So time keeps ticking in XCOM 2, and the best we can do is make the right choices when we have the chance. XCOM 2 imparts the weight of those decisions, and that's what makes it extraordinary. It's mathematical, emotional, and thoughtful all at once. It's exhilarating, even in the face of failure. It's compelling, even though we often lose. Victory is the goal, but that's just an afterthought here--it's the complex journey that counts.

Even with those smaller issues noted, it's telling of the quality of XCOM 2 that I put some 80 hours into it over such a short period of time. It twists what players know about the series in brilliant new ways but also remains familiar enough that it certainly isn't throwing the baby out with the bath water. It takes one of the best games in recent years and makes it better on almost every front. Even if you have to endure performance issues, what XCOM 2 has to offer is well worth fighting through them for.

A solid followup to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM 2 delivers on story, action, and tension. It's nonetheless in serious need of optimization to correct glitching and framerate issues.
