It is the year 2084. You control a secret organization charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your soldiers, and lead them to victory in turn-based tactical combat.
Everything is so solid and addicting. However, there are a few issues. First, the only big thing I have: no destructibility. Tiles are indestructible.
Then I have a few bugbearers, like the fact that if you take a wounded soldier on a mission and use a medikit on him like 3 times he's just suddenly dandy. And then there's more about weapon ranges and that sort of thing, but why spend time rambling when I could be playing the game!
Altought the graphics is a bit spritey, the gameplay is as deep as ever. A bit too easy compared to the old TFTD Times, its fun to hunt aliens down and kill 'em.
The Techtree needs a bit overwork, since its too easy to stall in the early game and build up into the overpowered GDF late game.
The models are few but nice. I love it. Will write more as i went later in the game.
First time I play this one was a few years ago, just to see how it work in Linux... Work great, the game wasnt so fun anyway...
I just reistalled, WOW, this feels almost like UFO!!!!, men, I wont give them a 10 just because I want to keep them improving it, jeje!!!!
Great game, really fun!!!
IMO this can be cosidered as one of the best and most complete Open-Source games existing at the moment.
The only thing it is missing (yet?) compared to the old "X Com"-games is destroyable environments, which is just a small downside though, as it does well offer the fun and charm of the old game in a modernized way.
