And they are doing nothing to make the wait for it any easier (Since the blog was so new, I was unable to get a press copy to review pre-release). Some selected snippets:
“We’ll be Playing this Forever” — PC Gamer (94/100)
“A true masterpiece in the turn-based strategy genre.” Level up Games (95/100)
“The best XCOM ever, period.” -IGN Italy (95/100)
“A Hot contender for Game of the Year for 2016” PC Games (German) (93/100)
“Firaxis’ masterclass in strategy design” — Game Informer (95/100)
“XCOM 2 is an amazing game I’ll easily put hundreds of hours into.” IGN US (93/100)
… Folks… I think they like it.
Can it be February fifth now, please?
And just in case you were wondering, yes, when I do get my hands on a copy I will be reviewing it.
