Interest in game
For some reason this game isn't drawing me in. Should I press on for a bit more in the hopes that it draws me in?

After 3 hours, I lost interest but, I may reinstall it another time, maybe.

Stick to newbie games?

It's more the gameplay than the content that is turning me off

The gameplay can be a bit rough, but I say press on for the story. It's not a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

if you liked the first one, this is going to be equally good. the gameplay is bound to get better as soon as you pick up some xp and gear.

This is a game that requires patience and diligence (explore every nook and cranny), but if you stick with it, that patience will be rewarded with xp that can be used to build up your augmentations, weapons, and interesting side quests that add to the story and atmosphere.

With every hour it's getting more and more interesting. I recommend.

If you like splinter cell, or hitman, this will be worth every €, especially if you like ciber punk settings.

Same here, I thought it was just me. After a while it's super boring. There is nothing really to do but walk around. This game reminds me of that scene in The Matrix where Neo sneaks through the cubicles at his job. It's like 90% that. Sneaking around boxes and cubicles. I don't feel like there is a real story, or the story is extremely slow. Just when I think it is getting good, im back in the streets and/or sneaking around in an open warehouse. At least games like Mass Effect make sneaking around the same kinda locations somewhat interesting but in this game like you said the gameplay is just kinda dull.

I must be a strange person. I love the game, reminds me the first Metal Gear, one of my favorites games. It combine stealth and offensive mode, role play, exploration, good story, cool design and philosophical intense reflection... All the things that i like in a game.

It's not a bad game, in quality aspect. Maybe the point is that you are looking for something more hack and slash or mor fps. In short, more frenetic.

Everytime someone says they have a problem with this game, people alawys blame the player or suggest a more "dumbed down game" like CoD.

I see that. The gameplay just feels off for some reason. The subject matter is fantastic and the story isn't bad but something just isn't clicking for me. It's not unplayable by any means, just not as fun as it should be to me.

This game is a bittersweet feeling for me. I personally own it and have played 17 hours (thank you steam for recording the time I spend on games) and have not finished it. You can say I lost interest halfway through.
Disclaimer: I haven't played the game for a while, so I may be off on some details.

The Good:
The level design is made so you can sneak around without being detected, which makes it a challenge/fun if you enjoy the sneaking (I do and spent all energy on sneaking around).
The story is fairly interesting, on a scale from 1 to 10, I'd probably give it around a 7.
The game has a fairly good skill tree, which allows for the personalization playstyle (combat vs. sneaking.)
The Bad:
Boss Fights. These fights have no real reason to be in the game and are incredibly difficult (double so for me, having specialized in sneaking and using silenced handguns.) They have no real reason to be there and clearly favor one playstyle over the other. A quick search on google lead to very detailed (and specific) ways to beat them, undermining the whole pick your playstyle selection.

Overall, while I enjoyed the game as a whole, the boss fights, for me, were a dealbreaker. If you are the rambo style player, you will probably not have this problem, but if you prefer the stealth path, you will notice an increased difficulty. Maybe I was a bad player, but a quick google search shows a lot of frustration from stealth players during boss fights.

Hope this helps.

The plot gets more interesting as it goes on but I'm a huge fan of stealth games and the cyberpunk style. DX:HR has pretty simple stealth mechanics but I did find some decent challenges to stay hidden in the later part of the game. I recommend playing on the highest difficulty for a better experience.
