Hey, let's make a sequel to our beloved tactical game and only take its worst qualities and make them 10x more prevalent what could go wrong?
What finally pushed me to quit this game was having a soldier get panicked by a Sectoid, which caused him to run into the blast radius of a Codex explosion which promptly killed him without me being able to do anything about it. Bad enough already, but his death prompted two of my soldiers to start panicking as well, which made them run into random fucking directions and triggering the Viper King that was apparently just chilling on the backlines, who subsequently killed one of them and blocked my way to the timed objective. Fuck this game.
Maybe I'll come back for it one day but I got really fucking tired of EVERY shot being 50% accuracy at most, soldiers panicking after every little thing, enemies one shotting you starting from Veteran difficulty, enemies seeming to crit on every fucking shot, destroying cover being a must for every encounter if you want any chance at a sensible hit rate but then getting almost no tools to do so, enemies being spotted / revealing themselves and attacking on the same turn, enemy overwatch not popping up so randomly getting merc'd while repositioning, some green objectives being able to be completed after using all your turns and others not (making it a fucking guessing game), etc. etc.
XCOM 2 has the aesthethics of a great sequel but it plays like a downgrade to Enemy Unknown in nearly every way.

Surprisingly fun. Loved the game and its mechanics. I want more and idk where to get it.

I miss when it was called twitter 2

I love turnbased tactics and strategy games, so I expected XCOM 2 to hit really hard for me, but I ended up just kinda liking it a bit?
XCOM 2 thrives on pushing you into uncomfortable positions through ambushes, time pressure, and other suprises you cannot plan for but have to adapt to. If that sound good to you, you will probably love this game. But it is not quite the pace and experience that really tickles my brain when I play games of this genre

Really difficult, but also exceptional in quality, especially with DLC.
