Excellent

Awesome game, same frustrations?

Really reminds me of the original X-COM except on the normal difficulty setting it is much more forgiving. The mind-control tactic is quite lopsided though, as some of my highest ranked units were hugely susceptible to it. Even the original didn't get after me as badly, and it was overall much more difficult. That aside, the upgrades seem to come just when you're having difficulties and the combat is awesome. Nothing like making the wrong moves and losing someone you developed favoritism towards. Play it on Ironman. This is a game meant to punish wrong moves, and to take away that function removes some of the game's appeal. Put it in your Q, now!

I typically don’t play turned based games; I think they are really boring. This game on the other hand i was super impressed with. Granted it is a turned based game but its fast turned based. The game is solid controls are excellent, camera worked out perfect. There are multiple upgrades per character chosen. I went 3 Snipers, 2 Support Assault rifles and a Heavy with three rockets, worked out nicely. The graphics were fine no screen tarring that I saw. I would recommend adding this game to your que. I don’t 100% think it’s a buy at least for me I feel I got the full experience the first time through.
