Ratings and Reviews
Great, wonderful, can’t put it down!
Ultimately, the revitalization of the xcom series helps set this game (particularly the re-re-imagining of the game via Enemy Within) as one of the best turn based games of the last few years (you don’t have to take my word for it, check out any game rating site, or meta critic).
This game is worth every penny. It’s one of those games where you may have other, blockbuster, fantastic games to get into… but all you’ll want to do is play XCom. Seriously though, get the enemy within expansion pack. It re-tells the game the way (I suspect) the original developers wanted to, but didn’t get the chance to do because of crushing deadlines for launching the original XCom enemy unknown.
Found a solution for crash on startup
The game kept crashing on startup before reaching the initial splash page. The crash log indicated an issue originating in ‘DNSServiceProcessResult’. I completely disabled internet acess on my computer and it proceeded to start up fine. It appears the problem was originating when the game was attempting to connect to Game Center. Re-enabling internet access while playing the game still appears to cause it to immediately crash. Alternatively, logging out of Game Center appeared to also fix the problem. Notably, my internet connect is otherwise working fine outside of the issue occurring with XCOM.
Awesome Strategy Game…Definately get the add-on
Love this game. The only issue is when apple puts out a new Operating System. I would highly recommend getting the add on for this as it enhances the fun. For those that already have it and found it crashing since the upgrade to El Capitan I guess there is some issue with Game Center. For me I had to log out of game center to get it to load and work. Otherwise, there seems to be no issue. As for this game being repayable…YES. Once you unlock second wave you can customize the game to make it a bit more difficult, fun and definately frustrating at times. As we all know…the computer cheats.
