The fall is real.Xgoesrawr | April 19, 2015 | See all Xgoesrawr's reviews »
There is a few negative things to say about this game such as when you take an enemy out their corpse just disappears and for some reason there is a store in your inventory where you can buy almost any item in the game at any time and it'll just appear in your inventory.
On the plus side the story isn't bad however it is unfinished. The Fall was meant to be released in a few different episodes but it seems that idea is no more.
I had fun with the game even though it didn't take very long to complete. I went in not expecting Human Revolution and wasn't disappointed when I managed to fall through the world when exploring.
Overall I think it is worth playing through at least once.

Did you play Deus Ex: Human Revolutions and enjoy it? Did you want an uglier, awkwardly-controlled, short version of it that ends on an ineffective cliffhanger? Then your prayers have been answered!
On the other hand, if you want a game that's good, especially something that feels like the earlier Deus Ex games, steer clear.

If you're just itching for more Deus Ex, you can't go wrong with The Fall. Don't expect much though, as it is a mobile port and is being sold as such, the base game being ten bucks.
Just don't expect the full Human Revolution experience and you'll find some enjoyment in the game. It still feels very Deus Ex despite being light on features.

Because even then they would be generous. I love Deus Ex, and DX Human Revolution, I was surprised I hadn't seen this announced but I thought "I don't need a review to tell me this is good" and bought it on release,
It is worse than awful. I refuse to waste my time writing any more about it other than to say they couldn't even spell 'fail' correctly in the title. I'd want at least £10 to re-install it. Be warned.

be aware that is only a "first" episode, and actually we don't know if a second one is planned. The gameplay is pretty much the same from Human Revolution, but the campaign is only four hours long.
It's a good way to come back into the Deus Ex universe, so if you liked the other games, try this one too.
