Looks quite ok, but since Firaxis is making this and studio still has guys working who were part of making original, this should be in quite safe hands.

That's as brief as I can get.

in XCom - Enemy Unknown, you are the leader of the organisation called X-Com, or Extra Terestial Command. A small underfunded task force that was created by various countries together in case of an alien attack. Nobody ever cared about you and your people. until the day.. THE ALIENS ATTACKED!

Now, you and your command are responsible for the defense of the planet earth against aliens, and their designs.
Starting out with just a single small base, with a couple of interceptors, a troop carrier, some green troops, and basic earth style weapons, you must find and stop the alien menace that is invading the planet.

The game has several layers of strategy and tactics in it. from the earth overview where you must deploy new bases, the setup of your bases, hiring personel and managing resources, researching new technology, both earth's latest and the technology of the aliens once you capture some of their stuff ( and live aliens! ).
The second component being the intercepting of alien ships coming to earth, shooting them down and investigating the crash sites, as well as defending cities from alien attack, using your troops on the ground in a turn based combat simulator.

Troops also gain 'experience' and bonusses to theri statistics the longer they last on the field and the more missions they do, as well as the more aliens they kill.
