Summary: Also in my second play through I selected my starting country to be Africa so I could get a 30% increase in funds from countries and my game crashed. I uninstalled and reinstalled the game but it still crashes when I select Africa as my starting country. So far Britain and US starting countries work fine.
Pros: Love the game during the first play through but now the second play through (on harder difficulty) I noticed some bugs (discussed in cons)
Cons: The multiplayer does not have a coop or comp stomp option.
Summary: I could write a highly detailed review of this game, but it simply isn't worth the time. This game is a pale shadow of the original x-com. The original, now 18 years old, offered more strategic and tactical options than this game. Yes this one may have some pretty colors, good sound, and cool little cut scenes.
Summary: This new "remake" has nothing to do with XCOM. The graphics are nice, fire looks like fire and the light in the game creates a very deep atmosphere. I also liked the rain effect in the game... it looked very nice. Strangely I had to lower the graphics settings because the game crashed after one minute of gameplay. Funny part is if you aim for enemies and 6 of your units have an accuracy of 99% and still everyone of them miss.
Summary: Kept me hooked for two hours initially. Gameplay was reminiscent of UFO:

about a minute after starting, even just sitting at the main menu. Hence the low
