So many times yes. If there's one thing I have in common with Ed apart from being Northern, it's how much love I have for XCOM EU. Wonderful update of a smart game that's really well realised from the original.
(Confession: I genuinely prefer it to the original too, as I never got on with the concept of Time Units.)
Its difficulty is as hard as you want to a point. It can be easier than the original, but I recommend turning on Ironman mode - it means any decisions are permanent (as it only gives you one save that overwrites every time you do anything.) - makes it so much more tense and the sense of loss greater as it's not cheapened by a reload of an earlier mistake.
