XCOM: Enemy Unknown

If you love strategy games you will love this. Brought to you by Firaxis, you build a global protection network where you must thwart the onslaught of alien forces using turn based combat missions and research based building tactics. It's intense, for me the combat is crazy. This game is not forgiving.

Give it a try. I give it 7/7 Gamegoldstars. Yep, a seven. Out of all seven.

i tried the demo for 360 and it was pretty fun. i used to love strategy games but my computer hasn't been able to run anything for some time now and most strategy games on console suck. I hope this is a trend and I've heard xcom did well sales wise. the only reason i didn't buy it was because i heard it gets really hard and i'd probably get stuck at some point, get mad and never play it again which is the same reason i'm not getting nfs most wanted either.
