No I've not played the original but HR feels like Mass Effect, yeah the intro is a lot like Mass Effect 2 where they piece together Shepard. OK Shepard was dead but the intro is like each other but good though.
Had you played Deus Ex, you'd know where the level design and the augmentation ideas really came from. If anything Mass Effect borrowed a lot of design elements from the original Deus Ex. I suppose it makes sense you would notice these recurring in HR, which takes many of the original game's concepts and fits them into a more modern design.
Before you start ranting on about console ports at least play some of the games that made PC gaming such an incredible platform.
