Possibly the last comment of 2006? i think so...
OK, this is probably one of the last comments ever written for 2006...we're only an hour away...well, enough about the new year, let's talk about X-com.
I have not picked up this game and played it since 2001, when i was 11 years old. here we are 6 years later. The whole story, is that several Species of aliens are attacking earth and causing trouble throughout the countries.
Meanwhile, you have to keep things running smoothly and smartly and keep good graces with the world's countries, building bases, planes, transports, and hiring soldiers and discovering various technologies. you've got 3 years (starting in 1999) to make a good impression and do something. but beware...if you're not good enough, the various countries might just bail on you and join the aliens. can you hold this together?
I first began playing this game when i was either 9 or 10. It was my life for a while. i loved it. Even though i sucked at it, i knew how to play and i was having various amounts of fun. the demo version is just about anywhere, but you might have better luck and possibly the real deal on Amazon.com.
It's got sweet music, Not-so-random names (I once had a guy named peter parker) and awesome gameplay. for it's MS-DOS look and graphics, i recommend this anyways.
