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.
Amazing game, one of the better turn-based tactics games I've played in recent years. Very well balanced, interesting lore, lots of maps and a well-built campaign. Can't wait till I get started with multiplayer too! In short, you HAVE to play this, person!
IMO this can be cosidered as one of the best and most complete Open-Source games existing at the moment.
The only thing it is missing (yet?) compared to the old "X Com"-games is destroyable environments, which is just a small downside though, as it does well offer the fun and charm of the old game in a modernized way.
Nice turn based-game inspired to the x-com series. Unlike most other x-com-style games it mantains intact the original spirit of the title. It has also nice graphics and music. Not to forget it is completely open-source and costantly under heavy development. Love it.
Very, very fun to play, and is really worth a download. Also, its free, so thats a plus. The only things i could suggest it would be the ability to manipulate your surroundings (ie. blow up a wall with a missle launcher), aswell as randomly generated maps, like in the original x-com game.
