I actually just bought and played through this game earlier this week. It is really good, and I really enjoyed the squad based play and insane ranged weaponry you can get. But, (there's always a but) I was disappointed for the most part in the AI, especially towards the end of the game. There were a couple missions where the enemy really pushed back, but for the most part it was incredibly passive. The last two missions felt like mop up from beginning to end. When the enemy would attack your base or strategic points, it was only a couple squads at a time, and a mimimum defensive force would take them out no problem. The enemy would keep sending these small squads that would get ripped apart, instead of sending 3 or 4 at once and overrun my position. Meanwhile, my main force is rolling through the map, picking up new territory, not facing much opposition, because the enemy spent all his money sending his guys to die one at a time. That said, I did enjoy the game, and really want to play it against an actual person, to bypass that dumb AI problem.
