"Be Warned - not the same publisher."
1 stars"

I've been a long time fan of the X-com / UFO series. Be warned – this is not from the same producers and franchise as that series.

In 2002, an Eastern European group got license to create this game in parallel with the main UFO series. They have only recently finished in 2007.

Unfortunately the game is still painfully 2002 graphics and technology. It's so clunky and outdated it was deeply disappointing in comparison with the other recent UFO games. The game play is on par with the early UFO version 1 or 2… released five years too late.

The UFO games have always had an excellent balance of combat tactics and strategy combined with RTS research and resource management.

I very highly recommend diving deep into the UFO Aftermath/After­shock/Afterlig­ht series… even better – get the trilogy here on Mighty Ape!

But please, avoid this ‘clone’ game. Spend your money on something worth playing.

"Not as good as UFO Enemy Unkown"
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I would have a thought that this game would have improved over UFO 17 years ago, but it would seen not. The graphics are higher res but but much the same. I had high hopes for this game. It did not live up to them.

5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As per sentence, if you like the original X-Com Enemy Unknown and Terror of the deep then this game is the one for you

Description

The year is now 2025 and on the newly colonized planet Esperanza our space devices have not just been approached by alien machines but attacked. The player controls a squad of soldiers, light and heavy support combat vehicles, robots and air units located in a base on the planet Esperanza that had been colonized by the spaceship Magalhaes in the year 2023. This squad was brought together by the Esperanza government to face a threat that comes from deep space. In case the player succeeds in averting an alien impact on Esperanza, the story will continue on the planet Earth which has been subdued by alien forces.
