Perfect we have enough games that hold the players hand

Excellent. I found th original X-Com UFO Defense extremely tough... and loved every second of it.

My computer won't run the original, so this game will be day 1 purchase for me.

You can use a patched version ( or Dosbox and it will run fine on modern computers :)

Although I disagree about the game being hard :P

I think people will find that this game is highly replayable. PC-style games usually are.

Accustomed to 8-hour console games with almost zero replayability? PC-style games like X-COM can be replayed endlessly while never getting boring.

Ever make love to a PC?

I don't know man, this newest XCOM has me suspicious.

Did you know you can only have six soldiers on the field at any given time? I mean, I usually lose between 2-4 on a standard mission, that means this has to be easier to accomodate the limitation of only six soldiers.

It may not be game breaking but, I don't know man...I just don't know...
