If you do get it for PC myp, you might like to consider the following mods for some small but useful UX fixes:

Gotcha Again - gives you a preview of which potential moves will flank an enemy; this isn't obvious without it
Stop Wasting My Time - removes some weird pauses the game does after various events like getting a kill or throwing a grenade
Instant Avenger Menus - removes some tedious animations shown in the strategic layer, in particular the very slow geoscope hologram zoom thing
Evac All - gives you a single click button to evac all your soldiers in an evac zone, as opposed to you having to do them one at a time
Show Health Values - gives you a numerical value for enemy health so you don't need to count up the health bar pips on beefier opponents with 10+ health

None of these affect game balance at all.

Funnily enough NASCAR has just announced a money-spinning Pro series with iRacing but sadly my iRating is nowhere near good enough currently, if it ever will be.
