About the 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.

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.

Before the bureau was a thing,There was X-com Enforcer An arcade third person shooter and one of the few spin offs of the x-com series aside from interceptor(space sim) and Alliance (which wasn't good enough to be finished apparently).

As far story goes it's pretty much the same as the original, but you play as a robot and must save the human race(taken from the most annoying scientist you'll listen to). visuals were ok for 2001, at the time unreal engine 1 looked dated at the time. Music is pretty forgettable, actually I don't think there was music at all. Because throughout the game you only heard a bunch of obnoxious noises.

Each level of the game is this kill aliens,destroy transporters, and rescue survivors......for 5 hours. it's pretty fun....untill you Realise how insanely boring and tiresome it is. not even over the top weapons can save how absolutely Teadious Enforcer is. there is a crapton of enemies making trying to be like a third person smash tv or something. there is also a pacman minigame for some reason and even that's boring. It's pretty short as I said before, But Really it felt more like 10 hours and I just Wanted it to end. Bottom line X-com enforcer has to be the most boring shooter I've ever played.

It's nothing broken but with how annoying and beyond teadious the game is, I just can't reccomend this game unless you're really curious.

overall

4/10 Insanely Monotonous

A clunky old over-the-shoulder shooter that is way past its prime. And I'm not sure it was that good back in the day either. Really simplistic: run around, shoot aliens, pick up health and armor, etc., but not very deep.

One of the worst shooters I have ever played.
This game is an abomination and a blight on the X-COM franchise.
Kill it with fire...

The most boring and simple X-COM game. It's just a bland 3rd person shooter. They didn't even bother to make background music. MicroProse, what were you thinking?
