DId you play it online against other people or just the single player? It's online that's fun! But it surely isn't a sequel to X-Com in any way.
just played it, i like the other xcoms better

It really is an excellent jewel of a game but i can't afford to buy the online play without losing a lot of money ($60 USD for 12 months or 6 months, forgot which

It lacks elements of previous LS, like equipping characters, etc.
I don't like one thing about the system - it has long processing orders pause during which nothing happens - it's a pure annoyance, because it doesn't add anything to the game - for example enemy movement in a turn based game can add to suspense (if done right), while this is just a waiting period.

Zombie: Empirical data's your only man, when formulating a research plan.
A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

It was pretty frustrating experience. Both for good and bad reasons.
1. It was probably one of the few games where I got thoroughly raped by the AI. It can retreat, flank and attack from behind. A big plus to me. That's what the AI should be like in most of tactical/strategic games.
1. OH GOD WHY??! RTS gimmicks: Medics that restore health. Hit points, no bleeding. Lots of weak weapons. Grenade launchers that fire bouncing projectiles.
3. I started single player Marine campaign. I think it took me a hour or two to play the first mission and then lose in the end. Even Laser Squad with its horrible interface played much faster than this.
4. I can't feel any sympathy towards the marines. They look too plastic and don't even have names.
5. Less brutal atmosphere than in UFO/Laser Squad, mostly because of the above and because special effects aren't as expressive as in these games.
6. The whole AI/Order processing stuff creates a big distance between me and the action. While the Hidden Movement stuff from UFO was the AI doing stuff and soldiers could start dying at any moment, the processing just serves to remind that it's a game. It kills tension and immersion for me.
