Great game/minor issues

It's a wonderful game with an overall XCOM feel that came with the console and PC versions however the game is laden with bugs same as it's predecessor. ONE of the game breaking bugs for me was the fact that I couldn't use my medkit on any of my characters, even if the situation was correct the game wouldn't recognize it. It made me anally frustrated. You could even say that I was butthurt.

I would also like to point out that this version gives you VERY LIMITED customizability for your characters. You CANNOT change uniforms or uniform colors like in the console versions. There is also no helmets option for character heads which is a sore miss.

Lastly there are no cinematic kill cams which was a fun option for the console versions. It isn't as pertinent but transitioning from console to iOS really shows the difference in gameplay.

Even though I've ranted it is an incredibly addicting and fun game to play. I've been playing it nonstop.

One of my favorite games

I originally played this game on my first gen iPad mini. It would crash on me from time to time, the characters looked kind of gross during the gameplay, but it was still really fun, and despite the sputters of crashes I still made my way through it. Recently though I just updated to a new iPad mini with retina display, and I re downloaded the game to see how it was on the faster chip, and I was blown away. Not only does it run super smooth, the graphics are ten times better. The game is perfect now.
As far as everything else goes, the game is fun and challenging. Always throwing you curve balls and you expand to rise to the challenge. New players might want to start on normal or easy to get a feel for the game, but I recommend the game to all players, especially those who love strategy and a challenge.

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.
