Yup, it's really a bad game. And it is in no way related to the Xcom games, except maybe for a somewhat similar story and gameplay.

And, as Beef on the Bone said, it been out for a long time now.

PS: Xcom 3 is Xcom: Apocalypse.

Fourth is Xcom: Interceptor. :bleh:

Edit: well, I looked at your link... And the random picture it gave me doesn't give me much hope to find a good game when it will ship...

You never know, they might make the game Aftermath should have been - it had some good ideas for plot and a great setting (check out the intro movie) but the difficulty curve was flawed (as in the earlier ones, I found - particularly Apocalypse) and the squad AI was incredibly irritating. The screenies for this one had a better look to them and more variety. <shrugs> Wait for reviews, I say.

Even discounting Interceptor, this must be the 5th in the series surely?

I know of at least one more after Interceptor. It was a FPS.

Personally I stopped counting after Apocalypse...

Hmm, this UFO Aftershock dosen't look half bad. Looks quite fun. of course we're all here because we know looks are decieving hehe. The series has gone down, but im optimistic. To go by looks alone, it looks fun, but not something i'd pay more than 19.99 USD for.

UFO Aftermath and UFO Aftershock are not really part of the X-COM series. Its just that some of the former Microprose designers are working together to make some money with the game name :bleh:
As already beeing said above, Aftermath has some nice ideas but is a bad game at all.
Lets hope Aftershock will be bether.
