Yet another franchise that has been dumbed down for the masses.

Totally agreed. some things needed to be simplified but not to this extent. example : one inventory slot to choose from various items :/ , plain bulls**t.
one drop ship , only 6 squad members , no patrolling aliens, and the list goes on and on.
Btw I have completed the game. The experience wasn't that fun as on old x-com games.

Each to his own i guess, the old xcom games where some of my favorite game of all time, but this beats them hands down, the so called "simplifacation" was more a case of streamlining and modernising it in a very clever and good way.

Just a far more fun game to play than the old ones, and every bit as hardcore as the old ones only with a lot less clutter and tedious bullshit.

Very much enjoying this. Big fan of the original too but I think I'll end up liking this one more. The hub atmosphere is worthy of a mention alone. A game you can play again and again by the looks of it

game is garbage compared to the original and the amount of things you can do, although i did like the art style of the game, but game play is more important, and this is lacking compared to the original and the amount content

Watching the multiplayer, I can see again that Frenchmen don't know how to fight ;)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: cuphead is meant to be rock hard considering it's styling. heard it's a better game to watch than play too. but it got pretty good critical response. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not bad.. but it's platforming+rogue-like and I don't think it excels in either area. It does have tight controls and a nice presentation though. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I have been playing the rogue-like GoNNER in the gaps this last week and I'm not totally in love with it but feel compelled to finish it. (1 Hour ago)
