On my new computer, I finally had a chance to sit down and play XCOM 2 War of the Chosen by Firaxis, without the technical issues plaguing my old PC and see the game in its full light. I’ve said many times over that Firaxis’s take on the venerable franchise comes close to being my perfect game, but the issues I have with it keep it from that lofty position.
This year, I’ve been able to play a variety of tactical strategy games, and I can finally put into words why I feel XCOM and XCOM 2 just don’t work for me from a design perspective.
My monster-sized review of XCOM 2 will be up later today, but to get you guys ready, here is another legend video of the game that I made. The video got cut off at the end due to the game crashing, which I’ll be talking about in my review.
