Holy fucking awesome. It's glitchy at times, and crashes, and I don't care because it's so good that I just load from the last save and forget to be mad.

Just beat Ironman Classic yesterday, and started a new game this morning. There's room in the tactics for different playstyles, and I want to try some new things. I was playing a very conservative camp-the-high-ground-with-snipers-and-move-carefully style. Going to try something more aggressive and fluid, maybe some stealth? Not sure. Who cares. So much awesome.

One of the things I enjoy about this game is the way the tactical missions affect your strategic efforts, and vice versa. It feels like everything matters.
