This trailer is an interactive look at XCOM: Enemy Unknown allowing the chance to take command of a squad and see how your command decisions impact the outcome of a battle in the upcoming reimagining of the X-COM series. Word is: "This interactive demo illustrates the important choices you will make in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. In the actual game, you will control your XCOM operatives directly."

So no random maps, editor, etc. is making me go 'Hrmm' now. I think I may hold off for a little bit after launch for some more feedback.
That 16 hour / no replay value remarks seems to contradict every other reviews i've read. The kotaku review is 40 hours in, and he doesnt seem near finishing his game. I'm betting that that Ars article is rubish journalism.
