You do realize that carting away and hiding wreckage before investigators arrive and then not allowing them to examine what you've failed to remove by the time they do, the only thing you are accomplishing is removing the investigator's ability to prove your innocence.

Definitely as cool as it looks; if you're interested, pick it up now before the price goes back up to ass-reaming territory.
Only real downside is that single player campaign difficulty ramps up WAY too quickly. The first battle is good for those looking to whet their appetite, but the second is impossible unless you're some kind of megagenius or have serendipitously unlocked space-to-ground attack vehicles by the time you get there. If you can get off the starting planet, you stand a good chance of surviving, but you're never going to push an entrenched enemy off a planet from which you have been given the boot.
Minor nerd-nitpicking; the game ALWAYS models hohmann transfer orbits with the sun in between planets when moving units from one to another... even thought it's not always necessary. With certain solar arrangements, vehicles could transfer directly from one planet's SOI to another's, without having to slingshot past the sun. Sometimes these needlessly complex transfers take units THROUGH the planet they were aiming for in the first place.
Also, it allows you to design your own systems, but you can't playtest them... Why bother, then?
TL;DR Conclusion: Buy it while it's $16, if you've been interested in it, but it's really not done yet and still needs lots of work.
