Really nice graphics, for a game like that. IMHO cut scenes could be made with real time engine, but cant complain about those.

Combat is a bit too streamlined for my liking. You basically don't have to move for line of fire any more, so it's a bit less chess. Also couldn't figure out different fire modes, etc.

We'll see how all those play out in final release. Promising, I'd say.

I downloaded it last night but got distracted by what I thought was a Jellybean update for my S3 phone so forgot all about it. Will try the demo tonight... if I remember.

To be fair, how many times have we screwed that up before? Streamlines the system.

I didn't like this at all. Seems far to cumbersome and slow to play having to move each unit individually and the graphics are poor for Unreal Engine 3 IMO. I've played an XCOM title before though, many years ago, but despite the visual upgrade, the game seems very dated. Clearly, it is not my type of game at all.

Its a strategy game. People seem to keep forgetting that.

Thats how xcom is,moving each unit individually,its always been this way,i dont think the graphics are bad for a game of its type i mean people still play the original(there is always atleast 1 person playing xcom on my steam friends) including myself from 1993 and those graphics are really really dated,but people dont play for the graphics they play for the immersive gameplay,each to there own,remember that there was alot of xcom clones out there years ago.

If your a civilization fan or a true fan of the original game then it could be your game,otherwise i would steer clear people,this remake has been long overdue.

Same here. Been even making my own remake of this

Can't wait for this, even though there are some doubts about game mechanics and controls.

really liked the demo whether i'll get @launch is doubtfull due to farcry3 n ass creed3 being 2 tempting..

might hang on for sale price.

seems like there's loads to it. nice that it is slow paced n tactical with loads of weapon/main base upgrades.

my overall view of the enemy choice is a bit of a negative.

anyone seen?
