The number of mission types along with the randomly generated tile sets and varying enemies will keep XCOM 2 feeling fresh even through your 4th or 5th playthrough. With mod support and multiplayer in tow, the replayability just keeps on giving. Everything is bigger and better, XCOM 2 exceeds expectations and spawns new hope in future sequels. Future 2016 games have been served notice, XCOM 2 is an early contender for game of the year.

It is the countless little touches, such as your troops whispering acknowledgments while in stealth, or ducking when within the line of sight of a comrade’s shot, that truly show the commitment and effort the team at Firaxis poured into this stunning sequel. If XCOM: Enemy Unknown was the standard-bearer for tactical turn-based games, then XCOM 2 has wrested control of that flag, and now holds it even higher.

XCOM 2 does everything Enemy Unknown did and improved on it with more variations as well as some very interesting game mechanics. Anyone who enjoyed the first game has no reason not to pick this one up. It has a few performance issues here and here, but it is still a challenging yet rewarding game that made me have every emotion from joyous to devastated. One of the early game of the year contenders for me, and a fine game any strategy fan should own.
