If you have not played Silent Storm and expansion Sentinels, you are in for a treat.  GOG.com (Good Old Games) has finally restored one of the best overlooked games of all time.   A game Nival pretty much neglected after a couple of years.  After a few years SS was unplayable on most newer machines and video cards.  GOG has remedied this and added SS Gold to the catalog.  

If you are a fan of XCOM, Jagged Alliance and TBS in general, this is a must play.  Even if you just want to try something now.  The amazing engine holds up quite well even today.  A revived Jagged Alliance game was supposed to use this engine but the developer abandoned it or went belly up or something.

I highly recommend this game and to top it off GOG has SS Gold on sale for $4 bucks right now.

Great turned based strategy game. Reminds me of the good old days in PC gaming when games were more about thinking than just mindless shooting. The game has an awesome feel to it, a true hidden gem.
