A new trailer for XCOM Enemy Unknown..
I am not a fan of the cartoony art direction here. My memories of X-COM are pretty much defined as world class pixelart, 80ies style superhero style character design and something pretty grim.
The old games looked like this - Mission screen:
Squad config screen:
While I understand why someone would make a “modern” interpretation of the old games, and not just try to mimic the same style or artistic tone, I don’t see anything “world class” in the new trailer. The craftsmanship is simply not comparable to the old games - and more than anything that is what I find really sad.
