So, how many of you chaps have played or tried this ace game? I tried it back around the age of around 10 - 12, and despite the massive difficulty curve (you pretty much have to hit the floor running to get anywhere), I liked it. Couldn't get anywhere though, due to said difficulty curve. Recently, I downloaded the game for DOS and decided to give it another go. I've yet to get into a battlescape view (PROTIP: Aggressive attacks against very small craft is not recommended), but I'm still liking everything about it. At the moment, I have two 4-man teams, each comprised of one heavy gunner, one sniper, one regular soldier, and one scout. Heavy gunners have either an auto-cannon or a heavy cannon (mixture of AP, HE and I ammo), regular soldiers have grenades and rifles, snipers have rifles and scouts have pistols and a couple of grenades. All soldiers, no matter their role, will have stun rods for when the chance to grab a live alien arises. Scouts will just be used to (obviously) scout ahead and find targets for the snipers. They will take cover when aliens are spotted, but have the pistols in case they need it, and the grenades for those moments when they're necessary. Heavy gunners and regulars go together, and the snipers hang back and take aimed shots. That's probably a crap tactic, but this is bearing in mind that I'm currently stuck with the 8 initial soldiers. Obviously, I've started altering the base to force aliens to come one way to attack soldiers: two bottom hangers moved next to the upper hanger, living quarters moved down next to one of the initial bottom hangers with a live containment unit built next to it. Also, a single long-range radar system is being built. Now then, what are your thoughts of the game? Any tactics and strategys to share?
