This game is almost perfect. The freedom in playstyle is really great, the story is engaging, the aliens are really sick.
The only place I think it really falls down is there a) isn't enough side quests and b) isn't fast enough travel options so travelling through the map to do the side quests that are there can be a bit of a slog.
A great immersive sim with fun gunplay, an impressive amount of ways available of customizing your character (technician, soldier, psi-thingy, etc) that will change drastically how you fight the enemies as well as how you traverse the maps.
The plot is very, very good, it kept me really engaged throughout the game.
The game has satisfying endings that just beg for a sequel, it's a shame immersive sims are so undervalued in general.
This game is one of the top examples of the genre, right there with Deus Ex (the original).
