Plughead.net give five ways Deus Ex 3 is utter crap... or not.
1. "Why is there only one (or perhaps two) apartment in an entire block?" Sorry, what? Maybe the reason you cant access other apartment is because there no need to?! 2. "There’s no stacking of small items in the inventory." The guns are smaller than you think, which is why he is able to hide them. Or it could be like some games; you know where you can "hide your helmet" even though it has great stats but you hate the look of it. And Items do stack. And I love a little bit of realism in games. 3. "Sprinting" As you said, he can be upgraded. To be fair, he has been augmented, and for all you know, augmentation can be very heavy. 4. "Pre-order exclusives just get worse and worse, don’t they?" Uh... how about "dropping" the items? 5. "The tranquiliser gun" They're wearing freaking armor. Of course its going to take a little while. In the wild, it takes a good 10+ minutes to knock out an animal. Be glad this tranq takes around 10 seconds. All your reasons are just bad.
In response to your response to #5. You'd think in this futuristic setting some multibillion dollar multinational pharmaceutical company would have developed a faster acting anaesthetic, wouldn't you? Of curse if you shoot the guard in the foot it'll still take awhile to work. Quick tip for the author. Aim for the carotid. It'll carry the anaesthetic straight to the brain.
I'm sorry but how the heck is that possible? Speed of the bloodstream is same most of the time so it'll always take a while for a person to faint after get shot in certain areas. And you can always put them down instantly by a headshot while using tranq gun.
Actually they do have fast acting anesthetic! they put some in your I.V. and tell you to count backwards from 10. by the time you get to 6 your slurring words and by 3 your snoring! So 10 seconds in the game is right on!! The only instant acting knock out medicine is a brick to the head!
Well I love the game. Games with this Depth with this level of fidelity are rare these days with all the cookie cutter stuff going around. The only thing I do not like about this game are the FRAKING ANNOYING AS HELL LOADING TIMES. If metro 2033 can load in less than 4 seconds (literally while the dude is just beginning to read the paragraphs it says press a to start.) http://www.gamefaqs.com/boa... this game should be a piece of cake but it isnt, it takes upwards of a minute and a half to 2 sometimes. Absolutely Rediculous. Aside from that one thing I love it.
The only thig i don't like about the game is the shooting controls and the fact that you can't change them. After all it is an FPS.
Shoot them in the head with the tranq rifle and it knocks them out almost instantly. Never had a problem with it so far (of course, it's still better to get up close and take them down).
This just reminds me of one of those articles that tries to go against the grain. It's a good game damn it, but nooooo there's always someone out there finding incredibly trivial things to complain about.
The tranquilizer gun takes effect instantly if you score a headshot. I actually prefer the delay for limb and body shots. I can shoot one enemy in the leg, reload, and shoot the second enemy in the head. Both fall at the same time so neither sees the other on the ground.
I agree with you there, the game has an assortment of tactical choices, you sir, do I what I do.
I do that too, I also got the upgrade you can buy for the tranq gun, it tells you where to shoot on the body for what effect, neck for fast, body for slow.
There are a lot more than one or two apartments and apartment buildings per block (in Detroit anyway). You can stack some small items. Sprinting is kinda lame even when upgraded. The tranq gun is insta-knock out if you hit them in the neck or head.
I agree with sprinting though. I can sprint for 60 seconds in real life. But in the game, six seconds with augmentations,are your serious. But other than that, the game is awesome.
number 3 is my only problem with the game, you don't feel augmented... sprinting is one thing but, without the no-fall-damage-upgrade you die by jumping from the first floor... also needing energy to take out an opponent from behind is kinda lame, I'de guess any trained law enforcer could take someone out by surprise.
I think the point of the energy being used to knock peeps out is less about realism and more to prevent you from just waiting behind a door and insta-knocking out every guard from behind until they're all gone. It just forces you to vary your strategy.
bubbles 4 u my mate
Shoot people in the head with a tranquilizer and it renders them unconscious almost instantly.
Its funny that ppl seriously refute these issues. I think u deserve the hits simply because its hilarious. Some reasons r because its too realistic and some because it isn't. But, the point is made. Its a great game and difficult to find issues. My number 1: a few glitches that forced me to replay a few hours.
No game is perfect and those who scored 10 are very good but not perfect. The game is ok and is fun to play.
Very very long loading times frustrating how when you due it still takes firever to load the last check point. Shooting feels weak this us by no means a shooter enemies have perfect aim it's very bad AI. Boss battles are frustrating and no one can deny that they are boring,dull and frustrating. So while the game is good it's in no way a 9/10 kind of game. Also graphics are dated too. Disagree all you want if you played the game everything I said is a fact
This was my fav game this year so far. This, Portal 2, and inFamous 2 are my top 3 thus far
def my fav game out this year so far
I'm rating this as one of the best game environments of all time, very close behind GTA IV's Liberty City and Red Dead's wild west setting. OK the cities in Deus Ex HR do have loading screens but the environment is still very big, intricate and just simply amazing and bursting with atmosphere.
It's my top game so far this year as well. Heck, I'd put it up there with the best games this gen. As much as I enjoyed games like Portal 2 and Dead Space 2, Deus Ex has just pulled me into its world on a whole other level. Don't know if it will beat out Skyrim for my personal GOTY, but it's pretty fantastic.
i love when people give their top game lists; they start off with a couple of truly great games and end with one that should never be spoken within same sentence as the previous ones.
@whydoyouask If you are refering to infamous 2, you need to get your head out of your ass. If you are talking about portal 2, you need to get your head out of your ass.
I love when people shoot down someone else's opinion, and then state their own opinion as fact. OT - DE:HR is awesome. One of my favorite games this generation.
hey, not our fault that u have no good exclusives to play on your shitbox LMAO.
@Ravens And that's exactly why he made that comment. Seems like an inferiority complex to me. He's probably never even played the game.
How come when ever a really good game comes out there are always articles saying why it sucks? I think that's the best way to find a great game, look for articles complaining about it, I mean I've never seen an article saying "5 reasons why Vampire Rain sucks".
WTF is Vampire Rain?
You DON'T want to know. Imagine something vampire-ish that wanted to be Metal Gear/Spliter Cell at the same time (minus MG awesomeness). It looked like something out of Metal Gear Solid, but then, just you start to realize it isn't...you face is sucked right off your skull. ...Just don't.
You know the article is a joke right? If you actually read the first few paragraphs the author says he made the title just to score extra fanboy hits. He loooooooves the game and admits that these 5 things are the ONLY things he can find to nitpick if forced. Had the same reaction as you, then read the article :)
wow, i really need to read this, i cant find one bad point about this game apart from the slow loading screens on PC and its now fixed
I can't believe I gave this site a hit...Deus Ex is definitely not rubbish. If the author let these small things that aren't even really faults ruin the game for him then I feel really bad for him. The game is Awesome. Besides Infamous2, portal2, this is a contender for my GOTY so far.
this article is crap, not Deus Ex
Even though I agree with a lot of these statements, I still really enjoyed the game. Despite its flaws!
Good point about sprinting, its just silly how you can't sprint worth of shit. I would like to stack at least 5 grenades or so, cuz atm its just ridiculous. Also I don't mind that tranq darts take just few seconds to work, but the problem that i have is that a lot of times my shots with tranquilizer simply don't register, even when it was a clear hit, which is very very annoying.
I think there is an augmentation that corrects accuracy (LOL). But in any case, I usually aim for non armor plating on the suits. Nailed a thug in butt at one time (LOL).
WHY DOES EVERY GAME THAT GETS PRAISE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE CALLED OVERRATED BY SOMEBODY...
Because they don't want to admit they're not sophisticated enough to enjoy a deeper gaming experience.
Because thats what the community does? Its stupid there are people out there.
Some people don't like to see other people enjoy what they don't enjoy.
It all comes down to taste. Elitist fans don't help much either. Please note that I am enjoying Deus Ex and while I don't think it's a 9 or a 10, I certainly wouldn't call it rubbish. I'm having fun with the title and since I generally despise FPS titles, that's saying something.
Yeah i agree i wouldnt give the game that high of a score.. it has faults that bug me a little.. but it still surprised me
I hate the word "overrated." People use it as an objective way to say "I don't like it." When someone says, "this game is overrated." They are really saying I didn't like this game, so everyone else should stop saying it's good." Only review I read for Deus Ex was a Gamespot review and it scored an 8.5 - Though i havent completed it (Jensen Just landed in China at my last save), I definitley think it deserves that score from the 3-4 hours ive put into it so far. It reminds me of some sort of Metal Gear, Mass Effect, and Fallout hybrid..
1. What game has several apartment complexes and you can go into every single room? Just the graphical overhead/load to load all that into ram is quite a feat, especially when the detail in this game is freaking amazing. This is dumb. EDIT - Adams apartment is riddled with detail, you can go up and look at photos and see pieces of clocks (he has a clock building hobby it seems) and gears, very tiny stuff. Most impressive. http://www.ripten.com/wp-co... 2. Many items do stack...What is he talking about? Ammo, health items, energy items, hacking items, etc. Only things that don't stack are guns and grenades. 3. The sprint is annoying that it runs out in 2.5 seconds, but it also comes right back in 2.5 seconds. So he gets "tired" fast but recovers just as fast. In real life, if we sprint for 30 seconds and get tired, it takes longer than 30 seconds to recover and spring another 30....so technically, your average movement speed is pretty quick. 4. Exclusives in general suck, that is true. However, doesn't impact the game at all, and MANY games pull this shit. 5. Um, the tranq works instantly if it hits the neck or head, JUST LIKE DEUS EX 1. Just gotta have skill. Lame article.
The answer to your first question is either of the recent Fallout games.
I don't recall several apartment buildings in FO3 with all rooms accessible. And while FO3 rooms are decently detailed, they aren't as detailed as DE:HR for sure.
Avast detects malware on that site.
Avast detects malware on EVERYTHING... It actually pissed me off so bad yesterday I uninstalled and got AVG.. When a stupid program things that 1 out of 5 games I've purchased is a virus..it really pisses me off.
AVG has a fair amount of false positives too. It thinks Portal 2 is a virus.
Both are from Czech Republic (and you don't want to know how bad security is here), get the hans off these things! : D
This was very lame.... It seems that this guy is really trying to find negative things to say. However, he failed given that none of those reasons ruin the game. EPIC FAIL!
he was trying really hard. read the article again.
I haven't played the game, but video feed is totally underwhelming. I'll get around to playing it, but until then I'm skeptical.
For a guy with a Big Boss avatar, you really should check out Deus Ex, sooner rather than later. Again, judging by your avatar, I'd assume your a fan of Metal Gear, and likely a fan of the Sci-Fi Stealth/Espionage genre, and Deus Ex delivers that type of gameplay in gobs :) Dont be fooled by the mediocre looking graphics, it's an awesome game.
Tbh these are pretty weak complaints. The one i warm to most being the sprinting and starting off with OP weapons. In DX you could run like the fucking wind. I am enjoying the game but there is a lot of flawed implementation of gameplay mechanics here. It's almost just damn stupid in some areas. Hacking. Even if you have found a code to unlock a door, it's pointless to use it if you can hack said door. Do you get xp for using the code? no. The xp reward diference between killing and non-killing. There are arguments either way, but imo, you don't reward moral choice one over the other. You feel the need to hack everything in sight and non-lethal your way through the game. Takedowns-EnergySysterm-Lack of Melé weapons - This is all interlinked too.
lol...I said screw the non-lethal choice and I go for the headshot everytime, or a physical takedown. So much satisfaction in that.
will deffo be my choice come second playthrough.
The point to using the code over hacking is convenience. Also, even though hacking is pretty easy, it can be failed. The protagonist is ex-SWAT. He is trained to use the least amount of force necessary to resolve a situation. It makes sense for him to use non-lethal measures if he can. Do you really need melee weapons when you have super-strength and blades in your arms?
Jesus...what else will get born? viva la evolution...what a stupid article...
most of these reasons were pretty lame, seriously ppl need 2 stop making articles bout why this game sucks! these are soo flamebait.
OHHH NOOO U DIDN'T ***crowd holds me back***
OMG... ok lets be honest there are many things you can fault Deus Ex for and say its not perfect. So on the surface this article had a fighting chance...then I read it. EVERY grip this tool has is about game play design choices with the exception of the pre-order stuff...and even that was handled in a very specific way..i.e. designed. Deus Ex is not perfect, and parts of it are putting it bluntly lacking...but the examples given by this author ARE rubbish and hardly reasons why anyone should call out a game. "You can't stack small items" REALLY? That is your bullshit gripe? lets see you load up your pockets and then stack the small objects and see how well that works for you.
Here's some negatives: No preservation of upgrades and inventory as an option on a second play-through?... His physical abilities at default are rather pathetic, as well as battery usage (almost as if it's just there to make the game artificially longer...) At WORST I think, to use a comparison, it would not be unreasonable to expect him to wield most, where applicable, of all the perks available in Call of Duty games in the form of augmentations (by default even). Sprint is a ridiculous upgrade... they DOWNGRADE characters just so you have room to upgrade back to normalcy...?! I believe another developer could have done so much more with the other various aspects of the game, i.e. hacking, stealth elements (should take note from MGS4 or even UNCHARTED for god's sake). Though, it did turn out better than I expected. Side Note: anyone experience an EMP glitch where your HUD never reboots?! Second playthrough and reloading the game or completing levels or text dialogues/cutscenes do not remedy this. Might have to start over again, in which case I won't be.
so correct me if I'm wrong but Deus EX HR is GOTY material. I actually passed on it but got a chance to see 30 minutes of live footage (while me and my buddy lay dead on the Red Orchestra battlefield) and i have to say it's very very good. I'm gonna pick it up as soon as i finish Two Worlds II!
