SummaryThe game that makes hardcore gamers cry.
The GoodThe game is insanely challenging at all difficulty levels, has many moments where you'll need a clean pair of underwear afterwards, and combines strategic thinking with tactics. Your overall progress in the game is measured by how well you complete missions, which can make or break your game. I think what I like best about this game is that the gameplay stands the test of time; it's still a very good design after all these years.
The BadThe only complaint one might have about the game is that the game is difficult. Even on easy it is possible to lose even when you know what you are doing. On the highest difficulties, I've managed to lose in one in-game month. I've heard rumors of somebody building a mod for it that makes it even more difficult, and that's not something I wish to imagine.
