I beg to differ, even Ion Storm's forums are in rebellion against the game.

That's why I said ONE OF the only forums I've seen that hates the game so much. The Ion Storm forums hate it the worst, then the Nvnews forums, and then most of the other ones have been pretty open about the game (Rage3d and Gamefaqs have a large number of people on them that really like the game, some are even calling it GOTY). Though I've seen some people on pretty much every forum that say they hate it, and some that say they love it. Odd that there's such a huge gap in opinions about this game though, some say it's not worth the discs it was printed on, others say it should win GOTY.

I saw Deus Ex 2 at wal-mart today too. I also saw a shovel, which I could use to play a game called Pick Up Dog Crap And Throw It Away. I decided the shovel looked and sounded more fun, so I got it.

Yeah, I've seen a lot of people say that they love it. Especially on Xbox forums, where almost everyone agrees that it's a very good game (though they do complain about the framerate and AI).
Well, no stuff. Of course they love it on the X-Box forums. It's been dumbed down especially for them.

Sorry, but this game is an utter disappointment. It is inferior to the original in almost every way (except graphics, I guess).

Of course. With a shovel, you can smack yourself in the head and experience head-trama induced dreams. While with Deus Ex 2, all you get is murderous rage.

Amazing how easy it is to bash on a game when you ignore all the good things about it...

Mmmm... head trama...

Funny you should mention head trama in a Deus Ex 2 thread, as the AI in Deus Ex 2 is worse than most head-trama patients, and/or head trama patients could have wrote better AI.

that console games have to be aimed at a younger audience than PC games and THAT forces you to make different design decisions.

and its pretty clear why Deus Ex 2 sucks so much

Why can't kiddies go play donkey kong or whatever and let us have normal Deus Ex im so pissed at devs not gonna get my $$
Wow, you should be a laywer, because you're pretty damn sneaky at warping the truth. Here, you seem to have "misplaced" these other comments, as well as the FULL sentence that your second quote was from:

I don't think you have to dumb down the experience or make a game more action-oriented or less thoughtful for console gamers (as I've been told repeatedly over the years).

I don't think it's true any longer (if it ever was) that console games have to be aimed at a younger audience than PC games

It is strange to hear so much "bad words" about these game in a forum like these in here...

I have been to RAGE3d.com as i said and there are people that do not complain at all and they reccomended it it as one of the best games available to buy


There are several review sites also (more than 1 or 2 actualy) that say these game is very good (both in Xbox and PC) and it will become better with patches in the Pc version

look
9.1 / 10 "Editor's Choice Award" - OXM
5 Stars - Stuff Magazine
9 / 10 - IGN.com
4 Out of 5 Stars - GameSpy.com
9.5 / 10 - PC Score - Game Informer

Sure, unlike Deus Ex 2, the shovel doesn't have layer upon layer of insane copy protection, and you can share it with friends.

BTW, I love Penny Arcade too. That one is particularly good.

Just a question...
