    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.

    A quality demo? I hope so. This game supports gamepad mate.

    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.

    i loved the game bigtime. gamepad integration is awesome. music and atmosphere is cool. music reminds me DeusEx:HR.

    the only problem for me is buy on PC or PS3 :/

    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.

    and managing each soldier on the field isnt so complex and hard. game is not BORING you with micro management on battlefield.

    man i waited for this for years.

    24 hrs to go,its on steam!
    Gonna be epic in SP and MP,taking over those islands with resources will be so much fun,hopefully just like the original from Rainbird in 1989 i think,i must have spent around 300hrs on this game between the ST and Amiga:)
