Critic Reviews for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

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.

The new classes and super villains are excellent, even if the expansion bloats the campaign a little.

An exceptionally good expansion that adds in a mountain of new content that specifically addresses the few flaws there were with the original.

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

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.
