Thanks

Cool. I enjoyed it, but it was a bit of a mess and probably should not have had the xcom name.

I thought we agreed this never happened?

THANKS - great post!!!

Can't complain for free , gonna have to create a folder in steam library just for free humble games

lol - I tried to post but was way behind by 22mins!

For anyone who doesn't have/want a Humble Store / Bundle account, my key is below (as I already had it). Please mention if you use it.

Can the CD key be used by anyone? My humble bundle is tired to my steam. Just unsure if that ties the key to it as well.

I already own the game, was thinking of letting Illusionary have it for his give aways (if he still does that).

It's all the games sites. Presumably, rather than pay-per-click for traffic, they buy games cheaply to attract visitors?

Reviews:
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Metacritic: 66% (45 critics, 6.5 from 628 users), Steam: Mixed 66% (3584 reviews)

TotalBiscuit: "I get bored of this game very easily"..."missed opportunities"

Linking your Steam account to your Humble Bundle account doesn't really do anything other than HB checking whether you already own games before you reveal keys - and it gets that wrong half the time anyway.
Even with them linked, you still have to copy and paste the key from HB to Steam, and you can just paste it into any Steam account.

XCOM 2 is generally considered to be the better game - it's got solid reviews all round, wheres The Bureau has mixed reviews and is a bit of a mess of a game. Not saying that it's not enjoyable, but XCOM 2 is certainly a better strategy game than The Bureau is a third person shooter.

Thanks for the in-depth reply.

I've not used steam in a long while and humble bundle as well (converted to console shortly after the PS4 was released ).
I had only noticed it said linked to my steam account as I was checking the cd key. I had actually forgotten I linked the two.

I love a free game. Steam collection is growing

Is this the sequel to the first xcom reboot?

No, that would be XCOM 2. This is an unconnected game by a different developer that, instead of being turn based strategy like traditional XCOM games, is a third person shooter with only some basic strategic elements to it.

I appear to own this game already, so for anyone that wants it here's a key for you. Enjoy!

For anyone that cant be arsed to log in at humble bundle: KNFB4-M986Q-R8TKC
