Good Story Line, Horrible Everything Else

Summary: This game has a very amazing story line. The way it makes the game like a movie is very cool too but, that is the only good thing about this game. The controls is the part I hate the most, there awful. The graphics are okay but not amzing or even good. The weapons look way to small. The way to selct your weapon is horrible. The amount of bullets you can take without dying is very agrivating. You will die with 2- 5 bullets.
Summary: I have to say im fairly disappointed with this game, and square enix in general. I really wanted to like this game, i was so excited to play this but as soon as i started progressing to about 8 hours in, i felt as though the game was forcing me to play they wanted. very contradictory with what they claimed they game would play like. i get that its a stealth rpg, but allow me to make that choice of going in guns blazing or sneaking around. the choice is illusion.
Summary: In the begining I was enjoying the game and as I progress further became more irritated. This supposedly bionic character is physically weak and fragile like Duece Bigolow !! There is no hand to hand combat. Esentilally you hide and shoot. Manuverability is absent. To upgrade requires praxis which is very hard to accumulate. Your ammo runs out so fast its ridiculous. Ok this is supposedly a stealth tactic game...and this part was fun. The graphics was great..
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: 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.
