--> The problem with using hax in video games is that, while it provides some feeling of power, it is ultimately unable to make up for, or hide, how incompetent, powerless and insignificant you feel, and probably are, in real life.
Also, don't bother adding me with a steam account less than 10 or if you have ever had any VAC bans.

This game is awesome. It is fun, there is a lot of replay value (especially when adding Enemy Within) and it's engaging, but most importantly, it delivers feelings of ACCOMPLISHMENT when you execute a mission well. And real DISAPPOINTMENT when your beloved high ranking soldier dies. With such a potent psychological aspect to it, no wonder I give this game a high rating.

However, there are two significant downs, and I cannot ignore them. First is the price. At nearly $70 for the complete package, 5 years after release, after the sequel and its expansion are released? You would think pretty much ALL the bugs would be gone? NOPE!

There are mission-breaking bugs, and if you are playing ironman for a challenge, then you have extra-challenge in the form of bugs that will ruin turns, missions, and entire games.

Also, the UI, while being overall well-designed, also hinders good gameplay. In short: it will pan the map automatically, but allows you to click the destination WHILE it is panning. The result is that if your move is near the (invisible) auto-panning trigger zone, you will likely click just when the auto-pan starts, and the game will give you a move to the wrong tile.

So this game might have been a 10. If at that 5-year price the bugs were almost all fixed, and if the UI didn't have such a game-breaking flaw, I would have given it a 9. So it's an 8.
