What they thought about it

"IGN selected X-COM as the Top Game of All Time. At first glance that appeared an odd choice. I was a little taken aback that something flashier or more popular wasn't chosen. But I didn't necessarily disagree. "Yeah, X-COM was pretty damn good," I thought. But after spending the last three weeks rediscovering the maddeningly addictive nature of X-COM, I have to shrug and nod. Yep, I'd say this the best game ever." - IGN review

"The gameplay is great. Custom characters, great storyline, and simple combat make it absorbing. Graphics and sound are simple fare. It's not for those who want to be wowed by imagery. Well worth buying: what it lacks in flash, it makes up for in playability." - PC Gamer review
