So your first question probably is it as good as X come one or better and is it worth buying and the answer is yes go out and buy it right now. I freaking love XCOM 2 and I wanted to do well and honestly I was a bit worried at the direction it took so for some reason we lost the war.
Even though I fought hard as hell to defeat those alien is the first time check, I’ll come on Prometheus and that’s not cool. It’s like that damn council just decided to give up because I couldn’t protect.
One country like freaking Zimbabwe but if you don’t understand there will be nothing left we’ve heard enough Commander Joe, don’t dad that doesn’t make any sense.
Who will protect you we’re taking away your toys button and we’re letting the aliens have their way with us but in the bus the council unbelievable. They had their way with us in the butt and continue to have their way with us humanity has been subjugated and pacified and the resistance is now a very small set of just hopeless insurgents.
How this was going to play out and wouldn’t be any fun.
The answer to that is it plays out beautifully and yes it is a ton of fun. It turned out to be a fantastic design decision that leads to plenty of very cool scenarios.
Just this game is awesome I’ve been playing 12 hours straight that’s how awesome this game is but all that is fucking worth it today to do you know he’s only going to get better too.
Now one thing you’ll notice is how much more cinematic this X comments from the previous one which already had a cinematic take there’s a lot more story. There’s a lot more cut scenes to drive along the action and I really appreciated that as it’s something new that the old nostalgic ex-cons didn’t have previously.
You hear that music Joe that means every single one of you are coming back and I’m giving control.
Now in this game the Avenger a captured and repurpose alien vessel takes the form of the Ex-com base of operations. It’s mobile and so you’ll be traveling across the world map think of it like risk. Contacting different resistance elements left the world building infrastructure and attempting to stop something called the Avatar project.
The aliens are building supplies and Intel serve as your sources of income and resources that you’ll manage spending these to get better armor better technology and with Intel to prepare yourself against alien surprises in progress.
Black site missions allow you to slow down the Avatar project progress as well as dark events which will hinder you in some way if they’re not taking care of immediately.
