Another day another XCOM run complete, however this time I noticed a trend that seemed to be the case for every playthrough of the game, once I got near the end of the game all challenge seemed to be lost.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love struggling at the start to then become gods later on in a game. It helps me to realise where I came from and how I have improved over the course of the game, it just seems that XCOM 2 may have a bit of a strange difficulty curce that spirals down heavily over time. Soldiers become impossible to kill gods, weapons one shot aliens with ease and even with the amount of creatures being thrown at you everything is being tossed aside like it’s nothing.
What I am really interested in however is what you all think of this reverse difficulty curve, where a game starts off incredibly difficult and becomes a breeze by the late game. Share your opinions and let us know if you think it’s a good or satisfying gaming system. That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
