    I've only played for around an hour so far, but I'm pretty sure it is the whole of Enemy Unknown with all the additional stuff included.

    The uniforms are highly customizable, with the helmets and stuffs, things missing from eu.

    How do the graphics compare to the first one... Better or the same? Thanks!

    Wait is anything missing from this port to make the transition to ios? I have it on pc but thinking of uninstalling it and playing on my iPad or iphone to save 13gigs of space on my pc. I go all OCD about games that don't have all the content.

    Thanks, this is just what I was looking for. Now I need to free up space to be able to install it...

    Yahooo! And yeah - I searched google to find out if there might be something missing from Enemy Unknown if I go start straight away with Enemy Within and threads explain that it's more like a major content patch for Diablo than an actual sequel: new story subplots independent of the original story plot, new MEC unit, new upgrades for soldiers, new weapons, and new enemy units. So it's like starting a new game but with more content and customization in it! There is no need to retain nor continue playing in Enemy Unknown now that this has been released! :)

  10. That's great! Now if only the game would download..

    It's going to be a pain loading and reloading to try and get the countries/genders I want for my characters. And then getting the right class too. Took me over an hour last time just for a few units :/

    Hahaha - I also spent a fair amount of time trying to think of worthwhile and realistic names and callsigns! We are too OC! :)

    Welp...I said I wasn't gonna buy this, but look what I've gone and done. :/ I dunno, it just seems wrong to have a brand spanking new 128 GB iPhone 6 and not say "3 GB? HAH! That's nothing!". I just hope we'll be getting delta updates, rather than having to download 2 GBs time and time again.

    So did they fix the issues Enemy Unknown has? Like slow camera pan and such? How's the game holding up on iphone 5s?
     
  15. Hey well if you're gonna get "attached" to them, gotta make them lovable right? :D

    Aside from the crazy battery drain that was my only complaint. I assume they did the slow pan because they thought people needed more "precision"? I'm not too sure why they went with that.

    ==

    I have a question, does anyone know if there are helmets you can use for the mech units and when can you get them if so? This is personal preference but I am a huge fan of robots but these mechs are some of the ugliest designs I've ever seen. They all look like exaggerated body builders with tiny heads. A helmet is desperately needed (for me) to make them look normal. I just don't like their look. And since units can't change classes I don't want to have to keep staring at midget heads :)

    Short question: If I start a new game, where starts the new content? First missions seems to be exact the same as in EU ... Thanks!

    Or in my day, it would be called a "Gold" edition. Wonder how they managed to add missions with additional graphics resources and voiceovers when I had thought the Enemy Unkown already about maxed Apple's file-size limit.

    Be careful. I spent 6 bucks on it at 34mb before i realised it was just a tutorial. Add that to the game which is now out it cost me 24 bucks all up with a fairly unnecessary guide.

    Hmmmm, no option to get this discounted if we already own XCOM - EU and paid 19.99 for the thing?
