XCOM 2 is an immensely popular turn-based game where you move ahead using strategies and techniques. When the game starts, you assume the role of commander training soldiers for unlimited combats. A plane drops you and your soldiers into the battle zone where you keep attacking the enemies. You move ahead while coordinating with your soldiers. The map contains isometric battlefields and you have been assigned a task to defeat the aliens. The game brings lots of fun and intense brain exercise.
