Top Critic Average
The story mission of Shen’s Last Gift is briefly interesting for its new location and escape mechanic, but the real reason to get this DLC is the sixth soldier class that expands your squad composition options with super-durable mech troops.
Firaxis has saved the best for last with the Shen's Last Gift DLC. A narrative-driven mission that culminates with adding a brand new mechanized squad member to your XCOM team is far more than anything we've seen from previous DLC releases.
Shen’s Last Gift should add Engineer Lily Shen as a permanent squad member, but the new robot soldiers aren’t bad. The mission running up The Lost Towers is a dangerous scenario at a breakneck pace, putting your soldiers in a whole lot of harm’s way, and putting your tactical faculties to the test.
