About This Game

X-COM: Earth's top-secret eXtraterrestrial COMbat unit

The Place: America - early 21st century

The Mission: Eradicate the extraterrestrials

Alien forces have invaded Earth and are terrorizing the population. To combat this sinister threat, a lone X-COM scientist has created the Enforcer, a high-tech fighting machine made of earthly robotics and scavenged alien technology.

Armed with the latest high-powered weapons, the Enforcer is sent into alien hot spots to fight in adrenaline-charged battles that rage on city streets, across rooftops and in the sewers. YOU are the Enforcer.

Powered by the same game engine as Unreal Tournament™, X-COM ENFORCER™ puts you on the front line of an alien attack.

The unreal engine have never had a game hide it's potensial as much as in this game. Locked vertical sighting with optional full surround sighting only belonging to the x-box console era and oblivion 3rd person shooting.
Would work better as a top-down shooter. Reminds me of flash-games. Upgrade-system and bonus levels were fun.
The only good reason to play this game is so that you can hear the funny voice actor playing the professor.

First of all, X-COM: Enforcer has almost nothing to do with the X-COM series aside from reusing some enemy designs and backgrounds, and even that connection is tenuous at best. So forget all notions of turn-based strategy and base building and all that. This is a simple run and gun TPS.

You run through loosely divided sections killing absolutely everything you come across -- in this case, enemies that spawn from generators. You only wield one weapon at a time and can pick up others as they spawn in the level (and they respawn after a while). Killing enemies makes them drop points (literally) which you gather and can trade in for upgrades to your weapons, health, speed etcetera. It's all kept as mindless as possible -- run around for too long without direction and you get a gentle reminder of where you're supposed to go, in the form of a big blue blinking arrow over your head, so that, in theory, even the biggest idiot can find his way around. Even so, I managed to get stuck at level 3, where you're supposed to go up somewhere but I could find no way of getting there -- the game has no mini-map or mouselook. Whether that says something about the game or me, I wouldn't care to say.

It reminded me a little of Painkiller (there's even a weapon that shoots blades), except that Painkiller has more variety, better graphics and higher difficulty. This game is by no means a classic, but as far as mindless fun goes it does what it sets out to do. I'm giving it a vague "not recommended" based on just the half hour of play I had with it. I can't really recommend buying it on its own, but as long as you don't go in expecting strategy, it's an inoffensive addition to the X-COM Complete Pack.

Screw whatever anyone says about this game. Most people only hate this game cause they played 30 minutes and assumed that the game's never picking up, or just know it's a 3rd person shooter of a beloved strategy game, which means it'll automatically be bad. Enforcer is far from that.
You haven't lived till you've gone mach 5 around a mall, launching grenades everywhere in a fountain of death, obliterating all in your path. There are countless weapons and powerups in this game to please you (do not unlock the freeze gun), and the upgrade system allows you to improve just what you want. This upgrade system is key to the game, as it's what turns a rather simple character into the super sonic, destructive Enforcer he should be. The main objective of about every level is "Murder Every Alien", and that's all you need really. Beautiful death and carnage for the sake of it.
The levels are generally very open and allow for exploration, which will let you unlock bonus levels and get more points and more upgrades. But they never feel mandatory, so you're free to just kill to your heart's content. The game allows you to check at any time where the next enemy spawner is, so that you can go there to kill things without having to get lost, allowing the flow of the killing to proceed unhindered.
The game does suffer from some flaws, as any will. If you take too long to go to an objective, your scientist ally will persistently annoy you to continue onwards. A few of the guns, such as the aforementioned freeze gun, will be useless and since the only way to get rid of a gun you're carrying is to use up your ammo or find a different one, it can create a problem at times.
Beyond those, the rest are insignificant upon this beautiful creation. The game isn't really complex or as deep as its predecessors, but it doesn't have to be. The game succeeded in being a well-made, over the top, insane shooter, and it succeeds well.

Do you like Gauntlet? Do you have a soft spot for the impressionistic nature of the simple geometry and low resolution textures of c. 2000 Unreal and Quake maps? Does finding letters inside of colorful balls bring back good memories of Bubble Bobble?
This is pretty playabe with a gamepad too if you remember your UT console commands from 15 years ago. Type "preferences" in the console and you'll be tapping A to bound from roof to roof of boxy trailer homes in search of the next alien spawning thingy in no time.

Plays like kind of a more Gauntlet-y MDK2, or something (vaguely proto-Mass Effect, which I suppose would make sense since Bioware developed MDK2). Looks and feels like chunky polygonal PC games circa late '90s and 2000, e.g. Deus Ex, Quake III, Unreal Tournament — and maybe a little bit Dreamcast-y, even...! Instead of UT's bellowing HOLY SH!T, you've got a nasally lab geek cheering you on as you mow down aliens and gather upgrade points. Mainly worth a look if you've got nostalgia for the era, and fun with a controller.

I have to start off by telling you not to buy this unless you got the X-COM: Complete Pack or if you really appreciate crappy games.
Before The Bureau: XCOM Declassified was Enforcer, and...

There just isn't any strategy involved at all. It's really quite mindless. Basically, all you do is listen to the annoying scientist guy who made you (the enforcer robot) while killing every alien, destroying every teleporter, and rescueing every civilian. That's literally what you do for the majority of levels. The gameplay is just so monotonous. You can unlock weapons and stuff, but there still isn't much variation. I don't remember hearing any music. It's just overall... a really crappy shooter. It's so bad, it might even seem good if it wasn't so monotonous. For $4.99 USD, it's not even worth it. There are better XCOM games to play (both new and old).

It's bad, but addicting. If you win it on some giveaway, give it a shot. But it ain't worth any price. You do the same thing all of the time.

You know, when I was playing this game, The first thing that came to mind was how terrible it was. It was just the same repetitive missions of going around and shooting at a menagerie of aliens and destroying their teleporters, as well as saving human civilians. There was no real challenge to it, and the upgrades didn't even matter, you could just play it with out having to get any, it was just tacked on there to make the game seem like it was more complex than it really was. There was no challenge, no satiscation, no point to any of it.

And then it hit me, what this game was really all about. As Spec Ops : The Line is about the horrors of war and the ways of man, this game was about life in general. Are we not all just machines, doing the same, unfulfilling tasks that have no real purpose to them. We do this things thinking that maybe something will change along the way, something new, but it's always just the same stuff. Money is of no real purpose except for using it to get products that we don't really need but get just so we can fill that empty void inside of us. We go down a road of mediocrity, living an empty shell of a life, always thinking about the things we could have done, but never will (just like the time we could have spent instead of playing this game). Soon we are nothing but decrepit forms of are once youthful selves, and we can do nothing else but wait until the final grains of our life are taken from us, and then finally know some form of peace.

The game is still ♥♥♥♥ though.

This game isn't a turn based strategy game like most X-Com games. When you get past this point it's actually enjoyable to shoot your way through the levels of the game (with the exception of one level where you have to protect prisoners for 2 minutes). This game reminded me of Gauntlet Legends on the Nintendo 64.


I played this through in a single co-op sitting. It's only good for that one playthrough.

This game is terrible. I love the other X-COM games, but this... this is just all around bad. Basically all you do is save civilians and destroy transporters, the end. The game is super easy as well, you will blow through most missions in under 5 minutes.

Old school goodness to be sure. Mindless violence, tons of enemies coming at you, minimal storyline. Reminds me a lot of Serious Sam. Don't let anyone tell you differently, this gem from the past was an incredibly fun shooter. Solid A
