I missed the original X-COM, but now I can see why it was so lauded. For a game 13 years old, the atmosphere and style is umatched. I was planning intercepts a la DEFCON and clearing houses aka Rainbow Six, all in an X-Files type atmosphere.
If old game developers want to dust off their back libraries to make a few bucks by enabling them to work on modern systems, then sign me up. To think of all of the people who never played the classics of the early days of computer gaming, releases like these are a godsend.
