XCom is a terrible platform for modding. If XCom actually had good modding tools, the Long War devs could probably have gotten the project done in 1/4th the time.Don't give a flying fuck about the lore or storyline but XCOM gave one of the best outright games and one of the best platforms for modding in a very long time. Consider me on the hypetrain.
I agree with gavin overall, though maybe not for the finer details. The mechanic for revealing alien positions was often too dangerous, thus resulting in an injured veteran team member. So now you either play the next mission with a handicap(rookie) or you save scum to prevent your experienced member from getting shot.Even the base game was fun as fuck. I don't know if you're a salty gamer or what but the game was great.
