There’s a lot of content to unpack here, with a good 20-30 hours worth of missions to work your way through. And at a bargain price, it can also work as a great entry point for the franchise if you’ve always been curious. The smaller mission structure suits drop in and drop out play, it remains tactical but approachable, and best of all it still captures the best of XCOM while providing something fresh and different. XCOM Chimera Squad is the best surprise of 2020 in more ways than one.

As far as graphics and technical issues are concerned, XCOM: Chimera Squad is not an improvement over its predecessors, and even all the old bugs are still present in it. Instead, it is a title that prioritizes new mechanics and a simpler experience. If you are looking for an excuse to visit the world of XCOM again, or seek a simple entry point to the series, Chimera Squad can be a good choice

Chimera Squad feels like an experimental game in the XCOM franchise, and that is very welcome. Although not every change and addition worked in here, I still appreciate how bold they have been with this particular smaller title.

Unfortunately, the experience is severely hampered by constant technical issues that leave me with the belief that it was rushed out to release

Despite some changes, XCOM Chimera Squad cannot be considered a true sequel to the series, and gameplay improvements are not enough to prevent it from becoming repetitive.

You’ll probably extract some enjoyment out of Chimera Squad, although you’re likely to find just as many problems to complain about along the way as I have.

It’s XCOM but less intimidating and overwhelming.

XCOM: Chimera Squad is a great game, all told. It's a cheap, fairly lengthy campaign that manages to be both familiar for fans of the series and offer something new and fresh to the XCOM universe.
