This is a fun game but its meant to be played on a PC with a mouse not on a console with a controller

I played it with a controller on the PC. And it was fine.

Xcom is done really well for consoles or PC. PC has the advantage of choosing an additional control setup, slightly better graphics, and mods.

Make your own call, but it's good on anything.

If you're on the fence about it there's a demo on Xbox not sure for the Ps3. Is it me or is the game pretty difficult ?

On normal, it's pretty hard at first, but if you manage your resources well, you will be stomping the enemy by the end. I played so well it actually got a little boring.

Anything above normal, however, can be ass-achingly hard. You have less money and start off with no extras. You will have to really stay on your toes, and manage things well.

I paid full price for this to support the development of more strategy titles, and am fairly satisfied. I really don't think it was quite worth $60, though. I'd say it's totally solid for 30 or less.

I'd like more options, a better ending, and a little more graphical effort for the next one though.

This almost makes up for missing those $10 deals. Almost. Thanks OP

Look around alot of PC people are saying the XBOX 360 controller works slightly better.

For those that ordered this. Just curious, did it come with the Elite Soldier Pack DLC?

I ordered from amazon, did not come with any DLC.

I brought the pc version with pre-order deal from newegg (for collection) and that comes with poster and the DLC, it's still available from amazon for $39.99.

Pity they did not offer any collector version for consoles.

Have a good read of the awesome FAQ by AtlanteanMan.

YMMV but Amazon's product description showed the elite soldier pack included as a key feature. I emailed them and got a $10 refund.
