I really like this game.
It's pretty damn cool.
I even did a YouTube video about it, Youtube.com
The developer is a cool guy as well, you should follow him on twitter.
The problems this game has are either insignificant or entirely subjective, so I say.
It's ******' great.
So, if you like great games, pick it up.
If you like dumb games that suck, then don't.
Because this game is smart, and doesn't suck.
Sincerely, your faithful reviewer
Contrary to what others may think, I see that this mod had a lot of research, time and effort put into it. The addition of so many custom objects and props, textures and re-skins etc. create a very chilling environment worthy of Lovecraft's praise.
In case others do not know, and are wondering upon the origin of this mod. It is based upon "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" by renowned horror-writer HP Lovecraft. The story is all in there, and it is definitely worth a read for those that love a creepy story.
Being me, I took note of every detail (and found a few humorous easter eggs), and while granted there were a lot of things that could have been refined and fixed up I understand that it was a student project, and thus has it's limitations to how much effort can be put in before a certain deadline. Regardless of this minor constraint it has achieved greatly and does justice to Lovecraft's Mythos and legacy. A welcome addition in my eyes.
Good effort, I am impressed. Lovecraftian mods are few but this one like so little others succeeds where many have failed.

Amazing zombie survival game with very high ambitions. Few zombie games in this day and age are about survival instead of just shooting a bazilion zombies. Stockpile food, build a safehouse and bunker down for one of the best zombie apocolypse games ever! That is, when it is complete . . .
Got hooked by this alien right after having seen the thumbnail already. I wasn't impressed to see one of the founders was working for Vice. This is really off-the-wall, original, controversial, damn artsy overall and reminds me for some unknown reasons earlier works of René Laloux. (go figure?)
This is a simply superb mod that takes what Deus Ex got right and then augments the hell out of it with an exoskeleton of dazzling, modernized visuals, innovative and unique game design, sing-in-the-car good music, and a tight gem of speculative-fiction story that does justice to the original (and that is some hard justice to do!)
Personally, aside from a full-blown Project Eternity-style, kickstarter initiative afforded the laser-guidance of Warren Spector, heuristically retooled by Harvey Smith himself, and infused with Sheldon Pacotti's sci--fi writing gems, I think Deus Ex: Nihilum is tough to beat for a Deus Ex 1 sequel.
