There might be. Just have to wait and see. But it did catch my eye. I have to say.
I played thru the first part of the game it wasn't really too bad, used the DX11 ver (even though the steam overlay didn't work but thats kinda w/e to me). You are right though this game is nothing like EU, if you enjoy a 3rd person squad based shooter set in the XCOM universe its not too bad of a game. If you're expecting anything similar at all to EU (asides from the permadeath thing) you're in for a lot of disappointment. The story does not connect to EU at all so don't expect any kind of answers or revelations. All in all if you treat it as a spinoff game based in the XCOM universe you might enjoy it, not sure if its worth 50 dollars yet but we'll see.

I was fine on that, its basically similar controls to most FPS games for wall hugging.
Don't blame the game for your poor peformance :P
But on a side note, the game is so far very good and yes is really a prequel to the first XCOM game (as in the original game from the 90s)
