Cthulhu Squadron replied to cardboardMike's topic in Xenonauts-2 General DiscussionThat is precisely what creators of new XCOM series thought, and failed at. There were no worthy clones of old UFO games until Xenonauts. Everybody who wanted to remake UFO with so called "modern standards" have achieved simple and boring products. X1 on the other hand was exactly what was so much needed - to cut thing short, a repainted original UFO. As an old fan of the original UFO games I was so disappointed in every attempt to recreate UFO Enemy Unknown including the latest XCOM series. I thought it's maybe the age, that makes me unable to get that level of immersion as in the old days, but then I've found Xenonauts, and it was like I have returned to the times when I was a teenager, so good was X1. I seriously wish that X2 was almost exactly as X1 but with a new paint.
