One of the timeless classics and a milestone in the history of video games. The graphics may have aged but the gameplay did not - it remains as challenging frustrating but rewarding game as it was when I played it for the first time (around 1995).
Funny how this game inspired so many others none of them actually surpassing this one...

When people ask me: "Mark, you like PC games, what's your favourite game?" I respond with "X-Com, with the - in it" and they often get confused with the modern XCOM, but I further clarify with "The one from 1993". Which is normally the point where they pretend to look at their watch, make an excuse and walk out of the room.

So why in 2015 is my favourite game still this? Well firstly, I'm going to outline what makes this game so special. And then to wrap it up, I'll tell you how you can enjoy it in the modern world. Because for me this game is still my personal favourite.

X-Com puts you firmly on the back foot from the very start. Aliens have invaded and it's your job to mount Earth's final defense against the Alien foe before we are all killed or enslaved or something happens (the intention of the invasion isn't clear to begin with). What you spend most of the game doing, is trying to shoot down enemy UFO's with your rubbish fighter jets, and then trying to fight the Alien's at the UFO crash site with your poorly equipped troops.

I use terms like "rubbish" and "poorly equipped" because you are fighting Aliens here. Not Germans, not Japanese, not another nation - but mother-♥♥♥♥ing ALIENS. These guys have better weapons than you, better vision than you and more resources than you. They flew across the galaxy to fight us, and the only thing you can do at the start of the game is fight them off with humanities best and brightest, which just isn't enough.

This means that your troops will die. A lot. And it's mean, and it's unfair and the game is obviously hard because of that. But at great cost of life, humanity is able to claw it's way back and slowly put up more of a fair fight. As you recover Alien technology from your encounters, and spend time researching it, the X-Com scientists are then able to reverse engineer the technology into better equipment. This can be armour that can survive a few shots, or better weapons, or ground and air vehicles. Slowly but surely, humanity is able to avoid extinction.

You are fighting for the very survival of the human race, and that's not meant to be easy. Fortunately the game equips you with the systems you need to be successful but it's on YOU to work out how to do it. This is a game where you might have to watch some tutorial videos on YouTube or read the manual. And if you do these things, you will be rewarded with one of the deepest and enjoyable single player experiences that you can have.

So if you read this and you're willing to invest a bit of time to enjoy the game. After all, it is only £3! I recommend you use OpenXcom to play the game. You won't be able to launch the game through Steam, but it gives you much better performance on modern systems than playing the original game through DOSBox. The alternative is that you check out Xenonauts which is a faithful recreation of X-Com using an updated UI, better graphics and a bit more automation (such as not having to order ammunition and things). I know it sounds a bit odd, but Xenonauts is so faithful to X-Com that if you don't think you can cope with how dated this game is, I would encourage you to treat this as a review for Xenonauts. Other than very minor tweaks, and a change to air combat, they are essentially the same game.

This game does have learning curve, but there's no other game out there that can really pull you in and make you feel like you really are the last hope of humanity. If you fail, life as we know it is over.

Easily a classic and one of the best TBS games of all time, I still remember playing the demo on an old 3.5" diskette.
A must have for any XCOM or turn-based strategy (in general) fan.
While I enjoyed Enemy Unknown, in my mind, it is a watered down (though polished) version of this classic.

Don't let the dated graphics sway you, the gameplay and atmosphere are top notch.
They just don't make em like they used too...I must be getting old :/

Hands down THE best strategy game of all time. So tense, layered, emotional and nerve-wrackingly brilliant that I dedicated half my Steam username to honouring X-com and my many, many, many brave fallen soldiers. RIP chaps and chapesses, sorry I couldn't save you all!

Finally, I beat the game. Long winded, fun strategy game that makes you feel like your always trying to keep your head above water. You will have the most fun if you accept your losses(not reloading a save to improve an outcome) and take your time. After losing bases and high ranking soldiers It will take a long time to recover, but with some research and skin of your teeth luck can overcome the obstacles the game sets for you. After a hundred and eleven hours I was ready for the game to be over, but along the way I gained many good memories of the epic, tense battles to look back on.

X-COM: UFO Defense is a fantastic game if you are the sort of person who likes turn-based combat mixed with basebuilding and management.
The gameplay consists of managing your base on a world map, where UFOs show up at regular intervals. After you've scrambled some jets and nailed those suckers, a "mission" becomes available. The mission consists simply of sending out your forces to the crashsite where you have to eliminate survivors in turn-based combat.
During the game your forces will become stronger and with the help of research, new and better equipment will be available for production. This will come in handy, seeing as the aliens also become stronger and more resillient as the game progress. I find that the difficulty curve is quite nice, up to a point when the most powerfull weapons become available, after that the game becomes a little trivial. Still, this does not happen untill late in the game, and that's more than a couple of hours of gameplay.
The turnbased combat I find very entertaining. There is a load of different aliens with different abilities, all of whom are dedicated to kill your elite soldier squad. Some will make you moan in annoyance, as they take control of your soldiers, and others scream in terror as they charge forward and impregnate your soldiers turning them into "zombies". Atleast that's what I did when I first played this game as a very young little boy.
The graphics and sound in the game is well, old, but many a great game survives purely on gameplay, and this is one of those games. The graphics are probably the games biggest weakness, but also one of it's charms I think. This is an old school game, for old school gamers, specificly for the type that likes turnbased combat with a mix of basebuilding. So take a trip down memory lane and give this little gem a chance - also make sure to get help on the boards on setting up the game...

This is it. The game. There is no "genre" for TBS. There is also no base-building genre. No, this is the only game of those genres in existence. Don't look it up; just trust me, and throw all your money at the screen in the name of Julian Gollop.

XCOM: UFO Defense (previously known as UFO: Enemy Unknown before the 2012 reboot stole its name-- why not come up with a new name, was it really necessary to steal the old name?) is, as I mentioned, THE turn based strategy game. It's suffered from aging mechanics and the limited capabilities of early Windows and late DOS platforms, but other than that has remained intact only because few have attempted to replicate it, and even fewer have succeeded.

This is NOT going to be an easy game to play. Let me just get that out of the way. Your troops WILL die. You will ♥♥♥♥ up. And that's okay; that's XCOM. Unlike XCOM 2012, there's no dicerolling, no RNG hitscan. Every bullet is precisely calculated to do damage to the target it hits-- with that meaning you.

In this title, there is no shame in going through the first pages of the manual your disc came with-- what, no disc? Don't worry, it's nicely packed in PDF form if you go to the game's steamapps files. The game itself offers no handholding across the street, and you'll have to watch it closely to make sure it doesn't throw you under a bus.

Play on Beginner if you need to, Challenging if you have the nerve, any higher and you shouldn't cry when your inevitable loss comes around-- you earned it yourself. And that pretty much sums up this game.

Unlike 2012's reboot, everything you do in this game is done by you. You have more control over XCOM and more in-depth micromanagement of your arsenal and supplies. You won't have multiple abductions at once, you have a constant view of the whole world, you can have multiple skyrangers, and you can establish multiple bases. Micromanage your arsenal and supplies, build the square 6x6 grid that is your base, and kiss the ♥♥♥ of the council enough to survive.
--
It's a no-brainer whether the average strategy gamer will want this or not-- give it a shot, you'll probably like it once you figure out what the shiny red and green interface buttons and knobs do. The question is...
-Will you buy it alone, or do you like suffering enough to continue on to Terror from the Deep and the legendary Crawler Carrier missions?
-Maybe you'll continue even farther (or be rational and skip TftD), and defend a smaller-scale urban area from an alien assault in XCOM Apocalypse?
-Or maybe you'll just buy the $15 XCOM Complete Pack and play through all three strategy games, a space-combat/base management hybrid in SPACE, and... some ♥♥♥♥♥♥ Unreal Engine 1 game we all deny the existence of!
--
In other words, despite all the bugs, poorly aged mechanics, and clunky DOS interface, plus the use of DOSBOX, I absolutely recommend this game with an 8/10 (9/10 if it weren't a messy DOSBOX port). With OpenXCom, go on and raise that ♥♥♥♥ to 10!

Mod Showcase: OpenXCom
A complete overhaul of the original game that fixes some of the clunky interface and removes the need for DOSBOX, plus gives us resolution options and optional improvements such as tweaked bulletcam and better sprites, as well as mutators. Definitely worth checking out, since the changes to AI behavior it makes are optional.

Recommended Purchase Method: XCOM Complete Pack
Buy all three classic XCOM games, get Interceptor for free! We don't talk about Enforcer.

Its a old game but is one of the good ones. You start with normal ordinary weapon and armor and men but when you get in to the depths of the game its intense. In my opinion its better than the Xcom: Enemy Unknown game. The only thing I disliked would be that some the death screams are disturbing. It is about 20 years old and still has a price in the store so steam must think its cool too.This game really good but if you can have the patience It'll be awesome.

This game is a legacy. X-COM revolutionized turn-based strategy gaming and to this day, though the graphics may have aged, the gameplay does not get old. It's a bit difficult to get into because of a few annoying design flaws such as the fact that there's no in-game explanation of what all those battlescape buttons actually DO, but once you've figured it out this is a great game that every strategy fan should play.

As for the 2012 XCOM game, although that's an amazing game, it's also quite different from this one. Get them both because they're both amazing but in rather different ways. In fact, get the entire series. There's a bundle of the old XCOM series which includes X-COM: UFO Defense, X-COM: Terror from the Deep, and X-Com: Apocalypse, as well as the spinoffs Enforcer and Interceptor which aren't strategy games, per se, and don't work on my computer, but the cheapness of the bundle makes up for that.
