A good Deus Ex experience for on the go, as playing a few minutes here and there throughout the day feels satisfying. Deus Ex: The Fall was excellent, but that game I need to play at least an hour of for it to feel worthwhile. I will say this game is a real battery vampire though, especially on high settings (the animations I especially liked). Even when I play with the charger plugged in, the power percentage still rapidly goes down, so play it sparingly. There's also no need for any of the stuff offered from the microtransactions I'm glad to say.
In fact it's a step back. I hated the step limitations of Hitman Go and found the goals too repetitive and arbitrar. Lara Go focused much more on great diverse puzzles and discovery. Deus Ex yet again introduces stupid step limits and "boring" level mechanics in concise environments. In comparison to Lara, this is a disappointment. 😢 On top, the imprecise controls can be frustrating due to the strange angles. Please more adventure again and *no* step counts!
UPDATE: LIVE PUZZLE PROBLEM IS FIXED!! The game can be very challenging as you progress. And the live puzzles are hell to play, but it's part of the fun. Only reason I give this 4 stars is because it drains my battery a lot, even at low quality and all. My phone gets really hot after about 15 mins of playing which is very annoying... Also need zoom feature. Some maps are very big and it's impossible to master the first time unless you manage to take screenshot during the first few seconds
Excellent puzzler, very much in the spirit of Lara Croft Go and Hitman Go, but with some unique scenarios that play on the cyberpunk theme. The music and visual presentation are fantastic, and the animations give the takedowns a definite thrill. The value is also quite strong since the challenge level ramps up effectively without feeling too easy or overwhelming. I got legitimately stuck for awhile on a few puzzles (despite being quite experienced at this kind of game) but never felt like the game was unfair or impossible.
If I need to go to Google to figure out basic mechanics because there is zero tutorial in this game it is a failure of game design. Also the bonus praxis kits in Deus Ex Mankind Divided are one time use for one save only. Kind of a let down for people who want to do multiple play throughs (like me :/). Aside from that this game is just OK... Not great not terrible just OK.
Initially this looks less interesting than Tomb Raider Go, but as you keep playing it grows on you... Absolutely love this game, quite possibily my favourite in the series. The puzzles can be quite mind bending!
