XCom isn't an RPG. It's a turn based strategy game.

You do realize there is zero FPS gameplay in the game don't you?

Might want to get your eyes checked. :P Since there's no real-time shooting in this game. Like at all.

I'm coming home to wuthering, wuthering, Wuthering Heights. Heathcliff, it's me, Cathy; I've come home. I'm so cold, let me in-a-your window.

Although there are no character levels in the XCOM series .. an argument could be made due to the stats that each soldier has, which can improve, that the series consists of several SRPG's and one flight sim. I call it a strategy game serie, personally, but the argument can be made.

There IS a FPS XCOM in development somewhere .. what the status on it is, I've no idea. I'm not interested in FPS games.

Rumors are that it's being changed into a download only, third-person action game.
