    Never finished it - laptop couldn't play it so we built a PC, but then I got distracted by Witcher 3, and then uni started.... :pinch:

    Wanna get back to it though, seemed different to Enemy Unknown :holmes: How are you finding it?

    It's pretty damn hard, I've completed it on Rookie and Commander (I'm currently going through Commander/Ironman) but it's hard to tell if it's much harder than EU. One things for sure, you will come to hate those Stun Lancers, especially when they make your only Field medic unconscious :/

    I played it so much over the weekend that the cover symbols are still burnt into my retinas! The combat is pretty much the same as enemy unknown but the base building elements are definitely a lot different. You should give it another shot.

    Hope you're all good!

    I'm on my first play through, playing on Veteran, I was finding the difficulty ok until the mission I'm now stuck on in which I'm basically surrounded by a massive number of high powered enemies and half the team are my B team rookies! Not good.

    I'm with you, it's hard to say if it's harder than EU. EU was pretty manageable once you got all your satellites in the air. The focus with X2 seems to be on powering up your team as fast as you can. I'm starting to give them plasma weapons at the moment, but only my rangers have it. I've cleared one blacksite so far.

    Good luck with Ironman! I can only imagine how tough that must be!!
