Was worried about this when I first heard about it but turns out it is a fantastic integration of a board game with an app that actually adds to the game and really works to drive it forward. Just missing something at the end, beating this game is not that easy and the end graphic is a let down. Adding some kind of epic conclusion scene would take this to a 5-star app. Power drain also needs addressing, have to play plugged in.
This is an app that you download so you can play the XCOM board game by Fantasy Flight Games. Don't give the game app a bad rating because you're not paying attention. The very first line of the description tells you this. That said, the board game is a ton of fun and the app is very well implemented.
Awesome game; extremely fast paced and so very manic! Some odd comments by others though. I don't think they understand the point of the app...
Great! Well produced, the app does all the leg work and useful information is always at hand if you forget about the rules. The game itself is fun but don't expect it to be a tactical game. It's more of a resource management game... A fun one. The 5 stars is for the app and it's great design. I would give the game itself 4 stars.
Love the board game! Really nice companion app. Very user friendly interface. Love reading the negative comments from people trying to play without the board game. Ha!
Just works(TM) I like to cast the picture to my home cinema stuff for epic XCOM atmosphere!
