There are a number of air ducts that lead to multiple places. It's true that stealth can be too easy at times, though the challenging combat is fitting since it emphasizes stealth. Plus I prefer the lower bullet count like this, opposed to bullet sponge player and enemies.

Absolutely agree with this. I had so much fun with DE:HR. I've played through it several times using different choices/play styles. Picked up the director's cut and plan to see what improvements are in store.

I am another who massively enjoyed DE:HR. Just what has been changed for the boss fights in Director's Cut?! I haven't read anything about it yet...

I loved DE:HR as well - shame to see that so many didn't get gripped by it's atmosphere and story

but the whole time, I will admit - it felt like an under-budgeted and almost expired game by modern standards. I loved everything about it in concept and what they had was executed well - but it just felt like it was stuck in development too long and/or they didn't get as much money as the dev team really wanted to in order to fully flesh out everything

the conversation "duels" in DX:HR are still the BEST in any game I've ever experienced - they felt REAL, and the decisions felt as hard and troubling as they would in a REAL LIFE argument; Mass Effect doesn't even come close
post #1064 of 1298
DE:HR its a great game but yeah, feels I dunno not rushed more unfinished Im gonna say, it could of.. no it should of been a much bigger game with the augment and weapon mod system more like the first one, I liked that system it was challenging to play the game at the start and it was good how massive the original was with so many different ways around the levels and different consequences to each little thing you do. I do hope they make another Deus Ex game biggrin.gif

One game I wish I never played is BF4, finished it on hard in a little over 6 hours today and got 5000 points more then the gold medal things on every level rolleyes.gif, would of been quicker but you know typical EA bugs and what not mad.gif pretty sub par game and to much stuffing around to get my mouse set up with no acceleration at all, BF3 was slightly more interesting, easier to set up and harder and I mean ever so slightly more interesting and harder

Thread Starter 
I started this thread quite a while ago and one of the games I mentioned was "Witcher 2"

Well, after giving it another try a few nights ago I'm happy to report I have changed my mind on the game. I think previously I didn't give it enough time to let the story sink in and enjoy the atmopshere. To be fair the prologue is rather boring. Once you break out of the prison things REALLY start to get interesting, atmospheric and awesome!

Freakin' awesome game!

Running through the forest with everything maxed (except uber sampling of course) at 2560x1440 is a sight to behold.

Just wanted to share my change of hear with all of you!!

Witcher 2.

I have to sit down to drink a potion? Yet I can kill massive trolls and take on 10 people at once...

Not a bad game but cbf'd tongue.gif

Deus Ex Human Revolution. I tried! I really did. It's just so boring! I wish I liked it. The premise and everything seems very cool but... I just can't get into it. Makes me sad.

If the witcher 2 didn't have such good graphics and story I wouldn't have finished it. Game play is to hard on normal and too easy on easy. At least easy keeps the story mode moving.

Saints Row 4.
Started it last week and don't think I'll be finishing it any time soon if at all.
Just doesn't seem to be for me.
post #1070 of 1298
I've never finished The Witcher and I bought The Witcher 2, have it installed, but have never launched it. I don't know why, but I just can't bring myself to play them. I like first's gameplay and everything, but I have no motivation to play it. I have too many other games that I own that I still have yet to play through.. Freaking Steam and its sales. D:

Also, I've never actually beaten Fallout New Vegas. I've nearly 500 hours into the game, but I've never actually finished the main story line despite having many many different characters. That's less lack of motivation or desire to beat it and more that I get so distracted especially with the amount of mods I tend to install.

Haven't finished Mirror's Edge although I'm pretty far into it. I love the gameplay, but I've been so distracted by other games that I've never finished it. Again, this is thanks to Steam and its sales and all of the other games I own that I'm trying to play through.

Lastly, haven't finished Borderlands 2. Same issue as above.
