honestly I liked the tactics and stuff for the most part except when enemies pretty much pop out from cover because i moved my guy to their line of sight and they then pressed to use my soldier as target practice because none of my other units could kill all of them before my turn was up so my soldier dies and and he's gone with all his upgrades and since i didn't have auto save on I'll have to suck it up and that's another thing auto save isn't defaultly on however i still like all the other aspects of them game i guess i just suck at it even on easy

Totally Awesome Addictive Boring Game

This game is one of the best strategy based games to come out on a console yet. However highly addicting and the variation of simulations available are outstanding, this game needs a few perks to be a greater game. The pace of the moves between each side of the field should be a tad bit faster. Also when the opposition is performing actions I would love if there was a way to speed it up, along with not shooting from rediculous angles and still managing to hit, such as skinny aliens using posion on a VIP that is ducking behind a car from a reasonable distance. Im not trying to nitpick but the flow of the game should be more enjoyable to the user. But still a good game, not too boring but its there.

Perfect

Exactly like the original

I loved this game, and can not wait for them put out a part 2. I hope they keep it exactly like this one.

The only change I would like is to be able to "preset" my moves during my opponents turn for the online matches. I do not have 90 seconds of attention span to devote to inactivity, and I was unable to enjoy it enough to last more than 5-6 rounds.

Spoiler alert:

I would reccomend looking up the research progression before getting involved in projects and make sure that you NEVER sell weapon fragments, alloys, or elerium in the gray market. You need that all for end game gear and research. Also, alien autopsy's should be done before researching large projects as you get a bonus to research speed for completeing almost all of the autopsies.
