Is XCOM 2 Overestimated Or Worthy Of Attention ?
Welcome everyone to the XCOM 2 Review. XCOM 2 was developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games. It is a turn basd strategy video game. The gameplay is divided into two parts. At the strategic map where the player builds up his/her base, develops technologies, manufactures equipment, looking for new missions and planning the best next move. The other part of the game is more tactical. The players take their soldiers to the battlefield to fight the aliens and complete story objectives.
The XCOM series has a long history dated back to 1994 where the first ”XCOM” game – UFO : Enemy Unknown – published and it was a huge success. The ”XCOM” franchise is a collection of science fiction games where the basic idea is the aliens attack the Earth and the players must defend it fighting in the whole world. Nowadays this idea is far from original and it has been overused so much over the years. But back then it was very popular and not saturated. More games followed, but at some point they stopped. But it created a cult fanbase, plus many future video games were influenced, resulting in many clones and remakes. The franchise rebooted with XCOM : Enemy Unknown. The basic classic gameplay was the same, adding some features during the development. In fact not much was changed from the original game but mostly the graphics were upgraded greatly (as the devs claimed).
