They might be harder to play at first because generally the interface etc might not make much sense, but they're not brutally difficult. They do have some other features though, like base building. You shouldn't have much problems with them.

I find it very hard. Extremely.
People get one shotted all the time and I don't have idea where a shot come from. You can easily miss an alien who is in the corner but your soldier didn't look there (so alien can be next to your guy and you won't know it)
and your base can get invaded
and if you don't build it properly you are apparently screwed. i am still waiting for my first xcombase invasion
love the game. got used to the graphics and interface in an hour. give it a try. It is dosbox so works perfectly and it is cheap. (GOG does not have the first game. it has only newer ones made by different team. so i got my copy via steam)
but yeah: the game is frigging hard. no ironman mode here.

Playing NWN2 to see what difference there is if you play as a Tiefling, horns and all.
So far, the only difference is that Neeshka says, "hey, another Tiefling!"
Upon firing up NWN2 I was immediately reminded of the many things I disliked about the D&D universe. In NWN2 alone, you get to be:
so I of course set out to be a human with both demon and dragon blood, because if they want to be a Mary Sue, I will Mary Sue the fuck outta them! Also, humans are total sluts.

And in how many of those unions were we raped? I'd say at least half. Especially when it comes to those orcs, the filthy buggers.

We could be getting all sorts of Greek Diety all up in here, and yet somehow only humans seem to get the attention.
Maybe humans are just asking for it, dressing up in that adventurer gear and acting like they didn't expect this would happen...

I'd pity any developer who had to come up with unique things that could correspond to any combination of NWN2 starting conditions. The fact you can set your age means you can be a grey-haired, 500 year-old half-angel who only now is allowed to go out into the world by his foster father. Wisdom/Intelligence 18 or no, that kid is special.
And don't assume it ain't the humans doing the dicking. There's always a guy.

The games (and core books) just generally simplify the character creation by focusing on the core races. NWN2 just decided to add in a few variant races as well.
Which removes any sense of self and turns you into a huge and manipulative asshat. You are actively discouraged from doing what "you" want to do, and instead are expected to do what your companions want. And considering all the companions in DA2 are meant to be tragic characters, well, yeah...
I greatly preferred the ME-approach where your companions are generally cool with what you do (they might express distaste, but they won't get pissy) outside of their personal quests. Which makes sense.

half-human/half-couches roaming the lands is because there aren't any sentient couches.
The difference in Mass Effect is that everybody has a massive case of Hero Worship when it comes to you.

I wanna be a half-halfling.Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

Although, DA2 did do better than DAO by having negative opinions strengthen the characters too, but that still just encourages you to play to the extremes. Whereas the ME approach encourages you to RP Shepard and to deal with crap like your companions saying "I dunno Shepard, this war crime seems pretty messed up. But it doesn't affect me personally, and you generally know what you are doing, so I won't abandon you or become less effective".

Did a full playthrough on normal and i took me ~20 hours to complete (minus all the failed attempts where i had to quickload).
I will probably try a new playthrough on hard once i finished Moments of Truth.
Bought both games for 19.99€ which seems a very good price for the amount of playtime i'm offered.
Btw. I found the hitman games easier to complete. Especially the "8 snipers" missions was a pain. From this day on DTS is one of my all time favourite games.
Ps. I'm also playing loads of BF2: Project Reality. Really an amazing experience with the integrated mumble support.
