XCOM: Enemy Unknown has a PC demo available now, via Steam. I’ve been playing it today and it is a decent attempt at recreating the original, while still allowing for some more modern additions. The demo features two missions, a tutorial where you essentially follow way points and prove you understand the commands you are giving, and then the real meat and gravy, a search and destroy mission in either China or USA.

I like it actually, it feels a true interpretation of the original. The soldier customisation is nice and the new base “ant farm” view is pleasing, based on the demo I think I’ll be adding this to my shopping list in  a couple of weeks, what do you think?
