While I liked the concept of base invasions in the original, the way the game handled inventory made it an awful experience.

"Oh, good, I've got 40 soldiers but only 6 clips, half of which are HE clips for the autocannon I started with and never bothered selling..."

While it was avoidable if you diligently sold excess guns, the base invasions tended to come during the point in the game that I was trying to rush and focus exclusively on researching Cydonia.
I prefer that to rush out satellites so everybody doesn't panic! any day.

At the moment Apocalypse is my favourite in the X-COM series. It was released in an era of single and relatively slow processors and yet it had plenty to manage and a more rounded experience.
