iPhone X 1/5
How about add iPhone X support so the game takes up the whole screen
Big fan of xcom on PC, this is really a very smooth port and runs very well on iPad 2017/iPhone 7. Even on iPhone with reduced screen size it is very enjoyable.
Pricey but worth every cent !
Now hoping for a xcom2/WOTC port!!
It feels like the real game and is great for when you what to play xcom on the go. It is also not filled with micro transactions you buy the game and you get the full game.
Broken (edit. Fixed) 5/5
They got it working on iPhone 8’s. Appreciate the developers fixing the app.
Can’t play online every time I load up a game it completely shuts off
Needs an update 4/5
This game needs to be optimized for the iPhone 8plus!
Won’t work on iPhone 8 (update) 4/5
By Kienan T
[Update: Works now. Pretty good pc port of one of my favorite games. Good control scheme. Only frustrating thing is that at some points it doesn’t seem like the camera does what I want it to.]
I upgraded from an iPhone 5 to an 8 and was excited to get this game on my phone. The app said that it didn’t work for iOS 11 so I waited for an update to download the game.
Now I can open the game, watch the opening cinematic, and then I get frozen on the title screen and can’t start the actual game. Very unacceptable for a 2 year old game.
Awesome game 5/5
I have this game on literally every platform it is available on. I love it. Best remake of a game from the 90's ever.
They fixed it!!!! 5/5
Used to not get past home screen, don’t think it was an update to resolve but something on their end.
Now that it’s up and running I am pleased with the quality of the game and can’t recommend it enough.
Please fix 1/5

It won’t download because it says not enough space when I have 5 gb open please fix this soon I love the game though
Won’t Install 1/5
What the hell?! I love this game I really do, but when I try to install it, it eats up all my storage and tells me it can’t be installed. This is unbelievable.
iPad Pro 10.5 iOS 11.0.3. Won’t allow me to make any action or change units. If I try to go into a menu then I can’t get out of it. So a non function POS. Don’t buy this until it’s fixed. Don’t forget you can get a refund too.
Awesome game! 5/5
This is the best XCOM has ever been. I was introduced to the series when Terror from the Deep released back in the 90’s, and it has come so far since then. All the core elements are still there, but now we have flashy graphics, CG cutscenes, and voiceovers to add a much deeper level of suspense to the sci-fi/horror of XCOM. Thankfully, the combat is turn based, so there’s plenty of time to make calculated decisions from the edge of your seat. Well worth the $$.
11.0.3 update? 4/5
Recently upgraded to an iPhone 8 plus. Game locks up on title screen. 😡. On my list of favorites.
This review is of a ported game that was very amazing. As a port this exceeded expectations and honestly there is not much to complain about. The tutorial is a little buggy, but otherwise almost perfect.
Does not work with iPhone 8 Plus 1/5
As others have reported, the game does not work with the iPhone 8 Plus. Do not buy until this has been fixed.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Doesn’t work. The game loads and then when you get to the menu you can see single player multiplayer but the background is black and you can’t click on any of the options.
Freezes, can’t play 1/5
Freezes at main menu on iPhone 8. Can’t even start a game. Unplayable.
Love the game but doesn’t work on latest iPhone 8 iOS. 1/5
Game will not progress past main menu.
Will adjust the review score once I can load in.
Not phone compatible! 1/5
Loved all the PC versions of Xcom and was really looking forward to a mobile version. Game is great but only on a iPad. If you try to run it on your phone (iPhone 8 up to date OS) it’ll get to the main menu and freeze every time. Multiple users have the same problem after reading the forums at 2k and doesn’t seem to be a patch to fix soon.
Great game for tablet only for the time being.
Unclickable Main Menu 1/5
On iOS 11 with iPhone 8, you cant click on anything on the first main menu. Renders game completely unplayable. Do not purchase till patched!
Fantastic port; epic game 5/5
Great game overall. Regarding this iPad version, it’s a 1:1 experience compared to the pc version. I see nothing removed. It plays fantastic. Well worth the asking price. I delayed too long buying this worried about the port quality. Rest assured it’s fantastic.
Great Game-XCOM 5/5
Very challenging game that pushes you on each and every mission. Constant enjoyment.
Won’t even let me past the main screen. It freezes and I can’t click single player, multiplier, or anything. Running on a brand new iPhone 8 soooo...
Something is wrong - items are disappearing. 3/5
This game has always run flawlessly and has been a great conversion. However, since the recent iOS update, I see items are vanishing from my inventory. They never did before even if the soldiers died. Has that changed? I can’t tell when it’s happening, but have had to buy the same item several times because scopes and med kits just vanish.
It’s great they have updated the game for iOS 11 however IT DOESNT WORK!!! I have contacted support; sent a video( upon request) and have not heard from them since, that was 6 days ago. You should have just kept the game down until it was actually finished.
Can’t play since the update 1/5
I updated for the new iOS, the game loads, opening video etc, then at the ‘resume’ or new game screen it’s all Weird and I can’t click on anything. I’ve since reinstalled 4 times, unplayable. This is on an iPhone 8+
One of the best turned based games period 5/5
•Great combat that never lets you feel too powerful. Even when you’re late in the game and feel like you’ve “got it” there’s always something that can, and does, happen to fix that feeling. Whether it’s a surprise enemy you ran into that’s in overwatch that you didn’t expect or your soldier missed a critical shot, you can expect the game to be unrelentingly smart about causing you problems.
•Permadeath. Pretty much if someone dies they’re gone for good. You always have the fear of losing your best soldiers; who have sortied over 15 times with 50 kills that turn missions into your favor when they deploy EVERY time you send them out into harms way. That is real fear so easily built into this game.
Those are the two main pros for me about this.
•Glitches, ever so minor. Basically things like changing height differences with the camera to get a better view of things causes issues where you want to see the roof of a building but the game shows you the interior instead. Or when you want to see if your character can climb a drain pipe and move to cover with a single action point but the camera only shows you their path inside the building again. Even with that it’s just so minor it does make the game any less great
TLDR: download it if you enjoy turn based permadeath games that never stop being challenging but never stop being satisfying at the same time.
Best game on My IPad 5/5
Without a doubt the best game on my IPad. I don’t know how many times I have played it through. Dozens and it is still as good as the first time. Well worth the investment. And thanks to the developers for providing the 64 bit upgrade since I just got a new IPad and it runs great.
Top 5 5/5
The only thing I want that isn't already a part of this ludicrously amazing game, is for there to be the sound of splashing when units move through water. I'm sure I could nit-pick and find a few more. Yes, it crashes occasionally. Yes, the camera angle can affect how easily you direct movement of troops, but you can change the perspective, so that is a minor annoyance. Some of the multitude of reasons these small trifles do not detract from this gem are: strategy in a myriad of facets of the game, fantastic graphics, and the replay factor is unparalleled. Engrossing, and easily one of the best ports to iOS I have ever played.
Unable to install 1/5
iPhone 6 11.0.2 with 6.3 GB of unused data and full, stable connection to WiFi. This 3.5GB app is unable to be installed. Any help would be appreciated
Great Game! 5/5
Recommended for strategy game lovers. Although, barely anyone plays multiplayer.
Game freezes on new phones 1/5
Game freezes on the menu on 8 and 8 plus
Doesn’t work with iPhone 8 plus. 1/5
Loaded the game excited to play XCOM again. Unfortunately it does not work with the iPhone 8 plus. I have deleted and re downloaded the game three times. After each install I have reset the phone to no avail.
On top of that there’s no support to speak of on 2k’s side. They mention the app being pulled until it’s compatible with 64 bit but that was set for August 2017.
Got ripped off for $10 on a game that’s old. Save your money and don’t download this nonfunctioning game.
No sound 1/5
Great game. Don’t like playing without any working sounds on my Air 2.
Doesn’t work on an 8+ 1/5
Freezes after the intro movie and you can’t start a game.!
Fantastic game 5/5
This game is absolutely amazing. It’s actually the complete, real Xcom game you’d get on pc, not some stripped down mobile version. The touchscreen controls are really good, I almost prefer it over the pc version. So glad they updated it to work on iOS 11.
XCOM for life! 5/5
Always a big fan of the XCOM! Even have XCOM 2 and dlc on my PS4!
Good game if it works 1/5
On an iPhone 8+, this game is unplayable. The unskippable intro cards play, and when you finally get dumped to the title menu the menu does not respond to inputs.
No longer works. 1/5
Never had an issue with my iPhone 6 on iOS 9xx. Now I have a 8+ on iOS 11 and the screen stops being interactive on the main menu so I can’t resume or anything. This is after the 64 bit patch too.
iOS 11.0.2 1/5
Game does not work at all on the current iOS. This is an amazing game but needs some massive software patches. I have tried several times hard booted the phone and still am not able to play.
Nonfunctional on iPhone 8+ 1/5
The splash screens load fine, as well as the skippable intro video. Game freezes at main menu, however. Black background with unresponsive blue menu overlay. I’d really like to play this on my phone if the issue can be resolved.
New update doesn’t work in OS 11 1/5
Just bought and downloaded Enemy Within on my 8 Plus with iOS 11. I get all the way to the title screen and when I press the single player button I get nothing, no response from the screen from anything. I can double tap to skip the loading movie but can’t launch the game. I will be asking for a refund. Once another patch is put out to fix I’ll try again and if it works I’ll change my review.
Does not respond to commands iOS 11 on 8+ 1/5
By Cal Barnes
Downloaded on iPhone 8+ after opening cinematic, the start screen was completely unresponsive.
Great game! Doesn’t run on 8+ however! 5/5
Always been a massive Xcom Firaxis fan however this doesn’t seem to work on 8+ models. Tested it with other devices and only affects 8+’s. Update possible?
Great game, better app 4/5
By Revewier mikee
I was originally very disappointed by this game. The graphics were sad, the loading times were long, and it was missing some features I wanted to see. However, I recently redownloaded it and am blown away. Both on my iphone 7+ and my 2017 ipad pro (12.9) it runs VERY well. I cannot believe how quick the load times are. Also, there are some features present that I don’t remember them having, like armor tint. I am very happy with it. One thing I would like a lot is if they would incorporate keyboard support. Being able to map hotkeys for overwatch and use WASD to move the map around would be huge, as well as a keyboard interface for troop selection and things like that. I enjoy the game but being able to use my keyboard would make this just phenomenal. I understand that is unlikely but it would be nice and I would really appreciate it as a feature.
Xcom praise 5/5
By Bizel da Beast
Xcom has to be my favorite SiFi game and all of the soldier classes and the second wave options allows for great replay ability
3.5GB Brick 1/5
Downloaded and launched on iPhone 8 Plus. After the intro video it just freezes.
Won’t play 😥 1/5
I have an iPhone 8 plus with iOS 11 and XCOM will not work. The opening cinematic plays fine but as soon as it gets to the main menu it freezes. I have left it alone thinking it was slow to start but it never did anything. I have uninstalled the game and reinstalled it a couple of times and always ends up with the same thing. This really bums me out, this was my favorite 5 star game. And yes this is after they optimized the game for 64 but architecture.
Iphone 8 compatibility? 5/5
I’ve been able to play it on my iPhone 7 before upgrading, then had to wait for the 64 bit update when I upgraded... Well the update is out now and I even updated the game and tested it before I updated my phone to 11.01 and I’m still stuck at a frozen main menu. anyone else having similar issues with the game?
