It is the year 2084. You control a secret organization charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your soldiers, and lead them to victory in turn-based tactical combat.
An excellent recreation of the X-Com and UFO games, with pretty good multiplayer added. It still lacks a few features such weapons platforms and destructible buildings, and the endgame is IMHO incomplete. Other than that it is IMHO the best of the various X-Com recreations out there and best of all it is free.
One major caveat. 2.4 is heavily outdated. I strongly recommend downloading a build of the 2.5 development branch from the project website, ufoai.org , as it contains many updates improvements and bugfixes and is normally quite stable.
Altought the graphics is a bit spritey, the gameplay is as deep as ever. A bit too easy compared to the old TFTD Times, its fun to hunt aliens down and kill 'em.
The Techtree needs a bit overwork, since its too easy to stall in the early game and build up into the overpowered GDF late game.
The models are few but nice. I love it. Will write more as i went later in the game.
well this team has some serious skill.I love the old school cut back to xcom,but it pushes the boundries way more then its predacesor did.Also
i would like to have some voices in your souilders.like old school when you click on a souilder and they say lines.Makes the game more immersive.but a very great game for free of the stuff i love,,so ty for this guys and gals just proves there is nive people in this world that could make money of this calibure but choose to give this to us for free ty and i look forward to more updates and games from this kick *** company.
This game was quite a pleasent surprise! Honestly, after such a while of searching, I couldn't find a remake or even a clone that had the same feel as the original xcom games. UFO:Alien Invasion has the feel. If anything it feels almost exactly like the original xcom games with a modern look and some nice tweeks. Not to mention the fact that the aliens are completely different and that technology while similar follows a different path. This makes for a new game for even die hard fans and experts of the original xcom.
I also love this game because it ran smoothly on my Linux computer which can only play so many decent free games.
I love this game and it has brought back so many memories as well as it made new ones. You should play this game!
