Unofrtunately the limitations of the graphics in UFO Defence meant that either they were in your line of vision or not (or they popped out during their turn).
Wouldn't it be scarier if, during your turn, you could switch view to the selected team member, and see via first person, through their eyes.
Imagine switching to first person mode and seeing the silhouette of an alien lurking in the darkness...
Its that element of surprise and fear that the "enemy unknown" is all about.
I would like to experience that "edge of seat" element in Xenocide, not just from the chilling looping sound track.
Along similar lines, wouldn't it be even freakier if you heard the clickings and pops of aliens in your vicinity without knowing where they are...(go watch the 2002 film "Signs" to know what I am referring to)...imagine hearing their footsteps running past you...you in a room...you don't know where they are, what they are...do they know that you are there?
You know they are there...but you don't know where...
Create the atmosphere guys!!! Create fear of alien scum! Scare us to death with them freaky nasty alien sons of bitches!!
