Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Top Critic Average
Deus Ex's mix of shooting and stealth continues to flourish under Eidos Montreal, though the story isn't a match for the setting.
A beautiful, smartly designed game set in a gorgeous futuristic city, but with a story that doesn't quite do it justice.
An excellent sequel that expands your toolbox and offers complex, multifaceted environments to explore.
An impressively complex action role-player, where every problem has multiple solutions, but it's not always quite as smart as it thinks it is.
A reflection of our world today, but it ends up a little too long winded and the narrative sometimes slows the experience to a crawl
Mankind Divided's cybernetic playground feels fresh, even if it doesn't go as far as expected
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided refines and reinforces the defining foundations of the series.
Despite its various shortcomings, Mankind Divided remains a worthy sequel to Human Revolution and one of the clearest signs yet that the immersive sim has returned to the top of the gaming heap. Whatever disappointment I felt about the limited narrative scope has been offset by the many surprises hidden in its wonderfully winding city hub.
