The much awaited Deus Ex Mankind Divided has finally released. The action packed role-playing gaming received a great response from his launch trailer and demos. The name of Deus Ex automatically sets the bar of expectations higher.We finally got our hands on the game. Let’s discuss whether the game lived up to its expectations or not. We tested the game on the PS4 version.
The story takes space at 2029, two years after the events of Deus Ex Human Revolution and the Aug Incident.
Deus Ex Mankind Divided is based on the mechanical apartheid-where augmented humans have become a subclass of civilisation. The augmented humans are being controlled by a organisation known as the Illuminati. With the danger of civil war rising, Adam Jensen, the protagonist is now working to capture a terrorist group of augmented humans. Jensen secretly works for the Juggernaut collective, a hacker group helping him to confront the Illuminati.
The main story lasts for 20 hours, which is very less than expected. The story is disappointing. The story builds in an awkward way right till the end. The game is short and developers answer of many important questions in a pathetic and boring manner. The characters are interesting, but they do not get good support from the story. The plot look rushed and the story doesn’t provide satisfaction.
The graphics are stunning. The environment looks very realistic. The level design is fantastic. There are so many options that the environment provides us which gives us complete freedom. The city Prague looks dark and the level designing maintains the feeling of being involved in a tensed situation. Hats off to the Dawn Engine!!!!!
Here comes the real fun. The cyber-powered suit is really impressive. The energy-draining Titan Armour ripples angrily as it gets rid of everything from bullets to grenades, the Tesla Arm attachment rapidly harms multiple enemies at once. There is a lot of freedom in the environment. There is a Remote Hacking augmentation, which is the most innovative and exciting upgrade. It allows you to manipulate mines, laser grids, window shutters etc. Abilities such as the Icarus Dash allow you to cover short distances very quickly and can be used as an escape tool. These types of innovations enhance the stealthy experience. The exploration is really fun. The mechanics will keep you intrigued. However, the choice system is not as dynamic as some of the other RPG’s.
Most of the missions are based on infiltration and there is much to discover for yourself. The developers have made some great improvements. A new cover to cover system is really awesome. Gunplay has been improved. There are many varieties in weapons. Executions and takedowns mechanisms are even better. The game is much more fluid than its predecessors. Sometimes the movements do look clunky. There is an element of Crysis’s gameplay.
The side missions are fun. The open world keeps your interest after you complete the story mode.
The console version has been well received so far. But it has been horrible for PC users. Many gamers are complaining about its issues in the Steam forum. The developers have launched a new patch to fix some bugs and crashes. They are recommending the users to lower their settings.
As far as the critics are concerned, they are happy with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Metacritic has given it a rating of 85%, while IGN has given 9.2/10. The VR experience is also great in it.
Superb Gameplay Mechanism
Tons of Freedom
Bugs in the PC version
Combat, not that great
