Anyone here a fan of the original XCOM games, plus the one made by Firaxis?
Yep. Plus Xenonauts. And have you tried OpenXcom?
Yes I have, makes the game so much better, although it's a shame it doesn't log my hours on steam.
I played the new one (XCOM) quite heavily and really like it. Could never get into the old ones - too fiddly.
If it was the UI instead of the gameplay that you didn't like, you could try using OpenXcom. There's a bunch of optional UI settings that make it stink less of DOS.
