Another great Ben Croshaw review.
How I feel really, not as good as the first but still one of the best games in years
Huh, this one was actually more of a real review than a satire! I usually watch these jut for the entertainment factor, but he made some good points in this one. Case in point: I hate when games give you the option to invest all your levels in hacking (or "charm" if it's a fantasy game), sneaking, or other non-combat skills, then they put you up against a boss that can't be taken down using any of these skills you wasted your points into. There's a reason I always go the full-attack route: it's usually the only viable one. Unfortunately, it's also the most boring one... Deus Ex still sounds like a really good game though. If I had more money in my gaming budget I'd have bought it by now, but my next game is Dark Souls... Maybe I'll pick this up when it's cheaper.
What does he mean it's disappointing that 'you can't kill bosses with hacked turrets'? I had a fairly weak-in-combat character so I carried a hacked turret around with me and killed a LOT of enemies by setting it down, including a boss. It's really not hard at all to do. Not a very good review.
