I really wanted to like this mod...it gave me that sense of being small, of being the underdog against a global conspiracy.
After playing human revolution and feeling rather let down by the "he went there and did this and I over explain everything" storyline, I was hoping this mod could give me what I was hoping for...I could nitpick about the questionable translation, but I'm not going to because in the end the conversations are at least tangiable...No, what really dissapointed me about this mod were the amount of stupid decisions the creators made that just destroyed the gameplay. Allow me to explain...

there were a few niggles leading up that bothered me slightly, but I was willing to look past them...scenarios like: Run past this turret and soak up bullets, or spend 3 mintues using this box and pushing it along for cover...or, run into this hazardous area full of spiderbots to get the re-breather that you need because some weird stuff is draining your Bio-Energy...just little annoying things that take away your choice, and don't make good gameplay...I merely noted them, reminded myself this is a mod, and simply let it go, still trying REALLY HARD now to enjoy the game...then I get told I need to fight my way out of a situation, with a fuzzy effect on my screen, agaisnt MJ12 soldiers, MIB AND a security bot! With NO EMP whatsoever!! I could barely even see with the stupid effect on my screen, let alone fight off this army! Not to mention there's something about the combat mechanics that feel rather clumsy, even for Deus ex standards. Headshots don't seem to count, the innacuracy and recoil of weapons seems a bit much...Even when upgraded to medium, it was still like starting out on the lowest skill on the original deus ex...only with added recoil. There wasn't even an option to sneak around them! It was at this point that I stopped forgiving these ridiculous design decisions and un-installed the terrible mod!
