This game is great for those people who like the overall planning of the original X-com but didn't like the slow pace of the battles. It takes the same experience and replaces those tactical battles with a space fighter sim. It's definately fun but it's a bit of a departure from the rest of the series.

If you are playing on a modern system(xp-recent) then there will be a game breaking bug for this game that will prevent research from completing. THERE IS A FIX FOR THIS and it is a must if you are gonna play it on a modern machine. The thread for it is here: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1722992

I love this gam and alway have. Sadly if you are playing on a relatively new machine there will be some game killing bugs. 1) alien data jammers can't be killed. If you try to engage them they just dont show up leaving u in space chasing a radar blip that you can never catch untill u get bored and retreat. Its a pain because they shut down your research and there is nothing you can do about it. 2) pirate bases have the same bug. You can't kill them so get ready to fight suicidal pirate fighter craft every 5 minutes. Not fun. If you have an old rig picking up dust somewhere the sure buy this game and enjoy because it really is a fantastic game. But if you don't then I'd pass.
