It's true that it's a little on the short side - as I posted previously, I got roughly 22-25 hours out of each playthrough, which involved using the trainer (which sped up getting through most areas) and exploring. Especially when I took 37 hours to finish Deus Ex. I found myself wanting more after I finished, but that's actually a sign of a good game. I read a lot, and I always know a truly excellent book when I finish it and want more.

However, having said that, the game is undeniably fun and keeps you going. Add to that there's DLC due out next month which will most likely add several hours to the game (with possibly more to come after that). THEN there's enough to do to justify at least a second time through, even if just to see how most quests turn out of you take a different path. Additionally, you can play the game through entirely using Stealth, then running through the game shooting everyone in sight.

To cut a long story short (too late), all in all I have no regrets at all in buying this one.

A small tip though: don't rely on reviews. I've bought plenty of games in the past which have had great reviews but I've found boring or just plain terrible, and vice versa, with crappy reviews which I've loved.

This. Take the Halo series, for example. Great reviews. I hated them. Absolutely did not care for them at all. Played the first all the way thru. Played a little of the second and just quit, it wasn't interesting to me at all.

Deus Ex however, the first and HR, both awesome games. And DX2 would have been good if it were a stand-alone game and had not carried the Deus Ex name. It just had impossible standards to live up to and the dev team wasn't up to the challenge of the franchise, but otherwise a good game, IMO.

My first playthru was a mix of stealth and assault, and sometimes I killed and most of the time I stunned or knocked out. I'm on my second playthru now where I'm killing anyone that bothers to raise a firearm in my direction. No mercy. And I plan a 3rd playthru, where I try not to kill anyone. (But I'm a little worried about how yer not supposed to kill anyone in the first mish before you get augmented? For the achievement that is.)

its been along time a game thats not an actual RPG has kept me glued to my pc. But this game just blew me away from start to finish WOW! what a ride that was.. i never really liked shooters but what i didnt know bnt this game was that it was in some ways like the good old Splinter cell. Espionage.. Stealth avoid killings to stay hiden, not a run-gun-shoot game at all. and well thats just kept me going for 21hours loved it! this maybe a silly question.. but i choose Drew's ending.. as the truth came out.. did Adam actualy die? or did the lights just go out..? eitherways exceptional game and storyline. 10/10 hope theres another coming.. (( oh.. i did enjoy putting a Bulltet! in taggets head. no ways i was saving tht slimeballs butt))

I'm glad that you got it and liked it, like we said, it's worth it. I think this game is actually decently long if you look at the facts that we cheated in this and that most games are /much/ shorter than this game was these days, which is sad.

This game held true to the series and someone said that they actually drew inspiration from other games, like the crouching system, stuff like that. It took the best aspects from many games and made something sorta knew.

I have to agree with you all. I'm currently in the Harvester Hideout garage nearing the end. This game as many have said previous to my post most certainly holds the series together. Beating the game will definitely take me longer than 20 hrs only due to personal time constraints (Work, life and spending time with the Mrs.). I've been playing the game without a trainer as I have the PS 3 Augmented Edition version (that would be the day if the PS3 had trainers!) and I have to say it's not Elder Scrolls or Fallout, but heck it's Deus Ex! After each mission I kept having flashbacks of the original missions in the original Deus Ex such as JC Denton at Area 51 battling the greys and then finally at the statue of liberty! Sorry for spewing out my guts but I always loved this franchise since the beginning Eidos did Ion Storm and the many Deus Ex fans a great service with this addition to the series and most certainly hope for many more to come and hopefully not have to wait as long as we all have for another addition, but then again quality over quantity!
