Bought this game beause I enjoyed playing XCOM so much. If you liked XCOM and are wanting more squad focused, turn-based strategy then do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. The game does not flow well at all, no thanks to the poorly designed maps and an interface that leaves much to be desired. Your men get 2 'action points' per turn. However each AP is only worth about 5 feet of actual movement, combined with the narrow maps and you are left with your squad inches from each other at all times. The game has clearly been designed with close combat in mind, but when your "highly trained" soldier constantly misses enemies literally 5 feet from him it just comes off as rushed and poorly put together. Combine that with the terrible voice acting/storyline and the cutscenes where characters talk without moving anything, let alone their mouth, and you are left with a game that is not only unplayable, but not worth playing in the first place.
