The game is hard. Some people said the demo is a little hand-holdy, but these comments have come from fans of the old XCOM games where there was no tutorial. Sorta like when I first played FFTactics without understanding the systems and had no idea what was going on... but tougher.
GiantBomb talked about it for for like 40 minutes on the Bombcast and they were like "this game is great, but fuck this game." Ryan said he turned the difficulty down from Normal to Easy to beat one mission, but it was still hard. There are four tiers of difficulty - Easy / Normal / Classic / Impossible. From that standpoint it may be your kind of game
