Post Some Things You Should Know About The XCOM Demo

The XCOM demo arrived yesterday, and immediately, violently divided opinion. This game could only ever divide opinion, of course, being as it is a remake of one of the most revered PC games of all time, but in this instance I think it's dividing opinion for the wrong reasons. For various reasons, mostly due to its very minute amount of content (one entirely scripted mission, one on-rails tour of the base and one more too short, too-easy mission), it gives an impression of the game that isn't altogether accurate. As a result of this, comments about the demo are a warzone of disappointment. In some ways ' both good and bad ' the demo does tell a true story. In others, it's suggesting a much smaller and far more shallow game than the preview code we've been engrossed in, and for that reason I think it may have been a bit of a gaffe. Let me explain, in the form of a list.
