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?

The third game of the series and the more enjoyable one. If you were an old XCOM fan this is the game that was the best in my opnion. Turned based sci fi fun. It's like a virtual Warhammer game but on PC. Although the game is old you can still have plenty of fun playing this game and specially if you're a gaming veteran who played this growing up. As for me this game was made a few months before i was born so as a youling i never got to try this game. 7/10

I just have to replay all the old X-Com every once a while.. I am possessed...

Anyways. My favorite one is TFTD simple because this one happen in one huge city instead of a whole planet. However Apocalypse does offer the best music out of all the X-com and XCOM game so far.

As an old time classic this one will never die out.

There is also issue of DosBox and Insert CD error when running the game. It can be fixxed by install newer version of dosbox your self and use daemon tool to mount image and do full installation.

I just wish steam or someone would release a simple patch to fix this instead of me fixxing it myself.

Anyways. This is not a game to be missed. Newer game may have better graphics or video but classic will be classic forever.

8.5/10.

Had this game been properly realized and finished, there is no doubt in my mind that it would have been the best x-com game.

As it stands, it's still damn good. Don't let the graphics and poor art design fool you.
