Synopsis


XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year. Earth has changed and is now under alien rule. Facing impossible odds you must rebuild XCOM, and ignite a global resistance to reclaim our world and save humanity.

Features


RESISTANCE WARRIOR PACK: Customize your squad of resistance fighters with bonus outfits, headgear, and custom facial war paint. Instantly unlock a survivor of the old war as a recruit in your barracks.

XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM's mobile headquarters.

New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.

RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.

TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts.

Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.

A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.

RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.

EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.

ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.

    I normally don't recommend games to my friends because everyone has a type of game they like to play, like RPG, action, FPS etc. This game is a strategy game but with lots of other elements in the game as well. You build your base and manage a team. You choose missions you want to do and you level up your guys. There is a little bit of everything in this game kind of like something for everyone. I highly recommend giving this game a try. Might want to try Xcom: enemy unknown first but you don't have to...to enjoy this game, just helps to add to the story. I do however recommend you set this game to the easiest level and if you still have problems there are a few cheat codes to help you out. Trust me even really hard core gamers have problems with this game because it can get hard at times. Look up scores on this game it is highly rated almost every where.

    I'm a huge fan of the Xcom games. Xcom 2 does not disappoint. If you played the previous games, this is more pf the same. Most of the changes are great, there's a little more depth to the classes and you have a little, albeit very little, pull in what classes to make new recruits. My main complaint that keeps it from 5 stars is this: I was very psyched to hear they would have character creation including choosing your class this go round. That was a bit of a let down though as when creating your character you choose looks, mood, class, etc., but when the you find your recruit the only thing guaranteed to be what you made it is the looks. The class and mood are still completely random. So what's the point? Not much. Once you learn to accept your fate in that regard though, and just get to the game itself, it is worth it. Great story and fun gameplay.

    One of the best strategy games out right now

    You don't have to play the first xcom game but it does help you understand the story if you do play the first one. If you look at the scores for the first game the second game Imo is even better. That isn't to say it doesn't have it's down falls. It does have slow load times the more you save games and the farther you get into the game. It is how they wrote the software so it's not a glitch it's just bad code and they can't rewrite the whole game just to fix it. So besides that it's one of the hardest and most fun strategy games I have ever played. If you like alien stories and turn base strategy games like final fantasy tactics but with realistic graphics then you will love this game. Also when one of your troops die that's it just like real life. They get wounded and die so be careful and have a blast.

    An excellent successor for the original.

    I love the Xcom series as I could just keep on playing as long as I liked before taking on the final battle. The new Xcom2 seems a little more perilous and there seems to be an overarching objective that must be met by a specific time. Overall graphics and game play are excellent. If you played Xcom before it will be mostly familiar enough for you to take off and play. Lots of new toys and soldier classifications to experiment with. Feels much more constrained on resources even on the easiest levels. After one of the bigger campaigns (30+ min) it crashed right as I was evacuating my troops, but they should get that patched soon hopefully. :) By: D.Stanton

    If you enjoy strategy games then you'll definitely enjoy this one. Its really fun and will definitely make you think. For those that haven't ever played this before its plays similar to games like Fire Emblem or Halo Wars. Its top down view and you control a squad across a map to take down aliens and complete missions. The only annoying thing is that many missions are time based and your ability to hit an enemy is based on a percentage. This means you could be in front of an enemy and have a 99% chance to hit the foe and still miss. Otherwise its a great game.

    Needs a casual setting

    Choices matter in this game. If you are looking for a casual experience, even with the different level settings, don't try this game. The game does not reward picking options that are not the obvious "better" decision. Which is a shame because that is what limits it being capable of multiple plays or player exploration. That's the bad. The good is that it exciting and has some nice character choices. If you are looking for a thinking mans game and are not easily turned off by bad luck. This will fill the need for some good strategy.

    As a fan of XCOM Enemy Unknown, I jumped on a "deal of the day" Best Buy ran for this particular game. For a strategy game, most people would expect this to be ideal for PC only. However this game plays equally well on consoles too. Given the fact that the game's publisher has more content coming for the game, if you're waiting for a "complete version" of XCOM 2, it's probably best to wait it out. However there is nothing wrong playing this copy of the game as is...

    X-Com 2 builds upon an award winning series that first launched on the PC with X-Com. From beautiful graphics to a story line that captures you within the first minute, this game provides hours of game play enjoyment. The turn based component of the game provides a great deal of strategic thinking. The ability to customize every component of your base as well as soldiers provides multiple ways of tackling this game. I recommend going up in difficulty as you become familiar with the game.
