UFO: Enemy Unknown. It's one of the best games I ever bought on the Amiga. I also bought Laser Squad, which was very good as well. I don't know if I realised at the time, that both were designed by the same person.

Damn tricky one, but for most hours absorbed by it, UFO:enemy Unknown (Aka Xcom).The pinncle of what had gone before it (Rebelstar,Laser squad etc) bet the forthcoming Reboot is not a ruddy patch on this timeless classic-Visual may age, but gameplay, still as amazing as ever.

Depends if we're talking single or multi-player
For single player there's little to compare with X-Com

On playtime alone it'd have to be Rebelstar! All of those games on the list own so hard.

I think I'd have to go for Rebelstar Tactical Command. Great game indeed.

A very tough one.
There was a time when I wanted to clone myself just to be able to play Laser Squad on my Amiga versus a human opponent everyday, therefore this game got my vote.

Laser Squad for me - it was amazing on every platform it was released for, a true classic.

Laser Squad v UFO Enemy Unknown is a very tough choice so I will sit on the fence and say Laser Squad for two player game and UFO for single player.......but I voted for UFO.

Did anyone other than my brother and I actually buy Laser Squad Nemesis? It's pretty darned good.

Got to be Rebelstar for its very early sandbox qualities (come on, who didn't try to beat the game while also mowing all the grass?), and for the astonishing value.

Haven't put much time into any of the others, so this gets it by default!

So hard to choose one. UFO is without doubt an excellent game and Rebelstar is a fine example of the genre, however, I'm going to have to stick with my all time fave game Laser Squad. Julian Gollop took his previous efforts to an all new level with Laser Squad and it played great on all the main gaming platforms at the time. A superb sci-fi strategy game - the expansion packs were great fun too.
