A pretty epic audio score is let down by some static acting and repetitive dialogue.
While the game looks slick and sexy, it does suffer from some performance issues. Quite a lot actually.
It plays as good as it did in 2012. You would have thought after all these years though, they’d have cut out some of the niggles that have existed in the franchise since Enemy Unknown.
XCOM 2 boasts a great, but fairly repetitive campaign – even with procedurally generated environments – that will offer hours of entertainment, albeit very similar entertainment. There’s multiplayer too, which still works and is pretty damn good.
The achievements in XCOM 2 are actually quite decent. There’s a nice mix of challenging, brutal achievements, story achievements and some cool little side-task achievements.
