2K Marin's 22-minute demonstration of XCOM

2K Marin has been heavily criticized by fans of X-COM over its reboot for a number of reasons, many of which revolve around the game not being perceived as faithful to the original titles. The studio has since tweaked the game after a sizable quiet period, and today we're given a 22-minute look at the new-and-improved XCOM.

Narrative director Jordan Thomas admits that the old version of XCOM felt like "a run-and-gun affair, without a lot of focus on the command of your squad, or indeed on tactical play itself." You can see how they've addressed these complaints in this video. Personally, I'm optimistic about what's being shown off.

Of course, people are still b*tching, because that's what the Internet is skilled at. That said, it seems like there are fewer complainers this time around. Maybe.
