Its’ been almost 5 years since the release of XCOM:2. And yeah. It’s still great, unique and fun. Not to mention it’s one of the best turn-based tactics video games out there. Check it out here.
What’s XCom:2 All About?
Well, developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K, it’s the sequel to 2012’s reboot of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. A military organization trying to fight off an alien invasion. Also has lost the war and is now a resistance force against the occupation of Earth. Not to mention the established totalitarian regime and military dictatorship.
A Cool Cinematic Influence On The Game?
Indeed, there’s plenty of great influence in X Com:2. But there are few movies that are a true standout from the rest. And then there’s Oblivion of course. You’ll probably notice the aesthetic similarities between these projects. But on the other side of this game, you’ll not only love the action. You’ll also love the gameplay. And the action that it contains. Oh, and yes, you’ll be also getting back to this game over and over again.
Not to mention, the graphics are great, and the missions are fantastic. And if you’re a fan of turn-based games, then this is the game for you. Sure some might call it a bit hard, but nice you get the hang of it, it’s fun. And we also recommend you play the walk-trough first. But yeah. It’s killing aliens in space. What’s not to like about that?
Besides this is also a game for old-time gamers. And the fans of the XCom franchise. Before you know it, you will clock in a decent amount of hours. But don’t despair, you’ll love every second of it. And who knows? Maybe it will become your new favorite game. If it’s not by now, we’re sure that will become. And you’ll find yourself going back to it. Over and over. This is a great game and deserves that indeed. And yes, the intense game-play makes the game a bit nerve-wracking. But it’s worth it no doubt.
