It is the year 2084. You control a secret organization charged with defending Earth from a brutal alien enemy. Build up your bases, prepare your soldiers, and lead them to victory in turn-based tactical combat.
Everything is so solid and addicting. However, there are a few issues. First, the only big thing I have: no destructibility. Tiles are indestructible.
Then I have a few bugbearers, like the fact that if you take a wounded soldier on a mission and use a medikit on him like 3 times he's just suddenly dandy. And then there's more about weapon ranges and that sort of thing, but why spend time rambling when I could be playing the game!
An excellent recreation of the X-Com and UFO games, with pretty good multiplayer added. It still lacks a few features such weapons platforms and destructible buildings, and the endgame is IMHO incomplete. Other than that it is IMHO the best of the various X-Com recreations out there and best of all it is free.
One major caveat. 2.4 is heavily outdated. I strongly recommend downloading a build of the 2.5 development branch from the project website, ufoai.org , as it contains many updates improvements and bugfixes and is normally quite stable.
Altought the graphics is a bit spritey, the gameplay is as deep as ever. A bit too easy compared to the old TFTD Times, its fun to hunt aliens down and kill 'em.
The Techtree needs a bit overwork, since its too easy to stall in the early game and build up into the overpowered GDF late game.
The models are few but nice. I love it. Will write more as i went later in the game.
