I really enjoyed the first Deus games, and I hoped this wouldnt be a huge let down following my current love for other similar titles such as Mass Effect 2 - i'm happy to say it wasnt.
The game is atmospheric, the story is film-esque and the characters are very very good. I need to be involved in the world when I RPG like this and I was from the outset. Its not quite open-world but its close, and thats good in a way as it has that Metal Gear quality to it where you are slowly guided exactly where you need to be.
I tried to play the game as stealthily as I could without being detected where possible but often failed, and this really spiced things up as one moment you're hiding from sentry bots and skulking around, the next all hell breaks loose and you're in a life-and-death struggle against overwhelming odds.
I get the same feeling playing this as I did playing Knights of the Old Republic and both Mass Effects which should be testament to the quality.
The only let downs for me were some of the voice acting which is bland at times, and the combat can be a little bit 'clunky' (especially when you run out of power!) and repetitive when doing stealth attacks. Another slight dissapointment are the boss fights with the mercenaries; they are very similar and don't add too much to the overall story in my opinion.
I'd say this is one of the best games i've played this year and thankfully money not wasted at all (especially at the price here).
