Great game! (Deus Ex in War)

The Good

  • Fast action.
  • Eye candy graphics.
  • Breathtaking cinematics. (Best I've seen for a FPS)
  • Realistic environments (rain, leaves, shots, explosions, etc).
  • Great weapons and Bio-mods.

    Unlike some of the latest FPS games the graphics are not the only aspect of this game you're going to enjoy.

    The action is great (similar to Call of Duty) throwing you in the middle of battle, with explosions everywhere and your team mates running, shooting and dying.

    The story is simple (like in most FPS games) but it's very well given by the NPCs that populate the game.

    If you Liked Deus Ex (not the sequel... the original) you are bound to like the Bio-mods in this game and the extra fun of being a nanotech enhanced soldier.

    The Bad

    You have to take the bitter with the sweet...

  • The objective marker (nobody is so dumb to need it)
  • It's too easy at times (average gamer will complete it in a few hours)
  • The HUD is too big even in 1024x768. You can tell they made this game "after" the PS2 and XBOX ports (I hope some day the developers stop doing that, it just ruins the game)
  • The AI is not great by todays standards (at least not by mine)

    The Bottom Line

    Go get it if:

    You Liked Deus Ex 1 and hated the sequel, Snowblind has some elements from the Deus Ex universe and it's a completely new game.

    You Like Cyber Punks and FPSs with something more than just "shoot everything that moves".

    You have an "up-to-date" system.
