Default XCOM a good buy right now?

I'm glad it's on sale for such a great price, but with all the recent crashes from the new update, I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking about still buying it because the developers will probably fix it soon, but I just want some advice from you guys!

Thanks! It looks like an awesome game!

I'm playing on ios 7.0.3 and as long as I keep the ipad plugged in I play for hours without crashes.

(The plugged in part may be coincidence).

Buy it if you like turn based strategy. Pass it by if you don't.

Grab XCOM you have the space for it. If not, get Aliens versus Humans.

It's unplayable on my iPad 2 now. Was perfectly fine before the update and iOS 7 (I dunno which one is the culprit since I updated then about the same time)

So what if it crashes? They are obviously still supporting the game and will without a doubt address the bugs at some point. It's a console quality game (a damn good one at that) and it's half price. Now is the perfect time to get it.

Perfectly playable on my iPad 2 and iPhone 5. Both are running on iOS 7.0.2, non-jailbroken.

Xcom is in my opinion the absolute pinnacle in its genre on not just iOS, but on any platform, so, yes grab it now for cheap, grab it later at full price, grab it on iOS, on Xbox or on Playstation.

Just grab it!

I haven't had many issues with the game aside for the occasional crash, but nothing a restart of my iPad couldn't fix, often a restart of the game is enough for me.

If you're playing on an iPad 2 or Mini, there might be more frequent crashes, although your mileage may vary, as there's reports from just as many people with no serious issues playing on those devices.

No matter what, I'm sure the developers is working to fix it if it's possible at all, and the game is worth a crash here and there.
