|But not as terrifying as Classic Difficulty Ironman mode.|
|Ahhhhh, it seemed like such a good idea.|
|Of the 12 missions completed, most of them turned out like this.|
|The council was not impressed.|

So yea, it's hard. I'm glad I had Ironman turned on or I'd still be stuck on mission five or so, desperately trying to save my squad from the Alien scum! I've re-started in Normal Ironman mode and am enjoying the game a lot more. I did fairly well for the first 5 mission or so, and then it all fell apart. Classic mode really punishes you for any mistakes. A crying baby distracted me during a mission and I lost several of my vets. The subsequent squad of rookies just wasn't up to the task and I began to lose entire teams which resulted in failed missions and increased panic. The panic levels get high quite fast on Classic mode.
|The final tally.|
In any case that is a post for another day! For now there are aliens to kill.
