Hmm well that Total Biscuit video was good, thanks NIN. Covered everything I'd not liked in the demo but loving the game anyway.
In demo it all seemed to be one shot kills and the enemy getting the jump on you every time, which was just ass. The vid makes it look like there's more usually a move or two first - or more if throwing a sensor - plus able to dodge or absorb a shot or two.
Might pick this up in a sale, when a bit of patching has been done too. On other hand might be looking for a game, and Firaxis seem to take a while before putting their games in Steam sales - or is that just the Civ series?
