BewareUnlike vintage XCOM, this incarnation removes player preferences. If you prefer females to be snipers and males to be heavy. Tough! Beware saying this on the Steam Forum! You find character assassins that tend to spend their lives hovering in this forum illogically calling you a sexist, misogynist and anything random with 'ist postfix.

Well done Square Enix & Crystal Dynamics. Other games I recommend are The Witcher 1 & 2.… Expand
