Storyline

Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces and XCOM, the planet's last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now the aliens rule earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface while concealing a sinister agenda below and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to rise from the ashes, expose the insidious truth behind the occupation and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

XCom 2: A surprising masterpiece
13 May 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

When the XCom games first started I was in my teens and video games were truly getting interesting, I however didn't find them very engaging and never became a fan.

For some reason decades later I wound up playing one of the modern titles and thoroughly enjoyed it so I rushed out to get this latest offering.

I grew up adoring turn based combat, I love strategy games, and this seemed to tick nearly every single box. Incredible stuff, so complex, so intricate, so diverse, it's as if it were nearly tailor made for me.

With a great story, excellent customization options, solid replay value and an oddly enjoyable multiplayer mode I was positively gripped and set about to 100% the game. The difficulty curve is masterful and despite how intensely hard it gradually got I was never frustrated or driven away.

It saddens me we don't get more titles like this, absolutely fantastic.

The Good:

Excellent all round

The Bad:

Fair few bugs, screen tears and other issues

Hit chance ratio can get annoying
