Original X-Com Creator Calls XCOM “Addictive and Absorbing”
Microprose and Julian Gollop originally created X-Com, but Firaxis and lead designer Jake Solomon are responsible for the latest game in series, XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Did Firaxis do X-Com justice? Gollop believes so.
Speaking with Eurogamer, Gollop said:
“I think Firaxis has done a great job… The game is addictive and absorbing, not to mention quite challenging on the classic difficulty setting.”
For Solomon, this was praise from Caesar. He said:
“That’s good, man. The guy’s a legend. It’s a weird situation. You know he’s still out there, you know he’s going to end up playing it – and you just admire the guy so much.”
Well done, Firaxis. I loved XCOM:EU.
