destructible environment - easily goes unnoticed as you require some heavy firepower to accomplish this and it tends to bug more often than not, so it isn't very useful. The most common way for this to bug is when a door is destroyed, making the doorway unusable for some mystical reason, often trapping your squad somewhere. I've yet to see a case where this actually opened a path for the units to move through (they can shoot through the broken wall sections, though).

The game grows increasingly unstable towards the end (even with the latest 1.2 version) with some strange issues in enemy placements, even introducing impossible scenarios at some points (enemies outside the map).

After the alien invasion, the Council of Earth successfully fought the Reticulans and moreover discovered their secret plan: to cover the Earth with "Biomass", a network of alien organic tissue that, the Reticulans hoped, would become conscious and endowed with immense psychic powers. The Reticulans who invaded the Earth are not true representatives of their kind, they are a breakaway faction that burned the bridges and chose this backwater part of space to conduct its experiments.

The Reticulans would construct a large satellite (several kilometres across) with a closed ecosystem and move the remnants of human population there. The experiment with the Biomass would go on on the surface. Then something went horribly wrong...
