"About half of this multi-faceted game involves balancing your immediate and long-term needs against your available resources.

"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."
