Review embargo is down and most reviews are coming in around the 8.7 to 9.5 mark (about a 9.0 average so far). It sounds like a solid successor to the first Deus Ex. Here's one quote from the 1UP review that sounds so similar to my experiences with the first Deus Ex that it made me smile with anticipation: "One time I had to hold off wave after wave of enemies while waiting for a funicular to arrive. Rather than take them on directly, I used the strength augmentation to block the entrances to the room with vending machines — problem solved. Other times I'd leave a dead body in plain sight simply to distract guards as I snuck deeper into an enemy hideout. When I was drawn into a fighting I would usually duck into a nearby airduct and play Batman with the enemies — only popping out of hiding long enough to take down an enemy or two before retreating again."
