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.
In some ways, UFO: AI is superior to paid Xcom titles. The interface is simpler (larger buttons, fewer screens, larger text, fewer options, key information such as item costs and build-times is presented up-front and clearly); the gameplay more intuitive. I also like that I didn't have to consult a manual to figure out how to play the game. Finally, this game is actually fun to play. While the music offerings are limited, they fit PERFECTLY with the gameplay. And after playing the game for over an hour, I had to tear myself away from my PC. Kudos to the developer for putting together a quality offering.
Downsides: Very basic graphics, aliens are clones of each other, graphical glitches (especially line of sight and clipping)
Plus: Music, weapon variety, true to the Xcom gameplay style, easy to pick-up, fun to play
