I'm playing XCom 2 at the moment and I figure it is probably going to make me heavily dislike this... Will be pleasantly surprised if there's some depth to it though.

As someone who got SMASHED by XC2 in the short amount of time I've spent with it - You'll probably find the first world pretty tedious. It's essentially a tutorial and you'll already know much of what it's explaining!

Battles are a little different from XC from what I can tell though. Notably with how your team can move around the arena, attacking enemies within your movement radius as part of your move turn, using pipes to get around, etc. Iv'e fount it pretty easy to get blindsided and be wasteful with my turns through not paying attention. RE Difficulty so far it's no pushover but it's nowhere near as merciless as XC2.

Main difference seems to be there's no manually laying out your base, and missions are accessed through exploring light platforming/puzzle areas. And of course it's quite humorous in tone, and bright and cuddly.

Really liked my afternoon with it yesterday, and kicking myself for forgetting to pack the Switch to play in my lunch break today!

Got it yesterday and played through the first world (until it crashed during the boss battle). Having a great time. It starts off very easy but still fun and easy to see how much it can ramp up the difficulty. You can see where it punishes you for any mistakes. Humour is better than I thought it would be, rabbids are actually pretty funny. Im really looking forward to testing out the co-op with a mate on the weekend

I have to say, i don't really like this game, i appreciate the details and the work involved in the game, but it's just so repetitive and a bit too overly cartoony and self parody for me, not very engaging...

will probably trade it in, shame.

don't really understand the 9/10 reviews, though from some perspective i do get it, it's just not what i would call on the level of truly classic games at all.

glad i got the game for cheap, 57 dollars at costco.

though i haven't played through it very far yet, so that could be part of it.

Maybe it's the type of game you either love or hate because I instantly loved it from the very start and haven't stopped playing it.

Not a strategy game fan but this has been pretty fun so far. Arguably the best looking Switch game and Kirkhope absolutely nailed the soundtrack.

Only thing I'd suggest to people not feeling it is to give it at least until the end of the 1st world, felt like 1 big tutorial.

Playing in short bursts is another suggestion. The battles can get repetitive once you have your team and tactic locked down. I am concerned about the depth at this stage.
