Why would somebody get banned for that? There was no malicious attack or spamming behaviour. It looked like the guy was just making a quip to Shadow's comment. No dialogue was really required for the point he was making. (Even if it was slightly mocking.)
C'mon guys. We're not going to attract new posters if they just get banned for small things like that. Unless I'm missing something... But I'm of the opinion that a post can have context without content, like the one above. It was undeserving of a ban, but then again this forum has become so huge, the guy might have made an actual offense somewhere else without me knowing, so maybe I shouldn't be talking...
To keep inline with the topic...
I better do not mention then that i really liked that game... It is a very good arcade shooter, sure it has almost nothing to do with the Xcom series, but it is very playable.
I think that's what people seem to miss about things. When a game is ported to the movies, or if a sequel deviates from a predecesor's design or premise, people seem to expect things to be exactly as the counterpart dictates. Whether or not X-COM Enforcer was a good game, it shouldn't be associated with the X-COM series as a basis for it's own value. You might as well judge UFO Aftermath purely on comparison with X-COM Ufo Defense. The name is all Enforcer has.
Now... Some things one should also consider. Enforcer was not a popular game to the public in general, not just to X-COM purists. Arcade shooters may play this game, hate it, and it's impression impairs future sales because it made a bad impression to a particular target audience. It further impairs sales because the game was not taken well by X-COM players, therefore future X-COM games would become: "Blah! They buggered up Enforcer. Like hell I'm playing Alliance or Genesis." (I realize that the majority of this forum will easily contradict that with their former ambitions to play those games, but remember I'm speaking of both X-COM players and the common gamer.)
So is Enforcer a shame? No. Not in my belief. But is it bad to have the title of X-COM? Yes. Speaking on a corporate level, where sales and the interest of consumers are concerned, it should not be named X-COM. If it was taken a lot better by then general crowd, I would wager to disagree with this, but it wasn't.
I personally have not played Enforcer yet. Though I've seen tons of videos and screenshots and the like. (I saw someone play it a long time ago. Before I even knew what X-COM UFO Defense was. I was so uninterested in it back then, that I only remember that the terrain was gray. Nothing else. Probably an urban setting but I couldn't tell you.) It does not look like my style at all. So I'm lucky as hell that it was not my first impression of X-COM. Because I would not be posting here today if it were.
