This game was awesome. I remember early in the game when you first get a quest in Sarif Industries main office, if you accidentally go in the women's bathroom before talking to the quest giver, he gives you a hard time and says "oh and Adam, stay out of the women's bathroom ok?". I LOL'd

That happened in the original Deus Ex in the beginning of the game as well.  I did the same as you and it gave me flash backs of the original game.

I found some of the boss fights are a joke (even on "Give me Deus Ex" difficulty) because they all have a glaring weakness. Of course, you'd have to find these out in order to take advantage of it.

But yeah, trying to do a pacifist run while carrying an assault rifle doesn't seem right.

Adam whispers, they must have said, "Make him sound like Christian Bale in Batman."  Or Ralph Garmin's impression of Harrison Ford.  And flat delivery too.

If you  played Deus Ex original and you liked it you will love this game . It's a little bit short compare to  Deus Ex . Boss fights are bull shit , yes but overall this is great game . How many games do you know that you would wanna replay the whole game ? I've done this game 100 % stealth . Now i wanna replay the whole game and be a bad guy.

The first paragraph explained exactly how my experience with this game went. I thought the same thing (coming from the old Deus Ex mentality of the friendly NPC's going 'You're just kidding around right?')"

The only complaint I have about the game is the battery system: it feels restrictive and limits your actions while being a stealth player (i.e. you can't take down or do as many actions that require your augs as often without needing to eat an energy bar (or down an energy item).

That's intentional actually. If you've ever played DX: IW, one of their goals there was to restrict your inventory such that a stealthy player wouldn't end up with butt-tons of inventory space to play around with like they did in the original DX. It wasn't very well handled (tiny little fugly icons and too restricting), but that was the idea anyway.

Same principle applies in HR, but now they've got those big-ass energy tubs and such to take up your inventory space. So you can go shooty, but you'll need inventory space for arsenal and ammo, or you can go stealthy, but you'll need inventory space for energy boosters. Either way, you need to dedicate inventory space to doing well at your chosen playstyle.

Which you are correct. Since this was the case, I only attempted any take-downs or incapacitated people with the stungun/tranq rifle when I had no other alternative (more often than not I tried finding different routes). I did carry equipment to be shooty with (but like an assult rifle modded out the face).

I'm not usually in such disagreement with the MaxPC writers/crowd but I thought this game was barely average. I'm glad the boss fights were called out for how terrible they were but the AI was so godawful that it made the game very disappointing to me.

Deus Ex: HR is probably the best game i'v ever played...even though by far I have more time invested in L4D and L4D2... dragon Age: Origins is pretty damn good too...

I'm having hella fun with this game.  Probably about 50% of the way through.  It's great to do a save, proceed through an action sequence and then think to yourself, "I could have done that better," or "there's got to be an alternative" and then re-doing it - sometimes several times.  It's almost like the replay value is embedded inside the game.
