When it was first revealed that the new XCOM was going to be a FPS with RPG additions the original fans weren’t very impressed at all and have been complaining to anyone who will listen ever since.
Now while I’m inclined to agree with them and feel that 2K shouldn’t have jumped on the FPS bandwagon it’s to late to change now and to be fair the new XCOM story is sounding pretty impressive.
The new story explores the origin of the XCOM team and takes a closer look at the people who made up the first members of this elite government task force.
Thankfully it’s not a pure run and gun FPS with some solid RPG elements and a smattering of RTS tactics included.
It’s not at the top of my list of games to experience but I am intrigued by what it’s offering.
