The cyberpunk RPG series Deus Ex isn't "dead", according to the studio head at Eidos Montreal. The last entry in the series, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, came out nearly two years ago.
I’m hoping for a proper ending to the Jensen narrative.
Yes, all the little bits teased in Manking Divided are pretty big.
Better writers is the first thing I would focus on.
Personally I think Jensen is softer than a memory foam mattress. He's too nice and the voice actor doesn't do a very good job of making Jensen seem like a badass that matches his aug capabilities. Whoever writes his lines needs to be replaced. Jensens ways weird things. He just doesn't talk like a normal person would. I would like to play as a likeable character in the next Dues Ex because the gameplay, secondary characters, atmosphere, exploration and especially the music are all top notch in the new Deus Ex games.
The “Deus ex” that was great is dead. The latest Deus EX games have not come close to being as good as Deus Ex (2000).
Doubt any team out there can match what Warren Spector and Ion Storm unleashed with Deus Ex.
Either your tastes are very refined, or you are a "Old stuff is always better" kind of person Both games were pretty great
Yeah, nostalgia is clouding your opinion in a massive way.
Played them all, the old ones were great for their time but not good now as far as mechanics go. My favorite game is from 1999, but tons of great games have come that evolve past that game in tons of ways, just they weren't as meaningful at their time of release as that game was at that time.
What game is that, out of curiosity?
Planescape: Torment The game BioWare ripped off of up until mass effect 2.
I played Invisible War first in 2005. Then I played Human Revolution in 2011. I like it so much that I bought the original game a few months later and then I went back and played HR. The gameplay, augmentation, and exploration is like the original, just updated. Although I think the plot, writing, and atmosphere were much better in the original. Eidos Montreal did a good job of carrying the torch. Now if they could make a more dystopian and plot twist filled story and add a better main character than Jensen, that would be great.
Having played the original in 2000 and now playing these new one, I still go back to the original. The latests ones don't have the lasting appeal. Ive gone back to replay the orginal many times and even invisible war, not so much with the newer ones. The Story in DX is miles better than the new ones.
If you prefer invisible war then something is clearly wrong with you
Never said I preferred invisible War, just the Original.
Would've been pretty questionable to just walk away from it after that ending.
Mankind Divided is great, love the smaller open world, full of secrets and stuff to do. I wish there were a few extra side quests, though. Story DLCs were fine, but kind of short. And i do hate Breach and hope "It's Not Dead" doesn't mean anything new related to Breach (or similar online mode, revolving around random lootboxes).
It’s a shame Mankind Divided underperformed financially it was a gem.
Mankind Divided was a bit of a letdown compared to Human Revolution The hubs felt smaller, the stealth wasn’t as good this time, the story seemed pretty straight forward, didn’t feel we had as many places to explore and it felt like it was missing content. I mean the System Rift DLC should have been in the game, it was about Francis Pritchard one of the main characters from Human Revolution.
Still haven't played MD yet but it's in my queue. HR was my first Deus Ex game.
Loved the new games. Heck, even loved Mankind Divided, my first experience in the franchise was playing Deus EX: Invisible War on Xbox and basically trading it in after a day of frustration. Human Revolution was a fantastic soft reboot of the series for me pretty unfamiliar with what the franchise should had stood for. But I think as an open world first person RPG experience with multiple ways to problem solve, the new Prey really took the crown and that's what any future games have to contend with.
