Adam Jensen was hand-picked to safeguard the secrets of America's top biotech firm. But when a black ops team breaks in and kills the scientists he was hired to protect, using a security plan he developed, he is thrust into a conspiracy shrouding mankind's future evolution.
I... can't... stop... PLAYING... IT....
JESUS! I've spent 18 hours within 24 hours PLAYING THIS DAMN THING! I've never been this addicted to a single game before, it's just too good to ******* leave or take a break from. The atmosphere, story, voice acting, graphics (minus some crappy facial animations at times, like some woman sounding as if she's really sad but her face looking like she's ******* happy), soundtrack, gameplay are ALL ******* BRILLIANT!
This is much better than the first game IMO, it keeps the old things but also makes them better and adds other new, really useful things too.
+Many different weapon upgrades
+Hacking is actually fun now
+Many different ways to augment yourself that are all viable
+A few different routes to take & ways to tackle the objectives thus allowing you to play how you like
+Exciting combat & very immersive experience
+Interesting story and many mini choices to make that can affect the storyline in various ways. A few moral questions arise.
+Beautiful graphics and sound design.
+A varied amount of locations.
-Forced you with auto health regeneration & 25m radar. Previous games it was an optional aug. They should have stayed with that. Makes the game easier.
-No lean keys, instead you have to use a 3rd person cover system. So you can see around corners without having to expose myself ie makes the game easier. It also makes the Stealth Enhancer aug useless.
-AI can behave stupidly on more than one occasion.
-Allowing you to choose your own playstyle was crucial to the Deus Ex experience, but somehow they didn't figure out that assigning different amounts of XP to different playstyles encourages you to play a certain way. Thus discouraging player choice.
-Readables are all about science & not the more interesting subjects like philosophy, theology ect
-Many things you can't interact with, emphasis on graphics means alot less objects with physics which hampers the realism.
-Bosses have no backstory & you are forced to kill them. Sneaking players can't even hack turrets or get passed.
-Lame way to pick your 4 endings.
Just passed the game and i can say that its worth its price, the story is very interesting and deep, and when you finish it it gives quite a lot to think about, in a philosophical way...
(felt that it could be a bit longer, but thats because i was playing it every day lol)
I recommend it for sure!
Great game, excellent story and great score and characters! The cyberpunk ambient is very realistic and really awesome! Good longevity, and a great work of modeling and texturing by the eidos montreal band. Very good game, perfect prequel for the original masterpiece.
