Overwatch – got it, use it heavily when playing Hunters 2 on IOS

Satellites – I had heard this somewhere else, but haven't got a clue what they do? Why so important?

Engineers – What is so special about them?

Am I right in thinking that this isn't a massively long game that is all about multiple playthroughs on gradually increasing difficulty?

Satalites find UFO's, keep panic levels lower and give you extra money each month.

 

Engineers build things quicker and cheaper (not esp that important in the grand scheme of things)

 

A good full game without rushing might take about 40 hours (at least my full game clocked in at about that)

Not sure if it does in game Mat, but on the PC Steam tracks it. Mines sitting on 13 hours….I only started playing 2 days ago.

GOTY contender for me. Think I am about 15 hours in and just tackled Alien Base. Not rushing plot missions. Learning game mechanics on this Normal/No Ironman playthrough ready for my Classis/Ironman 2nd playthrough.

Yep, loving this game.

 

Not sure how many hours I've put into it, but I'm currently on game 29 of classic ironman and I'm finally getting a few months into the game without losing all my soldiers or financial backing.

 

I've only just fashioned some half decent armour!

 

I must say that CI is a beautiful way to play.  Pretty tough strategically from the outset and not knowing how some of the items work is an absolute joy.  The first time I took a live alien in for interrogation was incredibly tense because I also play with the alien 'hit points' off, just to make it a little more Monster Hunter-esque.

 

I can see myself having to start a few more games before I get near to the end, but I love it! thumbs-up

im currently knee deep in this game and im pleasantly surprised. first off im not very good at this type of game as im not a great multitasker. im playing this on easy and i still find it difficult. I love the whole micro management between mission and cant wait to research the next alien weapon. not keen on the big skinny overseers mind controlling my men though frown

After two weeks and 45 hours I just completed this. What a great game.

My first effort was horrific and I lost the Council after four months but I learned and my second game was successful.

I wussed out and started on Normal Ironman, Classic Ironman with most of the second wave options turned on for me next.
