I have noticed some videos on YouTube showing the soldier customisation screen with more options (e.g different suit/colours/helmet).

Is this a cheat or just an additional DLC pack I don't know about?

The extra customization options were originally a pre-order bonus for XCOM Enemy Unknown. They are now available via the Elite Soldier DLC pack.

Despite the price, this DLC is very important to obtain so that all of your soldiers can have the original X-COM "Guile" style hair.

+1 for the Guile hair line lol :) – Zabs Aug 12 '14 at 14:34
I seriously do think it's an important feature, so you can color-code your soldiers by class. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 12 '14 at 16:47
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft - No, it's important so you can colour-code your soldiers to look like the ponies. :P (But, yes I do agree with you - being able to tell your soldiers apart at a glance is great.) – au revoir Aug 12 '14 at 16:52
