XCOM 2 is the sequel to the award-winning strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown.  Earth has changed and is now under alien rule. Facing impossible odds you must rebuild XCOM, and ignite a global resistance to reclaim our world and save humanity. • XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations. • RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan. • TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point. • A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge. • RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics. • ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps. The XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition includes the full base game and the XCOM 2 Reinforcement pack, featuring three themed add-on packs: • ANARCHY’S CHILDREN features more dramatic rebellion-themed soldier customizations. • ALIEN HUNTERS introduces a new mission, new soldier customizations, weapons and gameplay themed around XCOM as an elite alien hunting unit. • SHEN’S LAST GIFT introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and a new narrative-driven mission and map.

Still Awesome

Still an awesome series with great challenging gameplay. Recommend a purchase if you're a fan of the previous XCOM.

13 turn to save the world, oops you're 1 round late...

xcom 2 is a fantastic game the one thing that kills it is the constant turn timers they're aggravating because if you have 1 hp left on a objective and the timer hits zero its a failed mission... and to add to that, my experience for today I had to hack a device i start on a big map with 8 turns to get from one side to the other maybe make a option for turning off timers but other than that game killing topic its a solid game

Good Sequel

Great improvement from part 1.and still as (if not more) challenging as its predecessor. They really went all out when it comes to variety of weapons&armor and surprisingly, enemies after every mission cause it WILL freeze

Love it with its flaws

I had a lot of fun with it, my only complaints are: a plethora of bugs and a few crashes, probably because of the XBOne. and this one lacks the 2nd wave options from Enemy within, which added endless replay value, I still recommend to strategy fans 100%

Feels as good as the original

Fell in love with this game as a kid. Years later Xcom for the Xbox does not disappoint. Has the feel of the old pc versions with the technology of today. If you're a fan of top down turn. based games, this one is for you.

"ALMOST" Had it... BUT I want a refund!

EDITED: I am at 75% game progress and cannot save anymore... Super peeved off now. I want a refund for real. This game is harming my xbox. Too bad cause this could have been a legendary game. ORIGINAL POST: Best Tactical Game since FF-Tactics release... That said, load times are absurd but do allow for nap time or a movie... There is also extensive console crashes I have never had happen before this game. Maybe would have been better on PC IDK... A great game to be sure just a bit undercooked (Rushed to release) perhaps. I truely hope there are planned patches that come with the $80 price tag.
