Yeah, I think both Matrix and GamersGate are good services. The staff at both are very friendly and helpful. Thumbs up!
So, first impressions?
Solid game, very similar to X-Com - but there is nothing wrong with that, why mess with perfection.
Decent amount of startup gear, soldiers, and the like in primary base. Mission terrain seems to be somewhat varied, and also seem dependant on crash zone as well. Looking forward to base-assault missions and terror missions, but havent seen any in ~ 3mos of game play.
I would like a few more tweeks such as - ammo count by bullet instead of magazine to prevent a whole magazine dumped after firing once, input as to why I cannot add certain buildings to secondary bases (allowed only to have hangar, radar and missile defenses), and a button that lets me save AP for a shot because I hate doing the math in my head.
All in all, it is a very nice game as long as you enjoyed X-Com: EU and are not offended by a new version of the old game. Now if someone would take the best parts of UFO: AL and the best parts of UFO: ET I would never have to leave home again.
