Gollop on X-COM Remake

Eurogamer.net talks with XCOM: Enemy Unknown producer Jake Solomon and original X-COM designer Julian Gollop about how the new installment in the series lives up to its forebears. "I think Firaxis has done a great job," Julian Gollop told them. "The game is addictive and absorbing, not to mention quite challenging on the classic difficulty setting."

The new X-COM is a dream come true for me. It's not entirely the full X-COM experience because it lacks some pretty significant staples of the series (I absolutely LOVED the base invasions - they were gloriously challenging and tense and I miss them terribly) but what is there is exquisite. I was a major skeptic about this game but a few regulars pushed me into buying it (thanks djLith!) and I absolutely loved it. The enemy re-designs are across-the-board fantastic, and I am a convert of the new 2-action-per-turn system, even though when announced I thought they were sacrilege (how could they remove my action points????). I can't give enough kudos to Firaxis on the job they did with this modern-day remolding of a classic franchise.
