    Great sequel, but may not convince non-fans

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the fourth main installment ("main" meaning I'm not including the mobile spinoffs) in the Deus Ex video game series. Your enjoyment of this game will probably depend largely on your enjoyment of the prior games in the series, specifically Deus Ex: Human Revolution from 2011, given that DXMD is a direct sequel to DXHR, taking place a mere two years after the events of DXHR. Much like its predecessor, DXMD has you in the role of Adam Jensen, a human who has, without his consent, been upgraded with experimental mechanical augmentations. Following the fallout of DXHR, mechanically augmented humans are being cast out of society and discriminated against by natural humans. Adam's goal is to expose the conspiracy of the Illuminati, who have orchestrated the events of DXHR and DXMD from the shadows. To accomplish this, Adam has access to a wide variety of augmentations that allow you to modify your play style. You can choose to upgrade your weapon proficiency and defensive capabilities if you're looking to play the game as a first person shooter and go head on with enemy combatants. You can choose to upgrade your hacking abilities to change the environments in your favor and against the enemies. You can choose to upgrade your stealth capabilities to completely disappear from sight and never engage your enemies at all. You can also mix and match any of the above to discover your own preferred play-style. The keyword there was obviously "choice." That's what the DX games have always been, or at least tried to be, about. DXMD is a worthy follow-up to DXHR and would easily recommend it to a fan of the DX series. Non-fans may want to watch some videos of various playstyles to get a feel for whether or not they'll enjoy it.

    Good game with a few flaws

    This game was one that I had heard many good things about so I decided to give it a try. One thing that I am not a fan of is first person shooter games. This game is a pseudo-hybrid as it has elements of first-person and also third-person views. I mention this because I might have stayed away if I knew it was going to be first-person shooter-ish. That being said, the game is very good. The graphics are good, the game play is challenging and there are a variety of ways to complete many of the missions. The power ups for weapons are pretty decent too. The game reminds me of a cross between Metal Gear and Bioshock. The negatives are few but must be mentioned. The voice acting is ok for the most part but the lead character is very bland and since he has so much to say it can get annoying listening to him speak. I also noticed some issues with the sound track cutting out during some scenes with dialog. Also the sound track was pretty uninteresting so don't look for anything special here. Many have said the story wasn't as good as the previous game was. I think the story is good as far as stories go for video games. There are branching paths as well so your experience may vary from someone else. Since I haven't played the last game I can't offer a comparison but I can say that this story has some meat to it. All in all this is a great game with some replay value as you may want to try playing through a different way for a different outcome. I think the game will take roughly 15-20 hours to complete depending on you level of experience with these types of games.

    It's really good, but there is a catch

    The Good: Deus Ex Mankind Divided is a very good game that has excellent storytelling and characters. The gameplay is relatively smooth, except for the occasional drop in framerates when running around the multiple locations. I feel the levels are well designed and give the player a multitude of options when completing objectives. I found myself constantly exploring and more often than not being rewarded for that curiosity. The Catch: The story ends very abruptly. It feels as if the story was intentionally left open to later be addressed in DLCs. My advice to game companies would be to release complete stories in the core game and introduce "NEW" stories in DLC. I hate being left on the hook with plot-lines on TV Shows and movies and I hate it even more in $60 video games.

    A game that stays true to the franchise and genre

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided represents what I feel is sometimes a lost art in games today: A compelling story, an immersive world, and a sense of ownership over who you play as. DX:MD stays true to the franchise. If you like the semi-open world, multiple path approach to the previous DX titles, you won't be disappointed. The game has something for everyone whether you prefer combat and weapons upgrades, or stealth and world exploration. That said, like other similar titles, you need to be willing to invest into the game. If you don't have a ton of patience, or just want a pick-up-and play experience (while the game does offer an arcade mode for this), you might find this title is not for you. It certainly is a game for the hardcore gamer. The only knock against it is that some of the animations and voice acting can be rough around the edges at times, but is easily forgivable as you get to explore what is quite a thought-provoking story and believeable environment.

    Good But Overly Complicated

    The premise of the game is very good in which you act as a secret agent involved in uncovering plots against people who have had their bodies augmented by artificial means. The game requires a lot of searching for devices and parts to upgrade your augmentations but that involves a lot of back-tracking and hacking into secured areas or computers. All of this slows down the pacing of the game and the combat isn't on par with other FPS like COD or Battlefield. You do get to use your augmented powers which are actually pretty cool, if they are available when you need them. The graphics are very good with responsive controls. I tried to like the game but everything seemed like a chore with all the emphasis on searching, talking to other people, reading text on hacked computers, etc. The game isn't quite my cup of tea but if you like a more RPG-heavy type of game, then it is worth getting.

    Cyber-punk Dystopia for the modern age.

    There's nothing like imagining yourself as a powerfully augmented, multiple abilities wielding instrument with both morality choices and approach options to either clear a room out with deadly force or simply stun/knock everyone out. Although this game may not be for everyone and sometimes the primarily first person perspective with the cover system being the only in game non-cutscene time where you get a 3rd person view. This game allows you to explore a possible future where augmented humans are treated largely as a minority whom are not to be trusted and looked at with disdain. You could draw quite a few parallels to current day politics and issues with how we treat groups of people whom we view as other. It has pretty good replay value, interesting npcs to interact with, and is a technologically enhanced beautiful albeit somewhat depressing world to explore and have some fun in.

    I wanted to like this game being a huge fan of the series but I just couldn't. It actually made me very angry playing this game. Now, I am very sad Square Enix can't even provide us an ending to this waste (which btw doesn't exist in the main game) that was supposed to be released as future dlc. SE have canned this and probably have canned the series as a whole because of the mistakes they made with this game. Well what is wrong you may ask? Well the game is a bit of matrix nerd cheese mixed in with extremely too much going on with far too many choices and the most convoluted and confusing story line ever! Save yourself $20 and don't get this. The End.

    This game could have easily achieved better ratings if the ending did not feel so rushed. In fact, the story was only fairly decent. However, the side quest missions were fantastic. The lack of boss battles also felt very puzzling to me. Although I did enjoy the final battle, minus the rush to credits. Another aspect that I could not stand is the fact that this game (especially in the final chapters) requires a lot of backtracking. I won't spoil the ending chapters, but backtracking during this segment becomes very stressful and seems like a poor design choice. That is not to say that I did not thoroughly enjoy this game. The AI is pretty smart on higher difficulties, the abilities are awesome, the stealth mechanics are better than most other stealth action games, and the graphics are fantastic. Despite some of the issues this game has, do not skip on this game.
