3.0 out of 5 stars Very average with some bugs., April 8, 2014

This review is from: Deus Ex: The Fall [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
The story is quite short and can be rushed through in about 2-2.5 hours. It's not necessarily bad. I found the story to be quite interesting and ties into Deus Ex 1 and Human Revolution quite a bit. Being thrown back into the Deus Ex universe is always a great feeling, and the soundtrack is superb.

What isn't so great is that the gameplay is dumbed down and much easier than Human Revolution, not to mention levels are extremely small and linear. If you are short on time I guess this game is great for a decent story in a short time span to those who have a shorter attention span.

There are a few glitches here and there. Most of the video glitches can be solved by turning on Vsync.

Final Thoughts: Is this game worth 10 dollars? Probably not, but that entirely depends on how much you value your money. Did I feel like I got my moneys worth? Yes. But only because I got the original Deus Ex for free as part of a limited special. I put around 7.5 hours into The Fall and got all 28/28 achievements and nearly all ID Tablets in the game. I would say for 5 dollars The Fall would be a pretty good buy if you absolutely LOVE the Deus Ex franchise.
