XCOM 2 | Co-Dependent

XCOM 2 | Co-Dependent


It was interesting trying to tell Loki what to do, still not sure... More to come stay tuned.


I like this game maybe a bit more than the other two. Just a bit. 


I actually haven't played turn based games, so this was a first for me. The way we played it was interesting and fun with each of us controlling one character in the game. It made the decisions for our characters our own, so we would have to live with the consequences to whatever we chose to do. With it being a strategy game it makes you think about your choices as well. This was sometimes hard for me because I didn't know anything about the game to know what I should or shouldn't do. I would be interested in playing this game in the future either with friends like this or on my own.

  • 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.
  • EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.
