... but he still liked it. Everyone who knew how beloved the original Deus Ex was also knew that Human Revolution had a lot to live up to. As a huge fan of the first game, I thought DE:HR was flawed but still really enjoyable. Looks like Warren Spector, lead designer of Deus Ex, thought so too.
"It was one of the few games I finished," he said to GamesIndustry.biz, "and I know the guys on the team and I know how dedicated they were and how respectful of the original they were; their hearts were in the right place and they did a wonderful job."
But that's not to say it was a perfect Deus Ex game; Spector found himself screaming at his television on more than one occasion: "... because there were two, three, four things they did where I just said 'Nooooo, why did you this? Noooo!' and, and it wasn't that it was right or wrong, it was different than what I [expected]."
I'm sure it must please the team at Eidos Montreal to know the creator of the franchise enjoyed their long-awaited sequel. Now if only they would give us some details on Thief 4.
