 Now I have to admit, this game ticks quite a lot of boxes for me. I loved the originals, I like sci fi, I love pondering tactics...and so on.

How does this one fit with you guys? The requirements are light across the board so most people can play it, but will you pick it up or is it too far removed now from what made the originals great?
