* BrokenBase:
** Are the graphics unacceptably bland for a 2010s game, or is their plainness and simplicity the very thing that makes them appealing compared to the flash of ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown''?
** Was it right to leave out [[spoiler:psionics]] and the Blaster Launcher?
** Mechanical fidelity to the original is one of the selling points, but some think it's ''too'' faithful, WithThisHerring and all.
* GoodBadBugs: If you leave an injured soldier in your base to recuperate, it will take many days. However, sending him or her into battle again and using a simple medikit fixes the problem instantly.
** Now no longer in play as of v22 Experimental 5, as sending troops out wounded now caps their maximum HP during the fight.
* MemeticBadass: Josh Eales. Because of an [=RNG=] bug, this name was always in the starting party of every new game. Now he even has his own Steam card.
