What's New in Version 1.6.0
Fixed save file and text issues for players using devices set in Russian or Polish
5 star, if it actually had iPad 2 support
This is definitely a 5 star game. However, the frequency of crashes on the iPad 2 is outrageous. It would be nice that if the game is "supported" to work on the iPad 2 that it would actually work. It is slower than on my iPhone 5 but I'm ok with
that. It crashes so much on the iPad 2 that it isn't worth the purchase, it's just frustrating. I really hope the game developer is paying attention to the reviews and are coming up with an update to improve performance and fix some of the crashing issues.
The game itself is amazing, no complaints at all. It's awesome to have the ability to do so many things within this game. I have always loved the X-Com series, this game does not disappoint. This gamers totally worth the price provided you have a system that isn't the minimum requirements.
Near perfect translation of PC/ console game. I did have big reservations about the cost of the game before I bought it, but those concerns fell away as soon as I started playing it.
You WILL get your money's worth out of this game. I've been playing it at least 4 hours a day for the past 3 days and I've barely scratched the surface of the campaign.
I own the 360 version and now I play it on my iPad 3 and iPhone 5s (which actually runs it a bit smoother). I love every version. Developers did a great job porting to the different devices.
iPad Mini - Crashes and Performance
I loved the PC version of this game, so, I suppose in many ways my expectations were a bit high. The game is not very performant and a bit laggy on an iPad Mini, further to that I've experienced a number of crashes back to the desktop which results in having to continuously save after each and every action, if you remember. Other than the above issues, the game itself is a pretty direct port from PC/Console version which in it's own right is a great achievement.
