    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.

    Fun Game, not as good as HR, but it's still very good, the campaign it's a little short though.

    While I enjoyed the last game, Human Revolution, I felt that the developers didn't quite have the horsepower and technology available on XboxWhile I enjoyed the last game, Human Revolution, I felt that the developers didn't quite have the horsepower and technology available on Xbox 360 to really do what they wanted. You could tell they had to cut corners on certain aspects of the game.

    But Mankind Divided is a full realization of their vision for a new Deus Ex and it really shines overall. The gameplay and atmosphere are some of the best I've encountered this year. It all really fits into this world they built and nothing is out of place. They somehow managed to make the quest for information a main focus in the game and it's so fun to explore for laptops to hack and to find random bits of info on the enemy you just knocked the F out. You really feel like an augmented detective/assassin and just learning how to operate within the confines of the game world is a real pleasure.

    While you DON'T have to take the stealth route, some of the levels are extremely hard if you try to shoot it out with everyone. The enemy AI is hit and miss but they're smart with grenades and generally overwhelm you with numbers. Plus the stealth augmentations are just plain cool and turning on your stealth field to get the jump on someone and taking them down with the one hitter quitter NEVER EVER gets old.

    In conclusion this is the best shooter RPG game I've played since Fallout 4 took over my gaming life and if you enjoy that type of game Deus Ex provides a really fresh take on the genre. It's like stepping into the Matrix universe (the good one, not garbage Zion) and kicking ass and taking names while uncovering crazy conspiracy plot lines. Great Xbox One game.

    When this game first came out, I listened to the critics and regret it very much. Talk of a disappointing ending, short gameplay, smallerWhen this game first came out, I listened to the critics and regret it very much. Talk of a disappointing ending, short gameplay, smaller game world and location were all false in my mind. A very polished game and a great sequel to the first. My only critique is that the expanded augments were unnecessary. I don't think I used a single one, but I only played through it once and the new augments could be used if you are trying to get through the game a certain way (i.e. guns blazing, stealth, no kills, etc.) All in all, I do recommend this game, don't listen to the negative hype and I hope that they decide to continue the saga.

    Unparalleled atmosphere, art and storybuilding, but forgettable story and lacklustre gameplay.

The story was a bit underwhelming and the ending could have been a lot better. Gameplay and combat were fun for the most part and the setting is great. Graphically it wasn't terrible but it did seem a bit dated. I do think the voice acting could have been a lot better. Overall, a game that is probably worth buying but isn't as good as I thought it would be. 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
