Worth playing?

Was thinking about renting this, but after reading reviews, not sure whether it'd be worth it. I enjoyed the Mass Effect series as well as XCOM: EU, so is it worth checking this out? And the achievements seem easy enough too.

Everything is easy beside "Vigilo Confido" achievement, managed to get it by doing the DLC. Which was Hard, but easier to do the main game. The worst thing about this game is the AI for your squad is dumb as a bag of bricks.

I honestly really enjoyed it and I was very much prepared to write this off for marring the good name of the X-Com series (conveniently forgetting the spin-offs in the process). Then I played it and found a surprisingly good TPS. It's got an interesting plot, some nice twists, solid gameplay and generally well developed missions. The only problem, as mentioned, is the squad AI. Now they're not terrible as some people make them out to be, they're just very simplistic. You need to babysit them a bit - tell them where to take cover, order them to move to new cover during a fight when things get bad at their previous position and make them constantly use their abilities. Otherwise you'll get overrun pretty quickly.
