Maybe it's just because I (like so many others) love Deus Ex so much and I'd hate to see ANOTHER sequel not be good enough, but here goes with the rant. Why does this have the same too-much-bloom, over-saturated-with-one-color look as the second Deus Ex (except it's yellow/orange this time rather than the blue of the earlier game)? Not that this comment makes any difference now, but any kind of overdoing on the art front just breaks the immersion for me. I'd rather have a game that's average looking, but focused in the design, than one that is sort of all over the place because the crazy yellow light is everywhere! And why are they talking about the game as if to a whole new audience. The only people who care about this game (far as I know) are the old-school fanboys. Any other tone than flat-out adulation for the original just raises alarms. :) /partial-irony PLUS it's a little early still, butthe graphics overall look a little dated; in fact the animation at one point looked like something from Matrix: Path of Neo with a little spit and shine (lots of shine) added to it. I know this whole post is unfair to the developers since the game is not even really out yet, :) I keep saying it because on one side I feel horrible because they are working hard to put out a sequel to my all time favorite/greatest game ever, but for the same reasons I just cannot cut back my feelings for it! This game better be effin' amazing! :)
by the way, you may have noticed that Adam Jensen is based on Jonathan Jacques-Belletete I read it in OPM
There's no way I'm playing this on anything other than pc! I want to turn off the "augmented vision", that puts that crappy highlight around everything, and I want much better graphics than what I've seen of the console versions. I can only hope that the pc version supports sli, and has a well optimized engine.
I loved the first two games, even if they did have their flaws. This one looks promising and I really hope it turns out to be a worthy successor to the old games. The art style certainly looks interesting and a lot more inspired than a lot of other modern games. I eagerly anticipate this game's release (pre-ordered) and I hope it gets appropriate reception. I especially hope it satisfies the fans of the old games.
Fans have to be critical, so I'll say right now that the visuals are a little sub-par, particularly the speaking animations. However, I still find the first game more entertaining than much of what is on the market now even with its decade-old graphics. The important parts are the story and the choices, and those appear to be flourishing.
It may have taken some to complete but it looks like these guys have really put their mind to it and this could turn out to be one of best games ever made since it's creator Warren Spector.
looking forward to this but unlike others, I just can't get the gold wash over everything, maybe I'll change ny mind when I play it.
i've preordered this. to be honest, i have kinda lost interest in it after it being delayed a few times. i looks like an interesting world to explore come august.
Absolute must get for me, knew I wanted it the moment I saw the first trailer. August can't arrive fast enough.
The art style is incredible in this game. And I love it's vision of the near future; so very different from now but completely plausible and believable.
