The more traditional other X-Com game is looking ten times better than what I've seen of this one. It will end up like Syndicate if they don't add some sort of squad based play.

After they announced XCOM: Enemy Unknown, this game seemed to cease to exist. I always presumed that 2k knew it wasn't going down well with the fans and hoped everybody would forget 2K ever announced.

It was actually a very shrewd marketing ploy all along! Pretend that you're screwing with everyone's childhood memories so they get up in arms and demand a return to the traditional format they remember :lol:
