So I've finally had some more time to really play this (PAX got in the way last weekend...), and damn, the more I play the more I am in love with this game. The setting is so well developed, there are just so many places to go, etc.
I will say the same thing that everyone else has been saying, though: The boss fights suck. Especially when my social/hacker/all-around-sneaky-guy Jenson comes face-to-face with the fact that I haven't really given him any direct combat skills. Funny how the Penny Arcade
guys had the exact same problem. Still, they are infrequent enough that I manage to muddle my way through somehow...
I'm curious, where are people putting their points? I take a stealthy approach almost all the time but I haven't actually given myself any of the stealth augs (except for the basic first level cloak but I hardly even use that, it just drains power so fast...). Instead I have focused on hacking and mobility augs. By the latter I mean things like leg aug that lets you jump really high (which I have found incredibly
useful), the strength aug to move heavy objects, the breathing thing that lets you go through gas, etc. Rather than dumping more and more points into making the cloak last ever so slightly longer I think it's way more useful to have a variety of tools that let you find alternate routes, etc. Hacking is also a blast. I hack everything I can find.
