    "This is a super fun stealth game, though I'd be hesitant to call it a shooter game--it's much more like chess than it is Call of Duty. If you're in to very turn-based play (and therefore slower turn around), this is a decent game of stealth."

    "If you mastered XCOM: Enemy Unknown and had your base build order down to a science, knew exactly what to research when, and memorized the best routes, and knew where enemies would appear then you will be surprised when XCOM 2 defeats you with the element of randomness. You can no longer count on that path that took you to victory one time to work twice."
