We want X-Com modernized for today's COMPUTERS, not lobotomized for today's consoles!
While I would love a faithful recreation of the original made to run Win 7 with modern day features, UI, mechanics and graphics, (Possibly Xenonauts) I disagree that Firaxis' version is not X-COM. I could be wrong but it sounds like you made up your mind before you tried it that unless this was a bit-by-bit recreation with modernized features then it would suck (or be "lobotomized") and you would hate it. There isn't a bigger fan of XCOM on the planet then myself and while I was skeptical about this game I gave it a fair shake and it easily won me over.
