    A dazzling tech-noir showcase of cutting edge writing, extraordinarily satisfying gameplay and an unrivaled, uncompromising vision of the bleak future we’re inevitably spiraling into. William Gibson would have been proud.

    A far more colorful game than Human Revolution, even though the futuristic version of Europe is quite different from the dystopian depiction of Detroit anno 2027.

    Mankind Divided rewards exploration and respects your choices throughout its hefty campaign. The city of Prague is absolutely amazing with great details and visuals. The gameplay is also exactly what you expect from a Deus Ex game.

    The game mechanics all work remarkably well, from hacking (despite it being a little repetitive after going through the same process dozens of times) to the cover system, to the various forms of combat, resulting in a game that has a poignant narrative whilst still being enjoyable to play.

    Gameplay is what truly makes Mankind Divided shine, and here, any problems with the racial story is made up by having a complex and immersive world with level design purposely built around the idea of Deus Ex‘s choice gameplay.

    Video game narratives can be great, but nothing will surpass the stories we create in collaboration with a game – emergent, unscripted moments that pop up unplanned and create lasting impressions, and that’s where Mankind Divided excels.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided could – and should – have been amazing. All the ingredients were there: an intriguing premise, engaging and mature narrative themes, solid gameplay foundations and a beautiful look. However, the rushed plot, nonsensical conclusion, under-developed characters and continued shortcomings in combat mean this is a title which fails to live up to its potential.

The music along with the new selection matrix and the setting. my god, I don't care that the story was dummed down. it makes for a more concise narrative that doesn't get to big for it's own britches.

    Even Jensen's Voice Actor is doing a better job in this game than he did in Human Revolution. He actually shows a little bit of range in his line delivery which is nice for our traumatized and war weary protagonist.

    Великолепная игра! Которая по сюжету рассказывает о событиях которые могут произойти с человечеством в будущем!! И заставляет задумываться!!Великолепная игра! Которая по сюжету рассказывает о событиях которые могут произойти с человечеством в будущем!! И заставляет задумываться!! Повсеместная кибернетизация! Люди устанавливают себе биомеханические части тела и всевозможные улучшения организма! Мир разделился на модифицированных и чистых людей!
    По геймплею всё также супер! Тут и отличный стэлс(можно лазить везде незамеченым никого не убивая) куча разных способов прохождения! Уровни кишат скрытыми ходами и обходными путями! Тут и залихватский шутер! Модифицируй себя круче чем терминатор и вали всех направо и налево!))
    Минусы у игры только технические! Это оптимизация и производительность! На старте был просто ужас! Сейчас вроде норм...раза 4 вылетала за прохождение!
    Всем рекомендую! Мало таких одиночный игр осталось!

    Underrated game: story, setting, gameplay, re-playability, acting and technical implementation are just great.

    The game can be easy or challenging depending on the chosen difficulty and play style (stealth lethal, stealth non lethal, full combat).

    I paid it 10 bucks (with all DLCs) and it lasted 70 (quite enjoyable) hours: totally worth it. Bugs are barely noticeable.

    DLCs not being integrated in the main game is just a minor annoyance, they totally worth it, and micro transactions are just useless, you can totally ignore them: I just don't understand all the grief on these issues.

    If you loved Deux Ex Human Revolution or Dishonored get it on sale: you won't be disappointed.

It is pretty much the same as Human Revolution with the exception of a few new game mechanics. The graphics are great. The map level corridors feel restricted. A Deus Ex game with an open world gameplay like Batman Arkham Knight would be so cool. Expand

    - Has intrusive DRM garbage called DENUVO
    - Microtransactions yuck!
    - Dated graphics and not well optimized for PC
    - Story loses any appeal after the first few missions and all characters are boring and not interesting
    - RPG elements of the game are not that well implemented and some of the upgrades are not that useful

    I'll not even speak about technical problems of DX:MD. They're obvious.

    They completely ruined the message of original Deus Ex. Mass
    I'll not even speak about technical problems of DX:MD. They're obvious.

    They completely ruined the message of original Deus Ex. Mass augmentations? Ridiculous, if you ask me.

    The first game was based on this, real world. Not the fictional one, like DX:HR and DX:MD. The first game was about people and their real problems and not fictional, anime-styled "augs vs normal people". Any mention of real life politicians, bankers etc was also carefully erased from this one.

    Silly and hollow game. Highly recommended for fans of Metal Gear Solid and similar japanese crap.

Then you're walking around Prague, and there aren't even any bars, which is highly unusual for Prague. You can scale buildings, which goes unnoticed by the many police officers, and steal beer from fridges? You're a badass AUG and walking is most of the action you get. I bailed when I needed a keycard to get into a room. This is not an action game, its a lame RPG. Expand
