Want to see XCOM: Enemy Within's mechanized and genetically engineered soldiers in action on the battlescape? See how they perform against familiar and new threats in this five-minute walkthrough, narrated by lead designer Ananda Gupta.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
