Thanks guys I appreciate the info, I will go for the Complete Pack. I would have tried it this weeked but have vistors so no play time for me

Keep in mind the new XCOM is quite different from UFO:EU, and some aspect of it may be frustrating. The strategic layer for example, is no longer a strategic simulation, and more like an artificial board game where you try desperately to manage countries' panic until you get your satellite coverage up. Satellite determines income and help manage panic, and are now the most important aspect of the geoscape.

The tactical game has also significantly changed, but despite removing some staples of UFO like time units and inventory management, I think Firaxis made a damn good game and a worthy sequel. Once you beaten Enemy Within on Classic, I highly recommend you check out The Long War mod, which makes significant changes and improvements to the game. I think Enemy Within + The Long War has now replaced UFO:EU as my favorite game in the series, despite all the nostalgia I have with UFO.
Thanks for the info, I really like the original and have been replaying it on android. A change isnt a bad thing, if I want the style of the original It will always be there. I'll give the long war a shot provided I manage to beat it
