XCOM 2 is a fantastic accomplishment, and series fans will be happy to hear it's better than Enemy Unknown in pretty much every conceivable way. The few frustrations that do exist are primarily technical, and while the camera's unlikely to see a reboot anytime soon, the rest could probably be fixed with patches in the future.

In spite of a few glaring technical issues, XCOM 2 represents a high-water mark for the entire franchise. Firaxis successfully tells an evocative story. It treats players with respect and includes so many small quality of life improvements over the original they are simply too numerous to mention. It is challenging enough at its basic difficulty level to feel like a complete experience. Despite the bugs, it's still the best-looking, most exciting turn-based tactical game I've ever played.

In many ways, XCOM 2 is more of what we already enjoyed in the recent reboot, with a few considerable improvements. The new units liven up the experience and add much more variety, while the procedurally generated maps help to customize every player’s experience into a one of a kind novelty. If you’re a newcomer to the resistance or an old veteran, XCOM 2 is a smartly designed action-strategy game with a staggering amount of content and replayability.
