I feel that this game is not really that similar, the similarities are maybe skin deep, the basic style, turn-based tactics and aliens and all. But the gameplay in general isn't that similar, this game focuses mostly on cover and the mechanics are pretty different. It's still a good game in it's own right, but it's definitely not like a direct remake of the originals. It's interesting enough for the most part, even if quite a few mechanics work differently.
