    Oh good, a more true XCOM experience than that FPS that's trying to appeal to the Bioshock crowd.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not dissing Bioshock. It's just all the decisions to make the "Xcom" (the FPS) one, are totally wrong.

    I'm seriously dubious about Firaxis after Civ5, but i'll be up in this like a Sectoid in a weak mind if its any good.

    Ditto for the FPS game as well. Haters gonna hate, but i'm not going to leave a game on the shelf if its good just because its only tenously related to the previous games to use a franchise name. It certainly looks more entertaining then Apocalypse, Interceptor and that other FPS that got cancelled back in the day.

    Plus theres the indie remakes and the engine reimplementation that'll probably be finishined in the next couple of years, so everybodys a winner even if these games suck.

    It's a shame no one seems to be playing this, as it's a seriously awesome game. Pretty much what I expect from a modern version of a classic.

    I hate chrysalids, their movement range is too much... by the time you spot them.. they're in range to get you :-(
