Dull, Bland, Boring

Summary: If, like me, you don't regularly play RPG games and you haven't played previous Deus Ex games, then I suggest avoiding this title. I bought it purely because of the critical acclaim and the passion from its fans. Here's what I thought of it... I thought it was incredibly boring. The dialogue, the voice acting, the story, the environments, the weapons, the gameplay mechanics - all of it just really, really mind-numbingly dull.
Summary: Ok I am reviewing both this game and Flipkarts service which made this great game available to me. I first played this game at my borthers place where I was staying for only a week earlier this year and had loved it. Unfortunately for me tho I had played only about half of it, so when I saw it on FP for this low, I instantly ordered it.
Summary: This game is too damn difficult to play especially the AI. If you have the patience to go through the same level all over again, then please by all means do so. If you talk about the graphics and game-play it is superb. The 2 stars has been given on the difficulty level of the game esp the Bosses. The game is good so goes with story line but patience is something that you must have.. to play.
Summary: Sure this game has some wonderful ideas, and that is where it stops. Deus ex was a masterpiece but this new version is cliche, boring, covered with token mechanics, has a stupid moral choice system so half way through the game if you decide to change tactics you can't because you would ruin your progress...and the plot line. There should be a law against plot lines you can see coming from fifteen miles off while it is pretending to be an intellectual challenge.
Summary: So far I am pretty disappointed in this game. It is quite infuriating, yet dull at the same time. Graphics are unimpressive, the same models are used for civilians very repetitively over and over, while the briefly impressive level of room detail is soon ignored as hardly anything can be interacted with, and those items are ALL the same. Voice acting might be OK, but I am too put off by the massive lip sync failure to get immersed.
Summary: It must just be me, as this game has received incredible acclaim (and perhaps I'm not playing it correctly), but I find it incredibly dull. It seems to consist of moving boxes around, looking for cans of beer, and skulking around corners. I'm not a games expert, and I tend to go for open world games like infamous, prototype and batman, so perhaps this wasn't the game for me. Fundamentally, nothing of interest has happened so far in the game for me.
Summary: Just too frustrating. I've played the previous Deus Ex games and quite enjoyed them. My reflexes aren't that great but I play plenty of FPSs mostly on low to middling difficulties without too many problems. The problem is that the first end of level boss is just too hard even on the easiest setting. Call me over picky but I think shooting a human without a helmet 10 times in the head on the easiest setting should be a bit fatal.
Summary: Very disappointed with the game. The storyline is slow and repetetive. You spend a lot of time moving around the map,hacking into computers and very little else. If you are interested in this sort of genre, I would recommend Splinter Cell instead, even if it is a little old now.
