    By daring to make a statement, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided succeeds in being a nuanced, mature gaming experience that pushes the medium forward in major ways.

    Overall, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a remarkable experience despite the performance issues and odd multiplayer mode which is basically an excuse to incorporate microtransactions into the game. It’s one of the best stealth titles I’ve ever played and isn’t daunting or frustrating like, let’s say, Hitman.

    Narrowing its scope may make purists moan, but we've never played a more enjoyable Deus Ex. [Oct 2016, p.91]

    The Deus Ex series has a great storyline, and it paints a compelling, serious vision of the future that we should all consider to be a warning, given our own divisive political climate. I love how a video game can bring up a serious subject and hold up a mirror to our own times. But the ending makes it feel like this story just isn’t finished, that it’s simply a midway marker to a larger, more weighty tale with a full and satisfying ending. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided takes us only part way there, and we still want to get to those enemies in the shadows.

    I'm left hoping that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s developers have an aggressive post-launch plan to continue the game’s story beyond its surprising endpoint. It’s a mottled cherry dropped on top of a game that otherwise makes for subtly major evolutions of action-RPG spaces, and for a world as interesting as Deus Ex’s, it would be a crime to leave it where it stands for another five years.

    Mankind Divided is neither as revolutionary as Deus Ex was 16 years ago nor The Witcher III and MGSV were just last year. That doesn't change the fact that it's a brilliant Deus Ex, giving you a rich, exciting cyberpunk world, a compelling storyline within it, and the freedom to explore it almost any way you wish...In terms of both stealth and combat it's a big improvement on the last game, while it still has the deep storytelling and lavish background detail we've come to expect. If you're in a mood for a dark, sci-fi conspiracy thriller with some meaty themes, put those mirrored shades on your face and get stuck in.

    Eidos Montreal needed to build on the success of Human Revolution, instead of merely trying to replicate it wrapped in difficult politics. Instead of being the revolution we so hoped it would be, it’s simply left us divided.

    Hello internets like Deus Ex Mankind Divided B-rod here back in the saddle again to review a game. Deus Ex series is for a special kind ofHello internets like Deus Ex Mankind Divided B-rod here back in the saddle again to review a game. Deus Ex series is for a special kind of gamer, one that is into heavy science fiction, lots of complicated dialog, and one that loves crawling through man-sized vents. I am new to this series the games always eluded my radar one way or another I always managed to just miss them. I will say being missed out on Human Revolution so much of the background to this game made little to no sense. Now they explain it in this 15 minute Spark Notes version of what happened. Yet… somehow with Adam Jensen’s monotone voice describing everything that happened my eyes kind of glossed over and I was day dreaming. Honestly if someone can describe what happened in the first game I’d love it. I digress. Deus Ex Mankind Divided takes place in a world where people are augmented and the normal humans hate the **** out of them. I think is a kick ass concept that hits a bit close to home with all that is happening. You are Adam Jensen an augmented badass who sounds like he smoked 150 packs of cigarettes because someone dared him to. This new terrorist group of augmented people are out there, and they happen to do the terrorist thing of blowing **** up. It is up to Adam Jensen to solve the mystery any way he can. Which leads into some interesting twist and turns, and ends kind of abruptly. I was having fun then boom game winning trophy winner is me.
    The game allows you to play three different ways, but only one ever worked for me. You can play completely stealthy saving after every room and meticulously looking for any short-cut you can take. Or you can play balls to the wall killing spree, and pray that the guy you killed has enough bullets so you aren’t completely **** by the next room. Last, which is what I played you can do a mix of both being all sneaky like until you are seen then balls to the wall. The game never punishes you for killing people which is super great because killing is just amazing in video games. I took out almost an entire police station to steal some evidence, and I’m still the hero. Remember kids killing cops is okay only if you really need to steal from them. The leveling up is complicated at first, but makes way more sense as time goes on. The final thing I can say is **** this final boss. They are such a pain in the ass if you are like me and suck ass at stealth. It took me multiple tries to take out the **** and honestly I’m fairly sure I took him out by accident. Just to warn you.
    Overall the game looks great and plays like very few shooters on the market. I will say if you are looking for something different then the Call of Duty formula this is your game. It is a dense fiction heavy story telling RPG that doesn’t disappoint that lets you play as you want. I enjoyed the hell out of this game with no prior engagement to the previous games so new comers are welcome. Maybe wiki some of the backstory details. I give this a 4.5/5.

TheI must admit that I didn't play through Human Revolution but I will be after play this. I'll get the negatives out of the way first. The graphics aren't great on console, the voice acting is a bit wooden and the character models are aweful but it doesn't matter because the game is excellent. The way it lets you choose how to play rather than forcing you to go head on, makes this game a breath of fresh air.

    The story is quite good as well but not it's strongest point. Mankind Divided is just good fun. Using the new augs changes up the gameplay.

    One of my favourite games of this gen so far.

    I have beaten the game 4 times now. And let me tell you, I have had to reset my Xbox at least 10 times due to it crashing. At first I thoughtI have beaten the game 4 times now. And let me tell you, I have had to reset my Xbox at least 10 times due to it crashing. At first I thought it was at certain times. But that is not the case. You can tell when it happens because the frames start dropping to a snail. I played it so much because I'm a huge Deus fan, but this is beyond acceptable. This game is great until the glitches start happening at the worst moments, like trying to hack a drone before it spots you. I give this game 6/10 because I know it tried. But it's so graphically inconsistent I don't know how to diatribe it. Oh and the pedestrians repeat their same lines. Have fun doing something next to one for 5 minutes. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Игра - жалка копия Deus Ex Human Revolution. Невнятный сюжет, который не вызывает интереса. Главного героя окружают невнятные, нехарактерные персонажи. Прага - полное коридорное убожество. Зачем вообще она понадобилась - непонятно. Остальные локации тоже невыразительные коридоры в которых ничего не запоминается. Русская озвучка временами так себе. Многие герои и героини говорят нарочито примитивно. Непонятно что может вызвать интерес после предыдущей части. Плюс анимация очень плохая и тоже местами примитивная. Таким образом игра не вызывает никакого большого желания в нее играть. Нет интриги, непонятно зачем выполянть пожелания и зачем дальше двигаться по сюжету, потому что гг никого особо не спасает, ничего толкового не расследует. Это провал( Expand
