This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
Looking for a break from all the mindless killing? Enemy Within is like a chess match in some regards and you need to pick your moves accordingly. The expansion adds new life to a game begging for multiple play throughs to begin with. The upgrades, augments, and meta game itself become an addiction you look forward to even while on missions. There is no other game quite like this one and if you enjoy a game with a calmer pace that involves some serious decision making then you owe it to yourself to pick this up. The intensity of the missions becomes increasingly apparent as you progress and move further in the game. My advice to beginners is to focus on building satellite uplinks and allotting as many satellites as you can early on to the countries in need. Your monthly income will increase with each country you have a satellite in. Good luck and enjoy this one of a kind strategy game that is truly a legendary game.

I love...LOVE turn base strat games and RTS in general, i have xcom enemy unknown and love it to death accept for the 95% chance of hitting and you end up missing, but im really looking forward to this. A expansion that adds another resource, mechs, plenty of new maps and other goodies i cannot wait for this.

Here are my biggest complaints. 1. Line Of Sight. Multiple times i was standing 5 feet away from enemy with no cover between us and I had 25-50% chance to hit. 2.Accuracy. Majority of the time u will miss and enemy will hit. 3.Cover Mechanic is the other thing that doesnt work. Majority of the time u are in full cover, the enemy will hit u. Seems like the cover just doesnt cover u at all. Get used to hiring new squad after every mission cause since cover doesnt work your squad will always be injured. I just remember from enemy unknown that I was able to complete 4 or 5 missions in a row without getting injured. Now everyone gets injured and its hard to complete missions with rookies all the time. In my opinion, enemy unknown was better.

Can't wait for this game! xcom by itself was awesome but there were glitchs they never patched also i hope there CO-OP it would make this game 10/10 if it does it would be really fun. in Co-op mode you and a friend start out with 2 soldiers each and when you upgrade your soldiers then you and your friend will have up to 3 to 4 soldiers each but to be fair in co-op there should be more aliens in co-op mode to make the game a bit hard also if there is co-op there should be ways to kick players who are trolling etc. also in multiplayer there should make teams like 2 vs 2 with big maps with cool game modes like hardcore mode etc. so if any dev's see this post then Please Put Co-op!!!.

I play co-op already with my buddy on the couch. We just determine which soldiers are his an which are mine before we go into battle. Then we hand off the controller when we have moved our soldiers. Even with communication it makes the game more fun and challenging since both people think about strategy differently. Sometimes it works great and sometimes it bombs but it's always fun to play. I almost can play it solo anymore. :)

Everything travis said is true except the trolling part. Trolling isn't trolling at all people just like to think if they aren't doing what they want them to do its trolling. For example if one player is trying to instruct the other player with his strategy he/she might not like it and do his own thing instead. Is that trolling? No, but then you might say what if he's throwing grenades at your troops. Whelp you got a troll. So leave the game block the player and find a new one simple as that. So quit complaining about trolling people do what they want on the internet everyone knows this. Not to mention a lot of people deserve it for worshiping cod. :P
