So 6 (Enforcer) was released, but 5 (Alliance) is on hold?

Wheres the logic in that?

  • 3 - XCOM: Apocalypse
  • 4 - XCOM: Interceptor

Yeah, I mixed up Enforcer with Alliance. Enforcer is basically a really poor use 4 the Unreal engine, nothing like X-Com really and a VERY simular story 2 Halo. Not sure which came out 1st tho coz the graphics in Enforcer were crap.

BTW, the reason that Enforcer is 6. is coz Alliance was announced ages ago ( I remember hearing about it at least 2 years ago ). Enforcer was announced and made after ( probably in about a month by the look of it :P)

I see. Figures that they rushed the game through. Like you say, thats probably why it was so bad. Still, might be worth a play with. I mean, it is an XCOM game! :)

Enforcer really doesn't deserve the xcom label <_<

Maybe not, but it does have it, and thats enough for me to try it. I only started playing Apoc because it was XCOM 3. Admittedly, lots of people said Apoc was good, but hey Enforcer is worth a try. Then I can say ive played all the available XCOMs.

Nope, it's a PBEM xcom game (like ufo2000 for example) made by HASBRO.
