Screenshot of the Week #91: Breaking Bad!

                The
“vacation” is over and I’m returning in full force with two articles already
posted and many more on the way (which might include a new interview!).
                The
drought season of gaming is ending with the release of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
which will be followed shortly by many more quality titles, both AAA and indie.
As a gamer that played and liked the entire series (yes, that includes
Invisible War), there was no debate about not playing Mankind Divided, this was
one of the most anticipated games by me this year. I dived in the game with a
mixed feeling of hope and fear as the pre-release reviews I’ve read got me
worried. I find Mankind Divided to be a slightly improved version of its
predecessor, with a visual facelift and a new narrative that follows Adam
Jensen in his crusade against terrorism and conspiracy. There are aspects where
this game comes on top of the series, but writing is not one of them and for
those looking for a more RPG oriented experience, the game might be just
disappointing. Where Mankind Divided does stand out is the artistic direction
which complements an impressive level design built to give players the freedom
of gameplay they desire. The game has problems, most of which stem from
questionable porting decisions and the ever present optimization issue, but more
about that in my detailed review about the game.
That’s the wrong kind of bath…
