Because with great power comes great responsibility.

You don't have to agree with a review to know if it's well-written, and scoring something down because it's a challenge or has perma-death is just... unfathomable.

If it is so hard that it cannot be completed, then yes, score it down, but don't play a strategy game (wonder if he went Classic Ironman) and then complain if it's a challenge. - you're not supposed to be able to breeze through an alien invasion in an afternoon.

You help to promote the series for over a decade and this is the thanks you get - yes, if anyone from 2K/Firaxis is reading it really is bugging a lot of us here that every man and his dog has had a preview copy and by now a review copy and we've not had even the faintest whiff of either by this point, despite asking through the proper channels Posted Image What do I have to do? Fly to America, get down on my knees and beg to Jake? Posted Image

EDIT: I know we're a speck on the radar (probably a crumb from the pizza of the radar operator) in comparison to the larger sites out there, but at least we know how to play a strategy game. Have you seen some of the previews out there? The only response to some of them is this:
