About the Game

The story is situated on Mars. It starts where UFO: Aftermath left off and runs simultaneously with UFO: Aftershock. While the Laputans on Earth are fighting Wargots and Starghosts and finding out what caused the destruction of their home planet, a small colony on Mars is trying to survive and flourish.

The player will gain more details about the activities of intergalactic organisms, called Myrmecols, in the solar system. The scientific research and communication with different factions on the Earth gives him a different perspective on the events of the two previous sequels. In UFO: Afterlight, the players will meet with brand new technologies, unusual environment and enemies both old and unknown.

Twice I played the demo for this game and twice I hated it, but I broke down and bought it on sale because I love these types of games. Take your time to get used to the controls and you'll never regret it. There is so much research my head is swimming. You can control sections (many) of Mars and actually get them back if they are taken away from you. Unlike other games...

I gave this a positive review as it was a decent attempt at a UFO: Defense clone. This of course is the standard that any UFO tactical game is compared to. I still prefer the play-style of providing individual unit orders and cover over the "stop time when you want to give a new order" strategy. I find that I make decisions based on how long it takes to give out orders rather than what is tactically smart.

Initially the tech tree was incredibly confusing. I had to research and find detailed descriptions for how to produce sniper rifles and shotguns. In-game you have no idea what you need to be able to research something new. (Which might be realistic) Additionally there is very little activity on forums or walkthroughs. The most annoying part of the game was that when I finished a technology the game doesn't tell you what you researched or how it would help you. I usually couldn't remember what I was researching so it was painful.

After 35 hours of playtime I got to the point where the missions were getting harder but the remainder of the tech tree wasn't going to help me. Finally I just decided to go play XCOM: EW, a much, much better continuation of the series.

This game feels like a modern version of the old XCOM games, even more so than the modern XCOM games. So if you like infuriating micromangement and punishing opponents then this is definitely a game to try out.
