| XCom 2: A surprising masterpiece
When the XCom games first started I was in my teens and video games were truly getting interesting, I however didn't find them very engaging and never became a fan.

For some reason decades later I wound up playing one of the modern titles and thoroughly enjoyed it so I rushed out to get this latest offering.

I grew up adoring turn based combat, I love strategy games, and this seemed to tick nearly every single box. Incredible stuff, so complex, so intricate, so diverse, it's as if it were nearly tailor made for me.

With a great story, excellent customization options, solid replay value and an oddly enjoyable multiplayer mode I was positively gripped and set about to 100% the game. The difficulty curve is masterful and despite how intensely hard it gradually got I was never frustrated or driven away.

It saddens me we don't get more titles like this, absolutely fantastic.

The Good:

Excellent all round

The Bad:

Fair few bugs, screen tears and other issues

Hit chance ratio can get annoying
