    Mankind Divided is a wonderful, powerful game and a great addition to the Deus Ex mythos with rich, fully built characters and an amazingly immersive world. If it wasn’t for the many missteps that the marketing department took, you would probably have preordered this already.

    While Human Revolution was a promising title with some glaring issues, Mankind Divided is the work of a mature development team that has had the time to fix their weak points and improve on their strong ones. The result is a quality cyberpunk spy adventure with strong visual and level design, true opportunities for players to exercise choice, and some really cool cybernetic toys to play with.

    Mankind Divided has its flaws, but its charms far outweigh those issues, especially for fans of Human Revolution.
  4. Overall, Deus Ex is perhaps less ambitious in its storytelling than its hot button ads might suggest, but is still an exemplary example of open-ended problem solving gameplay.

    Makes huge strides forward, is held back from total greatness by two things: a story that falls just short of the shading around it, and bugs. [November 2016, p72]

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is still a Deus Ex game through and through, even if it doesn’t always manage to hit the same highs as its predecessor. But for all its faults, its numerous other triumphs made it utterly compelling to play through until the end.

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the epitome of the phrase, one step forward, two steps back. I hate comparing it to Human Revolution as it was something special, but Mankind Divided feels like an underwhelming, repackaged experience.

    That crook Sean Murray should take notes, THIS is how you create and market a game. Everything that was advertised is here and then some! TheThat crook Sean Murray should take notes, THIS is how you create and market a game. Everything that was advertised is here and then some! The action sequences are phenomenal and the combat feels perfect whether you're playing the game stealth or going in guns blazing. It's been a terrible last six months for game and Deus Ex has broken the drought! Expand

    I love this game so much. I wish more games that are fully open world learned from this game that densely packed hubs are far more interestingI love this game so much. I wish more games that are fully open world learned from this game that densely packed hubs are far more interesting than desert planets/planes. The meat of this game is everything around the main story. The main story has some interesting beats, but it's really in the side quests and exploring the hubs that you get the cyberpunk experience in this game. And it's all wonderful. One of the few games where I do ALL the side quests, every time I play it. The DLCs are also enjoyable and offer more of the same quality.
    The only real downside to this game is that the main story feels incomplete. It feels like it's waiting for a part 3 that we might never see. Which would be a shame because this series still has a lot going for it.

The story is interesting but not as engaging as Deus Ex Human Revolution. The game mechanics are also pretty much the same as in the original game. Graphics are good but not spectacular by any means. The game play was not always smooth on my PS4 Pro. It is music that is really stands out in this game in my opinion.Side missions do not feel relevant. and it does not seem like the decisions made in the game make much difference on the game outcome. If you liked original game you will enjoy this one. I would like to play Deus Ex 3 once it comes out. The ending of the game leaves unanswered questions which can only be explained in Deus Ex 3.
    Overall solid 8 out of 10 for me.

La última misión es dePor decisiones de tipos enchaquetados que no conocen la industria, este juego ha sido recortado en su tramo final. La última misión es de risa, y el final es: ¿cómo? ¿así acaba? Si te centras en el modo historia tienes 3 misiones. Un completo desastre, realmente, y decepción absoluta. Es una pena que una saga así termine mal, pero Square Enix, entre otras compañías, se está encargando de ello. Expand
