Pretty good game

Summary: Pretty good game, but be warned, the Directors Cut has some video bugs. I have a I7 4770k, 16GB Ram OC'ed @ 2100 and a R9 290x Video card, yet the game stuttered slightly. Reading at Steam Forums the dev's fixed the original so it ran butter smooth. But for some reason when they did the DC, they reintroduced the stutter and haven't bothered fixing it.
Summary: If the dang thing didn't drop to desktop every 5 to 40 minutes of play, I'd give it a 5 star rating. As it is, the game is now on my shelf as NONE of the fixes I found on the web solved the issue. Wonderful game, from the time I was able to actually paly it. Perhaps when I upgrade from my NVidia 580 duel cards to the 980 things might work better. For now though I cannot recommend this game because of it's crashing issues on the PC.
Summary: I live in a place where internet is non-existent. I bought the physical copy thinking i wouldn't have to download the game from Steam. OH AND BEHOLD, installing the game off the disc did nothing, and I had to use 7gigs of my 10gigs I get a month via satellite. Thanks Obama.
Summary: Pro: more deus ex! Fun game, many many hours of play, sneaking, searching, discovery, and world to play in. This actually happens before the original deus ex, and you get to learn about hints of things to come, with some teasers. Con: Steam required. Do I even need to explain how its bad to require an active internet connection, the company to still exist, and to want to validate it, each time I play or re-install the game?
Summary: I personally didn't find it all that fun. Although, I only played a little bit of the beginning. I expected better graphics from Square Enix, but that doesn't mean it's not for everyone. Give it a try, especially if it's on sale.
Summary: But a far cry from the original. I loved the original, and it would be very difficult to live up to a masterpiece. Professional reviews for the game are very good, but I found it rather dull, and challenging to stay on task - too easy to get lost without any real direction or help.
Summary: Compare this game to other shooting game, I am not really that impressed. One thing that I find it difficult to control is the switch between first-person shooting to third-person shooting when you're taking cover on something. The control was a bit shaky and graphic was alright. Perhaps I got spoiled by other shooting games and this game did not meet that expectation.
