Reborngamers Review :

What a game, Simply Awesome. When I first started playing xcom 1 enemy Unknown, I was just dazzled that a turn-based tactics game be this thrilling and so satisfying. Xcom 2 has done justice to its predecessor, variety, and replayability is the focus of X com 2. New improvements like loot, randomized objectives, and unpredictable maps, with a large variety of alien enemies.

The storyline continues after enemy within, humans have lost the war and now the aliens rule the world with the support of the Advent (an organization with genetically modified humans).The player takes control of whats remaining of Xcom to take back earth from the aliens. The storyline is great with amazing cut scenes.The flying fortress "The Avenger" will be your command center. From there you can build, manage your squad and facilities.Decision making is the key factor when building your force and upgrading them. The map can offer you various activities and keeps you busy until the end of the game.

The game's combat system is unique, thrilling and exciting. The foes in xcom2 will be tough, brutal and variety of enemies xcom has to offer is so great.The AI is super competitive, you cant predict the AI's moves.  When your favorite character is injured or killed you will feel the emotion towards that character.The choices and decisions you make will determine how your characters advance through the whole game.The game's customization features have reached newer heights whether its the color of the weapon or the armor of the characters, players will a spend a huge amount of time in customization, it's that addictive.

Verdict :

This game is just wonderful, with a strong storyline and most satisfying cutscenes, every move you make is important,  With resource management and to select which targets to hit in the world, this games gives you its full potential, If you haven’t played Xcom series, go and get this game it's so good.
