefield action and then give you a brief look at the strategy hub. It’s like chess on steroids!
That, and let us leave you with the words, based on this hands-on alone, we feel you’d be hard pushed to find a better strategy game in 2012... actually, probably the last few years as well. Just sayin’.
