This reboot not only retains the core concept of the original, it will also satisfy both hardcore fans of the old title as well as players new to the game. Firaxis has struck gold with this one.

No new content was added, but its good to see Capcom is providing support to even a free game like this.
[UPDATE] It looks like Steam is feeling a bit more generous for the new year. The Steam Holiday Sale, which was planned to end on January 5, has now been extended until the end of the weekend. So you have until January 7 to grab some titles.
