Easily one of the best (if not the best) in x-com series. Very deep mechanics (and you get dizzy when you learn they dumped more like 60% of ideas they had due to time pressure xD ) and great time value . We want it!
i hope this wish can come true,saw microprose games sword of samurai release here,hopefully these title will do too
Instant buy! I had so much fun with this awesome title. Bought it on Steam, would really like it to have it on GOG too.
When I was a kid and the first X-com came out, I played it for many hours in my old Amiga. Eventually I got tired of the abusive and unrealistic turn based tactics. I dreamed of a game were I could realistically move all my people in real time WITH PAUSE (and time controls). Apocalypse DELIVERED!
This game had so many original concepts. Still not sure why nobody has bothered to make a more modern, improved sequel with more features to the corporate politics and such, while it is evident that game companies struggle with finding new ideas.
ps. the soundtrack is so damn GOOOOD to.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-COM:_Apocalypse https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWKDNX_heak&hd=1 best game of the x-com series.. easy. thoe the first and second game were realy goooood!
One of my favorite games ever!! And since it's really hard to make it run properly on Windows, although not impossible with the proper Dosbox settings, I would love to have a GOG version working out of the box to enjoy!!
Apocalypse is often unfairly disconsidered when the original series is brought up. I still haven't found another game that offers near-equal functionality in both turn-based and real-time (though to be honest, Apocalypse was slightly slanted toward RT).
I know others deride X-com: Apocalypse as the camper, dafter game of the series but I think it was actually better than the original because well...I kinda liked the camper setting and it had more game play elements to it as such as the politicking (though that was undeveloped), which was something the original didn't have.
This X-Com, while quite a departure from the others, still holds a special place in my heart. It's just so much fun, played as a classic turn-based X-Com experience or a frankly hilarious Real-Time experience(give your entire squad machine guns for each hand, get into position and watch the ensuing wall of lead obliterate civilian, alien, and environment alike). There is so much more intrigue to this game-city politics, racism, class warfare....even hostile corporations all hindering your operations while aliens from another dimension attempt to destroy Man's last chance at survival in the form of a self-contained city. Even more intriguing is the fact that the game was rushed, and looking into the files one can see even more options to play the political aspect: prisons, marking important people, even kidnappings. Then, there were supposed to be multiple alien worlds. A game that never saw the developers initial goals realized, it still made for one of, if not the best X-Com experiences I've had as a lover of all things X -Com.
I still believe this one is the best of the series. I liked it a lot and gave you way more freedom than the previous ones.
For me it was one of the best turn based combat games. I would love to see it on GOG and on my Mac :)
For me its still the best turn-based tactical game i have ever played.
It has so much detailed things u can do.
Also the music is kinda uber... scary and really creepy.
I cant remember how many times i attacked the aliens with a 32 soldier platoon everyone got a machine gun... nag nag nag nag... come one brainsucker...
BRing it one guys....
I also don't understand why people didn't accept this game as much as previous two. Maybe it was little bit cheesy that aliens invaded just one town which you have to defend, but if you let that detail go - you're left with an excellent strategy game that gives you a lot of freedom: real-time/turned-based tactical missions, large number of fractions from which you can buy items/hire soldiers, freedom to invade other fractions, great number of things to research and manufacture, etc, etc . This game really deserves to be on GOG :),
Also, I've played this game through DosBox so there shouldn't be any problem with compatibility with Windows/Mac.
there was a custom scenario mode in beta version, would be cool to see it in final game
nice game. Would be nice one to play, a complete edition.
a lot of people couldn't get with this chapter of the xcom saga but i really liked it a lot - there was something very claustrophobic about the story being set entirely inside a domed city that aliens were randomly teleporting into and infesting, and the variety of building environments for squad encounters, as well as the city's different political factions, was pretty rich and rewarding.
i remember LOTS of compatibility issues, though, so good luck if you do take it on.
I have to agree with the other 2, tried to install it but it can´t play because of incomparability with my Windows.
So please put it up here :)
This would be great addition to strategy genre. (and sadly it's the only one i can't get to work from original cd) So make a gog version of it and you'll have at least one buyer ;)
This game. Oh yes, absolutely. Please, bring this to GOG!
