Just finished playing through XCOM on normal. At first I was considering playing on classic but the bombcast made it sound like normal was hard enough. This is my first XCOM game but I'm pretty competent at strategy games, although I wouldn't call myself an expert. Anyways, towards the back half of the game I found it pretty easy. People would die every once in a while but it was usually only rookies or lower level guys. I feel like the mode is as advertised, allowing me to complete the game pretty much unhindered, but I would have liked a little more of a challenge.
Anyone playing on class wanna tell me how much harder it is?
