XCOM 2 review round up

2 min read
0

XCOM! It’s one of our favourite revived franchises ever, and it was made even better thanks to Firaxis’ deft hand at taking something with so much nostalgic weight and making it their own. It was followed up an expansion that was just as good – creating news fans for the revered franchise. And this month, the battle against the alien threat really comes to a head in the PC-exclusive sequel. XCOM 2 is out at the end of this week – but reviews are out right now. Here’s what critics have to say about a game that’s very probably already in the running to be on the end of the year GOTY lists.

IGN – 9.3/10

Xcom2_2

With a focus on variety and replayability, this sequel has an answer to most of my complaints about 2012’s excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and aside from some mostly cosmetic bugs, it comes together brilliantly. Thanks to a new spin on the same great tactical combat, plus unpredictable maps and randomized objectives and loot, XCOM 2 is an amazing game I’ll easily put hundreds of hours into.

EGM – 7.5/10

Xcom2_3

XCOM 2 is a generally solid experience, but it is definitely one of those titles that may not be for everyone due to its punishing game style and occasional unpredictably of success.

 

Gamewatcher  – 9/10

Xcom2_4

XCOM 2 is everything a sequel should be, keeping the things that everyone loved about the first game while changing things up as much as possible.

GameInformer – 9.25/10

Xcom2_5

Alien firefights play out like deadly games of chess. The difficulty tests your resolve, but XCOM remains one of the deepest and most rewarding strategy games on the market

SA Gamer – 9/10

Xcom2_1

It was a bold move changing the ending of Enemy Unknown and eradicating Enemy Within, but XCOM 2 is all the stronger, and more interesting, for it. This is a much more intimate, daring group than the sprawling defense force of before. Out of that battered, broken shell a scrappy underdog has emerged, fighting to save people who have forgotten that there ever was a war, thanks to a burgeoning propaganda machine that has dulled their senses and placated them like cattle. XCOM 2 is punishing and relentless, forcing you to question almost every decision you make before thrusting a new disaster in your face.

Where’s our review, you ask? We unfortunately don’t have the game just yet, so we’ll be reviewing off of a retail copy. We’ll have it for you as soon as we can.

        I could be wrong but I think Takealot.com and Raru had it a little cheaper but then you don’t get the Resistance Warrior Pack on release. Steam does seem to be a good deal especially since all the other online sites are based in US$ and even with discounts (like Greenmangaming.com) are still more than R599.

          Yeah, I was rushing the campaign on easy just to get the 5 starting points achievement. Rushing and XCOM don’t mix. So many troopers died to bad placement. I lost 3 high level troops in one mission.

            Can you get away with that? I am not sure I could do that

            Although, at my wedding, two of my uncles watched the cricket and missed EVERYTHING after the church ceremony (we got married at 14:00). They just came round and saw people eating and ate.

            I do understand they had to answer some very tough questions on the ride home, though.

            By the time both my children are in bed, it’s about 21:00 or so. Then it’s time to chat and relax with my wife because we need to spend more time together. By then it’s usually 23:00, so bed time. Adulting got hard

            Our 3 year old is in bed usually by 20:00. The 4 month old can be anywhere up to 22:00, it’s a bit of a lucky gamble. Lately it’s around 21:00 then thankfully he sleeps through till 05:00. So it’s 2 hours of chatting and watching 1 episode of a series by then my wife is tired and it’s bed time. I sometimes would then play till midnight or 01:00 but I’m finding 4 hours of sleep is not doing me well in the office lately.

            I know that feeling, luckily we have good coffee at the office, doesn’t help that you’d need three cups to start the day off with, but alas…

            Same but we a dependent on the little guy at the moment. We usually have him in bed by 21:00. Then it’s chatting a bit and maybe 1 episode of a series. If I do jump on it’s pretty late and exactly that maybe 2 hours if I can stop myself.

        Not to worry, I’ll be playing Dirt Rally for a long time to come, no, actually, I’ll be crashing, yes, crashing in Dirt Rally for a while still to come and then Alien:Isolation and then hopefully, when I’ve finished that I’ll switch to XCOM…
