Poll created by Milarky


I can get to the bit with the berserker mutons on classic mode ironman, but wipe very soon after it.

it seem you can lose about 2 mission before it goes FuBar,
I've read every tip

so I'm considering downgrading to classic with saves
or normal iron man..

or should I stick with it.. Im getting further in Ironman classic each time I play but redoing all the pre laser tech missions is getting to me..
i was close last time till I misplaced a rocket in a critical terror mission

I started on classic/ironman but since the game has so many interface flaws my people tend to die because of miss-clicks or other glitches. Stopped playing then. Don't miss it as it is not a good game after all.

Otherwise classic/ironman is the way to go.

I wish there was a "none of the above" option in your poll because I find the difficulty levels on the nex XCOM to be all screwed up. Really, it has one of the worst difficult curves I have ever seen in a game! Normal is so darn easy that it puts me to sleep, and Classic is so darn hard that, as you pointed out, if you screw up just two missions, it becomes impossible to win.

I really wish Firaxis would release a difficulty fix patch because as it is now, I find the game almost unplayable. yuk

I must suck, because I don't find "Normal" all that easy.
