‘Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’ Is About the Wars We Fight at Home
War Is Boring

I’ve enjoyed it immensely so far. I’m a big fan of the series and of the genre so I per-ordered but the initial press did give me pause and had me worrying about if Deus Ex would get preachy or blase about the issues, but all of my fears have been laid to rest. Scripted conversations, cutscenes, and interactions with random NPCs all highlight nuance and solid writing. I spoke with a good cop in a corrupt police force who coped with the immorality of what she had to do to keep her job by viewing her actions abstractly through the lens of history. There’s so much more but I don’t want to spoil anything .
