You are the commander of X-COM; a multi-national defense force formed to defeat aliens, who threaten mankind’s very survival.

  • COMMAND DEADLY CLOSE-COMBAT BATTLES
    After shooting down UFOs you must send your finest soldiers into action against the aliens in an attempt to recover their technology, weapons or bodies!
  • RESEARCH AND MANUFACTURE ALIEN TECHNOLOGIES
    Use your scientists to analyze captured alien items and then get your engineers to copy their technology so you can fight on equal terms.
  • DEVELOP A STRATEGY TO SAVE THE EARTH
    You will not defeat the aliens simply by blasting them out of the sky. You’ll have to think carefully about your every action.  In X-COM – UFO Defense action and strategy exist side by side.

An incredible simulation that still commands players attentions to this day. Manage the ENTIRE planet, and when I mean manage, I mean you micro manage EVERYTHING. Right down to what type of rooms you want in your specific bases, even keeping track of its finances. The brain swells…

  • Personal Trivia: When I was in Maryland working for GameShark, the offices were minutes away from MicroProse’s office. My apartment was literally 2 minutes from Big Games Studios, creators of another awesome simulation game; Rise of Nations. No matter where I am, I’m surrounded by games. 🙂
  • One of the few long box games to only have one print run, with no variants.
