X-COM: UFO Defense [Humble Bundle] [Steam]

Just sign in and redeem a key, free for the next 48 hours. Never played it but it looks alright.

Game description:

X-COM: UFO Defense is provided via Steam key for Windows. For key redemption, a free Steam account is required.

You are in control of X-COM: an organization formed by the world's governments to fight the ever-increasing alien menace.

Features:

Command deadly close-combat battles

Shooting down UFOs is just the beginning: you must then lead a squad of heavily-armed soldiers across different terrains as they investigate the UFO crash site. Tackle the aliens with automatic rifles, rocket launchers, and even tanks in the struggle to retrieve useful technology, weapons or life forms.

Research and manufacture alien technologies

Successful ground assault missions will allow X-COM scientists to analyze alien items. Each new breakthrough brings you a little closer to understanding the technology and culture of the alien races. Once you have sufficient research data on the UFO's superior weapons and crafts, you'll be able to manufacture weapons of equal capability.

Develop a strategy to save the Earth

You must make every crucial decision as you combat the powerful alien forces. But you'll also need to watch the world political situation: governments may be forced into secret pacts with the aliens and then begin to reduce X-COM funding

Phew.... it's going to get hot in here! The original xcom. Great game

Brilliant! Thanks

I can't make this hot enough

This is scorchio....

Everyone should play this.

Wow - I was about to ask the price until I noticed the section this was posted in.

One of my all time favourite games and now available for free - expect a lot of heat for this

Illusionary

Everyone should play this.



True.

I have spent many hours playing this over the years.

This is one of my favourite games of all time but I think anyone new to this genre is better with the reboot games.

That's XCOM baby.

Better than the remake by far.
CR*##y graphics but awesome game.

It is asking me to link my Steam account, is that normal and safe?

Yes and yes.

This deserves a truckload of heat. The XCOM series has accounted for a large proportion of my gaming over the years, and sometimes it doesn't get better than where it all began.
If you've never played this, give it a try and sink a few hours into it.

Cheers.

I've added this comment to the deal (at least I'm seeing it, anyone else?):

Thanks OP, claimed.

Just FYI, this is the original X-Com: Enemy Uknown, it was renamed UFO Defence for the US.

Picked up one of the keys.
If they could combined the game engine from the new version with the procedural area creation and character control plus inventory of the original, that would be an epic game.

How does this play on modern PC's.
I tried my original disc version a while back and it was unplayable, as it ran so fast.

Banned

thanks op

I still play this on my Amiga CD32.

Great game

Expired!
