Deus Ex. Hmmmn,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deus Ex: The Icarus Effect (Paperback)I loved the first game when it came out way back when and have been hooked ever since.
This book does jump you straight back in to the not to distant future where we will all be augmented in some way or other as long as we can afford it!!!! And that's the message of the book bad guys get rich good guys get dumped on with a anti hero to save the day. Unfortunately the story never really grabs you and does seem to stall a bit a couple of times I expect the origional draft was a bit longer and got edited down. Shame, as there are some great ideas floated in the story.
Overall get this if you are a fan but I found myself crashing through it in a couple of days just to get to the end. Hence only three stars, which I really didn't want to give but unfortunately it doesn't deserve anymore.
