Same campaign to save the world but made DRASTICALLY different with a ton of new stuff in the MECs and gene mods like super jump, new aliens, a new enemy faction (Exalt), and new maps like a farm with a barn

Childish but I lolled! 😃

Definitely getting this, will be up for some multiplayer too. Enemy Unknown is still probably the best game I've ever had on a phone.

Yep I'm giddy and excited like the child "within" lol. I'll try to familiarize myself with the new stuff first before getting into multiplayer and kick everyone's behinds...or well get mine kicked too

wow. I wished very hard for this. I'm sure the app size will be close to 2bg compressed, wich means it'll be HUGE when installed. original XCOM is 1.63bg, given that apparently the app size limit set by apple is 2bg, I wonder how well they dubbed down enemy within. I hope there's a decent number of new maps including emblematic ones such as the shipyard or the skyscraper's roof, and as it's enemy within I'm 100% sure there will be the headquarter defense map... I hope we can now costumize armors color... I hope it will not be ios8 only...

So how is this version compared to the PC? I have Enemy Unknown on my Steam backlog (which at this point I imagine I wouldn't get to until 2015). Just curious how this version holds up vs the PC.

For those that have played both, do you have a version that you prefer?

PC will be always way better.
The iOS version is cool for what it is, but the game looks and feels so MUCH better on Mac/PC.
The Mac version is +20GB just for reference

Awesome pew pew laser shots fired....

Man, talk about Sci-Fi gaming overload this week!

We get two fantastic strategy games in the forms of Battle World Kronos and XCOM........Then there is another newly released little title called Halo you may have heard about as well. Oh, and Assassins Creed is actually Sci-Fi also.

"wake me when you need me...."

In the meantime I've got work to do with Master Chief!
