X-COM: Enforcer is a pure arcade action game featuring more than 30 levels of nonstop shooting. You play as the enforcer, a humanoid robot exclusively designed to kill the hundreds of invading creatures found in each level. If you're familiar with the X-COM series--the original X-COM: UFO Defense from 1993 is widely recognized as one of the finest turn-based strategy games of all time - the simple action in X-COM: Enforcer might come as a real shock. Indeed, for die-hard fans of the X-COM strategy games, Enforcer is a travesty: It flagrantly abandons all of the suspenseful, tactical combat that made X-COM popular in the first place. In fact, aside from the "X-COM" in the title, and a generically similar premise of having to protect the earth from alien conquest, Enforcer is completely unrelated to its predecessors. This is unfortunate for X-COM fans, and actually, it's also too bad for X-COM: Enforcer. On its own terms, Enforcer is a fast-paced and rather fun shooter, though it'll prove too easy for veteran players.
If you're more experienced with action games than with strategy games, you'll be able to get into Enforcer immediately. The controls are extremely simple: You can run and jump in any direction, and you can shoot. All of this is easily accomplished using the mouse to steer and fire and the keyboard to run. Unlike in most recent shooters, you don't ever have to aim up or down in Enforcer. In the rare instances when your target isn't directly ahead of you, your character will actually aim up or down for you. Though there is an optional mouselook feature in the game, enabling it merely makes the controls more cumbersome than they are otherwise.
