The Bureau: XCOM Declassified puts boots on the ground

by: Nathaniel -
XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a special title.  Not only was it fun, but it let gamers exercise their brains in ways not really seen for years on consoles.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified takes the principles from Enemy Unknown but puts you on the ground as a squad leader.  You're still issuing orders, trying to flank enemy positions, and deploying massive firepower against a multitude of aliens, you're just doing from a conventional third person perspective that allows you to fire your weapon and move like a more conventional action game.  The best of both worlds?  Perhaps.  Today's trailer shows the player taking down enemies without ever firing a shot himself.  That's a pretty good sign.

For fun, feel free to check out The Bureau: XCOM Declassified on Facebook, and then check out XCOM: Enemy Unknown if you haven't already because you should.
