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

8.8 / 10.0

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.

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