Default Where can I find XCOM series?

Any links where can I download or buy this game? Do I need any other program to run this game?

The-Underdogs have the first 3 X-Com games on it but if you like the style of play UFO: Aftermath and it's 2 sequels are worth looking into. Missed Aftermath but played Aftershock and Afterlight and both are fun games. Story line is good enough and when playing the third one, you come across things from the 2nd game and ties it in very well.

Theres a boxset called "X-com Collection" try amazon/ebay for it

they gave Terror from the deep/Enemy Unknown a win98 friendly installer, however none of the games in the box like modern hardware very much (dualcore is WAY beyond what they run on )

TFTD is on Steam. So is Jagged Alliance 2 if you're looking for a tactical squad command game, though JA2 on Steam is very, very buggy and they probably aren't going to fix it Valve and Strategy First have been blaming each other over the problems since Oct06 You should be able to get it from other places though (I think Strategy First has their own downloader thing?).

The brothers Gollup who worked on the XCOM games went on to make Laser Squad Nemesis which started out as an online subscription game (like WoW, et al) and apparently has had a single player campaign added to it. (The original Laser Squad was the game that became UFO: Enemy Unknown.)

(PS. There is a community effort to try and get the Steam version working.)

These games are not related to x-com but are inspired by it
