The Surge 2 1 (1)

This game is Xbox One X enhanced

The Surge 2 improves on its predecessor in every way, and The Surge wasn’t exactly a bad game. In fact, it was very good indeed.

Taking the Dark Souls formula and implanting it in a sci-fi setting, The Surge 2 is quite possibly the best souls-like available outside those that FromSoftware have put out. Its combat is tense and weighty, there’s a decent amount of scope for multiple character builds, and its setting is cohesive and unique. Plus, how many games let you rip off parts of your enemies so you can use them yourself? The Surge 2 allows that, and it’s great.

If you’re a fan of the Dark Souls games you really should add The Surge 2 to your library – it’s as simple as that. And if you haven’t played the first game, that’s worth playing as well. As far as games like Dark Souls on Xbox One go, they’re both worth a look.
