I just noticed today that it hit the shelves (maybe its been out for a while) and I did not buy it because I was not sure if it was any good. It did have the X-Com name which I liked, and the graphics look nice, gameplay and the familar geoscape looked nice as well...anyone know if its worth it?

It has been out since october.

It is in no way related to the Xcom name.
I like it, but others (mainly Xcom purists) don't.
My advice: Buy it, it is fun (especially if you get the rebalance mod.)

Anyway, can a mod/gbm move this topic to the ufo:aftermath forum? Please?

He could check out the demo first, of course. I liked it, although it started to lose appeal after a while. Maybe I'll continue sometime though, as I have had some tense moments with it. I have had frustrating moments with it as well, that's the main reason I gave up on it for now, I suppose.

I just got the rebalance mod 4.2, it fixes many of my qualms with the original game. For instance, there are more weapons, each weapon has a purpose, you can manufacture normal bullets...
