Ok, it was Easy mode, but even then it’s ridiculously fun-hard. Final Battle Description Below
It’s a massive group of set piece battles, against the toughest units the game has to offer. Well, really EVERYTHING the game has to offer. Giant Robots, those damn Chryssalids, the Baskin-Robbins 31 flavors of Muton, the Codexes, and THREE Avatars. (thankfully not all at once). I lost half my squad just from sheer weight of fire.
And if it wasn’t for the fact that I need to write a review, I would immediately jump back in. That should tell you something.
