Game evaluation

After the game was released, most of the media received positive reviews, and the Metacritic media score was 78 points.

The following is part of the media evaluation content:

Although “XCOM: Chimera Squad” is a complete “UFO” derivative work, it is more like a new experiment far from the previous two games, rather than a proper sequel. This game adds bold changes to the original game mechanics and story, but only shows a thin change, rather than an overall change. The unique characters in the game are great, and the new ideas are refreshing, even if they sacrifice the deeper strategic choices and dynamically generated narrative content specific to the series that reviewers love. Fortunately, these changes did not make the battle of the game far away from the “XCOM” series, and the game mechanics that require repeated trials, even if it contains frustrating bugs and occasional mistakes, will continue the fun for a long time.
