The Edge is a magazine that's why you can't "find" the review.

IGN Germany broke the review embargo by a good 20 hours though. It might get removed until tomorrow.

I'll be letting you guys beta test this one for me.

I was going to pre-order, but I'm going on vacation in a week and wouldn't have time to play it anyways.

I doubt the release will be beta, it's not their style.
But I'll do two things while you're chasing reptiles around Miami…

1. Will compare the stealth system with HR and also with Dishonored (1, not 2)
2. Will compare FPS system with… With… Dunno. I didn't play new Doom nor Wolfenstein. Ah whatever I'll just check if shoot-em-up style it's great, okay or horrible.

Nah, people buy early release from places that broke the street date are doing the beta. It already had two patches and it's not even released yet.

I checked a few of the review (skipping some stuff to avoid spoilers) and I'm very confused. They are all over the place. Reviewer call the game excellent and a must buy, but give it a 6 or 7 score. O_o

edit: Seems a lot of the low score is because the game is too similar to the first one. How is that a problem?

edit 2: and the other low score is because the game doesn't take a stance (on political matters) and leave choices to the player.

The preview build had dx12 available, seems like they disabled it until they fix the performance lost.

PC Performance (from PC Invasion):
On a system housing an i5-6600 / 16GB DDR4 RAM / 4GB 380X, Mankind Divided defaulted to High (out of Low/Medium/High/V. High/Ultra). That proved to be a little over-taxing for a consistent 60fps/1080p, but lowering Shadows to Medium and just putting up with a few fluctuations seemed to work out fine. With V-Sync off, tighter indoor areas were comfortably in the 50-70fps range. Most outdoor areas hovered closer to 45-60, with a few particularly geometry-heavy areas of Prague dipping briefly into the high 30s.

It depends what they mean by too similar. If it's the levels, then yeah.. that's not a good thing. I don't want to feel like I'm playing the same game again if I play them back to back.

Hmmm…honestly I expected around 91+, HR was very good ( I think score about 90 or so) and this looks like +1 in every respect. Only thing I didn't like is the same cut scene take downs.
Seems no game today can break 95, which they were dishing like candy few years ago.
In the end Maylander's review is the only one that counts.

It's in relation to the gameplay. Some reviewers are complaining they didn't re-invent the wheel, that they only fixed flaws HR had.

Lots of complains about an abrupt ending though. From what I'm reading on neogaf, it seems they decided to split the story because of late "development issues"(? maybe not, someone mentioned it was already planned as a trilogy). This is supported by devs hinting at save import for the next game a few days ago might I add.

@BoboTheMighty

DX:HR reviews were "I'm giving 90 to this very flawed game", while DX:MD reviews are "I'm giving 80 to this improved DX:HR".

As usual, with a flood of reviews I'm very interested in one with the lowest score review. While I don't have to agree with the score, these usually do not watch the game through pink glasses. Sometimes the reason for low score is bugs, sometimes cutoutDLC, sometimes horrible idea to integrate MMO/phonegame, but sometimes just their shittaste. Can't know unless I read.

Link please?

For those who preordered on GMG, check your e-mail, you should have received the key. Preload on Steam is available (cca 40Gb).

I've seen one reviewer complaining about it being a sub-20 hours game for a complete playthrough* and others saying it was too short at ~25 hours (but not complete game from what I understood), but other reviewers claims it is a 20-30 hours game for the main quests only depending if you go gun or stealth. We will have to wait for Maylander and had 10 hours to his time.

*edit: You can only discover side quest by talking to people, so anyone rushing will miss stuff

There is a NG+ and the Breach arcade mode and the game apparently has replayability though.

Neogaf has a thread that compiled the reviews with links. porcozaur linked it earlier.

For the "low score", look at GameInformer, VideoGamer, PushSquare, COG Connected (the only one complaining about bugs from what I've seen and its on the PS4), TrustedReviews.

edit2: Performance wise, it appears that High looks quite similar to Ultra but you get twice the FPS (Ultra set MSAA to x8 and one of the shadowing options just kill performance).
