I'm looking to purchase one of the xcom games but I don't know which one is the best. What would you guys recommend? I don't wanna get the whole pack because there are still a bunch of games I wanna get before the sale ends. Thanks!

First one is the better than the second, because the maps are just the right size. Second one's maps are far too big, making battles much longer than they need to be.
First one has a flaw though. All games are reset to the easiest difficulty mode, regardless of what mode you pick. Base sections, most times, won't be connected when invaded (they'll have no tunnels and be surrounded by dirt). Also the default values of armor for tanks and such, are far too low. There is a mod that fixes all of that: xcomutil
