This game is absolutely confusing. My first mission bring me to no where and no guide to complete the mission. In other word.... I'm LOST !!!

I used to play the Demo Version of this game on the Descent Freespace PC Gamer CD-ROM & it's still the best game even in its Full Version Format. Build your Space Colonies, Research Tech & Enlist Pliots as you take on the Alien Invaders in this 4th Installment of the X-COM Series that is made for MS-DOS & Windows 95/98/2000 & XP 32-Bit PCs.

Can not even be bothered. As cheep as the normal X-Com games can get to the point that you don't want to play them. At least they work! How is this on sale? I look at the controlls and already my brain begins to swim. I can't figure out how the controlls are meant to work. My older usb controllers are uesless since the joy sticks are shot, and it want's to use those for some reason. And I can't find any way to make my x-box controller work with this without having another migrain. NOT WORTH IT! BROKEN! DO NOT BUY UNLESS THEY FIX IT!

I can not recommend this game, on the other hand I can not not recommend this game. It's... complicated.
Before I start explaining, let me link this XKCD comic.

X-COM interceptor is a bad game, but in some peculiar way, enjoyable. Put simply: it's so bad it's good.
I can not in good faith recommend it, because it's bad, on the other hand I can't not recommend it, because it's possible that you may enjoy it.

On strategic side, it's a typical X-COM styled game, adapted to specific environment. You build bases, expand them with modules, research techs (story-wise you download them from Galactic Science Corps, gameplay wise it's just like research in every other such game), you hire pilots, buy craft, weapons and equipment, and send them to intercept UFOs.

Combat is centred about classic dogfighting, with "air drag", max speed and other such elements which are staple of oldschool dogfighting, but make no sense in space. Not that it's unusual for "space" flight sim, a lot are guilty of that and it's not necessarily a bad thing.
Word of warning, combat is very fast paced, so fast that it takes some time to get used to. That's not a problem though, your wingmen are very capable and will win fights for you, until you start carrying your own weight.

That's about facts, but what makes it enjoyable?
Hard to say, attempts at humour are corny, reading "news from Earth" will make you groan or facepalm, interface is clunky because it pretends to be retro-futuristic in-universe screens/displays, combat repetitive and simplistic which leaks into strategic layer also making it simplistic.
Still, campaign is short, individual missions rarely take more then minute, big chunk of which is "fly in", and "hyperspace out" animations, and this is probably what saves Interceptor: it's too short to bore you (too much).

All in all, it's very subjective, I give negative review because it's bad, but I did enjoy it in a way, maybe you will too?



Side note: there's a bug that makes enemy installations impossible to kill, it's solved in unofficial .exe patch, but launching Interceptor with this exe prevented Steam from properly logging my playtime, hence so low value - contrary to what Steam says, I did play game from start to end.

Imagine trying to swat musquitos out of the air, while you have a couple of dumbells tied to your wrists. That's basically the fights in this game. Enemies zipped around me and I could never get them in my field of view for more than a split second as they zoomed past me. Maybe I just suck but if the first mission of the game is just enemies running circles around me can't imagine it gets better.

It's X-COM but in SPACE!!!!!

This game has not aged especially well from 1998 but it does have some charm left deep inside it's husk. Changing up the formula after three terrestrial X-COM games, Interceptor takes the fight to the aliens.

While the classic base building, research and soldier management are all present. The core gameplay is a space flight sim, which if you can convince it to play well with modern controllers can still be fun if silly time.

This game is great for those people who like the overall planning of the original X-com but didn't like the slow pace of the battles. It takes the same experience and replaces those tactical battles with a space fighter sim. It's definately fun but it's a bit of a departure from the rest of the series.

If you are playing on a modern system(xp-recent) then there will be a game breaking bug for this game that will prevent research from completing. THERE IS A FIX FOR THIS and it is a must if you are gonna play it on a modern machine. The thread for it is here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1722992

X-COM: Interceptor is different than most other XCOM games. Instead of being a turn-based ground combat game, it is an amazing real-time space combat game. Like most XCOM games, you have to manage resources, bases, and soldiers (or in this case, pilots). It isn't too well optimized for modern computers and I think the resolution has a maximum of somewhere around 1080x720, but it is still a great game.

The best part, though, is that it isn't X-COM: Enforcer.

I love this game and alway have. Sadly if you are playing on a relatively new machine there will be some game killing bugs. 1) alien data jammers can't be killed. If you try to engage them they just dont show up leaving u in space chasing a radar blip that you can never catch untill u get bored and retreat. Its a pain because they shut down your research and there is nothing you can do about it. 2) pirate bases have the same bug. You can't kill them so get ready to fight suicidal pirate fighter craft every 5 minutes. Not fun. If you have an old rig picking up dust somewhere the sure buy this game and enjoy because it really is a fantastic game. But if you don't then I'd pass.

Ahh, Interceptor. A not so great flight sim mixed with a not so great strategic game which somehow when merged together forms a very very playable and very fun (and it's still hard, though easiest out of all the old school X-COM games) game.

If u like Xcom and/or flight sim games, then u will probably enjoy this. I thought it was pretty hard at first, but once I figured out how to play, I had a LOT of fun. I think this game is really underrated. It has all of the cool base management of Xcom, but then the battles are real-time flight sim. The campaign is awesome, and I also really like that there's a "skirmish mode" that u can create your own custom practice battle and jump right into the action and/or practice your fighting skills if needed. I definitely recommend! =)

I hear so much hate for Interceptor, but it really is unique. I've never encountered an X-Wing style game where you also control the strategic side. After all those times you were hideously outgunned, or had completely the wrong warheads etc on X-Wing, TIE Fighter etc, it's nice to be able to do something about that. Now it's YOUR job to make sure your craft are up to spec. Also ties UFO, TFTD and Apoc together nicely, and hey its a great game in it's own right. Yes, it isn't the game everyone expected when a new X-Com game was announced back in 1997, but it's a worthy addition to the series.

Fun but ship combat is bad until you get tracing guns that auto target for you, until this point, you are dead weight on your team.

I wish there was another game that did what X-com Interceptor did, a number of people didnt like this one of the series but i loved it most... unfortunatly it doesnt run well on new PC's, so i would caution anyone buying it to do it when theres a sale just incase.
