"About half of this multi-faceted game involves balancing your immediate and long-term needs against your available resources. The task is never really an easy one, and you will constantly have to make sacrifices in one area in order to achieve gains in another. Personally, I found this to be the most enjoyable and challenging aspect of UFO: Afterlight."

90% for UFO: Afterlight

February 26th, 2007

"So, whereas things could have gone badly for ALTAR in UFO #3, where things like the unvaried AI that has most foes stand in the open and take pot-shots might rob some of an ultimate sense of challenge and the constantly-sprawling interfaces may leave learning gamers feeling lost and overwhelmed, things worked out great."
