Very fun, very challenging turn based strategy game. It can be VERY frustrating early on, but once you get it it is a ton of fun. The player controls a squad of between one and six human soldiers or robotic units as they hunt the aliens on the map. Other objectives dependent on the mission. Map layouts are not randomly generated, but enemy placement is.
Fog of war hides the aliens and their actions from view until the player’s soldiers are in range and have line of sight on them. Moreover enemies normally do not act at all until the squad initially comes within line of sight. Soldiers can carry items and perform special abilities.
There’s an abundance of projects to research and even though a story is present. Once you research these new technologies you then set your hulking foundries to the task of producing them.The early and mid game are satisfying difficult as you race against time to fight panic. Even just your basic attacks have a chance to miss, so performing actions as basic as firing on an enemy sectoid could go wrong, leaving your men vulnerable and possibly dead.
Finally, one can say that this is an awesome, unforgiving and well made turn based strategy.
