XCOM 2: War of the Chosen
Top Critic Average
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 generous expansion that's bustling with brilliant new systems that's a must for anyone who's completed XCOM 2.
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.
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
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.
In XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, fighting a losing battle might be just as much fun as fighting and winning.
I'm far more invested in War of the Chosen than I was XCOM 2, and I thought XCOM 2 was fantastic.
XCOM, you got me yet again.
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.
