XCOM is a fantastic turn-based strategy game, filled out with base-building, resource management, and research trees. It's difficult and unforgiving - the AI will punish every mistake - but proper planning can get your squad safely through any encounter. Among the few complaints are occasional glitches and late-game balance (with levelled-up soldiers and kit, missions become almost too easy). Overall it's a fun, challenging game that any strategy fan should play. I've just finished the game for the third time, and it has now surpassed Monaco as my most-played Steam title. On to playthrough number four...
