    "Great Game but only if you like this type of game. I could imagine some wouldn't. Makes a nice change to play something a little different from the usual racing, sporting of just point and shoot games that are around now.

    4 Star Rating Not XCOM, but still great 3rd Person Shooter.
    By: Steven Davison "Steven", on May 13, 2014
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "First I need to say that this game has been massively misrepresented as an XCOM game. It’s set in the XCOM universe but that’s the end of it.

    Which is where the brunt of the negative reviews come from.

    That aside.

    This game is excellent.

    I will say give it enough time to get into the main story though, the first level doesn’t do the game justice. But it’s a 40 minute run to get past this “tutorial/prologue”...



    3 Star Rating The Bureau: Worth it for about ?5

    Cons:

    "XCOM is a popular RTS-RPG that has recently been revived by previous generation of consoles. It started with Enemy From Within but prior to that game's release there were trailers for The Bureau. That was many years ago and a long drawn out complicated production is generally cause for concern.

    However The Bureau is actually a decent game and very enjoyable. I got my copy for ?5 including postage with amazon. I feel like I got my money's worth, but I'd be annoyed if I paid full...

    2 Star Rating I huge missed opportunity
    By: G. Richardson, on January 12, 2014
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "To begin lets just clear up one thing. This isn't in any shape or form an investigation style game. Its a straight forward FPS. Its Mass Effect but nowhere near as good, in any way. Its story line is clunky, its characters 2 dimensional including the hero, and the ending is a quick wrap up that is so incredibly unconvincing you wonder if the writer was late home for his dinner and just wrote 'The End' half way through his script.

    I had heard rumors that originally this was going to...



    3 Star Rating Solid gameplay but unconvincing story and characters
    By: A. Whitehead "Werthead", on October 23, 2013
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "1962. The Cold War is at its height. In great secrecy, President John F. Kennedy has ordered the founding of the Bureau of Operations and Command, code-named XCOM, which will coordinate the defence of the American homeland in case of a Soviet invasion. When Earth instead falls under clandestine attack by alien forces, XCOM's brief is changed to defend against the incursions. CIA Special Agent William Carter is recruited by XCOM as the alien attacks intensify and has to lead the fight back...

    "I enjoyed the game especially the period feel , the hats and the smoking. felt a little let down as I would have like to participate in the r&d of weapons etc like in previous games.



    5 Star Rating way better than gta
    By: G Stubbs, on September 29, 2013
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "GTA is so overrated.
    Saints Row 4 is a LOT more fun and deserves the time of day.
    If you are looking for something with a bit more magic than the cookie cutter GTA, get this and you won't be disappointed. It's clear the 1star reviews are from GTA fanboys.



    3 Star Rating So far So Good!

    Pros:
    Cons:

    "I loved all the XCOM/UFO games to date, and really enjoyed the remake (XCOM Enemy Unknown). So I pre-ordered The Bureau on this. The Jury is still out on The Bureau as I thought it would be the same strategic / tactical game that the others were. This is not the same, but mixes a first / 3rd person shooter with a tactical type approach. Similar to the previous games you need recruit and train (On the job) agents as they accompany you (Carter) through the missions. I am still not quite sure if I...
