    Taking into account the small development group and the price, I'm hard-pressed not to recommend this game as a must-have.

    It's tough, it's overwhelming, and it'll break your brain, but E.Y.E is also one of the most creatively successful, conceptually lavish, mentally arresting games released in a long, long time.

    If you're bored of all those standard issue FPS games, E.Y.E. is definitely worth trying. Don't mistake this indie cyberpunk FPS for Deus Ex imitation, for it surely isn't. It has fresh ideas, vast well-designed levels, wide array of nice weapons, cybernetic skills and PSI powers and an interesting plot. The game is almost too ambitious for its own good, which makes it cumbersome at times and hard to approach. It has also some minor bugs yet to be squashed. But even with its flaws E.Y.E. is something very unique. [Oct 2011]

    An open-based action RPG where cyberpunk, Dune, Equilibrium and online grindcore meet each other, and they miss almost everything you would call 'user friendly' – to get the local rules and learn them properly often takes hours of frustrating gameplay. However, if you put your time in it and embrace yourselves with patience, you'll get rewarded with unmatched experience of the old school gaming.

    I'm sure there are people who will find E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy a very enjoyable title, maybe because of its complexity, its being "old school" in an always more console oriented PC market. The fact is this game suffers from so many shortcomings that it's really hard to recommend to anyone.

    E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy is the classic wasted opportunity due to the lack of resources and an insane ambition to try to cook too many meals onto the same kitchen's fire. The right dimension of this game should be that of a free mod: at 20 Euros, Steam 'shelves' are stuffed with commercial products much more worthy than this one.

    EYE's lack of inspiration is matched only by its ineptitude. [Nov 2011, p.68]

If you like Sci-Fi, FPS, RPGs and huge open levels then this game is for you. Though it's built on the older Source engine, the game world is simply stunning. What sucks you in is the atmosphere. It's truly a unique game world and will leave you wanting to explore the levels thoroughly. The RPG system is very deep. You can play your character in many different way depending on what build you like. Hacking, stealth, melee, sniper, assault style, ninja style, PSI abilities, cyber implants. The list goes on and on and on. One thing that stands out about EYE is that you can advance your character via both single & multiplayer. The coop is fantastic. The devs keep in good contact via the Steam forum for EYE and have vowed to patch and support their popular new game. This will be the best $20 you spent on a game in a long time! Expand

Perhaps the mostAs jpnole said, this game is a rare gem, a bit rough around the edges, but casuals should, and WILL definitely overlook this. Perhaps the most defining thing about this game is the deep story that delves into the psychology of humanity and more importantly, your character, which is apparently stuck in a mental limbo of some sort, trying to free himself while also searching for answers. The dark Hardcore Cyberpunk setting, music and characters all contribute to the overall feeling of the game and combined with the high difficulty, 64 player COOP multiplayer and the intricate RPG system this game is simply one of the best FPSs I've ever seen.. It has bugs, considering it was made by a very small team, and its translation is quite rough (though there are fan patches around that make it much better), but if you can overlook a few common glitches casuals can't take, then this game is a definite buy. TL;DR if you aren't a simple-minded casual and enjoy Hardcore Cyberpunk buy this game right now. Note I gave this a 10 to balance the score but considering it has a few rough edges it is a very solid 9.0. Expand

It's harder than your average FPS, it's much darker and the plot needs to be paid attention to if the player intends to understand what's going on. It is notorious that it's low budget, from the lack of voice acting in dialogues and the cheap looking menus, but all things considered it has lots of customization options, a lot of replayability (especially if you didn't get the true ending), and missions can be completed in many many different ways. And it has coop on top of that. Expand

However, it being insanely text heavy and the AI being a bit punishing make it hard to fully get into. So everything is stacked against the average gamer getting into it... "What's going on? What are all these weird ass menus and buttons? God, there's a lot of text in this game. Dammit I keep dying." yeah, it's not the best way to get people into it but fight through and there's a gem in the rough here. Expand

    This game has got lots of potential. The lore, the idea, the setting, even the role-playing system is beautiful. However, most of that is goneThis game has got lots of potential. The lore, the idea, the setting, even the role-playing system is beautiful. However, most of that is gone once you finally realize this is a game you'll work hard to understand.

    The font of the text is ridiculously small. And you can't even see it on a white background! Essentially you'll have to constantly make your way towards the screen to read it. This isn't so hurting to the story as the fact that the English is almost non-existent. Eventually you will stop caring for the plot.

    Enemies will spawn endlessly. At this moment immersion is gone as you put them down one by one and have no sense of achievement from any kill - two more will replace the guy anyways! There's no save option. You could be doing a mission for an extremely long time before you're done with it and if you quit your game, you'll have to restart it! So in conclusion, try this game out for some fun and if you're able to comprehend with some of the mechanics and have patience, but if not, don't approach it.

You get RPG elements ofE.Y.E. is a mixture of very good and very bad, so it scores a 5 for me. The concept is very good, though not unique. You get RPG elements of character progression and customization that are quite nice and diverse, and you get a mixture of occult and technology, which few other games offer (Clive Barker's Jericho is another). The mood is a strange brew of horror and dystopia that's well supported by an alien dialog and quirky soundtrack and it really works. The ranged weapons are very satisfying to use, being both precise and powerful. It feels right to kill someone with a single bullet instead of with a barrage that would shred an elephant. This was on the right track to becoming a very good shooter, but... the bad: It is very unstable. Performing simple things, like navigating the menus, forced me to reboot Windows 7. And I mean "big red button" shutdown, not a clean exit. I own a truckload of indie games and Source games and not one of the others does this. The interface is overly convoluted and frankly, unpleasant to use. It gets in the way of the game. Finally, the lack of polish, makes it feel more like a mod than a stand-alone game. A "version 2" of this game, with a streamlined interface and the bugs removed, is sorely needed to make it a viable contender in the shooter space. In its present state, it's a fun curiosity if you can get it on sale, but it isn't likely to make it to many people's favorites list. Expand

The buggiest Source Mod i've ever seen. Crashes, character resets, bugged scripts that make company impossible to complete. Unpolished models and ugly textures. Developers just released alpha version, sold some copies and now forgot about this nightmare. They promised patch and DLC 2 months ago and we still got nothing. Multiplayer is dead. The whole game is dead. Expand
