Check out http://openxcom.org/ - if you haven't already.
Thanks for the link, the osx version seems work well, I have the full collection on GG but never bothered attempt install it. I used an automatic wrapper to install the GG version in the wrapper, then copy all the files where the open version need them and it worked.

The only bug I noticed from a quick play is that the path hint is wrong. There's an option to show your path before to move, ie really the minimal, alas it doesn't work and don't compute well the action points, I suppose it's still a bug in this version.

I tried a little bit up to first mission of X-com original through this open version and I think your imagination needs work a lot to really find atmosphere in it. It's in fact a very cold game, descriptions lack a lot of mood. It's more qualities in your mind than really in the game.

Moreover I tried two times play the first combat mission and it made me smile to notice how aliens are pure basic campers, I don't call that good gameplay, lol.
