XCOM: Enemy Unknown Trailer

A new trailer is online for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is titled "casualties of war," showing off more of the action/strategy revival in development at Firaxis. Word is: "As the commander of XCOM, the lives of the world's best operatives are in your hands. Soldiers will fall, but it's up to you to recruit, train, and advance their skills and capabilities to counter the alien attack and minimize your casualties of war."

Nope, the haven't. I've played the game at Gamescom (report here: http://www.hookedgamers.com/x360/xcom_enemy_unknown/preview/article-1066.html) and liked it, but it does not play like the traditional Xcom. It's your average turn-based tactical game, somewhat similar to that (pretty good) Warhammer game on PSP.

What I don't get is that they are marketing this as some sort of action game. I can't for the life of me fathom why anyone would try to push the game into that vertical, simply because it isn't. It is offputting to fans of the Xcom franchise and while it will lure action gamers in, it will disappoint them.
