Yeah, they were the new UFO games....and while not bad in themselves, they somehow failed to capture the spirit of the old ones for some reason.

I wonder if any UFO game ever will, or what we are all looking for was more a thing of times past, never to reclaimed?

I had the 1st game in the series - UFO Aftermath. It was OK-good I'd say, but it definitely wasn't on the level of X-Com. One thing to consider is that they released a pack called UFO Trilogy that had all 3 games in it, so it might be worth looking for it before you spend $ on individual games.

I played all three (UFO Aftermath, Aftershock, and Afterlight) and enjoyed 'em as much as when I was 10-years-old and playing X-Com. IMO, the UFO: Aftermath series made a very poor first impression because- with the exception of the last game - they were very buggy and, frankly, not as novel as X-Com was in its day. Still, I personally had little problems with bugs with any of the games, loved what the modders added, and just enjoyed the retro feel of the all of them: developing a 2 handed machine-pistol squad leader, using old-fashioned projectile  weapons or kitschy energy beams and needing to calculate action points or else...

I'm a fan of this sort of game; whether its UFO Extraterrestrials or UFO AI ...
