X-COM: UFO Defense is free on Humble Bundle for a limited time. The classic DOS game from MicroProse Software, is also called UFO: Enemy Unknown.
The game is set in a sci-fi theme, and includes a combination of RPG, 4X elements along with turn-based strategical combat.
The gameplay is unique, in that you have to shoot down UFOs and then investigate the crash site of the alien craft, and battle with the surviving aliens. There are a variety of weapons and vehicles at your disposal, and you will even be able to research Alien tech which you recover, to make your own powerful weapons and use them to save the Earth.
Sure the graphics are not great now, but the game is from 1993. And the fact that X-COM: UFO Defense is one of the few games on Steam, which boast a 10/10 rating, and has an overwhelmingly positive review score, should tell you how good the game is.
