(Note: I don't actually post on the Video Game forums that much, but I can still post here, right?)
So, anyway, a few things I wanted to say:
First of all..if you haven't tried Deux Ex, just do it.Seriously.
I'm very picky with my games, especially the ones that claim to have an "epic story" that's not just a token or an excuse for you to bash heads, and yet I can safely say that it's the best game I've played since..uh..probably since Mass Effect 2.
As I'm sure many people have already said, one of the things I like the most is that it doesn't think you're an idiot, there's no hand-holding in the missions.
It feels like a Hitman game (well duhhhh, Eidos) with a bit of MGS and Mass Effect sprinkled on it.
The second thing I have to say is a problem of mine...I posted a thread about it, but to no avail.Red Orchestra 2.
I've rarely come across a game that has divided gamers so much.You have people saying it's glorious, and gritty, and that the guns feel powerful, and that there are real tactics involved as opposed to the usual twitch shooting and so on..
But then, you also have people saying that it's really unstable, that it looks terrible, that it tries too hard to be realistic, taking away some of the fun, that the whole thing is very bugged and that you have to struggle to actually do something instead of running around the map like an idiot.
The last point, I really didn't like.It reminded me of the stupidly big maps in BFBC2 where you had to spend half your life running through an open field until you actually arrived somewhere useful..it was, by far, the most frustrating aspect of that otherwise good game.
So, can anyone confirm/deny any of that?I really need to know before they release the game on Zavvi (where I'm going to buy it from, IF I'm going to buy it), which is like in a day and a half from now.
