So I just beat Deus Ex 3 last night I guess. I cared so little whether JC Denton (or Adam Sandler...whatever his name was) lived or died or saved the world that I just pressed one of the two buttons in the supraliminal "CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!!!!" room that I had managed to unlock. I should mention that I only unlocked those two buttons by accident because I was following X marks on the map. Where do I begin on this shoddy, clever game? There were some real high points. I liked the ability to choose my augs and be a sneaky dude. I hated the fact that the boss battles were all about shooting dodging shooting running shooting regardless of whether I had chosen the shooty dodgy runny skills. I loved being able to hack stuff, hated that hacking stuff was almost always just a way to get more ammo or read stupid messages on boring terminals. I loved the idea of a quasi open world. I hated the fact that it was a shitty maze with boring quests and loading screens. It's like the ghost of Eidos past didn't remember to tell anybody that the worst part of Thief 3 was the quasi open world with crummy loading screens and the best part was sneaking around cool non-linear environments. I didn't want to save Megan. I didn't want to work for Sarif. I didn't want to kill USA MARINE GO GO GO! or The Girl with the Dragon Augment or Boris Vladimir Ilyitch Plasmovsky. I didn't want to listen to Tiny Tim's fucking speech about how he was going to godblessuseveryone. What I really wanted was to do was just blow the whole damn place sky high like Eliza was recommending so we could give George Lucas his bottomless pit back but there didn't seem to be a button for that in the "CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!!!!" room and I was really, really bored by that point and didn't want to go searching for the jeffries tube that had the explodium in it. My rating: thumbs up your butt Eidos. [EDIT] OMG I can't believe I forgot the zombies. Oh how I loathed the zombies.
