    @Cdaddy

    On what level did you play UFO:Enemy unknown?

    I remember spending more time in missions than at my bases.

    Btw I don't think the MP will be like terror missions, because you can have mixed teams.

    I've never played any of XCOM's previous games so this will be my first experience. Can't wait for it now.
    It caught my attention when I heard that it was Sid Meier game. LoL I'll probably end up reading more of the background info than playing the game, love the detail in his games.

    do yourself a favor and get one of the previous xcom games and play it, those games prove gameplay means more than graphics

    You won't be missing anything, story wise, but if you like playing a brilliant game you will be missing a lot!

    No, you won't miss anything, but the original game came out in the early 90's, so the graphics by today's standard is terrible.

    I played it and loved it, but I decided I am not going to play the original again - I will rather wait for the new game. I am worried my treasured memories will be let down by the old tech, after getting used to modern, better graphics.

    And yes, I know gameplay over graphics, and I totally agree - but I want my memories to remain untainted. So bring on 12 October - I cannot WAIT!!!

    O yes, and it will have competitive MULTIPLAYER, so we can all kicks each other's butts online - WOOOHOO!!!
