jup another thumbs up for this, I was a bit hesitant because I love the world-scape managment. But I think the city scape has now more use then it was in xcom2. Back are the anarchy levels (wich were in xcom EU), wich I think works better, so you need to deal with each district.
The combat is streamlined, yes its a fixed order, but also the enemy has now a fixed order, so you can anticipate wich enemies you need to kill first because they are closer on your timeline. Yes, a death forces you to restart the level, but frankly that was always how I played xcom in the first place, so no change for me. Also the levels are smaller, so most of the time you can extract your soldiers before someone bleeds out.
for 10 bucks? I think its a steal.
