This game feels like an attempt to improve the good old X-com series (Which franky I liked quite a lot). Honestly, I played it through only once and I found it quite enjoyable, but I believe this will mostly apply to people who loved the old series.

It sports the same old train-your-troops, go to turn based battles which makes this this genre unique, however I found the difficulty somewhat unbalanced at points (too easy or damn hard).

All in all, I recommend the game for fans to kill time until you go and play the newer xcom series.

MOST UNDERRATED STEAM GAME I HAVE PLAYED

This game is in many ways the best 'X-COM' type game. It has more variety and more interesting aliens than the original. It has a longer, more detailed research tree. You have to earn promotions more; especially for the officer ranks. The graphics and sounds are much better. With the mods - the aliens can also be much sneakier. And the air intercept missions are better than any X-Com game, except maybye Apocolyspse.
Only drawback, this agme crashes a LOT. (Usually right after a mission or during mission prep screens. Save a lot).
If you can find this game on sale, you owe to yourself to buy it.

Playthrough on hard.

+ Deep research Tree
+ Decent combat
+ Loads of alien types

- The english and grammar is the worse I have ever seen in a game
- Some text elements do not fit on the UI properly: Names and descriptions
- The bee keeper 2 armour is brown in the equip screen but green in combat
- If more than one soldier reacts to an alien but it dies with the first soldier shooting the other soldiers waste their reaction shooting nothing
- If the second or third shot in an auto shot would fire where the is no line of sight it stops the attack completely
- Mind shield has no description of how to actually use it
- The Cruiser ship type barely has an appearance before the enemy start spamming heavier ships
- Defences can be completely destroyed in one hit, not disabled and can take up to 40 days to build, in which time you can get attacked multiple times
- The only ships to attack bases are battleships, which can spawn right next to the base they are going to attack giving you no chance to shoot it down first.
- Base defences are weak.
- On terror missions, piss poor enemy and civilian placement means most civilians die on the first turn. (An in game item lets you see this)
- Ships need an instant return distance around bases because they sometimes spin around a lot before entering them.
- Reaction shots should NOT BE AUTOSHOTS.

Its really good and almost to faithful to the original. That means lots of micro management. Great face lift to X-com but a little to samy. After finishing the exelent Xenonaughts I really cant play this mico management remake. Steam needs a new recommend button: Maybe

UFO: Extraterrestrials Gold

Background:
Purchased as part of a bundle from Bundle Stars. I played X-Com so many times when I was in University and completed it and Terror from the Deep at least once. Played this for over 20 hours.

Impressions:
So much nostalgia. UFO really captures everything about the original X-Com game perfectly and with updated graphics to match modern displays but many of the graphics look unpolished but functional. But that's not where the heart of UFO is.. it's in the strategic management of cash, research, building, manufacturing, expanding and alien hunting.

As ever the missions are the best part: shoot down a UFO over land you get to send your team on a mission to slay/stun the invaders and bring back their technology, corpses and the occasional live specimen for your own probing experimentation... then it's back to base to research and re-equip.

I had a lot of nostalgic fun with the game and while the weak graphics do jar the game mechanics are as solid and fun as ever.

The Bman mod is included and it's well worth tinkering with the well annotated mods before you start playing. There is a temptation to make the game really easy (and the mod will let you make things a lot simpler.. giving more cash and stats for missions, etc.) but if you try some moderate tweaks you'll find the game remains a lot of fun while making progress easier. I recommend playing the game untweaked till you learn the ropes and then start a new game with the tweaks that make it fun for you.

The Good:
*Recaptures the feel of the original X-Com game all too well.
*Lots to buy and equip.
*Missions are really fun and get more so as you level up.
*Renaming and equipping troops makes a squad to be proud of.
*Random base missions are fun and add extra drama.
*Lots of replay value.
*Can save at almost any time.


The Bad:
*No tutorial: using med packs was really confusing until i googled it.
*Visuals are sometimes under whelming.
*Slow loading of sector map on missions.
*Slow processing of alien moves when out of line of sight.
*Obtaining and identifying Commanders is really tough without a mod tweak.
*Some aliens are invisible to some marines (when floating over rocks).
*Feels really dated, which works for fans of the original.
*Grenades can feel overpowered.
*Saves are too useful for avoiding heavy losses that are hard to come back from.

Recommended for:
Lovers of the first 2 X-Com games. Sci-fi fans who like their aliens unfriendly and their humans just as violent. Fans of strategy games will have something to get into here too.

Conclusion.
7/10. Huge fun once you get past the visuals and start to enjoy the strategy and base management elements.

This is an amazing UFO: Enemy Unknown remake. The Gold edition (Lite Bman's mod) made the vanilla version a much better game. If possible install the Full version of Bman's mod to fix some bugs and add some extra content (sounds and original xcom aliens) to the game. There's also a great mod to the game called Grayfiend's Unimod that improves the graphics details, adds new gameplay mechanics, adds the ability to play on Earth, improves the tactical maps randomization, etc.

Not sure why but this seems to be ignored by most XCOM fans, although it is a quite good and fairly modern version of the originals. Of course now that the new 3D remake is available this may seem obsolete and it still suffers from a few bugs, but if you are in the mood it still can be fun to play through at least once. The game plays well, the visuals are nothing special but look good still and the gameplay (both the combat and the base management) is fluid and flawless.

I highly recommend this if you liked the original XCOM games! I see this game as a more true spiritual successor to XCOM: Ufo Defense (otherwise known as UFO: Enemy Unknown in Australia), and XCOM: Terror from the Deep. It's not just lasers and plasma, but there are multiple levels to alien tech - and the humans, once they have researched them all, come up with their own one, which is even better. Aliens get progressively more difficult, which makes a really long campaign really challenging and rewarding once you get to the end. I just found the new XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a bit short, and much more cinematic - great game on its own right, but not really a spiritual successor to the original XCOM games

This game comes with the btmod and i like how it played. Problem is after awhile it begins to be very easy. I have found another mod using Unimod http://ufogr.com/ which is the best mod i think for this game. The one thing it changes is the air battle is now difficult - aliens are no pushover (which realistically should not be).

Overall this game for me is 10/10 for xcom fans who want to relive the classic XCOM. I have played the new XCOM but this game with Unimod in my opinion is a much better gaming strategy overall. The new XCOM is like too much eyecandy... too little strategy.

If you can look past the many small flaws and anti-climactic ending, UFO: Extraterrestrials is still a very solid game following in the footsteps of X-com.

Sadly, the good parts of the game are overshadowed by the many small flaws, some of which make certain items close to useless. It may also crash at times, but this will not hurt your progress if you save often.

Again, sadly, the variation in enemies leaves something to be desired. There may be a lot of aliens to fight, but the completely random decision of which aliens you end up fighting means that you will see all of them in short succession, and then you will always know what is coming for the rest of the game.

While it is nothing too special and doesn't bring anything new to the genre, it's still worth your time and money if you enjoy(ed) X-com and similar games.

Great game, really this is what fans of UFO series by microprose should be wanting to play.

Part 2 is due for release within a month or two, i hope anyone who is a UFO gaming fan buys this title.

While it isn't X-Com, I still think it's a very good game, especially the gold edition (which means they included some community mods) is very good. With the mod added options you can pretty much completely choose your own difficulty in every area and a lot of complexity is added, if you like X-com but want something a little more modern while waiting for Xenonauts or the new X-com to finish, try this.
