For the record, I still have my original boxed copy of UFO Defense somewhere around here. I had graduated college when that game came out, so I was with the franchise from the very beginning. Point being, I'm as big a fan as anyone. And while I would prefer another turn-based game, the reality is that X-COM was being turned into a FPS as far back as 10 years ago with X-COM: Enforcer. And it sat dormant for 10 years before 2K stepped in. So any attempt to characterize this as an attempt to drastically alter the franchise is patently false. X-COM has been dead for a long, long time. It's back. It may not be perfect, but what is? I'm glad to see X-COM finally getting some love. And I'm not going to close my mind off to the possibility of exploring this rich setting from a fresh perspective.
