Interesting concept, executed decently
22 October 2019 | by herobrinebaconSee all my reviews

I suck at the regular XCOM games. Even on easier difficulties I'm still trash. I play a lot of shooting games, and this game takes the real time strategy aspect and combines it with the XCOM command system. While on the field you can order your troops just like you would in a normal XCOM game, while actually being one of the men yourself. I found this way more fun personally because it took the things I liked from the games I was no good at, and made it appeal to me. People complain that the AI is bad, but I found as long as you command them constantly, they are pretty helpful. You still work as a team. The way the commands work is you go into Battle Focus, which is similar to VATS from the Fallout games. It makes time super slow while you plan each move. The class system is the same as other XCOM games, you upgrade abilities and chose which path each solider goes. One of the best things about this game is the era. It feels so cool to be fighting aliens in the 60s when technology was so limited and you have to make use of what the enemies leave behind. The cover system is so nice to use compared to other games, and nothing feels like a grind. I am really enjoying this game, and am so happy 2K tried somthing new because now I can experience XCOM without being terrible at the game.
