Xcom worth it?

Is it similar to Valkyrie chronicles?

Very much worth it but can't say if it's like Valkyrie Chronicles but I can say Xcom is definitely worth the purcahse and one of the best games of 2012.

its turn based and its got some rpg-lite elements. thats about all it has in common to VC. If you liek turn based games in general then youll probably like it. its a great game.
Currently playing: Kotor 2 - Red Faction: Guerrilla - Sacred 2

Just started playing it on the PC and yes it's amazing. Obviously can't comment on the difference between K&M vs controller but I think the game is identical in terms of gameplay.
My last signature was modded.

Hard choice for me. .The difficulty is all over the place, and IMO has many cheap moments... Its a decent turn based game with far to much random cheap moments for me...

I'm also a sucker for punishment and refuse to play this game on anything below hard.. I have heard normal is easier but still has many cheap moments..

If you can get it for $20 I say buy it though.. I got it at $40 and it was borderline.. $20 is good price

I've not played VC, but XCOM: Enemy Unknown is excellent, pick it up ASAP.

Similar enough concept to VC, obviously quite different setting and theme.
