E.Y.E. - Review @ Games On Net
Aussie site Games On Net has a short review of E.Y.E. with a score of 3.5/5:
EYE: Divine Cybermancy is a game that, despite Toby’s protestations, has taken most people by surprise: an open-ended cyber-punk techno-wizard game full of swords, demons, psychic powers and sniper rifles. Many are comparing EYE to the much-beloved Deus Ex and, mechanically at least, the similarities are undeniable. The open-endedness of the levels and the flexibility in weapons and character skills means there is a hugely different number of ways to approach any given problem, and reactive NPC AI means you’ll often find yourself in unpredictable situations.
One of the key selling points of Deus Ex was of course the excellently written, beautifully-told storyline - something that, unfortunately, EYE fails to deliver on. It’s not that the storyline is bad, per se, it’s just that it’s obscured behind poorly-written English that, when combined with an dense lattice of complex in-world teminology, makes for chat boxes and dialogues that every player I’ve spoken with agrees should be avoided at all costs. This is sad, because what glimmers of the storyline you are able to make out paint a compelling world, realised in a unique and beautiful aesthetic reminiscent of a Japanese-French Warhammer 40,000 techno-gothic.
