So lots of folks talking positively about this game. From the demo, I just didn't see it, got bored even before completing the first mission where you can actually choose where to put people. The voiceovers, terrible FMV etc do not help either. Is the demo a reasonable reflection of the game?

The game is largely about the tactical battles, though the strategy meta game is equally engrossing to me. I'm kind of thinking that if those things you mentioned bothered you then you probably won't like the game, though the tactical battles get more complex and meaningful when taken as part of the long game and you get later in the game. It may grow on you though; I wasn't convinced this was going to be a true XCOM game with the demo alone myself. I bought the game and played for dozens of hours though and I now think it is a true XCOM experience.
