    FINALLY got round to completing this, I absolutely love the game but it gets repetitive at the end when you're just playing the same levels over and over and the last mission is disappointingly easy.

    I played it on normal and cheated my way through, reloading when someone died, just as well because towards the end people were injured left right and centre and I'd bought no one else!.

    Anyway trying it on hard, Iron man mode now, did the first few missions well enough but then the game bullshitted me on a point blank shotgun shot 89% and killed the character I modelled on my heroic self. I hard reset the fucker.

    PS, anyone dabble in multiplayer, had a few games and enjoyed them. But the game needs an 'End game' multiplayer where you can use the characters you made to play in multiplayer, I feel sad losing my heroic team and it'd be good to see how they stack up against other peoples.

    I've really got enough games unplayed to last a year, but it's gonna be hard not to put this on top of the pile.

    Aaaarrgh. I was kind of hoping this would be a small expansion that I could do without. Seems I'm out of luck....

    There was no way I wasnt buying this, even if it got 6/10, the fact it is highly reviewed (although the review itself is awful) has me more excited for this than any next gen game. I can see my PS4 and Killzone being sat there gathering dust as I decide where my next satellite is going

    Some good additions there, however I will wait until it is in a sale on steam. If this was 10 or less I would have considered it, but I still feel there are not enough tactical options that made the original great.

    Gonna try and sell Enemy Unknown on eBay to put some cash towards Enemy Within. Unfortunately it seems thousands of other people have had the same idea.

    Why the heck hasn't it been released the same day? Silly release schedules.

    The console version comes complete with all DLC - anyone know if this is also the case with the PC edition or if we'll have to get that separately?

    Did the VPN trick which gave me a 50mb download but when I run the game I get Enemy Unknown :*(

    I did the VPN trick, got Enemy Within. And the great thing is, I can reconnect to UK, stay online and keep playing EW.


    If you clear the levels fast enough, you auto collect the meld anyway.

    I've already awarded my Korean Sniper the Eagle-eye medal which gives her more hit chance on enemies behind cover.

    Well, I used HMA VPN. I decided to temporarily move to Canada. I like Canada. So then I logged in to Steam, downloaded all the latest updates and pressed Play. I got a launcher that allowed me to select between EU or EW. I selected EW and got to start playing EW.

    I have not come across this bug yet. So can't say if it is fixed or not.

    There is a 4Gb patch on steam which stops mobs of enemies spawning into the middle of your group.

    I guess it is gone then. Not had that at all.


    Tao Shen became my first MEC Trooper. He's gonna be the badass tanky guy.

    Hit chances can still be "wtf" but the game feels 'more' so much so that it is more tolerable because you have so much more to play around with.

    Rely on him no more. Sent out my elite squad to investigate missing contact with a fishing port. Tao Shen had one of the best call signs, "Tik-Tok".

    Let's just say, non-stop spawning crysallids and a countdown to an air strike timer that will eradicate everything on the map if not made to the evac in time. I was two squares away from the zone, I already lost Dirk Meyer, had to head shot him as he became zombie. The rest were just unfortunate to not have that one more turn to make it to safety. It wasn't a sacrifice worth having, the game is on course for a game over anyway, I was just playing it until it reached that point from world panic, and try to see how long I could delay it.


    Those second wave options are awesome btw, having random base values for your rookies and when they level up makes it feel all the more personal.

    Hidden Potential? Yeah it can lead to some rather overpowered soldiers later game - an assult with better aim than a sniper? Sure. Max will guys? You bet.

    Finished another playthrough myself last week, just North America to complete now. On Impossible :(

    Didn't realise Enemy Within was a separate game - not sure I'm going to bother getting another copy for that. It *is* only hard copies yeah, no digital DLC version or am I misinformed?

    Not sure for consoles, just standalone expansion.

    But for PC, it is a downloadable DLC.

    @hiddenranbir

    Just attempted that mission now and it didn't go well. Only one of my squad made it back. Just made my first MEC trooper, well the random name generator does create some good names. Steve Martins entertainment career is going in a whole new direction

    How much are they going for? Sold mine for 11 + P&P about 3 weeks ago and there was only a dozen to choose from!

    Amazon have taken my pony - which can only mean one thing... XCom incoming!

    @Dodgymat They're going for a couple of quid each now, plus postage. Might as well just keep it at this rate!
