XCOM: Enemy Unknown, on the other hand, looks like it'll be one of the best games of the year.
Loathsome because of the name? All we had was a setting and a few cool monster effects. I can't fathom that being loathsome.
And I don't think going 3rd person chances that. I remember that old Freedom Fighters game from 2002 or so. 3rd person action game based on a group mechanic - you had lots of guys to command as you barreled through NYC during a Soviet takeover. It was pretty damn fun.
