Thought some of you might like this, all the original boxes for the 3 real XCOM games :) Posted Image

All the manuals and original documents that came with them are inside as well. Pulled them out of storage to play them again after finding this site. :)

Yeah, the english ones are different. Except maybe Apoc because I dont remember that box.

I have the boxes for the first two at home in England, but im in Egypt so i cant take a pic. :(

My Apoc box is different, it looks more like the opening screen.

There are 2 different opening screens (or more) so I think you have another one. The opening screen here is exactly like the one pictured on the box (the pic posted here, not MY box...).

Really? I didn't realise they had changed that as well, my opening screen has a lot of orange colours in in, I'll c if I can get a grab. Is it just the English 1 that has changed?

Yeah these are north american boxes, or Canadian if it was localized here. I've actually seen the European version of the box for the original XCOM. I was going to buy it, at the time I thought it was a new game when I first picked it up, then I looked at the back :) It was 7 or 8 years ago now...Don't know how it got over here, I considered buying it just for having it, but I think a different game caught my eye and I bought that instead. Ah the memories.

Yeah, the email one is good.

Is that supposed to be a popper on the Apoc one? Looks bigger and meaner there. :whatwhat:
