[EB Games] XCOM 2 - Collection - PS4/XBONE - $29.99

Price dropped to $29.99 and its a pretty hot deal. THERE IS NO STOCK ONLINE. Lots of stock in store at EB.

The Xbone version is $29.99 and $39.99 for the PS4 on Amazon.

Price match opportunity is also available at Bestbuy ($79.99) in store only for $28, which is what I paid for it.

That's true. I thought this was a good deal because you get both games on 2 discs. Plus the expansion makes it seem like completely different game.

It was lots of fun. The only issue I had with the base game is the load times because I save scum.

The last mission on the base game brings my PS4 to a crawl back in the days. Good game for this price.

This was a solid game, though quite different from the first. The first one encouraged carefully creeping forwards, going from cover to cover, while this one with so many timed missions encourages an aggressive sprint into the darkness. Load times are pretty long, which is painful for a game that a lot of people are going to save-and-reload on. Some people will find the gameplay frustrating because of the dice roll element, while others embrace the randomness and roll with the punches.

Overall, I really liked it. the expansions are meaningful as well - the game and expansions were glitchy at first with some crashing and performance issues, which hurt its initial reception, but those have partly been ironed out. If you haven't played it and you think you'd enjoy the somewhat unforgiving tactical gameplay and base/mission management, then it's a deal at 30 bucks.

You can probably get it more cheaply elsewhere, though.

Yeah can pick it up for PC for cheaper. Also better on PC with all the mods available. There are a couple in particular that make the gameplay more enjoyable but I can;t think of the name of it right now

Plus on PC it can be installed on a SSD for much better loading speed. Long War 2 is a good start for anyone considering mods.

So you confirmed you didn't know what you were talking about then but decided to post anyways? Perhaps try using your own advice.

think it was just the base game - free with active Ps+ membership .. the collection includes XCOM 2: War of the Chosen which i think should have been in the base.. not a secondary feature (most reviews also agree). the 4 extra DLCs seems pretty good. tempted..

Yeah that was the mod I was thinking about. I preferred it to the original game
