Is it a bad game or just a bad Deus Ex?
I own it already but haven't tried it yet.
you've already gotten some replies, but since you asked, It's a bad game on its own right IMO. It's a game I've wanted to like for a long time, but even after the inital rage and disappointment during release subsided, I just can't get into it. Granted, it's a lot better than the yearly COD, but that's not saying much.
The comparison to the original DX (how are you going to not compare it, it's got the name on the title) and me taking a break on it andd missing out on vampire is not helping my love for it, that's for sure.
