I think Classic is actually a bit too hard. Either that, or Normal is a bit too easy. The jump between Normal and Classic seems to be too much.

I'm on a great ironman classic atm, just finished the base on earth with only 1 death in the entire campaign, 2 firestorms on every continent, no panic worldwide and no members leaving the council, 2k income a month odd.

Just waiting for the other shoe to drop and my entire elite team to be flushed down the can, but I'm crossing fingers for a full victory run. =)

Agreed. The few times I've tried it, my n00bs can't see or hit anything, but manage to get knocked out from behind full cover just about every time. Makes it less than enjoyable...

And yep, an intermediate step would be most welcome.

I think the intermediate step is Classic/No ironman, that way you can go back and erase particularly bad mistakes etc if you wish.

Speaking of mistakes, I fired up xcom last night, hit scan (I'm near the end of the game so there wasn't much to do apart from waiting for contacts) and Russia promptly up and leaves the council...

At which point, I recalled that I had saved the night before prior to doing a terror mission in St Petersburg*. Being ironman, it's an unintentional mistake that has blemished my near perfect game (at that point, only one death and every month A rated), but c'est la vie... =\

Assault on the temple ship begins tonight!


*For noting, if you are going to quit prior to doing a mission, get your troops all kitted out and go to the mission zone so you're ready to play and don't manage to miss it... ; )

I am pretty sure unlaunched missions as still displayed in the mission screen as a button above the scan button. You must have missed that when you hit scan. Oh well, c'est la vie.

I have not played this one as of yet - Are the bugs still bad - Hearing about the 'game breaking' bugs kinda put me off.

I have experienced very few bugs in my time playing it. Seems pretty good to me.

I managed to get through a playthrough on 'normal' without breaking a sweat. Only issues I had were on some UFO's the camera was an absolute PITA.

Having said that, shortly after completing the game all of my saved games were corrupted... so YMMV?

Playing ironman/classic lately and it's been ok.
