I think the problem is that the original DE was on PC and inventory management like that is much more efficient when you have a mouse to move things around quickly. I like the system but it's like an exhausting sliding puzzle when you're re-arranging everything to get two free squares next to each other.

I played Deus Ex: Human Revolution on PC, and I sort of see how that system wouldn't work quite so well without a mouse to drag and drop. So, fair point then.

Sneaky Snake Stealthy with occasional sweet talking.
Fat lot of good that did against the bosses though.

Stealthy non-lethal.
Bought Human Revolution during the last steam sale, decided to try stealth and non-lethal hacking route.
That was hilarious, sneaking around dudes and ghosting the place and tranquilizing when need be.
Ended up getting Pacifist achievement. Even saved Malik without killing anyone.

Was totally worth it, all the money from selling excessive weapons, ammo and shit ton of EXP and praxis kits.

End of game I had like 7-8 praxis kits too spare, nothing to use it on. Had all the good/decent upgrades.

Stealth ALL the levels! Unfortunately, this made boss battles terrible.

Super stealthy nonviolent. My first playthrough was intended to be like this, but I had to kill quite a few enemies who noticed me. It usually ended up with me getting halfway through a room, getting stuck and having to shoot my way out. Second time round, I was much more careful and only had to kill the bosses. I did end up running through Panchea firing my PEPS indiscriminately into the crazy augmented people, though.

For the bosses, I bought Typhoon upgrade and ammo. Made the bosses super easy. xD

Lvl 2 typhoon and bosses went down in 2 rounds of it. And for the last boss I had the laser rifle, just shot through the wall. :3c

Played stealthily, and when i got spotted, i would reload the save, i would not settle for anything less than full stealthiness!

I attempted to be stealthy at first but then I gave up on that and decided that the best course of action was guns akimbo!

Same here. My obsessive compulsiveness tells me if I get caught then "I am not playing the game right".

I stealthed it up 1st playthrough, got the Pacifist achievement and then raged when I got no "No Alarms" one.

Did a second one just turning in the cloak and running through everyone, and looking for ebooks.

Apparently I missed one, and I just finished my 3rd playthrough, where I tried to play it as "Go Crazy, Kill Everything", but I found it was just easier to avoid combat. In a game that gives me a stealth option, it just doesn't feel right not to take it.

I'm on my second DLC playthrough now, the first was a stealthy one with augs and weapons, now I'm doing one with nothing but takedowns and level 1 hacks. Its gonna be fucking annoying.

I love this game, though. I liked the original Deus Ex, but the old graphics ruined it a bit. I wouldn't mind a polishing of it *wink*.

Stealthy, but with more violence than I could have wanted to use. I also had a hacker playstyle. Other than that, if I got caught by an enemy, I would just run away in the general direction of the goal.

I starting playing a stealth no-kill run, but after seeing the Belltower massacre in the Hengsha apartment buildings I decided that my version of Adam Jensen would be super-pissed and went all murder-cyborg on them. From that point on I mostly stuck to stealth, but ended up being a bit more willing to bust out the sword arms and shotgun every now and then.

Meh they gave me so many praxis I didn't have to worry about playstyle, I could pretty much do everything.

I tried stealth because I really wanted to be in and out and not have the bad guys realize that I had just messed up their day. But alas, my patience did not allow me to see it through.

However, my favourite weapon in the game was my silenced pistol with a laser sight on it. Perfect for head shots and the small semblance of stealth I tried to maintain.

1st Playthrough: Stealth, Non-Lethal. Either used Tranq. Rifle, or takedowns. Played on Normal

2nd Playthrough: Stealth, Lethal. Used Pistol and combat rifle mostly. Abused the Typhoon. Played on Hard (tried and failed for the 'Doctrine' Trohpy., though I had all of them listed in the guide)

3rd Playtrough: Stealth, no combat. Maxed Stealth, Cloak, Hacking, and Battery. Chomped energy bars like a fiend and just cloaked past everyone (except the first couple of places) Got 'Foxiest of the Hounds'. Played on Easy

4th Playthrough: Trophy Cleanup: Needed 'Doctorate', 'The Fall', and 'The Take'. Played on Easy

3 or 4 frag granades worked well too and saved money and praxis points.

alternate between sneaking around, then turning on godmode (yay for the internet) and clearing swaths of enemies with arm-blades. Because arm-blades are awesome.

Seriously , i understand the appeal of a carefully played tactical shooter....but....stabby.

I were always on the "plus" side when it came to praxis points. Had all the useful and decent ones when I bought the 2 praxis points in the second time in Hengsha.

You earn so much more exp when being sneaky and hacking.

Adaptive. I tried to approach situations with stealth, some of the time I got the ghost thing.
Other times I completely fucked up things and had to go all-out. I don't get how people complete the game non-violently, it's hard as tits!

Anyway, this thread made me want to install the game again.

True that.
I hacked everything I could find and played it completely stealthy with a couple of stealth knockouts for good measure (stealth kills are fucking useless since they're about as subtle as firing a signal flare).

stealthy and non lethal, i can play any number of 3rd person shooter's (most of them batter than deus ex) but its very rare i get to be stealthy

the only time i regretted it was in the boss fights, oh god the boss fights i ended up replaying the whole game because i got stuck having to fight the final boss with no energy powers and no ammo on the hardest difficulty, it turns out if you bring an assault shotgun with double shot he dies quicker than a hamster in a punching bad....with glass in it (yahtzee quote)

Pretty much any kill was useless. Get 10 exp from killing someone or 3 if you got a headshot on them.
Get 30 for doing it stealthy, and headshot bonus on top of that as well if you use the tranq rifle. xD

I played hackey stealthy non-lethal, used the Stun Gun, gas grenades, and tranq. I kept some EMP's and an upgraded revolver for the bosses.

I never used the tranq rifle, I Always used fists and the taser, and I kept a 9mm handgun and put all the upgrades into that, everything else I sold asap, made tons of money to spend on praxis points, by the end I was almost fully augmented, I was only missing the radar expansion, the stealth upgrades and a couple of useless hacking upgrades.

I sneak in, avoiding detection by avoiding some enemies and silently killing/knocking out others. At some point, I get spotted by a camera or something, and gun my way through the rest with grenades and my AR.

I did avoid detection in a mission once though.

Stealth.

That's what it was made for. I've tried guns blazing and Adam goes down faster than a cheap whore if he so much as sees a bullet whizzing past him.

Only gripe I had was that using the Revolver was more fun than the stupid tazer gun or sniper tranquilizer.

I did however make sure that I was carrying a single lethal weapon on me at most times, as I'd heard of the grueling boss fights for all-stealth characters.

Stealthy, with as few kills as I could get away with. Knockout punches and hiding the bodies, killing only when I didn't see another way, although a few times just for fun. Like in the police station when I wanted to break into the armory I used a knockout punch on the guard, pulled his body into the ventilation system then shot him in the head while I was inside.

Ya, only thing I was missing was smart vision, fully upgraded lungs, Fortify and all the leg augments. Only took the jump extra high one, to get too the sneaky places.

SNAP ALL THE NECKS!

I totally fucked everything up. I blame my background. I'm too young to have played the first one and I was never very good at stealth. They do try a lot though, I kept running out of ammo.

Hack everything, sneaky-sneaky, and I tend to lean towards being non-lethal and aiming for a pacifist run on my first playthrough, although Malik didn't survive and err... I killed every Belltower bitch in sight after that.

zelda2fanboy:
I honestly don't know how anyone played this game non stealthily. It was really really hard. As soon as I set off an alarm, I'd usually have to reload an old save. The guards were vicious and unrelenting.

I think guns-blazing is harder initially, although if you specialise it quickly becomes highly viable.

Same here, and that game has one of the worst inventory management systems ever. I spend more time fighting it than playing the game.

I like the inventory system. It's very close to the system of the original Deus Ex, and adds an important level of challenge to the game. After all, it's not realistic that a stealthy dude would be crawling through ventillation shafts carrying an entire vanload of gear now, is it?

I think the problem is that the original DE was on PC and inventory management like that is much more efficient when you have a mouse to move things around quickly. I like the system but it's like an exhausting sliding puzzle when you're re-arranging everything to get two free squares next to each other.

You can set it to auto-manage so everything rearranges itself to fit in.

I was downright OCD about it. I knocked unconscious every guard and bad guy out there. I didn't kill a soul. It was all stun guns and tranqs. Got noticed a few times but that's what hit and run tactics are for.

My only complaint was that I had to literally eat a candy bar to throw a punch. Id sneak behind some dude and wait for about a minute before I gathered up the strength required to move my fist forward. I mean seriously, that choice was probably worse then the boss fights. Can you imagine if Gordon Freeman had to spend HEV suit energy to swing his crowbar? I would have done much more close range stuff if it weren't for that mistake.

Headshot everyone with my silenced super pistol. Hide in the shadows if I miss the shot or run out of ammo. I do use the Typhoon system, but only as a last resort.

I made an effort to complete every level without being detected once. That also means not using any weapons at all, be they lethal or non lethal. Get in and get out, like a ghost.

All stealth, non-lethal. On hard.

I never fire any weapon, not even non-lethal ones, except for bosses. Instant Takedown-exploit for Namir, Laser Rifle for final boss, Typhoon for the rest.

Stealthy beat the shit out of EVERYONE. Also pacifist and grab every EMP grenade and rokkit I can find, that one two-robot fight at the end of the first China part was piss easy when I could instakill them with grenades.
