XCOM: Enemy Unknown

Firaxis Games took one of its biggest recent releases to the small screen last week by making a full version of the triple-A title available on the iPad and iPhone. But this is no “lite” version or clunky mobile remake — for its mobile debut, Firaxis rebuilt the game from the ground up. The game is almost exactly like the full title that came out for consoles and PCs last fall, meaning it provides all the hours of deep game play and dramatic alien invasion action of the original title. And the title translates well to the touch platform, though getting the right camera angle or elevation can sometimes lead to unexpected results.
