    Horrendous mouse aiming and a tiny non-adjustable FOV are just some of the wonderful features. This game is broken.

    This game may or may not be interesting/good. I wouldn't know as I've only played around 20 minutes of it. The mouse control/aiming is possibly the worst I've ever encountered in a game. I've playe...

    It doesn't quite live up to the original's story, but this is an exceptionally good game...and personally, I loved it.

    I should preface this review by saying that I am a big fan of the original Deus Ex (played through it several times + the sequel a couple times). In fact I consider it to be the greatest game ever...

    First off, one of the biggest mistakes this game makes is the spoken voices of the characters involved. They speak far too fast and it takes out any social involvement you might get in the game. It ...
