TheWeek: The new video-game allows players to embody an ex-SWAT specialist in the year 2027, and grants them unprecedented decision-making abilities as they navigate the futuristic world
On its own merits, it's one of them, yes! But sadly because it's not a mainstream title too many people will miss out on the masterpiece.
The original Deus Ex says hi
I was going to say the same.
Well its groundbreaking to those who havent played the original deus ex. Once i get my new PC, im playing the original. Bought it couple of months ago on Steam ;)
While it is very good and I'm enjoying it immensely it seems to me its just lots of games pasted together. Two parts MGS, one part Splinter Cell, one part Bioshock and another of Mass Effect and even a dash of Crysis 2 with a drop of Riddick all expertly crafted together. I'm on the last mission, I think, and I've not encountered anything I haven't seen before, what makes Deus Ex good is combining it all in one package. Ps. I love the boss battles, gives it a nice change of tempo.
The first Deus Ex already has this formula though. MGS did release before that but this game is more like the first than a mash-up of others
agreed, except for the boss battles. I just feel like Deus Ex is missing the "wow factor", it's very good overall, but I never needed to stop playing just to think about how awesome what I just did was. It's still one one my favorite games this year, it's good to know there's room for improvement.
Good recipe. I also noticed some Batman: Arkham Asylum touch. Tasty!
for me it is nothing special
Groundbreaking no, a great game yes!
