You almost feel bad for the folks at 2K Marin as The Bureau:XCOM Declassified
has gone through multiple gameplay iterations, a name change, several delays, a disjointed advertising campaign, and then gets released the same week as several big name games.. It's a shame because the game actually looks like a great addition to the XCOM universe as this launch trailer shows.
I'm still digging the art style of the aliens and flipping the timeline back to the 1960's works on a couple of different levels for me but at the same time it's hard to ignore the fact that it's going out the same week as Saints Row IV
, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist
, and Disney Infinity.
Look for our review in the near future.
