Whats the deal. This story line is the exact same as the other xcom game with the exception of a few newer mods and gear. They should have at least changed the story line up some. Plus whats with all the glitches and freezes? I am sure i am not the only one who experienced this. I got tired of having to reboot my PS3 just to finish this game. I had to reboot my PS3 at least 20 times due to glitches and it lagging out and freezing. One would figure if your going to make a brand like this after the first one you would have all the issues fixed but guess not.
After being a BIG XCOM fan for years now, I'm officially disappointed and annoyed.
(1) I had to set the game to EASY just to get through some of the early levels. I know, I know, the point of XCOM is that it's a super-tough strategy game, but come on! This is ridiculous. Stupid-hard.
(2) More to point (1): when you get to the "defend the base" map, be prepared to throw your controller at the TV. You thought the early levels were hard? Be prepared to lose most of your team. That is, if you can beat this level at all. Near impossible.
(3) The game crashes constantly. Like, every other time I play. Sometimes it won't even load saved games. Sometimes it just freezes during the opposing team's turn. Save often.
