Well it is the original of the Xcom games so this forum is probably the best place to put it (if I didn't think so I would use my moderatory powers to move it!)
Anyway, looking at the results so far I'd say you put it in the right place!

Go check em out, UFO TFTD and Apocalypse all under one roof!!!

Also why not check out XCom : Colonisation over in the special projects forum. Won't kill you if you do, might kill you if you don't!

Heh, they where all good, but my choice goes to Apocalypse. Not because of my name, but of the huge technology tree, graphics and a new mode of gameplay. Oh yeah, and the difficulty too.

That was easy for me. UFO all the way. I haven't played TFTD much actually because I didn't like it the first time I tried it years back (yeah, I know I should've tried it more.. :confused:) and I don't really like Apoc. Not sure why.. probably because I didn't like the real time and it took way too long in tb (especially the slums.. :hmmm:)

I must go with UFO on this one.  Apoc is nice and i love real time but there was too much unfinished stuff and i didn't like the enemies. UFO on the other hand was well structured plus the enemy are well rounded and they are more realistic plus its easier to understand who they are and what they want. UFO has that old school feel (the feel of a well planed and organized game that doesn't seemed rushed or "overstressed") which today's games desparately need.  (Personally i hate it when computer game reviews say a new game is the "best game ever" aka Half Life, The Sims etc etc. They won't last the test of time unlike UFO which will be #1 FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I voted for UFO because I've only played UFO and Email X-COM (which I really like and play quite a bit).  Amazingly enough I've had TFTD, Apoc and Interceptor for over 2 years and I haven't even tried them once!  Never started them up.  That's because I intend to complete them in the right order and I'm only just about to finish UFO.  :confused:

Understandably I'm not eagerly awaiting  an X-COM sequel since I already have 3 in line.

I completed them all in the right order. Except of course if you count enforcer that should be completed at the same time as UFO... Which as well as being impossible is complete rubbish.
If these Enforcer robots could be built then why have I just sacrificed the lives of 9 human soldiers???

I went for UFO.

TFTD was too buggy and, I felt, limited in scope re:land missions. I didn't really dig the whole ultra futuristic world either.

Apocalypse was a big disappointment for me. In "updating" the series, the graphics, gameplay, and plot somehow ended up in the toilet. One of the things that bugged me was the way that your guys were such bad shots! Even the guys with the better stats missed too much for my liking. These are meant to be quasi-professional soldiers, and they aim worse than an average farmer's kid.

I haven't played Interceptor or Enforcer, and don't particularly care.

What is the email one like? I've never heard of it!
About 95% of people are kidding themselves. The trouble is that almost all of that 95%, by their nature, belive that they are in the other 5%. Ironically most of the 5% are worried that they may be in the 95%.

I'd totally have to say Apoc, It's got the best of all the games. It's got UFO and TFTD, but better graphics and such, it has Interceptor cause u can manual control vehicles(which I do frequently). Plus I say it's got the best strategic depth to it.


I'd also like to add that Interceptor is good for killing, the strat part isn't tht good, but flying is real fun, and the AI is done real well.  Also you can't beat multiplayer!
All the other times the aliens use their psychic powers to cut me into bite-sized pieces. The best is when the person you trust most turns around and shoots your Commander from 150 feet away inside smoke in the back of the head with his eyes closed. - Snikers
