XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition for Mac
Inspired by the X-COM: UFO Defense classic strategy video game that deals with science fiction events, XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition proposes a turn based role playing action in which you must make the best tactical decisions and gather resources to defeat the alien invaders.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition includes the basic game but also contains the Second Wave update and the Slingshot and the Elite Soldier packs. Moreover, the developers also provide access to the XCOM: Enemy Within standalone extension pack via an in-app purchase.
If you encounter issues with the XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition installation or with the update process, make sure that you are logged to your Mac with an account that has administrator privileges.
The game plot is quite familiar: a global alien invasion threatens the entire mankind so the members of the Council of Nations have decided to create an Extraterrestial Combat Unit (XCOM) as a last line of defense. You will attain the role of commander to this elite group: your job is to make tactical decisions that will win both battles and resources.
Since you are able to capture aliens alive, you can take them back to your headquarters to have them analyzed and interrogated by scientists. This way you can learn more about the alien plans and develop more effective weapons.
The news that humans have been abducted by the invedares that conduct their own tests precipitate the events so now you must also negotiate with the governments of the world to continue your funding. At the same time, you must focus on each member of your team and upgrade their abilities as their experience level increases.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition comes with a multiplayer mode which is available both online and on your local network. While in multiplayer, you can alternate between aliens and soldiers in order to create the best squads.
To sum up, XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition proposes an interesting storyline which can be experienced from the point of view of multiple characters and puts your tactical skills to the test.
