  1. Great game, but it will make you tilt really bad

    The story doesn't follow the conclusion of XCOM 1, and creates a what-if scenario in which your base was raided, and you were captured. From there onwards, the game forces you to fight against all odds to recover the Earth for humanity.

    Graphics wise, it's similar to XCOM 1, but the overall quality has improved a bit. On the other hand, the requirements have rised significantly. Average PCs should sacrifice optional effects in order to gain fluidity. Long turns with many opponents playing on screen will take a lot of time if the FPS drop very low.

    Regarding gameplay, it's exactly as any other XCOM (or similar) game. However, applying the Long War mod makes this game unique. You really feel you are leading a rebellion against aliens, with all the drawbacks included, such as fighting against superior numbers. The strategic layer changes from the usual XCOM to a whole new way of playing. Liberating regions from alien control is really tough, but it feels as a real reward.

    Personally, I think it isn't worthy playing this game without this mod. It was developed along with the game, since the mod creators participated in the development of the vanilla game. It makes things more reasonable at the beginning of the game, giving you advantages, such as more men, better equipment, and more ways to play. But it will crush you in the long term if you don't adapt to its infiltration and liberation mechanics.

    The RNG in this game is fair, from the point of view of being random, but the consequences are so unbalanced that you have to aim for big chances of wining. Failure has serious penalties. Afterall, aliens can be cloned, but your men (and women) cannot
