As a sequel to one of the greatest games ever, it's always hard to live up to expectations. But I think it was a good move to take a slightly different direction with this game. For one, it is simplified quite alot, and the fiddly skills points system has been dispensed with. I really liked the aspects which remained the same as the original Deus Ex, and the updated graphics was good too. However, I thought the graphics could have been better. Also, the much vaunted physics system didnt really play a major role in the gameplay itself.
Other little gripes: inventory items sometimes refused to stack, it was annoying!! Game tends to crash out randomly sometimes.
Overall another enjoyable game, could be better but still.
