Re: Xcom Enemy Unknown

just got my clock cleaned, twice.

Operation: Glass Whisper? Fortaleza, Brazil. Took a 5 person squad and lost everybody. One map corner had the alien marines, down the block 2 stickmen running point, and then the building blew up and a hoverdisc and several floating eye things came out. The attack order was merciless. Couldn't work it, not enough cover.

After a couple of tries and losing everyone I restarted and got a map with lots of low cover, a street being repaired, and all the aliens were in a nest at the end of it. This time I took a 6 person squad and lost 2 members, but felt satisfied I'd done a good job.

I could see where if someone was a completist this game would make them a nervous wreck. I've resigned myself to losing people, just not too many.
