Consortium - Review @ Steam First

by Couchpotato, 2014-09-22 05:20:21

Steam First has a new late review posted yesterday for Consortium, and awarded the game with a score of 4.5/5. Probably the highest score since it was released.

It has been a very long time since I have played through the original Deus Ex, though when I spoke to the developer at PAX, that was a major touch point for their description. Since I can’t vouch for that, the reader may ask why I bring it up. The reason is this: for the few flaws this game has, I have not been pulled into a story like this in a long time. Part of it may be the fact that I played differently than I usually do, but I would also say that the story flexibility afforded, the high quality of the writing, and the attention to detail in the initial lore planted my rear in my computer chair and I did not want it to end. If mentioning Deus Ex will get more people to try it, mention it I will.
