I tried to get into War of the Chosen twice and ended up parking the game both times. I think fighting the Chosen and the Lost is too much of a chore. Regular Squad versus Pod is the good shit, and to me the expansion gets you spending too much time doing not that. I'm now into a straight XCom 2 Long War run, and I am having much more fun so far.
Eh, the Chosen aren't that tough as long as you figure out how they work. Really the troublesome one is the assassin, and then you just bring battlefield scanners to see her. The other two are kinda weak, unless you happen to run into the summoner one in an underground level. The sniper literally never does anything, because you have to stand still in his sights for a whole round for him to get a shot off, which makes him useless.
The lost can get boring, yeah, although I enjoy just mowing through entire hordes of them.
In any case, for those who want to try this out, please note that vanilla Xcom2 is a bit... I dunno, underwhelming, I'd say, compared to Xcom with Enemy Within. War of the Chosen, however, makes it a fantastic game. Truly one of the better expansion packs to be made in a long time. (really I'd only put the Witcher 3's expansions above it, to be honest.)
Oh man I absolutely loved Enemy Within, but I have to disagree: vanilla XCOM2 is fantastic and every bit as enjoyable as EW. I have it on Steam, but I recently bought it again on the Xbox during the target sale just to play it on the couch
