The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

The characters were hard to identify with as their personalities seemed forced and plastic. They’re stereotypes too which I thought would make it easier. I found myself disinterested in their stories. However I did overcome that wall a few hours into it.
Gameplay itself was great, it felt good to maneuver and the weapons / abilities were well balanced. Being an XCOM game I didn’t doubt it would be. I was hoping for more options for the side missions though as there didn’t seem to be any resource management or chance of failure if you sent squads away on missions. It was free items and squad members essentially which was disappointing. The main story was pretty linear for the majority but made up for it with the actual progression and last third.
Overall it’s worth playing as not too long of a game.
