XCOM 2 – Review
XCOM 2 is mathematical, emotional, and thoughtful all at once. It’s exhilarating, even in the face of failure. Victory is the goal, but that’s just an afterthought here–it’s the complex journey that counts.
Read Mike’s in-depth review at…
So basically, MORE HEROIC DEATHS!
I always name my guys after my friends and let them know how they did.
Damn, probably one of the best reviews I've read/watched. Well done
Wow, the gameplay video looks amazing, I love all the different perspectives and the animations.
Is the music from the soundtrack and if so which song is it. If it isn't what song is it?
What's with the shitty music in this review?
Complaining about chance, in a game around chance…
I'm sure Xcom deserves a 9, but this review was just not good. It was wordy and metaphor laden but did little to actually tell any specifics about the game. The review felt more like a friend trying to convince me to by the game more so than a review of the quality and functions of a product. I was just not very informative.
I am currently on my first campaign. I'm on veteran and it's June. I have only lost 2 soldiers. Not a single soldier casualty has occurred since March 22, 2035.
This was a wonderful review, great job.
LIne of sigth in xcom 2 makes no sense at all. Apperently the soldiers can look threw a building and see the enemy!? The AI is so stupid it seems they want to die. How can i hit someone standing behind cover and with a 20% hit chance get killed with a critcical while when im standing next to a muton with a hit of 96% and mis. This games menchanics make no sense at all! Im still enoying the game but if this keeps up it wil be waste of money.
The word timer is pretty misleading. Most of the people I find in the comments section want the aliens to just sit back and wait for the player to do things at his own pace. Sorry man you want a challenge?? This is a challenge. The aliens will try to react to you and you will throw wrenches in their plans, but if you wanna just sit on your ass while they put their plan into action then ya you will get punished for it. God damn "let me play with my thumb in my ass generation"
the game is good, more or less what i expected. But those damn timers, to hell with them!
Did I miss it? Or did Gamespot just completely ignore the performance issues this game has? Running worse than Witcher 3 while not even coming close to its level of detail.
the teleporting through walls thing might not be the game cheating. i've seen it happens once or twice, and it seems to occur when a units pathing gets confused, so the game just teleports them to the intended space. Seems like a roundabout way to ensure that the game doesn't break and freeze up while watching a Sectoid walk into a wall forever.
Game is 10/10
wow great review nicely written and not the same old same old generic review
Okay, this time, no save scumming.
Do maps actually reflect the location in the world they take place? It was one of the most immersion breaking aspects of previous title that you could be in Africa, New York, or China, and nothing about the map would indicate this, in fact, it would be the same freaking map!
Sad how this is exclusive to PC yet still manages to run so poorly. And the gameplay is mediocre with the AI constantly cheating.
Still could've used more microtransactions!
"Got critted by a long range plasma shot while Hunkered Down in heavy cover."
why is this underrated it totally feels like fallout 2 again
Damn, didn't know Jagged Alliance soul mate existed
Did he really point out the round limits as an advantage? That's the worst design decision they could made. Nearly every user comment is complaining about that.
At least there was a day one mod for this mistake.
yeah yeah fair…… -_- till you meet the avatar, that fucking almighty beast is so overpowered!
Looks a bit over the top, too much wierdness.
That thumbnail…Anyone here have trypophobia?
So those of us that enjoyed xcom on last gen consoles just get shafted… bullshit.
Played 15 hours and lost :/
dear stunlancers……..fok off eh
xcom2 is a buggy rnd piece of shit !
This is a game review NOT a fucking science report. All these reviewers on youtube like ign and so forth use these big words and poetic phrases and its so fucking obnoxious
TOP NOTCH REVIEW ,
A clear sense of , What the game is ?
this game is complete garbage. I tried the campaign 4 times already and keep restarting because of the bullshit. my entire crew got wiped out in one turn, 4 crits. i mean come on
you couldnt nerf consecutive ai crits?
Where is that music from in the opening? Is that the soundtrack or gamespot?
This review tries so hard to sound intellectual…
Weak, repetitive story; strict timout missions. Maybe some DLC will bring it to life.
this game is too starwarsy for me im out
This looks sick! Want it.
PS4 version is out in less than a week and I'm pumped!
Is there a time limit
Yea, there so much excessive verbiage from the reviewer and his constant description how "awesome" the game is very unprofessional.
I really recommend the "true concealment" mod. Basically it makes it so the countdown timer doesn't start until you break your concealment, allowing you to be more careful in the beginning of each mission.
Probably the best review GameSpot has had in years. after playing xcom for a week I knew exactly what he was talking about
That's a nice story. Now do a review next time.
I'm just worried that they won't make an XCOM 3
FREE ON PSN PLUS STARTING TODAY!!!
I wonder if the developers sat down and said guys let's make a game we can't even beat. A game geared towards the players defeat and only the players defeat. 90% chance to hit and miss. 40 aliens vs 4 soldiers and hey fuck it why not a time limit throughout the whole thing. There's a point where hard becomes annoying and not fun. Congratulations you crossed that point👍👍👍👍
