War of the Chosen turns this game into a 'zombie fest' with tons of 'easy' shots to increase the body count.
The original Xcom 2 is fine without the expansion pack. I hope it runs on more than the devices on this list.
25 dollars. No wonder we can't get more paid games. The original 1 were like 9.99 I believe thia is hard pass for the time being.
