Oh boy, saying that this game is a priceless gem would be the understatement of the century, considering that this game is almost twenty-years-old and is still absorbing almost 400 hours of my time is an impressive feat, also this is only my time on this computer, as I have another 600 hours on other systems combined. I started playing the original X-COM when I was six and almost instantly fell in love with it, however, with this game It has so much more content (and even more planned). The thing is, I absolutely love this game, it is likely my favorite of all time, the only one competing with it is the original X-COM. If anyone from Firaxis sees this review, create a poll on your X-COM forums and ask about how many would like to see a remake (or even a HD remastering while adding the features planned for it) for X-COM Apocalypse, I promise you, it is worth a financial investment, as it will sell like hot-cakes. This is one of those few games that is so good its just begging for a remaster. If you want to see a X-COM Apocalypse remake, give this review a thumbs up!

This is the original game, just as awesome as I remember it. It works well and gives the same experience as when I played it when it first came out. The challenge with the game is that it runs in DOSBOX, which starts giving errors once you start expanding your bases and having large numbers of units. You then start experiencing what looks like memory errors in DOSBOX, which makes the game unplayable. The STEAM support option advises that you go to http://support.2kgames.com which for some reason does not exist or open on my PC. There ends my enjoyment of the game... :(
If the bug is fixed, I will recommend the game, but with the bug, the game is just not playable.

Equip a team of twelve dual-wielding commandos with power swords and mini-missile launchers, pack them all inside a bunch of hoverbikes and go raid a temple of alien worshipping cultists while yelling "XENOS LOVE IS HERESY".

Do you really need more of a recommendation?

This game gives you more freedom than any other X-COM game to this day. I went rogue, made a living by raiding corporate warehouses (and maybe killing aliens on the side) and blew up half the city and still had a steady cash flow from reselling the stuff I stole.

Eventually I blew up too many cabs and they refused to send new personnel to my base. The moral of the story is, don't ♥♥♥♥ with the cab drivers. 10/10

was really excitted to play this game again, however, steam didnt care to much about it as it comes with dosbox, sounds ok still? dosbox creates so many glitches and graphic errors its unplayable...........well, it plays but i remember playing this game on win 95 and dosbox makes the game freak out. it drops frame rate to like 3 on a good pc and graphics are soooo glitchey, some screens dont even load at all untill you wave the mouse around like in paint untill you literally paint the screen back. i wanted a good version as anyone can use dosbox to get a game playing and it wont cost you a penny............very sadly i recommed to avoid :(
