It is clear from the moment you start playing to just throw all your resources in to satellites, and as mentioned here is just got very "by the numbers".
Being a massive fan of Apocalypse, I was quite disappointed. Still finished it, as it was enjoyable (I especially liked the streamlining achieved with the move from TU to the "two actions" mechanic) for the most part, but I certainly doubt I will ever revisit it (unlike Apocalypse which I must have finished 5 times).
The new content sounds intriguing, but if it ends up being just as shallow in the long run, I will unlikely be investing.
