The X-Com Complete Pack contains these games:
A fun collection, including the classic X-Com titles you know and love, and some pretty bizarre ones you've probably not heard of. In particular, Enforcer was an unexpected treat, as I didn't know there was an action-oriented X-Com title. Apocalypse has the cadence of Sim City, and for this reason, I could not immediately get into it, but I will get back to it. And Interceptor is just about the hardest game I've ever played. As for UFO Defence and Terror from the Deep, if you don't know them, here's a run-down: you control squads who perform tactical-based missions, retrieving downed alien technology to use against further threats to mankind. It's very well-made, but can be overwhelming if you're bad at tactical RPGs. For me, this is an amazing collection.
UFO: Defense and Terror From the deep are definetly games that are worth of owning buying and playing. Even tho that they are almost 20 years old games already. Even if you own the newest version X-Com: Enemy unknown those two games are still worth of playing.
And you will get three extra games in this package. Apocalypse is game worth of playing and the last two ... well it's always good to know more about world and games...
Probably my favorite squad based game comes from this pack. UFO Defense is worth the price alone in my opinion. Terror from the deep is more of the same and the rest are just a great bonus.
This pack is worth buying just for 'UFO defense' and 'Terror from the Deep', two of the greatest strategy games every made. If the other games in the pack do not live up to their legacy, well... what of it? You're still getting two AAA classics for the price of a sandwich and a coffee.
I first experienced this squad-based tactical game genre in 1994, and had enjoyed it then. The multi-level view provides a refreshing tactical approach to move and spot the environment. Going to play it through once again while waiting for the 2012 version to be out in a few weeks' time.
An excellent oldschool strategy game. Having not played it as a child and going to it from a spoiled modern gamer perspective the interface is tolerable not perfect and has its flaws. But don't let the age of the game deter you despite the outdated UI I would say this is still one of the best turn based strategy games ever.
Great collection, 3 good games, and 2 questionable ones. I wanted to get a sense of why these games were so immensily popular, and I wasn't disappointed. But I figure this will even be more great for those wanting to go down memory lane, chances are you missed a game or two, probably the bad ones and whatever flaws there are, nostaglia should fix that. The gameplay still holds up well, the graphics not so much but if you can see past that, then you will appreciate these games easily.
This collection contains all 5 games officially part of the X-Com series. The first 3 games in the series are undoubtedly classics of gaming history, and the reason why you should pick this pack up. The remaining two games are of different genres, and different quality. They are basically spin-offs with only the name in common with the first 3 games, Interceptor being a space shooter and Enforcer being a third-person shooter.
The older games run in DOSBOX meaning all 5 games are fully compatible with modern OS such as Windows 7 64-bit. Purchase with confidence.
X-Com Complete Pack has two great can't pass up games, one so-so game, and two trouble games. That sums up this pack, but even with the three not so good ones it's still worth the price just for the two that are great. The two that are great are, of course, X-Com UFO Defence and X-Com Terror from the Deep. Both great squad-based game with some sim managements. X-Com Apocalypse is a so-so real time squad-based RTS/sim type game, not bad, not great. X-Com Enforcer is a bad TPS game, which spits on the memory of x-com. X-Com Interceptor is a bad space shooter with issues on modern OSes (anything past win2k.) All and all, the first two are worth the price three times over while the others are just bonuses (be it poor ones but still.) This pack was a must buy for me.
Memories memories! I can remember being glued to my computer playing most of the X-Com series! The Enforcer was the only one i didnt play!
I gifted this pack to a friend and will buy it for myself! I worry about it playing in Win7 64bit but will find a way to play it again!
This is a wonderful value for a pairing of games that have been often imitated but never quite matched in gameplay. You'll suddenly go from a meta world mode, to base building to some of the most exciting and unpredictable direct control turn-based squad combat ever produced. All of this in just the first game of this collection. Also, for all the variety in these games, the controls are very accessible and do not devolve into endless keyboard controls, it has an amazing interface for it's time and still feels quite intuitive.
I'll also say that even though the later games in this series' collection pale in comparison, they are a nice novelty addition.
What to say... For easy 10$ you get at least 4 out of 5 EPIC GAMES... That will ALWAYS be classics. For anyone who had computer and was a constant user of such in the 90s, there isn't much to say. This one is a must!
sure the graphics might not be able to compete with todays games but there is basically no reason not to get this pack. simply put buy it.
X-Com UFO Defence came out in 1994 and its still the number one squad combat game bar none
terror from the deep,is basically x-com but underwater and is a much harder game
