  1. Expansion pack makes the game
    by Scott Henderson, USA - Apr 14th 2017

    As others have commented, the game's main plot is virtually the same as 'Enemy Unknown'. However, I'd say if you're going to play any version, this is the one to explore. The soldier upgrades are more fun and unique and the storyline, again while similar, makes more sense overall. Running on 10.11.6, I did experience a few occasional crashes on startup. Regardless, this is a great, addictive game and well worth the price of admission.

  2. Good addition
    by GUBallboy, USA - Nov 25th 2015

  3. I don't get it
    by wobbleboxx, Germany - May 31st 2015

    After having a lot of trouble installing the game, I was quite disappointed to see that it's almost the exact same game as „enemy unknown". So to pay the same price again, was uncool. If you don't own any, get this one and skip „enemy unknown", otherwise see my comment on „ennemy unknown".

  5. Love playing the game but...
    by phil b, USA - Jan 13th 2015

    I really like the game, plays great and lots of time to enjoy. The biggest problem I have is on the ipad version. It has issues with change of height up or down running, climbing or flying when moving a member of the squad. very quirky and needs lots of help to get what I need done. Othert than that love it. Will we get a new upgrade add on?? I will wait and see.

  6. An expansion rather a whole a new game
    by eetfukouijaaa, Malaysia - Dec 15th 2014

    Adds a bunch of new stuff to the game such as Mechs, MELD and a few other things. Would be more worth it to get it discounted. Doesn't change much to the core game but XCOM is already an amazing game on its own right but Enemy Within is the icing on top!

  7. Amazing
    by Michael Rheaume, USA - Dec 1st 2014

    This is a near-perfect upgrade to a near-perfect update of an old classic. The whole experience of battling aliens in this squad-level combat game along with the base management and research higher-level strategy is just amazing. Awesome combat with super cool weapons and aliens. A must buy!

  8. Sort of fun, almost exact same game.
    by daisyborat, USA - Aug 22nd 2014

    You are basically playing the exact same game of ENEMY UNKNOWN, they jsut addid some extra stuff and extra units. I wouldnt say dont buy it, but dont plan on being wowed, and just like the first one you have ZERO ONLINE MULTIPLAYER capabilities, if you enjoyed the first one i would say this one is worth 10-15, but again dont count on it being all new. Even the new stuff they added isnt a huge differnece being that all the levels are the same and they didnt go in depth into changing it, just added a lot of surface changes.

  9. Best tactical game ever!
    by Sixth Praetorian, Switzerland - May 3rd 2014

    Feedback for the first part was obviously used the best way to make the game ideal. The maps are never repeating anymore. New aliens and new weapons. No bugs.

    The idea of Exalt is marvellous - absolutely different type of battle.

    Great game, for sure.

  10. Amazing Expansion Pack for Xcom Enemy Unknown Elite Edition
    by Gabriel388, Australia - Apr 20th 2014

    The upgrade definitely improves the Xcom experience. Makes the customization options for your squad even better. The graphics are Incredible. For sandbox mode where you are just going on missions to get more meld to customise your squad, the game really shines with this new expansion pack. A Must Get for any owner of the original game and and new purchasers of XCom Enemy Unknown Elite Edition. This Expansion makes the gameplay so much better!!!

  11. Must get for any XCOM Fans
    by Wumpus, USA - Dec 9th 2013

    XCOM: Enemy Within is an *amazing* expansion pack. Cranks up the addictiveness by several notches. New units, new tech, weapons, enemies, and best of all, highly varied maps/environments as well as unique side missions. Must get for any XCOM fans.
