Oh, I am excited CVG. In a way others might even believe to be a bit perverse. I've been following it since it was announced and for a while the cynic in me expected it to be a bit crap but I'm currently sat here devouring my words.
The gameplay video that I watched did leave me with 3 gripes though- the size of the squad has been cut down to 6- maximum. The old Xcom games let you have about 20 soldiers or something. Can't remember the exact number.
The map the level took place on seemed a little small... I hope that's not the case in the other missions as slowly making your way around the map whilst constantly remaining on edge as you searched for something fugly to shoot was a big part of it for me.
I'm not sure if the level layouts are randomised- if not then that could make multiple playthroughs a little dull.
But I digress, I'm really looking forward to it- it'll be good to use my brain during a console game again. Last time I switched it on was for Banjo Kazooie N&B's!
