    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.

    I was sold on this game in the first 20 minutes of the game. The music along with the new selection matrix and the setting. my god, I don'tI was sold on this game in the first 20 minutes of the game. 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.

    Attention to detail in levels is jaw dropping. A worthy sequel to Human Revolution. Unfortunately, third person shenanigans are in this gameAttention to detail in levels is jaw dropping. A worthy sequel to Human Revolution. Unfortunately, third person shenanigans are in this game too because Human Revolution was universally acclaimed. Let's hope Square Enix greenlights a continuation of this story. Expand

    Not a bad game at all and given the fact you can pick it up these days for £5 it is well worth playing through. It does have it's problemsNot a bad game at all and given the fact you can pick it up these days for £5 it is well worth playing through. It does have it's problems though, there's too many cut scenes, it jumps into 3rd person when your doing certain things which is just pointless and some of the abilities are way to overpowered. That being said I got over the cut scenes and you can stay clear of the overpowered abilities and have a game as challenging as you like! it also has a decent story, some good characters, some decent side quests, good weapon customisation and plenty of different ways to play the game.

    - many approaches
    - on a few missions, choices
    - a few side quests are excellent, well-written

    Cons :
    - the main story is far less interesting and epic than the Human Revolution one.
    - loading times are too long : when the game is launched, 8 screens are displayed during 45 s before the game menu ! And loading a game or the loading when changing areas is about the same time. These loading times are not caused by my disk since my storage is high-end : Samsung 960 Evo 1 TB.
    - game cut in small areas like Thief. Very frustrating when used to open worlds
    - Prague is a too little town, only a few streets. It seems a village and not a major city.
    - A few textures are low resolution
    - Bad optimization : stutters even on a high-end machine and after many months after launch
    - End disappointing
    - bad feeling weapons : they feel underpowered

    Is was one of my most awaited game and it is a "wet squib".
