On my 2nd game that XCOM on standard Ironman it take it me around 250 ish work to finish the game (Don't quote me on that number).

You are watching: How long to beat xcom enemy unknown

I took pleasure in the game a lot, and I tho do.

At the finish of the game but is once things turned sour. I was may be to easily get to the control room v no damage, even the Sectopods were no challenge. However the Etherals chose to wreck my squad, my Volunteer was mind controlled and also everyone to be killed.

Except because that my Volunteer, who miraculously survived with half health left, reasoning defeat was inevitable I moved forward ago into the manage room for a last fight, yet I to be shocked to see that the Uber Etheral had boldly exposed itself alone.

With a 68% possibility to fight him, i took the shot and also killed him. Thus finishing the war.

Also leaving my survivor to physic press out the now dead body of his previous comrades native the control room if shouting "GO"! i think the may have gone a little insane.

Ignoring a Terror mission reasons the country being terrorized to immediately withdraw regardless of it's existing panic levels. You can't even delay-- as soon as a terror mission mr up, girlfriend either get on that damn skyranger now or shed that country. They're dubbed 'terror' goals for a reason...

You can yet jet in and immediately abort to only take the continual panic hit, if you can't field a battleworthy squad for part reason.

On topic, my cl/im operation took me ~260ish days i think. I delayed as lengthy as possible in the segment pre-alien base due to the fact that I didn't desire to hit psi troops... Ns think I had actually titan armor/plasma/firestorms by the moment I also started the alien base, then i just finished the game in the following two months :P

Also that was based upon a accuse start, i m sorry I'm relatively confident is far superior come skipping the tutorial. I could even think about it cheating!

Would friend mind elaborating top top this a bit? I've only done the indict once, ~ above my first run with a common playthrough, and also I didn't like having almost my entire very first month the research and also construction scripted because that me, not to cite being locked into either a european or phibìc American base location. Aside from a totally free satellite, what room the services of utilizing the tutorial?

Anyway, I figured out how come use heavy steam screenshots so here you go. (also what is up v the global stats. Do world cheat and also does it count that? how is the "global" 138,406.52? How can anyone gain 349,446.91 credits earned?!)

I think there's a misplaced decimal somewhere in the calculate of the people average. If you relocate the decimal suggest two areas to the left, the people average score is ~33909, when you acquired 31404.

I perfect the game at the finish of December, when a terror mission was happening in Brisbane. I want to walk for a new Year's victory, but couldn't it is in bothered with risking my squad in the terror mission and didn't desire to view a lost country either. I can have finished it a month before that, but I was holding the end to check out if I could snag a battleship.

I assumed I had actually saved my end stats, yet I assumption: v not. Ns am pretty certain I was about 260 days.

Things were going good for me, i only had 1 actual squad yet they to be tearing it up. I chose to do one much more UFO mission prior to assaulting the base, and lost my whole A team.

I struck the basic anyways through my B team, and lost them all together well. I come close to giving up because even with great tech my rookies were acquiring slaughtered.

I ended up simply pushing through, letting a couple of UFOs go while i finished plasma and titan armor. I researched a float shiv and also used him to scout ahead, saving lives. The objectives were rough however eventually sufficient guys endured each time to have a real team.

Once I had a decent crew together I attacked the base, and went ~ above to finish the game without losing one more mission.

I don't think I can have lost any much more countries though and won, so it was close.
