XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Reviews
XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen adds new enemies, new stories, new soldiers and lots more without upsetting the well-balanced combat that makes XCOM, XCOM.
An old-school expansion pack, improving the game all-around in ways no simple DLC could have achieved. XCOM 2 was great to begin with, and the new content brings it straight to the Olympus of turn-based strategy games.

Building upon the sturdy foundation laid out by XCOM 2, War of the Chosen sets a high mark for an already exceptional sci-fi strategy series.
'XCOM 2: War of the Chosen' somehow makes one of our favorite games of 2016 even better.
XCOM, you got me yet again.
A little more than 15 hours of gameplay, new environments, new enemies, new missions, new allies, improvements on many levels ... This is how to quickly describe this DLC called War of the Chosen. Despite its high price (39.99 euros) it's an excellent DLC that most fans have to play.

The new classes and super villains are excellent, even if the expansion bloats the campaign a little.
I'm far more invested in War of the Chosen than I was XCOM 2, and I thought XCOM 2 was fantastic.
War of the Chosen is an incredibly compelling reason to return to XCOM 2. Adding both depth in strategy and new content for the game. Anyone who enjoyed XCOM 2 will most certainly enjoy this excellent expansion.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is definitely not for newcomers to the series. I highly advise you to start with just the base game if you're intrigued at all by XCOM or the strategy genre because this adds so much more on top of the already difficult game that it might turn you off completely.
War for the Chosen adds a huge amount of content and a number of new mechanics to an already brimming game. It's a generous package that ought to please and frustrate (in a good way!) XCOM devotees.
While the strategy layer remains mostly the same, the variety in classes and tactics makes War of the Chosen a worthy XCOM 2 expansion.

War of the Chosen is a generous expansion that's bustling with brilliant new systems that's a must for anyone who's completed XCOM 2.
War of the Chosen is a nice way to retourn to the Avenger and fight those aliens. The new content is good and the whole game feels like new.

Overpowered aliens and a run of bad luck can test your resolve, but there is almost always a way out of every jam thanks to XCOM's layered strategy
'DLC' desperately undersells War Of The Chosen, this fat and bursting sausage of turn-based splendour. I think I might have found 'XCOM 3' a mite more appropriate.
War of the Chosen is a wide and deep expansion for XCOM 2 that improves variety in mission objectives, tactical options, threats, and strategic map activities. The Chosen are worthy adversaries who advance along with you to put up great fights without feeling cheap, and the new elite soldier classes add opportunities for interesting gameplay earlier in the campaign. Some significant balance issues show up, but especially for the first two-thirds of a campaign War of the Chosen restores the fear of the unknown to a game I know well.
War of the Chosen is a massive expansion that adds lots of new things. Most of the focus on the most important thing in any turn-based tactical strategy game - gameplay mechanics. The game has lots of solutions introduced in previous expansions but the key was to make the game even more enjoyable. It worked - XCOM 2 with War of the Chosen is one of the best tactical strategies.

In XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, fighting a losing battle might be just as much fun as fighting and winning.
