Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review

Now, you can color me surprised when I say that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle actually turned out to be an exceptionally well-crafted game with intelligent tactical gameplay design that has enough depth to scratch the itch of hardcore turn-based tactic/strategy players. It also made me eat every scathing word I had spewed about it.

XCOM 2

Those few returning flaws aside, XCOM 2 is an experience. Much like its predecessor, Firaxis again delivers a fantastic mix of tactical combat and strategy, held together by an almost scarily stressful bow bathed in the blood of your fallen warriors. If you have any interest at all in turn-based games, you owe yourself this game as a gift, and honestly, even if you have little to no interest, playing this may just get that engine started. I think this may be the first unmissable game this year.

XCOM: Enemy Within

Players who enjoyed 2012's *XCOM: Enemy Unknown*, already know whether they will enjoy *Enemy Within*. For devotees still playing, or folks who put the game down to focus on other things for a while, *Enemy Within* brings interesting new ways to combat the alien invasion that are well worth the asking price. Just be ready for Firaxis to throw a dozen Chryssalids and a handful of flying disks in your direction.
