I really enjoyed the base building and managing an economy. I'm glade their going in a different direction for the sequel, but I hope we see this in more games

They are not the same genre. They can not be compared

its seems commander shepard had shift to the Bureau-XCOM since there is no contract to him in Mass Effect 4

It is more realistic in a sense.....i dont know looks kinda fun you are a squad leader and command them. I get a bit of Mass effect game play from this a bit

Shaun's argument on "next-gen" at 2:10  is spot-on even if they made a joke out of it.

Does this game still has the Same-sex and civil-rights sub-plot, which is supposed to take up 90% of the story? It had something about a L G B T scientist saving the world.

---gamer.net: I commented that it sounded like XCOM was really more of a 60's period piece that happened to use aliens as a catalyst to bring out the social climate.

2K Marin: "As a narrative guy, absolutely. To both mutate and express the inner conflicts of the period."

Morgan Gray to Electric Playground: "We are definitely going to be touching on everything that we can legally do . It’s such a specific year, it’s not arbitrary. There will be historical cameos, a lot of historical reference… "

Also, they said there is no BaseBuilding or real research, and lot of DLCs. Well, that bites! :(

It will either be a great game, and a giant crowd gets on board, or it won´t, and not many people will give it a chance.

@EL_Bomberdor At first I was the same. Felt slow paced and not too sure. I then played it to the second to third "level" and realized this game has ALOT to offer! It has so much customization and thought put into the game I was amazed. You should really give a try again!

@EL_Bomberdor 

Man do it! It's so adictive. I had never felt like it either and kept pushing it away for some unknown reason. But! there's a good reason why it has such a high metascore rating.

@TigusVidiks My first impression was very poor of the game, but with the new footage they have shown I feel that this game has a very good chance of being as good as any Xcom.
