Summary: You have to authenticate with Steam every time you want to play. So if your internet is down on a rainy day better have a back up plan because your not playing Human Revolution. There should be a warning because I would not have purchased this if I had known. I buy a game on disk so I can play anywhere, not just around a internet connection.
Summary: What ever Deus Ex: HR was, it was not a continuation of the Deus Ex Franchise. I knew that coming in and thought I would try it out. I think they did a great job with the UI and the graphics. I dont like the point system they used to replace the canisters you needed to find to upgrade your bio mods, it simplified it too much The story elements and music (compared to the original Deus Ex) doesn't even come close. Its a pretty cut and dry story with not much depth.
Summary: If you have slow internet or were expecting to install this straight off the disc, you're highly mislead about this game. Requires you to activate through Steam and download it via Steam. If I had known this before I bought it, I would have just purchased it on Steam. Guess I'll have to wait to download it when I can get somewhere with decent internet access. Thanks for nothing Square Enix.
Summary: I own the first one, the original and made it about 1 hour into it and quit. It was way too boring. So, now I wait, and get this one, and the same thing. This game is just way too slow. The "action" is lame and comes in spurts. There is way too much time spent think things through and trying to open doors using the stupid hack program that brings all action to a dead stop. The whole pacing is thrown off and there is no flow to this game.
Summary: I can play Crysis 2 and Assassins Creed Revelations at full tilt on my box, but this game is chunky and not optimized correctly for the PC. Plus you can tell it's a port but the stiff movements of the character. Probably a good game for a console but skip it on PC.
Summary: I think the game was well built and mostly well designed, I just thought there were too many puzzles and the hacking was annoying. Not enough shooting and too much puzzle solving ruined this for me. Nice graphics though.
A frustrating Metal Gear game pretending to be an Action RPG

Summary: First off, I'm by no means a hardcore gamer, but even so I've never encountered a game that was so annoying so early on. Even the first few missions required dozens of attempts to advance sometimes a mere few feet before being shot down in one or two hits. I bought this based on the tagline that it was a balance of action and RPG... big mistake. The RPG elements are meaningless.
Throughly research the game before purchasing so there will be no surprises

Summary: I bought this game because it had a good story and stealth. I wasn't able to progress much in the game because it was in first person. I just couldn't get used to it and it made me dizzy so i had to stop. The graphics are really well done. When it came to stealth, I didn't like the fact that you could only use a certain amount of stealth moves at a time until you find away to recharge. I felt that the game-play was a bit restricted because of that.
Summary: Is this what passes for a good games theses days? I got this to see what all the hype was about, and was disappointed. I played it once on hard, as stealthily as I can. There's no reason to play it again after you beat it. The game it self is fine if there's a scripted fire fight you can't avoid, but once you can sneak around your enemies, it becomes boring. The side quests are slow paced detective work (find out this, find out that) that are boring.
