This DLC adds some a lot of new options for the look of your soldiers, some good and some not so good. Experienced best if you dont take yourself too seriously.

Humanity's last hope. A select group of elite, super-human killing machines with access to technology far beyond the reaches of modern science.

And it just wouldn't be complete without bad haircuts and clown makeup.

There are plenty of new customisation options here, but they lean more towards the 'circus freak' end of the spectrum rather than 'alien-stomping badass'. I got it for free as part of the reinforcement pack but tbh there's only about five pieces in there I'll ever use.

It's a good DLC with a lot of thought and creativity put into it - and it's good value, if you're looking for this kind of thing - which is why I give it the thumbs up. However, it's not for everyone. Definitely watch some videos or google the kind of new (cosmetic-only) items you'll be getting.

Tons of new deco options, and enabling separate arm customization is fantastic

While it's nice to have extra customization options, these seem like assets built for a completely different game that was scrapped, and rather than throw away all that work, the devs said, "Here's an idea, let's repurpose it all for XCOM DLC!" That what it seems like, anyway.

Love the game but if I'd known what the DLC was going to be, I wouldn't have prepurchased it.

I preordered XCOM2 and the Season Pass under the guise that it would feel like XCOM did- with packs like Slingshot, and Enemy Within. but with 2 of 3 DLCs already available to the public, I'm regretting my decision more and more.

Anarchy's Children is perhaps the first DLC I've bought that I've gotten NO value out of- ZERO. All of the "hairstyles" and helmets don't fit the game thematically, and look like they were salvaged from some rejected Mad Max spinoff. It leaves me to wonder if the Developers just had some spare resources laying around and threw a price tag on it, or if they've just stopped trying after releasing the base product.

Avoid this DLC.

I recommend XCom 2 wholeheartedly. Unless you liked running around in raider armor all the time in Fallout 4, I do not recommend this "expansion" wholeheartedly.

Firstly, it's all aesthetics, no gameplay value.

Secondly, the aesthetics don't mesh at all with XCom's paramilitary atmosphere. It's ALL joker masks, mohawks, and clown paint - frankly, stupid stuff that has no place in a tactical environment.

Hey, if that's your cup of tea, go for it. Your game, your money. Just not for those of us who like immersion.

I liked the customization options this pack gave me. There were a couple of great pieces, and the rest of it was good for themed gimmick soldiers.

With that said the negative feedback this DLC is getting is warranted - in a way, at least. Firaxis read the crowd poorly. They thought their fanbase wanted campy comic-book alien killers in silly outfits running around like back in 1993Com, and they were wrong. Most people seem to have wanted super-tactical milsim stuff and that's okay too. Just be aware that the stuff in here is very well made and pieces like the gasmask, welding masks, tarnished power armor and so on are super good even if you're going for a more serious look on your soldiers.

Firaxis gave us 100 pieces of customization in this pack for five bucks. That's not nothing, especially considering there are many companies taking five bucks for a single recolor. This pack isn't for everyone, but there was clearly a lot of love put into it and it isn't nearly as bad as people are trying to make it out to be.

Overall, I recommend you look at the screenshots and think about whether or not you're the type of person who goes for this stuff. Looks fun to you? Pick it up at the price of a fancy take-away coffee. Looks god-awful? Stay away from it. Simple as that.

Who thought it would be a good idea to let XCom Soldiers look like Mad Max raiders?
I regret buying the Season Pass, not only useless and ugly but also unfitting customization options.

If that's the look of humanities hope... let the Aliens wipe us out.

This is a cosmetic dlc, no impact on gameplay. Even though this dlc doesn't really fit into the xcom world very well, I still really enjoy it and it's really cool to see the different outfits that can be made up of this dlc and the origional props. I got bored of seeing the slight varients of the 1 outfit with or without sleaves so it's a very nice variety. I think the plate armor versions aren't very good, or a mod/bug has prevented me from using them all. If you really care about immersion you probably won't want it.

Not as bad as people are saying it is. It's extra cosmetic stuff. I recommend if you have $5 in change from another game, because why not? I got it on sale the weekend i posted this so just wait for a sale if anything. Definitely not worth more than 5 or 6 bucks.

In short this DLC adds extra customizations for your soldiers (not that many for the price they're asking for).
The models/textures are great and all but in my opinion it simply doesn't fit the setting of the game.
This is a perfect example of a DLC that should be free and optional.

Skip this one since you can get better customizations with mods for free.

Wow, what a waste of time. These ridiculous pieces of various trash and scraps of leather you can strap onto your team of super soldiers has NOTHING to do with any of the carefully tailored asthetic of the XCOM series to date. If anything, all this DLC does is force you to edit the appearance of new recruits to get rid of the loin cloths, vests and pigtails that they now tend to come pre-equpped with, and put them in something more appropriate to a battlefield.
When comparing this to the incredilbe Enemy Within DLC of the first installment of this reboot series, this waste of time and money is especially shameful. Not just for players but also for the developers who could have been using their limited time to create something players may actually enjoy instead of this steaming pile of nonsense.
Four-thumbs down. :-(

Adds some customization options totally out of the game theme and totally not worth the price.

This DLC feels incredibly lazy considering that those customization can be done by modders for free, and that the long war team is creating mods that are far more promizing than the 2 DLC we've had so far. The SCOM 2 season pass is actually a pretty big disappointment for me (and apprently not only for me, seeing those reviews).

Unless you absolutly love those customization, or if it happens to be on a heavy discount, I'd not recommend buying that DLC, it adds nothing worth to the game, no additionnal content, just customtisation most of us won't use.
