The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Xbox 360

An awesome concept, interesting setting and use of contrast can’t save The Bureau from technical shortcomings.

I play a lot of shooters and love sci-fi so this game was right up my alley. The combat mechanics is heavily influenced by the first Mass Effect game, which to me is only a positive thing. Being a shooter and not an RTS 'The Bureau' is somewhat more linear than 'Enemy Unknown'. However there's a nice variety of combat settings and the gameplay is a lot of fun if you like something a bit more tactical than your average TPS. It also has some RPG elements in the way you can level-up your team.

RECENT CGR COMMUNITY REVIEWS

 Einhander - PlayStation
"JRPG king Square's foray into shmup territory, and to many, a masterpiece of the genre. The fully 3D polygonal graphics were top notch for the time, with weapon's fire & explosive effects accompanying the mayhem of scrapping metal giving a sense of visceral gratification that impresses to this day. Einhänder's unique premise of literally picking up the weapons of downed enemies coupled with its militaristic war stricken atmosphere make it a quintessential experience for any shmup enthusiast." - leaon79s

 Kid Niki: Radical Ninja - NES
"Probably one of the stranger platformers for the system. Its tough as nails, but very addictive." - sherberttcat

 Batman Arkham City: Game of the Year Edition - Xbox 360
"Taking the 3D Metroidvania concept of the first game and expanding the 'castle' into a city enclosure - The next logical step up for the series. The gameplay itself is largely unaltered, being the same group-based brawler emphasizing exact timing. But a larger area = more exploration & side missions, with genuinely clever puzzles adding detective variety. The GOTY Edition is the comprehensive package of this title, and so the ideal version of this epitome of super hero game design. A Must Play." - leaon79s

 Donkey Kong Country - Game Boy Color
"Its as terrible as the SNES original is good." - sherberttcat

 Street Fighter Zero - Sega Saturn
"Even though there are much more interesting fighters on the Saturn. Street Fighter Alpha is a great pick up and won't cost you much either. If you're familiar with Street Fighter 2 then you will have no problem jumping into this one. My only complaint is the lack of characters. It seems like they could have thrown in much more and it's sad to see some characters like E. Honda, Zangief, Guile, and Dhalsim not make an appearance. Over all its a great fighter on the Saturn with short load times" - Truxton4life
