The stealth is pretty basic for a game that clearly emphasises it. The AI does not bother to look for you further than where they've seen you, so most encounters are solved by hiding in a bin or cupboard somewhere (they will never, ever check), and will soon forget about you entirely. Factions don't even appear to interact with unconscious or dead bodies, simply ignoring them.

Any chance to be clever is sucked out by game rules that are needlessly strict and basic. Dirty blue-collar uniforms, such as that of a boiler maintenance man, still anger wastrels should you walk past them during the day. Should you anger them, you'll be called a "murderer" no matter what you've done. No matter what faction you upset, they all have the same groupthink mentality and will run after you, with any other passers-by immediately doing the same, all conveniently having a weapon on hand. This doesn't make much sense in the civilised parts of the game world, and there's not much you can do about it save duck into an alleyway and sit down to read the paper.

Frustrating health system: you will spend a lot of the game having to pick berries from bushes. Apparently nobody keeps medicine in their homes -- not even joy -- so if you get memed with unavoidable damage from a certain cutscene, you're screwed.

The story isn't that deep. Expect to see the same variation of the train flashback about a hundred times. It's repetitive. Story NPCs are so disjointed from every other NPC in the world, down to behaviour and rationality, thanks to frustratingly basic AI.

Game is littered with bugs, such as broken mouse-based fast travel (apparently that UI works with the keyboard only), NPCs teleporting upon trying to talk to them or sitting at weird angles, etc.

Espionage is utterly broken, especially with ARC as you can steal techs with your several agents every 5 turns with the right policies (or do a coup d'etat in 7)

The game has so many redundant buildings and units in the tech tree that your build menu just ends up full of stuff you won't need. This is very true if a city gets traded through war in the late game, so enjoy having to build a dozen things just to get your production back and having to sift through a dozen obsolete unit types

It is such a lazy Civ5 spinoff that it retains all the bugs (exploring units triggering the war prompt by trying to walk into borders, etc)

Diplomacy is still basic and civs have no distinguished personality. You just get whined at the entire time because you did/didn't do a thing; the "you need more land" and "no, not like that" griping when you settle somewhere gets me every time

Beginning of the game seems quite well done with scavenging for artefacts, but games are so much quicker than mainline Civ at standard speed because it's just a matter of rushing techs and building a thing. There is no polished endgame.

If you are looking for the sequel to Theme Hospital you wanted since 1997, the answer is yes

With every new scenario pack I become more and more disappointed

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Firaxis, fire Aspyr and learn to build cross-platform so you don't end up with out-of-date linux builds. If the one guy working on tf2 can do it, so can you
