Said about X-COM as an alternative
The xenonauts game wouldn't have happened if xcom hadn't happened first.
The main idea of Massive Chalice is that you are literally engaged in crossing and breeding soldiers and scientists. And that's all! Because the other aspects are extremely poorly developed. Trying to compensate this, the game artificially increases the difficulty with random events with one or another negative result. As a result, you lose advantages from a random roll of the dice rather than from your strategic decisions. And you can't prevent it.
- Turn Based Strategy
I'm always coming back to x-com for my turn based itch. Sometimes i try other games but i don't know. Xcom has the perfect mix between complexity and simplicity.
