If you have ever wondered what would happen if you spliced a brutal extraterrestrial war with a cop procedural TV show, XCOM: Chimera Squad is your answer. All of the frustrating, heartbreaking stings from this franchise are replaced with fast-talking, cringe-worthy squadmates that inexplicably forget about two games worth of conflict in the name of fast food jokes. Yet, somehow, it works. The smaller, more focused levels feel snappy and the lower stakes, city anarchy over worldwide destruction, lets you enjoy this weird poly-species ride without the burden of base-building and squad perma-death. Missing 99% chance shots still sucks though.
