Long War Review

XCOM: Enemy Unknown and its expansion was one of the surprise strategy game hits in the early 2010s. The special blend of perma-death, customizable units, and surprisingly addictive tactical gameplay, it grew a fanbase very quickly. However, fans of the original UFO: Enemy Unkown all the way back in the 90s found it lacking in some areas and quickly got to creating a mod. This mod has become officially recognized and supported by the creators of the base game, and is well known throughout the fanbase - Long War.

To install Long War, simply run the executable.

This mod is incredibly complex - to the point where the fanbase and the official developers refer to the base game as a "20 hour tutorial". This mod introduces concepts such as fatigue, to force you to use all your soldiers, new tech to patch up some holes in the original game's options, an overhauled air game that makes it much less RNG, an officer system to promote your favorite soldiers, and much, much more.

This mod is also extremely punishing compared to the base game. It will throw impossible missions at you that will test your ability to recognize the futility of the situation and retreat, and you are expected to lose countries at some point. However, it's noted that this game is very possible to complete without cheating - it's not unfair all the time.

This mod is well known for a great reason and adds a ton of depth to an already great game. Give Long War a download if you play XCOM at all.
