I’m a big fan of the original Ufo/Xcom-Games and bought a used Xbox360 because of the first remake.
My 4 years old working laptop (Intel HD 4000 onboard chip) could run the second remake quite playable (setting graphics to the lowest possible settings + some changes in an .ini file; needed some reloads in the final mission).
Phoenix Point seems to “reinvent” some great gameplay stuff from the original games and I would love to play it.
But a big question will be, how low you will be able to go graphically in the game settings?
I don’t play modern video games and don’t care about great looking graphics. The graphics of the first XCOM remake were more than enough!
Jagges Alliance 2 is still one of the greatest strategy games though the graphics look a little dated (sadly Jagged Alliance Flashback was [as far as I can guess] only finished to approx. 85%).
I don’t know how many fans of the old games think the same way that I do - but I would love to see a low res. + poor graphics setting which allows you to play the game with all its reinvented gameplay stuff on a slow laptop as well.
So like Alice Cooper asked in his song Trash some time ago: How low can you go?
