Be careful what you wish for. Xenonauts is a detailed re-invention of PC classic X-Com, which was difficult in the masochistic way gamers seem to love these days.
Xenonauts also dispenses with tutorials about core game functions and mechanics. It's a complex game, and unforgiving of the slightest mistake. If that sounds appealing to you, dig in. Personally, I found it similar to those "Tough Mudder" "fun" runs. I get why some people enjoy it, but I think it's ridiculous.
As a hardcore fan of the original X-com, and a fan of Firaxis' remake, I find Xenonauts tough to enjoy. Maybe I'm spoiled with "fun" gameplay, intuitive controls, and being able to play a game without reading a Wiki for hours first. But having a starting soldier equipped with "default" gear he lacked sufficient Time Units to fire, one of my jets shot down on the first UFO, and my first squad fully wiped on 3 starting playthroughs didn't make me say "wow, this is great". It made me want to do just about anything else.
