Hi, first I want to say that I hope that XCOM: EU becomes a great success for Firaxis and we get a sequel/expansion/dlc. And I think if they'll continue to develope the XCOM series we will get TFTD.
But now I come to the point why I've created this thread.
After a long time I've started playing TFTD again, because it was always my second choices after EU. (The last time I've played it I think I was around 8 - 9 years old and now at the age of 23 I want to complete this game before the new XCOM is relaesed)
After playing it about 7 - 8 hours I was wondering what the aliens in TFTD looked like. Almost every alien was just a big creature that we already know, because it is living on earth already. I know that the autopsy from living and dead aliens explain that these creatures where manipulated by the aliens. But why are there so much of them? I mean in Enemy Unknown there was nothing you've seen before on earth (except the cliche of the sectoid) and when I see a new alien in TFTD I was like "wtf? a giant dinosaur with cannons? O_o" or "Oh a giant Jellyfish", "A giant 'fish-snail-with cannons'...okay.." and so on.
I think that is because it wasn't the 'original' XCOM developers and producers.
What do you think about the aliens in TFTD? In my opinion not everyone is bad or stupid designed, like the dinosaur with cannons , there are also cool aliens with a nice story, like the deep one.
At least I have to say that it's just another great game with some improvments compared to EU but not with the same feeling I had when I was playing the first part of the series, because of the aliens that where not fitting into the scenario for me. (but that's just my opinion ).
