    Yes. Much better than the current. I still just went in with an 8-10 man team. You need the football rocket. Forget its name. Punch a hole in the back. Instead of going down the kill corridor.

    There's a "spiritual" remake in process. But nothing compares to the microprose version.

    I remember that football rocket. Now that you mention it, I think I did adapt a strategy like what you described... eventually. Those bottlenecked hallways of death, yeah, bodies would pile up if I tried to push through. A brave push... but also stupid and unnecessary.

    I also remember when I invaded those bases, half of my time would be spent looking for that one last alien that's standing off in some corner, refusing to move. LOL

    That’s called a fatal funnel. Wait on the outside, bait the enemy and let them come to you.

    It works for Fire Emblem at least.

    The fatal funnel... that's good, I like that.

    I did try to bait the AI by trying to trigger an attack event. Usually by shooting at walls or tossing a grenade. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not.

    And the football rocket would make make smoke which blinded me, but not the aliens. You would think it would blind them too, but it didn't.

    Sometimes after blowing a hole in the back, I could then push up the fatal funnel. I tried to go in at atleast two different ways at the same time.

    As droll as it sounds, it was always some rookie or a squaddie that I commanded to run through first to use up the "reaction points."

    The “fatal funnel” is actually a real world military concept that strategists have been utilizing for millenia. There is no better way to nullify a numbers advantage.

    Found this last night. Once I got thinking about it, it’s amazing how much video game music was ripped off from this piece.

    So I ended up saving myself $500. Got Elden Ring and was loving it. But it started having serious frame loss on my PC. Which is well speced. Found it is not well optimized for the PC. So I figured I'd bite the bullet and get an Xbox.

    However, I decided to try a clean install of my Nvidia driver. Guess what? That fixed the issue.

    So I suggest when you get new drivers. Don't do a simple update. Instead do a clean update.
