As the title says has anyone played it??? I have been playing it for about a week now and would have to say that it is awsome!!! It doesnt, however, say xcom in its title but im pretty sure its still an xcom game. Anyone else played or heard of this one??

Cheers

Nooo, must have move powers...

IRT topic:
Yes I have played AM, and it is great (especially with the rebalance mod), it lacks the xcom feel though. :(

And a good site for am is www.ufoaftermath.co.uk

Yeh, I've just recently acquired it too. its not too bad, but its not xcom, if you know what I mean.
Is weetbix your breakfast of choice? or do you just have it now and then?

Yes, I had played it, and personally i think it's not comparable to the old goodie X-COM series. UFO:AM seem like a shorter version of X-COM series.

Some shortfall
==========
1. No Base management
2. No funds management
3. Limited soldiers. No ranking system.
4. Only 1 chopper for tactical mission
5. No proximity granade :(
6. You can't choose where you want your base to be located
7. You can choose the weaponary type for the fighter planes against the UFO
8. Your soldier will not fire unless you told them to. Laying ambush is not helpful
9. Alien stats are much way better than your soldiers.
and many more......

However UFO:AM does have some plus point too
1. Excellent graphic
2. 3D tactical mission
3. Wide choice of weaponary for tactical mission

I would really see the remake of X-COM:EU with some enhance features and graphic.

Take a look at xenocide then. :)

Anyway, I agree that AM lacks the feel of Xcom. Actually, that is what Xenocide is going to fix! :D

Is Xenocide a remake(same but better graphics) of UFO or you based on it to create a simular game?

Xenocide Version 1.0 is going to be based on UFO but with improved graphics and multiplayer.
