I'm on a very slow network right now so I can't watch the Steam videos at the moment, but I have to say that the batch of screenshots there are quite disheartening - I'm not getting a classic Xcom vibe at all. Hopefully it's just a case of the screens being picked more for their visual punch than their representation of the actual gameplay.
Check out that hour long gameplay video they released recently. (skip around if you dont want to watch the whole thing). I was pleasantly surprised by how fun it looks. While it does change the formula a bit, I think they've captured a lot of what made xcom good stuff.

Xenonauts looks like a more faithful remake, but this one looks like it will be more fun IMHO.

Good video. Looks like I'm sold on pre-ordering
