There is a difference between "positive reviews" that rank around 80% (source, gamerankings.com, pc version averages 82% ), and getting GREAT reviews that consistently clock in well over 90%. Let's not forget that the original received over FIFTY Game Of The Year awards.
Was going to try to remain quiet. Can't.
Yeah, it's called 8%. So it's a good game and not a great game. The way people talk about it, it's the worst thing since porn hit the Atari 2600.
Let's not forget another thing. Deus Ex sold like crap here in the states until enough reviewers told people to go try it. Most people all in up in arms probably got it out of a bargain bin. And it's certainly not alone in the, "oh, that was worth my money now that it's $10" crowd of excellent games. (another one, in case you were wondering, was the first Thief).
Abandoning the PC platform? Well, if only the top 15% of games are good enough for the PC gamer crowd, one can only wonder why. Simply expected more? Yeah, no kidding.
