One day I looked into a pile of old 10$ PC games at a store so I saw a game called X-Com Apocalypse and I thought "what the heck Il buy it" and I have to say its one of the best games Ive ever playd so Im woundering if any other of the X-Com games are just like X-Com 4.

Xcom Apoc is one of the last version of Xcom it was the one that implemented
new features like real time action, the other ones were turn-based and if
you read the forums many people were more addicted to version 1 and 2
(Xcom:UFO "Enemy Unknonk", and Xcom: TFTD"terror from the deep" respectively)

A real quick over view of both versions:

1) Xcom:UFO --the year 1999 the aliens become a reality to humans Xcom
"EXtraterrestrial Combat Unit" is created by the UN "i think" to
defend the earth from the advancing threart, blah,blah...... :uzzi: we kill them,:D
very good game. Xcom is disbanded since there is no need for them anymore :crying:

2) Xcom: TFTD-- the year 2039 people have forgotten about the death and
panic of the previous war "while a new force was forming". New alien ships start
appearing but this time not from outer space but from an area in earth much
more dangerous, and that is pretty much unknown to us "THE OCEAN", and guess who
they call on!!! "NO... NOT GHOSTBUSTERS" Xcom, since some people were smart
enough and didn't destroy everything, there was an experimental Xcom undersea base that
was not decommissioned "how lucky :crazy: " and from there you start your mission "Second
War as it is knonw" with the underwater threat.
By the way the game i like the most

IF any one wants to get into more details go ahead
is not nice to give the whole story so he might want to read up on it
hope you like this games
and in this site they are working on a updated version of Xcom:UFO "Xenocide" with 3D
and everything but of course because of copyright they are changing a few things jsut
to be on the safe side.
very cool idea
PS
there is a version 3 but not that many people liked it

released and also a version 6 that i think it was a first person shooter or maybe
backwards

First, Apocalypse is xcom3. Xcom4 is interceptor (space simlulator), and xcom5 is enforcer (1st-person shooter). There was a 6 and 7, called Genesis (lie ufo defense) and Alliance (1st-person shooter), respectively.

There was also email xcom, but nobody really talks about it because it was made by hasborg.

you made a mistake
interceptor is 3
apoc is 4
enforcer is 5 and alliance 6 " i am not sure about the order of these two"
but allience was never released
while enforcer was is was not accepted that well i think

Referring to the game readme.txt files on the original game CDs themselves, we see the following dates (copied and pasted):

X-COM: APOCALYPSE
Version 1.00
Readme File
24 June 1997


X-COM Interceptor Readme.TXT file.
Copyright 1998, MicroProse Software, Inc.
May 31, 1998


X-COM ENFORCER v1.0 README!
***************************
30 March 2001



I think this should clear up your confusion as to what order they were released.

Xracer: I just couldn't let it go. When I KNOW I'm right, I can't give up :)

I talked with some of the people working on Alliance about 6 months ago. The project has been put indefinitely on hold since Infogrames bought Hasbro. Infogrames has a page on their website where you can preorder the game, but the release date came and went 5 months ago. You must have seen some other game on the shelf. You could have seen the green xcom collector's edition game box that touts an Alliance preview movie that is included.

I know you didn't say it. NKVD said it. Only the first line of my last post was directed to you, Xracer.

Well if we have a user called NKVD then I guess we'll need one called OSS, and while we're @ it CIA and KGB.

Hey Micha,
did they tell you any reason other than they were bought out to stop builfing the game
i mesn it would seem logical to continue it since it looked as though it had a lot of fans???


PS. about the previous quote i though you were talkign to me
is cool
