User reviews of Xenowar
With the first release of this you could only play one off turn based squad/tactical battles in X-Com style with action points and even opportunity fire. This was really good fun for genre fans but the lack of progression made it feel kind of pointless. They've just released v2 which adds a campaign mode with bases and research etc on a geoscape. So now you can shoot down the UFO's and send your troops out to kill the Aliens. X-Com fans will love it and it's good to see such a large content update.

No way to restart It is impossible to restart this game without uninstalling. LAME! Otherwise the game is ok.

Simple and good. Sure it looks simple, but it runs well and is a barebones xcom. Great pasttime.

Xcom.... streamlined! No tech trees. No having to intercept ufos and make them crash. No unit level up. No micro management. What does it have? FUN. 50 stars!

X-Com: Essence Distilled This game, owing to its simplified visual design, distills the gameplay of the original X-Com very effectively. Turn based phase controls are tight and well executed (though some of the mechanics are simplified, as units can't panic or pick up grenades, etc.). Items desperately need more in-game descriptions (took me three games to figure out what a "green" was), and the difficulty curve ramps up quickly. Overall, great game!
