I love the game and own it on Steam as well. The concept is awesome and game play is great. Since the last update however, it is crashing constantly. Completely unplayable. Another thing, 2k needs to give the option to turn down the graphics. Playing a normal game creates a lot of heat on both my phone and my tablet.
Unplayable I'm playing on a Nexus 6p running stock andriod 7.1.1 and the game is Unplayable due to constant bugs and crashes. Any time I resume playing a saved game the game will crash on load. While playing through the 2nd real mission of the game one of the characters stop accepting commands and I am unable to progress with the mission.
2K has done a great job implementing XCOM from an PC game to and Android game, the game runs quite smoothly and the graphics are excellent for an Android game. The gameplay and controls are good but I don't like how the elevation works, there should be a button on the side instead as it's hard to control with the two finger swipe mechanic.
I absolute love this game! I think it is the best game you can have on a mobile, but is completely unstable! It crashes the whole time. I am playing it on a brand new Galaxy S8+ so I'm pretty sure the fault is not with the phone. Will give it a 5 star rating when an update is released to fix it.
Oh my In disbelief that this is available on my mobile. I've played one mission, and couldn't help but leave a positive review! I play it on my experia z3 and it runs flawlessly, and is easy to control as well. It's literally an excact copy of the game from other platforms, having been made controllable easily on a mobile or tablet! Genuinely happy having found this, they've done an amazing job, and I hope beyond hope they bring the new Xcom to mobile devices as well. An absolute bargain at this price as well!
Very few issues. Disappointed that you can't change armor styles like you can in the original. It's a little funky about elevation controls, and I really hope it becomes playable on my Samsung Tab 4, but it runs smooth on my Samsung J7 so it's not a big deal. All that said, this is one of the smoothest, if not the smoothest port I have seen of any game from one system to another. Really appreciate being able to play Xcom on the go, and it is very reasonably priced. Well worth the investment.
Addressed visual issues on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge with Android Nougat.
