Check out this video from XCOM.
This game was DOA to me originally. The re-imagining and making it FPS completely had me turned off. That said, they have made what appears to be many changes to the game play & mechanics that have many of the old turned based trappings incorporated. That has me hopeful for this game and that its going to be more than just a generic FPS Scifi shooter.
Its not true to the originals, but it is looking like its going to be a nice change of pace to the routinely linear shooting gallery shooters. I'm really intrigued by the aliens. Their designs are really unusual and different to the monster designs you often get in sci-fi games.
