A few of the characters in this game are clones of characters in the original Deus Ex (2000). While not directly stated, it is believed that the "Voice Of Project Director" is the clone of Walton Simons. See more »

Deus Ex, in itself was a very fun RPG and very entertaining to play. Deus Ex Human Revolution had a much more engaging story (which is saying a lot). This one however seems to be the one that falls short.
The Freedom of choice is huge in this game, you can basically pick any side you want to and they'll claim to be the good guys and you follow through with your objective... That also presents a problem, You are NEVER as engaged with the story as you ever were in the other 2.
One other complaint was how they put all the ammo as one, if you use up all your ammo snipering bad guys from a distance you will have nothing left if you want to blow something up with a rocket launcher.
I will cut the game some slack in saying I have NEVER played a game that is quite like this. I can see what they were trying to do with this and it didn't work as well as it could, however I think that making a game like this should not be overlooked. It may be just me.
About the game play - aside from the ammo thing it is actually pretty good (if you find the right weapon the ammo thing can be overlooked if you're quick enough). It does get irritating but I did like it.
As far as story goes - as I said it is not as engaging as the others in this series, however for a "there is no right or wrong" I thought this did a good try for this type - however I think an idea like that should be scrapped if they can't do it right.
Decent sequel - not as good as the original.
