In the augmented future of 2027, biotech firm Sarif Industries is ransacked by terrorists. Six months later, Adam Jensen, Sarif's head of security, and augged head-to-toe without his consent in order to save his life, returns to work and is tasked with getting to the bottom of the attack. Getting there, though, it seems the orders are coming from further and further above.

Title
While leagues behind DX1 in terms of storytelling and ambiguity, the gameplay has never felt better than it does here, with some of the tightest stealth ever seen and a cover mechanic that doesn't completely suck. This is probably my most replayed game of the last five years, even with a pace that was clearly butchered by some behind the scenes politicking and company deadlines. Indeed, the Director's Cut commentary is mostly filled with musings about the limitations of their schedule and of the game's engine, which is a shame because I stand by this game warts and all.

The Missing Link is inserted badly, though.

Title
One of the better sci-fi stories in gaming. Overall a very balanced, nicely done game. Maybe got a bit too boring towards the end.

Title
Solid gameplay yet has some disappointing parts
played it on Give me deus ex difficulty, and i didn't feel much difference between difficulty levels, because the game never let you to go rambo at all. Since it is a stealth game, i feel like that's not a big deal and also don't wanna blame about being so.

The gameplay itself, is not bad and solid. The cover system really does nice job here, for both combat and stealth, and like that, the Exp, Aug, lethal / non lethal, and pathfinding, also makes the game immersive and enjoyable. The gameplay itself is the best part of the game, and I believe many others would agree with that.
By the way, balance between Augs is hard to tell it perfect I think, like Lung Augs for "immune to gas attack" + "more sprint time" is kinda useless.

Next is about the design of the game. As you can see, there are so much people talking about "The Piss Filter", which means the game's yellow-themed design, and I can tell I agree with that. I believe the stereotypical Cyberpunk color would be blue, or kind of like that, but the game designers chose the yellow - especially gold - and I believe it can be little bit annoying, or can be felt to mismatching with the overall atmosphere of the game. except from that, other designs were not bad. my favorite part of the game's design is animations of Adam, his action animations - takedowns and wall punching - are very satisfying.

Now let's talk about some cons of the game.
the first thing would be boss fight being lame and disappointing, Adam's Typoon Augmentation is mindlessly strong to be able to grind all 3 bosses to dust. and even if you don't use such overpowered weapons, bosses' patterns are still simple enough to be seen stupid, also the only thing you can and should do is just shoot until they die. This makes the boss fights really disappointing and stupid, considering the original deus ex had more variety for boss fights like "killcode" or just running away.
Such simplicity and lack of variety is also can be applied to the whole game's level designs, since the game encourages you to sneak and stealth ( especially you are going non-lethal run ), I was little bit disappointed thinking about first two games' freedom of solution depending on player's preference.
Also character growth has decreased since there are no weapon skills and no proximity weapons, but I don't want to blame about that too because at least weapons are more balanced than they did before.

for the last, game's plot and immersion were not bad. I think there are not so much I can tell about it, but as the franchise did, city levels are designed well and interesting. exploring the city itself was enjoyable.

So, as a result, I did enjoyed playing this and I will give it 3.5/5, for its solid gameplay and not bad immersion.

Title
Very Metal Gear-esque gameplay, visuals, also the cheesy storyline.. All in all an enjoyable game with a few bugs that should have been taken care of but were dismissed.

YELLOW PISS FILTER. that outta the way, the design of the city is cool, i actually am ok with a lot of the writing for once, the story is not that bad, the range of choices for how to do operations feels nice, the augments are cool, combat is fun (and melee combat)

7/10

    I as really enjoying this game until I ended up having to do a mission in a police station (if I remember correctly). The mission went sideways and when I exited the building, the officers immediately gunned me down. I respawned in the exact same place and was immediately gunned down again... And again... It was a while later that I decided to try and use my 'cloaking device' (or whatnot) that finally allowed me to be able to move on. A very frustrating experience. Otherwise, it was a decent game!

      could not disagree more on the ugliness take. i think this game is aesthetic af with its gorgeous interior architecture designs and expansive yet lonely cityscapes. even if you wanna argue that it's the ugliest ps3 era game, is it that much uglier than most of the puke-brown AAA run-of-the-mill of that era?

    Pretty good but a no-kill run doesn't feel as great as it did in the original.
