As much as the game tries to highlight different walks of life, all of the characters, even Jensen, end up looking like faceless beings used to dump lore onto the player. I like seeing games tackle difficult subject matter, but that message, while occasionally coming through loud and clear, is ultimately lost in this dull and slow-moving story. It starts off with a bang, but quickly becomes a muddled mess of politics and techno-babble.

The Deus Ex series has a great storyline, and it paints a compelling, serious vision of the future that we should all consider to be a warning, given our own divisive political climate. I love how a video game can bring up a serious subject and hold up a mirror to our own times.

I'm left with the feeling that a sequel to Human Revolution could've told a more engaging story, but at the same time I had a really great time crouch-walking through Prague. It might not be an especially surprising sequel, but it all comes together quite nicely, with solid side missions and a mix of action and stealth that lets you mess around and find your own way of doing things.

While Human Revolution was a promising title with some glaring issues, Mankind Divided is the work of a mature development team that has had the time to fix their weak points and improve on their strong ones. The result is a quality cyberpunk spy adventure with strong visual and level design, true opportunities for players to exercise choice, and some really cool cybernetic toys to play with. Go ahead, be the kind of Adam Jensen you want to be. Just don't forget to watch your back.

Aside from the smaller-feeling plot, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided improves upon its excellent predecessor in every other way. Its impeccably designed environments are flush with possibility, remaining completely coherent while supporting a wide variety of routes and character builds, and Jensen’s prodigious new feats of techno-wizardry add new dimension to both combat and exploration.

I'm left hoping that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s developers have an aggressive post-launch plan to continue the game’s story beyond its surprising endpoint. It’s a mottled cherry dropped on top of a game that otherwise makes for subtly major evolutions of action-RPG spaces, and for a world as interesting as Deus Ex’s, it would be a crime to leave it where it stands for another five years.

The complex and engrossing world of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is one that sinks its teeth into you right from the beginning, and as you journey through it you never want it to let go. We had to wait awhile for it to finally arrive, but our patience was rewarded with a definite game of the year contender.
Dan WebbAug 19, 2016
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is an impressive sequel to the brilliant Human Revolution. In the grand scheme of things, there are very few monumental changes, but if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? And everything that was broken in Human Revolution? It’s all fixed. Held back from true greatness by the odd grumble here and there, Mankind Divided is worthy of anyone’s time and money.

Here’s a game that hits its stride when dealing with the basics, crawling through vents and moving dumpsters to scale security fences, but struggles with just about everything else. The elements for a classic entry are here, but you can see the studios’ hesitation painted all of the end product.
Kieran HarrisAug 19, 2016
Just like other great follow ups, Mankind Divided maintains the essence of its acclaimed predecessor, whilst implementing its own individual mechanics and bringing new ideas to the table. It's an experience that conveys choice, with its narrative sculpted around your actions and combat approachable in multiple ways.
Elias BlondeauAug 19, 2016
By daring to make a statement, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided succeeds in being a nuanced, mature gaming experience that pushes the medium forward in major ways.
Kosta AndreadisAug 24, 2016
On the other hand, the replay value is incredible, thanks to the sheer abundance of ways in which you can play and react to each situation. Here’s hoping that we don’t have to wait another five years to find out what happens next.

La conclusión más clara que podemos ofrecer de Mankind Divided es que si te gustó Human Revolution te gustará este también. Es simplista pero es la pura realidad y parece que es el precepto que ha guiado este desarrollo: no romper nada, trasladar lo que se hizo bien del anterior a la actual generación, mejorar algunos elementos y guiarse por los mismos principios para conseguir un juego similar, evolucionado pero similar. No está mal, no es nada malo en esta fase de la serie y el resultado es tremendamente sólido.
Álvaro CastellanoAug 19, 2016
Puede que no sea el mejor en sigilo, ni en exploración, ni tampoco en la vertiente shooter; sin embargo todas las fracciones que componen su experiencia jugable lo convierten al nuevo Deus Ex en un estupendo lanzamiento. Siempre hay algo grande en dibujar nuestra propia historia, y más si es en una alegoría tan cruel y devastadora del racismo y la intolerancia en nuestro mundo como la que presenta este oscuro futuro.

Bei Deus Ex: Mankind Divided ist der Name Programm. Denn es wird die Fans spalten und lässt mich ebenfalls mit zwei Meinungen zurück. Als Fortführung der gelungenen Geschichte von Human Revolution ist Teil vier eine riesige Enttäuschung. Es beginnt sehr gut, verkommt aber zu einer sehr belanglosen Story, bei der das abrupte Ende nur sinnbildlich für alle verschenkte Chancen steht. Auf der anderen Seite glänzt Mankind Divided mit einem in allen Belangen verbesserten Gameplay.
Gianni MolinaroAug 19, 2016
Mission accomplie pour Deus Ex : Mankind Divided, qui parvient à capitaliser sur les forces de l'épisode précédent tout en les affinant. S'il ne cherche pas à révolutionner la formule et que les nouveautés principales sont davantage liées aux progrès technologiques (quand bien même l'I.A. aurait mérité encore plus d'attention), il s'affirme néanmoins comme un titre fort, riche, dense, ensorcelant, à l'histoire passionnante et à l'atmosphère unique, pouvant vraiment convenir à tous les styles de joueurs.
Baptiste HébertAug 23, 2016
La recherche d'esthétisme et d'ergonomie dans tous les détails matérialise cet univers, aussi crédible que cohérent, renforcé par une qualité d’écriture qui fait passer une bonne partie des RPG récents pour des épisodes de Oui-Oui. Élégant et délicat, ce Deus Ex est un épisode brillant mais sobre, deux qualités que l’on ne trouve que trop rarement associées et qui font l’apanage des très grands jeux.
Fabien PellegriniAug 20, 2016
Qu'on se le dise, Deus Ex Mankind Divided est un très bon jeu, qui ne trahit ni ses origines ni son prédécesseur. Qu'on aime tirer dans le tas, s'infiltrer dans des conduits d'aération ou pirater des ordinateurs, on trouvera forcément son bonheur dans ce nouveau titre signé Eidos Montréal. Bien plus plaisant que le reboot de Thief, Mankind Divided n'est toutefois pas aussi brillant que Human Revolution.
Stefania SperandioAug 23, 2016
Nel complesso, la modalità è molto gradevole ed è anche riuscita a sorprenderci nel suo voler proporre un contesto narrativo e qualche dialogo qua e là. Le meccaniche si incastrano bene e l’arrivo in futuro di nuovi livelli potrebbe tenervi vicini a Mankind Divided anche qualche tempo dopo aver terminato la campagna, considerando che potete anche condividere i vostri risultati creando una sfida con i vostri contatti.
Вадим МилющенкоAug 23, 2016
Вам будет казаться, что вот этот сюжетный поворот вы уже видели, что вот эта локация — прямая отсылка к точно такой же локации из Human Revolution. Да и само устройство игрового процесса до смешения похоже на все то, что мы уже видели в предыдущей части. Это не делает Mankind Divided слабой, скучной или предсказуемой игрой, но и вау-эффекта разработчики добиться не смогли. Очень ровно, очень качественно, очень хорошо. Не гениально.

Hiermee biedt de game je enorm veel vrijheid, waardoor je de game echt je eigen kunt maken. Het is jammer dat de game technisch niet altijd even imponerend is, met houterige animaties en een ietwat onstabiele framerate. Dat laatste kan natuurlijk verholpen worden middels een update, en het moet zeker geen reden zijn om Deus Ex Mankind Divided niet te spelen. Iedere liefhebber van role-playing games moet deze titel zeker op de plank hebben staan.

Mam problemy z jednoznaczną oceną gry. Rozłam Ludzkości to solidny tytuł, dobry następca poprzedniczki, oferujący ciekawą fabułę poruszającą poważne tematy, wzbogaconą przez satysfakcjonująca rozgrywkę i kilka elementów RPG. Jednak mimo wszystko autorzy mogli być nieco oryginalniejsi. Tak mamy grę, która nie różni się zanadto od Buntu Ludzkości.

Det är synd att huvudstoryn är ofokuserad och saknar riktigt intressanta moment men valmöjligheterna och kreativiteten gör att det är lätt att bortse från spelets små problem med enkelhet. Mankind Divided är i det stora hela en njutbar upplevelse som låter mig spela som jag vill och hantera världen på det sätt jag känner för. Adam Jensen är en ordentligt hård herre och känslan av vara proppfylld med augmentationer är nästan berusande.
