that whiny death soundeffect at 0:14 is like the Wilhelm scream of video games.. I swear I've heard it in like 5 different games
You'll also notice the Doom demon scream noise in this intro movie. All these guys were working off the same public domain sound effects cd in the early 90s.
also, at -1:02. aliens just came to kill our vampires. and we greet them like this? for shame, humankind.
the wilhelm scream is nothing at all like the scream from starcraft...
right, but i thought it was, without having heard the real one to compare. that, and i heard the starcraft scream in various other media as well. so i thought one scream was the other scream because both are canned sound effects.
why am i filled with the sick urge to continue to explain my confusion.
also the "ka-WOOSH" sound from the last boss of Doom 2 launching those boxes at you.

Leaping out of the dropship with guns blazing... Did anyone ever managed to pull that off in that game without it turning into a complete bloodbath for your squad?
This intro was a blatent lie.. It led you to beleive this was going to be you kicking alien ass Doom style, an hour later later you were quietly weeping after the aliens handed you yours.
this game (and its sequel) made me antisocial and void of popularity throughout middle school. THANK YOU MICROPROSE!
This game was pretty great. Too bad it hasn't aged that well, though.
screw you, it's aged beautifully. it just needs an update, that's all.
It's aged awesomely. I can't stand most interfaces from PC games over a decade old, but X-COM is a blast.
The digitized sound is a bit choppy, maybe an IRQ or DMA conflict... Just move the jumper on the Sound Blaster and change the set blaster -setting from your autoexec.bat and we'll have another try...
One of the best games ever.
I never understood why the blond soldier is over two times as tall as the minigun guy.
My brother and I play UFO defense or TFTD each year when we visit our parents for Christmas. I have yet to find another game which blends so many elements together as well. Forget next-gen consoles and their eye candy games, give me a good remake of x-com and a fallout 3 that feels like the first ones and I'll probably never see sunlight again.

Pretty much impossible to top. The replay value still holds.

People speak so highly of this game I didn't expect that the characters wore purple jumpsuits

Those jumpsuits really are quite purple.
