Story seems interesting. But the execution.. audio logs, audio logs, some event happening behind a glass pane, huge objective name/picture/description appearing on-screen right as you complete it... damnit, I want better from this 'genre'. I want to evolve past Deus Ex 1, not streamline it.
It's the homogenization of games. Even when you have completely different games from seperate developers in seperate genres, they're gonna look the same in key areas because it's all been tried and true. You'll always see the same kind of objective pop-ups, always the same kind of UI, the same kind of animations etc. It's incredibly bland and boring I agree, and it's what makes all games look alike and without identity. That's not to say those games can't be good, but it's always such a shame to see the homogenization of an industry.
It's the same feeling I have with this game. I think it looks good and fun and I think I'm gonna play it, but I'm not a fan of all these copycat elements we're seeing all the time.
