I dont know about this one.. it seems like the original X-Com is superior in every way except graphics and sound.

Yeah I remember being in middle skool when I first played that game. Turnbased games were soo much more challenging than what we have today. I used to remember really really hardgames when I was a kid. Homeworld II is the only game I think is worth everypenny It was hard and you were now limited with xxx amounts of units so macroing was they they key to winning instead of a bazzillion little spacecrafts

Too bad, I was really looking forward to this game.

I want to try before I buy and I don't warez. Has the demo been release to the net yet and if so where?

I bought Halo expecting nothing special and that is just what I got, nothing special. Not sure I want another game that is just... nothing special.

I love turn based and since Silent Storm is now showing a release date of next year I may buy this one to hold me over and give me my turn-based fix.

Somebody from Europe give us a good review from a gamers point of view, please. The more detailed the better. Or point me toward an honest review from a media-type website. Thanks.

if you thought halo was nothing special chances are you would absolutely hate aftermath. it's not even close to being a decent game.

I think UFO:Aftermath is great! It took me quite a while to get into it, but now it's getting better with every passing hour. But since I run a fansite for UFO:Aftermath, I suspect it's not my review you want... So let me instead point you to our review section:
http://www.ufoaftermath.co.uk/?c=Reviews&p=Reviews

As you can see, the reviews are mostly good.

But let me give you a fair warning. If you buy this game thinking that it is VERY close to X-Com, you may end up disappointed. I am having as much fun with this one as with the X-Com games, but it plays fairly different. So do yourself a favour and think of this game not as a sequel, but as a game in the same genre. And it takes a few hours to get into it.

As for a demo, I think you can expect one in a week or two, but I know nothing for sure...

With a title like "UFO:Aftermath" it invites comparison. I checked out the website a few times because I am interested in it. It states they drew inspiration from the XCom series, but that yes, it is a different game. The question that I have; is it a good game?

Demo please

XCom fans will probably be disappointed, but it doesn't seem bad so far. I'm not far in the game however, only have 4 bases right now.

The title of the review I'd submit to GameFaqs if I had 5 paragraphs to fill it with: "Pretty fun, very challenging, but extremely unrefined. X-Com 4 or Jagged Alliance 3 it ain't.

I am getting it as soon as I can get a copy here in California. I may just order it as an export. I hate waiting when I know it's already out someplace else.

Reason for picking it up? Well... I never played any of the original X-Com games. Just looked at a few recently and wouldn't play them because of the out dated look & feel. Sorry, I am jaded.

That being said I realize UFO:A is no ground breaker when it comes to graphics or game play. But I really love turn based combat games like Fallout Tactics and the recently released ToEE. So most likely I will find pleasure in killing some alien scum.

And seeing all those fairly high scores (thanks again, Slaughter) gives me some hope of finding this game very enjoyable. And from what I have read it seems to be good bet.

Besides HL2 is just a monolith on the horizon now.


Edit: Slaughter is ther any difference between the UK and US versions besides price and box art? I mean it is still the same english language version of the game right?
